Still didn't quite take off
26 June 2016 | by juanmaffeoSee all my reviews

It seems that the writers are juggling so many continues plots for I don't know what reason. You got the pilot story, the Elaine and her psychiatrist story and Jerry and his watch story. It is quite obvious why only one of these stories continued up until the end of season. Elaine's story isn't that bad, but it really feels substanceless. And the freaking watch plot is obnoxious.

On technical aspects, the episode is really dull. They tried to make the simultaneous stories contrast with each other but the script is so poor that it didn't quite land.

Thank God this multiple side stories ended from the next episode on. Now you'll get the real juice that is Season 4.
