Politically correct/incorrect
18 December 2017 | by uncleken-57625See all my reviews

I enjoyed the show. I was stunned by the wimp song and how insensitive that was & then equally stunned, as a reviewer before me said...."took the funniest scene of the movie and made it politically correct".

Overall it was good....but I won't watch it again.
