    Glad Jim Sturgess got a new show. Can’t wait to see it. The trailer for Frontier looks good, Can’t wait to check out the show.

    Living in Canada, I got to see on Discovery channel earlier last month and can attest that Frontier was great! I didn’t know Momoa could act until I saw this show. It’s brutal, violent, dramatic and very binge worthy.

    Yay! More Ariel :D

    Please make Ariel a regular….. Not only JoAnna literally was born to play Ariel but OUAT could use a new regular because the old recipe is clearly not working. Send Rumple, Belle and Henry away and add Ariel and Pinocchio back permanently.
