Are you ready? I am so looking forward to the revenge filled, gritty and Dark television show. I screen the premier and had to watch it a couple of times. It looks like it's suspense filled and is going to have so many twist and turns. I am so happy that I am actually watching the TV show and not living in it. I can't imagine how horrible the living conditions were. Not being able to select which school I wanted to attend and having the wear dresses all the time is so not me. I love to wear dresses by choice. Not because I have to. I love how this show has a couple of familiar faces. Jonathan Pryce, Oona Chaplin, and Michael Kelley just to name a few. Looking forward to watching this show with the Mister. I know he's going to love it.
