One of my least favorite episodes
2 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

I decided to check this out on Netflix after hearing it was one of the only episodes where the person telling the story actually plays himself in the reenactment. First off, considering this guy is an actor, he does a horrible job. Not only is he completely unbelievable but it's painful to watch how "Hollywood" he tried to make the scenes. Some of the fight scenes are right out of a B-budget action film. At one point he actually says "I'm not in here with you, you're in here with me!". Which is a total rip off from The Watchman. Without giving spoilers he has a few key moments where he could of made the situation better for himself and choose not too for no real reason except he must be an idiot.

Also, just so you have a better understanding, 100 Pakistani Rupees is equal to $1 American dollar. Knowing that conversion will help when he speaks about money he spends, without mentioning that when converted, it's not really that much.
