What happened to the quality of writing?
6 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

Love this program. Hated this episode. There was such a downturn in the quality of writing in this episode that I was shocked. It felt like a second rate play put on by boy scouts. The plot points were weak and transparent. This can often be forgiven when humour compensates however even this took a dramatic turn south. The characterisation was completely at odds with history. This episode completely lost the charm and consistency which has brought about the program's success. The impression left was whiny, vapid, and evoked an instant desire to find out what happened to the writing. I can only surmise that this is a symptom of 'new' writers, Matthew Miller and Scott Rosenbaum, who have primarily been executive producers? Please bring back the old writers. I felt so disappointed that I've gone to the trouble of registering so that I can write a review. P.S. IMDb what is the point of a ten line minimum review?
