  1. My favorite serials:
    1. Sherlock;
    2. Game of Thrones;
    3. The Big Bang Theory;
    4. American Horror Story.
    Favorite tv series my boyfriend – One Piece :)

  2. Nice taste.

    I have never watched American Horror Story and, you won’t believe it, Game of Thrones even though everyone, including my brother, have been raving about it. I need to. The only issue is that I tend to watch series with my wife and kids and, obviously, GoT is not for kids…
