I-Am-Not-Penelope
March 20, 2018
This show without a doubt changed my life. Every time I watch it I have to get up and dance. From the hard begining to the sweet end this show had me captivated. All of the relationships and drama of the show only made it more fun to be a fan of. I would recommend this show to anyone. From Klaine to Finchel and even Samcedes, the actors behind them definetly had their work cut out for them, but they gave their best efforts and 100% succeeded in making this show the very definition of a masterpiece. The trueness of the characters and their feelings made this show captivating and exciting to watch through every episode. If you are thinking about watching this show it is worth it to give it a chance. Every episode will have you rooting for a different relationship. If you've made it this far than you know just how passionate I am about this series. Every great thing has to come to an end, and I couldn't have asked for a better one. I wont give any spoilers, but I can guarantee that it is a good one. Watch along with me and give this show a chance.
