Critics and Connoisseurs

Club Description:

First and foremost, I would like to make it clear that this is not an elitist club. Our goal is to come up a list of highly recommended quality shows that are exemplary either within genre or universally. However, everyone has different standards when it comes to this, so I have made up a short list of basic requirements with the goal of ensuring maximum participation from our members.

Guys, I'll be off today, travelling to our local Comic Con. So, I may not be able to vote for next week. My votes would be no, idk and... no. :)

I'll take a lot of pictures, so if anyone wants to see them I'll link them later =D

Have a nice week, everyone! xoxoxo
