One Romance and Two Thrillers This Week

Will wonders never cease? I’m actually interested in all three of the new dramas airing this week, though my desire to watch them varies significantly. Honestly, if I pick any of these up, it will probably be determined by which of these I can get with my standard Viki Pass. Will you be checking out any of them?
