2 Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway

Best show of 2016! I give it an A! Great acting, great CGI, great story. Not too mention references to Steven King, Spielberg and whatnot. It has that Steven King feel to it. The opening music is eerie and ominous, perfect for a horror series. I'm glad that there is a season 2 confirmed. Well, this deserves many more seasons. MANY. And I think it'll happen, because if Fuller House can have more than one season, than this overall excellent show can! Can't wait till season 2!
