No point in continuing, getting worse and worse by the minute
19 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This weeks episode was a Fail. It started with much of the sameness as the rest of this dull, clumsy, made for TV, predictable and entirely stupid series. Although this episode has got me angry at how low it has gotten, becoming nothing more then a lesson in stupidity. No longer is it trying to be vaguely clever or even slightly intelligent wrapped up in light entertainment. No, you really would have to be a moron suffering from some inbred mental trauma to find this even remotely enjoyable.

The boy runs off to the neighbouring farm where he alerts the yokel farmers. Who after phone the police, while they are speaking on the phone to the police the killers kill them. These killers go back to their farmhouse with nothing has happened at all stupidity about, and who is this new guy dumb look on their faces. At their farmhouse Henk a new killer tells them to leave so with smiles they begin packing, not kill the fat Asian in the basement or we have been made by the police they slowly pack up. Henk is packing the car he put in the boot he closes an open bag which is full of guns. He see a cop and then goes after him without a gun because this means he can use his ninja skills to wrestle a gun from that cop and in doing so kills the cop. This alerts Mr piggy super cop Bacon who turns up and shoots Henk in the arm freeze framed, but kills him instantly. The gunshots have alerted the other killers who open the bag with guns take them and go out to investigate instead of getting the F out of there. Meanwhile Joe wife alludes the dumbest of FBI agents who is a image of the butler from Django. Is picked up by the van man another killer who she dumbly trusts to get into his car in yet another made for TV moment.

The last 10 minutes of this episode was in definition of stupid. I have watched this show its and **** for to many minutes now it is time to switch off I couldn't care what the conclusion is undoubtedly while be an anti climax in absolute stupidness. I should have been watching clowns at least they don't have to pretend to be stupid, really you think.....?
