    I LOVEEED IT, I remember I watched like 10 eps in one night..just couldn't stop. I def. recommend this series because 1) Roger is hilarious and 2) I really liked the plot. One thing I didn't like was the ending and the alternative ending. Yeah, I also heard about the sequel..can't wait though image.
