Slow and lazy writing
17 August 2016 | by seshasai-trisSee all my reviews

The screenwriters have lingered long enough!

The character building is over , setting up the environment is over. Yet , there is no progress made. There is absolutely no tension in the show. the writers / directors are not able to make us (audience ) root for any character. The riveting factor is nothing .

We have seen several minutes of footage of a leg with eczema or whatever , but they're not satisfied . They keep is giving more of it diluting the essence of the show .

Last episode ending had a great lead on the trial which wasn't even used or brought up in this one ..

Very bad !
