Setup to a finale
28 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was curious of some of the reviews of this ep. It's supposed to be funny, light, and... CHEAP. Since the finale (I presume) broke the bank

  • they needed something minimal - including personnel (I presume MS was


working doubles there for a few weeks?). I don't get how others cant see a larger context.

It sets up certain things - including the sense of "goodbyes" . I'd like to see daddy, mum, baby again sometime --- but - doubt that (fine line between funny occasional eps - and farce). The 2 men and a baby is a bit silly - but again: budgets, schedule, etc. This one of necessity had to be written with a relatively simple concept - again dropping in various foreshadows.
