Awesome, Intense

Brutal and honest, there is so much I could say for this gripping drama. It gives you insight to such tragedy that can tear families apart and then gripping to come back together. Highly recommend.

Rectify Time Wasted

I enjoy different genres of entertainment, yet I'm consistent in that I like my main characters to be Super heroes of their world. Daniel shuffles around Donny h in the first season and half, that I began to wonder if this was Sofi and he was sent down from another planet and having a hard time with the terrain of his new galaxy. I couldn't tell if he weree smart, stupid, handicap, athletic, happy, sad, mad, bad ass, or goat. Daniel's sister is the sole reason I didn't fall asleep on every episode.
