Sean Bean - Legends

Don’t Kill Sean Bean?

Okay, I was watching the premiere of new TNT Network show, Legends, last Wednesday, which was pretty good I thought. However, call it a sneaking a suspicion if you will, but I’m thinking that, when the new show eventually concludes… The final scene will be Bloody Legendary! O_o

Robin Williams 1951-2014
