Worst writing, directing and acting.
27 November 2019 | by TheTopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

The episode was a disgraceful joke. Seems like minimal effort on the acting - especially Tolman, who was the worst in this episode, lazy writing getting more riddled with plot holes, and cheesy dialogue - especially between the very unconvincing FBI agent and Jo. Can they not cast a character/actor that actually fits their role - and acts it? The only convincing ones are Terry O'Quinn and the adorable Alexa Swinton as Piper. Why can't they stick with at least one of the writers being a constant? What was the point of the scene with the expensive sound system? Just unnecessary filler. This episode may as well have been a 3-4 minute movie trailer. It was so predictable, minus the ending twist, of which seemed to have been written in so randomly and picked out of a hat, it shows the inexperience of the writers. Then there's the directing - Jessica Lowrey failed to direct her cast properly. I'm losing more and more interest to the point of getting annoyed with the writers and directors even more after each episode. What started off very interesting, entertaining, suspenseful and engaging, is turning out to be stale, boring and predictable. It's a generous 4/10 from me, all going to Piper.
