Jumping the proverbial shark
24 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode made me glad they ended the show after this series. Most episodes of R&T have a few specious elements, but we love the characters and the tone so we overlook the flaws in the plot. But this one had too many egregious bits of business. For example, after finding a baby, they bring him to the car and coo and cuddle, then leave him in the car while both women go up to the house. Why? Who would do that? You either take the kid along, or one stays with him while the other goes for help. Later, Laura sees two young people (the ones who lost the baby) and instead of just telling them that she found a baby, she says something like "Have you two lost something? Perhaps something silly?" Again... no one would actually do that. That's about the point where I gave up and decided to move on to the next episode.
