    Hi Isabelle, I really like your review, short and sweet! You obviously enjoyed the show. Was there a particular part or aspect of the show you liked? Maybe something technical or maybe the actress who played King was particularly inspiring for you? Including some personal opinions in the review can help people to understand why you liked the show and why they should go and see it. I've wanted to see this one for a while, do you think it's worth it?
