giving up already?
9 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While the first few episodes of season 8 have been disappointing compared to previous standards, "Lotto" was so poor as to make me stop bothering to make the effort. The premise of the warehouse team quitting after winning the lottery and the rest of the crew living in a what-if-induced state of depression and wishful thinking is not funny; its just boring. The elongated scenes between a depressed Darrel and new-boss Andy have little to offer by way of writing or acting.

This season is in danger of being irrelevant. Ed, John, Rainn, Mindy, etc. are all talented - but they need a source of gravity to revolve around. The addition of James Spader offered endless possibility - but the writing squandered his time in the first few episodes and he didn't even appear in #3. Where is the guy who said, "the fallacy is that it is up to the steam-roller. It is up to the object, whether it will be flattened or not...." That guy and his intensity have not shown up at all in season 8. Let's get him in the game!!
