Not well written, they destroyed the Peter character
10 July 2016 | by ameliek81See all my reviews

It's great to go back to an old TV favourite and watch with new perspective.

This is the worst episode of the series. The writers ruined the Peter Benton character for this, which is strange seeing as it was all about him! He suddenly becomes passive, friendly, talkative, etc. Each story-line was rushed and packed in. This felt like a filler episode, as though they just took a rejected script and went with it because there was nothing else.

Adding insult to injury is the interaction between Benton and Jeannie. They haven't interacted all season and suddenly they have a heart to heart? The writers did a disservice to both these interesting characters.

This episode feels like a bunch of mismatched puzzle pieces thrown together.

Disappointing, to say the least.
