... an unfortunate way to come to a conclusion
22 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's mentioned somewhere that if you can 'dream it up', well then, it could possibly happen... that might be true except in this instance. For most of the three episodes things moved along fairly believably... except that it was somewhat difficult seeing the to leads together for a majority of the time. Don't know what it really was, but they just did not at all gel together. Anyway, we then arrive at the final few minutes, and all credibility is chucked completely out the window, with an ending so ludicrous it defies all logic. Hope this is not a growing trend, for this is now the second production viewed in succession that completely challenges in similar manner the intelligence of its' audience. Could easily have 'dreamed up' a couple different scenarios that would have better matched the preceding material.
