Did You Know?


In the opening scene the camera pans over a stack of bills...both list Constance's address as 939 Berro Drive Los Angeles, CA. However, one lists the zip code as 90064 which would be near Santa Monica and the other lists it as 90060 which would put it right near Downtown L.A., if the street in question actually existed (it does not).

Tate Langdon: Seriously, though, are you ready for all this? I mean, you never struck me as the diapers and midnight feedings type.
Patrick: Maybe you should have taken a few minutes to get to know me before you stuck a fireplace poker up my ass.
Tate Langdon: Fair enough.

Another Bad One
2 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is no logic to this show and events that happen in previous shows are not continued correctly in subsequent episodes.

This one we see Tate's first encounter with the house.

Everybody is having a party.

Hard to believe there's room the house is so full.

Gay Spock is back.

And Lange wants them gone.

Eventually after unbearable exposition, the baby comes.

Big whoop.

I have to say that the writing sucks on this show.

I think we continue to watch it because it's so freaking cheesy and mindless.

Don'r expect to be frightened in the slightest.
