Cherish The Day Review
“Cherish The Day” is ambitious, but it also comes across as effortless. Which I can only interpret as ambitious in the sense that it doesn’t want to regurgitate what has already been seen with fresh actors. However, when it comes to starting something different, you can see how inspiration and ideas just flow. Making a hit and making more money weren’t the primary goals, but rather seeing success as a result of the artistic process. As a result, the first season of “Cherish The Day” received a favorable rating.
