OH NO THEY'RE PRECIOUS pic.twitter.com/GqZH4XFCD5 — Vrai Kaiser (@WriterVrai) July 17, 2018 They’re good kids, y’all. They’re really good kids. While the actual plot mechanics get a little bit messy toward the end, the emotional arcs for the young leads are solid, it hits on some very […]
I’m keeping up with more shows than usual this season (which is to say, more than three); and while it’s something of a weak season overall, there are a few attention-grabbers out there.
