Jesus... Could it be any duller?
26 October 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching the episode of the season entitled 'Everybody ought to have a maid'. Ever since the first 10 minutes I considered the episode to be very boring and unfortunately my opinion didn't change at all. The episode seemed charmless (I always felt attracted by this show for its witty lines and good scenes), the lines were dull and the plot seemed not very inspired.

Unfortunately I've been having this kind of feeling ever since the first episode of the season aired. Are the writers running out of interesting ideas for an interesting plot? Where are the once famous witty and bitchy lines that made me fall in love with this show? Unfortunately and to my disappointment long GONE & AWAY.

This was more than boring.
