18 Again: Episodes 15-16 Review

Why do good dramas have to come to an end? That’s my biggest complaint about 18 Again right now. But it’s also true that when you drag out your goodbyes, they lose their potency, and although the drama really worked hard to stretch itself over sixteen episodes, the finale was nothing short of perfection. Saner,… Continue reading 18 Again: Episodes 15-16 Review
