La La Land
8 June 2018 | by Brave_TraveIerSee all my reviews

How can this episode not have 1 review?? It accomplished and established so much just in the pilot making it an incredible experience!

I'm starting to think no one reads these individual reviews but I hope this one is read because maybe like you, you JUST started it or are debating whether to watch it. Well, WATCH IT!!

I hate musicals then came La La Land and I loved that and this was everything and more during the songs that are so catchy and creative too. The production is impressive and beautiful. Some of the things she does i can remember doing too.

This series is highly original and excessively fun!! I can tell this is a special series that is massively underrated and I admit I'm part of the problem coming to it this late but I'm so happy I finally arrived! West covenia...!!!!! Bravo a definite 10/10
