It was an ordinary night of channel surfing. I came across the channel airing this episode. Since nothing else was on, and I had missed only the first five minutes of the episode, I decided to watch it - after all, one reviewer had given it the full 10/10 - the best of the best there could *ever* be. This had to be the TV equivalent of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
It was not. A lazily written, unoriginal plot is so thin the episode has to fill its running time with clips from past episodes clumsily shoehorned in. They are poor. In fact, *everything* is poor and not even unintentionally funny. You cannot believe how long the opening title sequence (I have seen some episodes in the past) and the end credits run - and that happens on *every* episode! A pitiful solution to pass as much running time as possible every week without spending any money on script, filming and other things the show-runners obviously considered an inconvenience in their hunt for as much profit out of as little expenses as possible. They even play the title music over a fight scene, in order to avoid having to pay someone to actually compose original music specifically for the scene.
This is dreadful. 2/10 - there are few things worse out there. But now, seeing how few people have rated these episodes, I have found a calling
to watch the remaining 32 episodes and rate them. Once in a while,
one has to watch really bad TV to appreciate the really good TV even more.
