The worst episode ever
21 April 2012 | by (El Salvador) – See all my reviews

I have to say I love "The Closer". And even though Fred Willard is the guest star, I had no idea this episode was going to be as awful as it was. Starting with the fact that they include Buzz's sister into the plot for NO reason. They tend to keep people in the office (because how else could they use them for the storyline?) but usually we're talking about relevant people or people with some important connection - either to Pope or to Brenda, not to Buzz. Why the hell should the Watsons be in charge of taking care of Santa? The whole happiness thing was garbage - it forced the producers to use an awful score that made the whole episode look like a cheap sitcom. Even the use of the Title felt so awkward and I felt embarrassed for Kyra. It is the first time I have seen an episode whose ending I'm looking forward to. It was a terrible mess and it added nothing to the background story.
