At least we got a few seconds of Roald Dahl!!
21 February 2016 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Connecticut is the setting, young Gregory is holidaying in the area, he encounters young Jane who takes him home to meet mother Marjorie. Marjorie tells Jane to prepare for the 'ritual,' it's very mysterious. Jane is convinced her mother despises her. Gregory explains he was a teacher, and had left his job, and was now spending some time in the country. Jane reveals it's the first day of the hunting season, and that three years ago, Marjorie's second husband had accidentally shot his son Stanley in an accident, then turned the gun on himself.

I see they tried to get Roald Dahl back on board to add something back into the episodes, that now feel alien to the opening few series. I think the producers realised by this point that the show's future was now very much in doubt, they definitely lost their way in this seventh series.

This is as bland an episode as you could ever watch, a wafer thin plot, vacant performances and poor, dull direction. I don't really get the point of the episode, it's such a nothing non entity of a story.

Not much to love, 3/10
