Exploring AfterLife on Netflix

BovaryCee: So it’s my first time watching #AfterLife on @Netflix I’m on Episode 2. (Episode 1 was a fast introduction.) Still trying to find the “sweet point” (my spot where I love the show). I will obviously be binge watching Season 1 tonight. (There’s no EastEnders…)
