Underground - Presentation

     Why did I start watching Underground ? For two very personal reasons. Firstly for two actresses : Adina Porter (The 100) and mostly for Jurnee Smolett-Bell (Friday Night Lights). Secondly because I had never watched a series from the very first episode, and I have to admit that I'm very excited to discover Underground from the beginning.
     Moreover, it's an historical series, which makes it into my kind of shows. So I didn't hesitate and went for it. Well, I wasn't disappointed.

     So, not to belabour the point, here's a summary and many other informations.
