This far, no further.
11 November 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is as far as I can watch this show, I'm done...

Fi turned into a neurotic, needy, girlie girl. Constantly voicing her feelings and worrying about things like broken nails! The rest of the cast isn't any better though, with everyone completely turning amnesiac and forgetting about their long standing friendships with each-other, they've now turned to bribing each-other to get things done. That's when they're not self involved and going off their hinges.

I have no idea how these episodes keep getting good ratings, granted, with only a little over 100 voters, at least a good portion of those have to be the people involved with making the show itself!

This is now a run of the mill soap opera trash show, fitting well with things like Dallas or Santabarbara and the likes. (those two references are the only ones I have, I've learned to stay away from pure drama soaps)

I was hoping it would get better but it's actually getting worse. The dialogs are given to us in full auto mode, sometimes starting exactly as the scenes change locations as if the discussion has already been going on for a while and we're jumping in for the highlights but without understanding what's going on, why they're there, whom they're talking to and what the hell they're actually doing. There's no more considerations given to what path to take, it's now turned into some weird crazy imaginings of a demented ex-writer with Alzheimer locked away at some facility. Plots are now going in directions like "We'll just get the red feather from the blue parrot and switch it with the giraffes hat, and avoid the stares of the green unicorn" every time I'm like "Uh? why? What uh? Wee... That makes no sense at all!"

Sadly this is as far as I can take it. Too bad, this was one of my favorite shows till season 5 happened...oh well...
