TV :: Patriot (Seasons 1 & 2 Streaming on Amazon)

I cannot even begin to tell you how much I’ve enjoyed binge watching this show over the past week and a half. So different, so funny, so intelligent…did I say how different and weird? So weird. Give it three minutes and if you don’t love it, it’s not for you. If you do enjoy the first three minutes, then you’re cool. Ok? Ok.
