Loud Clapping Throughout
6 September 2020 | by bethanysignsSee all my reviews

The episode title is fair warning. If you dislike the sound of clapping, skip this episode. In my estimation, there was not enough payoff for sticking through to the end.

I can not tolerate loud, sustained, ecstatic clapping of an audience in any on-screen format. Thus, I watched this episode mostly on mute. If they removed the overused, drawn-out clapping scenes, I wonder how many minutes of show would remain. Are there other people that can not stand loud clapping on TV?

I am enjoying this anthology, and will keep watching for the duration, but this episode grated me from start to finish.
