Entertainer’s crabby producer throws a tantrum
by | April 8, 2016 | 49 Comments
I really hope this drama lives up to its ridiculous teasers. I’ll be disappointed if Entertainer takes itself too seriously, or if the teasers end up being false advertising, which has happened enough times for me to be wary.
