I love this show...but what the heck?
24 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been watching this show from the beginning. Its great. Great writing plots, characters, everything its been original and creative and fun. It combines everything great about acting and entertainment: action, romance, humor etc.

BUT FOR WHATEVER REASON THIS EPISODE, THE PREMIERE OF SEASON 5 IS THE WORST WRITING I've EVER SEEN ON THE SHOW.

It sounds like they brought in 40 somethings living in their basements writing fanfiction to take over the show. Nothing humorous, nothing interesting, nothing profound. Literally a high schooler could writer better than this.

I don't understand because this show is amazing it has amazing writers. They manage to juggle humor and useful information along with amazing twists and plot lines. So why does it now sound like a fanfiction soap???

It seems like Matt Nix either fired or hired the wrong people.
