Should You Watch One Week Friends?

Sure.

Why?

It’s a nice break from the usual stuff with its interesting take on mental problems. Might seem boring at first, but you slowly get into it as a boy and girl struggle through a tough situation. It’s very sweet and laid back, and will make you both sad and amused. Take it, or leave it? Take it, and you’ll be rooting for them; leave it, and you won’t feel guilty you’re passing up on anything spectacular.
