Preaching, straw men and character flaws
21 April 2020 | by stephenthompsonpSee all my reviews

This was the obligatory PC anti-gun episode that was the ideological sequel to the obligatory abortion episode that the writers had to get in before the show is cancelled so that they can one day look back and delude themselves into believing that they taught their daring dogmas to the ignorant masses. In reality we all rolled our eyes at their transparency. These guys have done a pretty good job at telling some fun stories over the past 7 years, but they just don't have what it takes when it comes to preaching, especially when it is obvious that they don't have any real grasp of the subject they're presenting. Writers, guys... please leave the preaching to the priests. This stuff is beyond absurd.

I gave it 5 stars only because there was enough intrigue between Red, Elizabeth and the task force to make the episode watchable. I almost turned it off five minutes in, but I didn't. Overall there was about 15 minutes worth watching.
