Love the show can’t wait to be an extra

If any character got the ax it would be the good for nothing step-son of Kevin Costner. He has no respect for his parent or anyone else, killed his birth Dad & is always taking bad advice and trying to ruin the one who raised him. He's a real loser and I hope this review doesn't lock in his part! I'm a good loving & caring mom & grandmother, just diagnosed with Lymphoma but I'd still like to slap the s__t out of that good for nothing no good! Do you get my drift?
