The Wall Between Us

As the new addition in the genre of “cute girls doing not so cute girl things,” there is Princess Principal. It’s a historical-ish drama taking place in what could be an alternate Berlin Wall situation taking place in England. The country has been torn apart into a monarchy and a commonwealth. There to make sure the country as a whole does not get overrun by those that what to ruin in are a group of young spies. They are all amazing, well written, and have great chemistry with one another. The story, for the most part, is told out of order, but one can get the gist and see how much they care about one another. It’s a great show that needs a sequel. I NEED to know what happens next. There was such a huge cliffhanger.
