  1. Being an avid fun of LMH& KGE, ..the delay of the remaining episodes were not appreciated by me..my anticipation lessened…I feel like I am being deprived of my favorite toy, so instead of wanting it so much …I just do not care anymore. One week is a long wait knowing afterwards for nothing….I love LMH & KGE to death, but I want them together…that makes me happier
