  • nauseating

    so fake. terribly forced. full of epiphanies if you never matured beyond the age of 12. the Host is full of herself. the dialogue is from an underfunded hallmark movie. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻 I really tried to give it a fair shot with several episodes. But it’s got almost nothing to do with design. they can’t even get the basics right. it’s just garbage.
