My friend made me watch this entire show because...honestly, I can't figure out what redeeming qualities he saw in it. He'd just been bothering for months and finally I'm like "fine, I'll watch it," and then he kept doing the "it get's better, I swear" routine. I ended up slogging through the whole thing.
