I know I don’t cover this show here, but I do watch and it is trending on twitter so I figured I should watch it fast before someone spoiled it for me. I also need something to do with my hands since I bought a bunch of fresh cherries today and they are so good I can’t stop eating them and I am about to blow up like the Cherry version of Violet Beauregarde on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
