  1. Nirvana In Fire 2 and season 2 of Advisors Alliance is probably better.

  2. I watched Mr. right for the first two episodes because it's filmed in Belgium and in the city I live, Antwerp. I do have to say that the drama made a big deal of a lot of things and have a stereotyping that's not really true to how Belgians are.
    First off, the pool party and how they do it? Not European, but that typical American get drunk kind of party, we don't do that here in Belgium. Belgian people can't speak English that very well so I'm pretty sure the hotel scenes and cast members are not filmed in the small country. And what's with the beer making while wearing those horrible cloaks? :P
    Those were a few things that they have overdone it and aren't really truthful to how things are but hey, there are really nice things shown like how they circling around one place while in the car xD
    I haven't continued watching because it didn't grab my attention yet but my parents are loving it! :D
    I hear them laugh and discuss about the things happening so I'm sure it's worth watching if you overlook what they did to the scenes in Antwerp :P
    Are you searching for something that's just fun to watch and not expecting Antwerp to be like how they acted out, then do try it! A romcom about enemies getting closer, cliche, but it works ;)
