At roughly 35 minutes in we see an alarm clock with the digits 11:59. The numbers change to 12:00 and a small red light appears on the top left of the clock display. This light signals that the clock is now on PM rather than AM. The scene is supposed to take place at midnight but the clock shows that it is noon. See more »

Unnecessarily hyped episode
11 December 2017 | by blackmetalusbmSee all my reviews

If it wasn't for the unnecessary hype from the writers, it would have been a slightly above average episode.

I was not shocked, and I do not have anything noteworthy to talk about the next day.

I think the crew should just be quiet and focus on writing and filming. Doesn't mean they can't listen to what people are saying, but constantly engaging with fans and telling them things and hyping things and not living up to it certainly can't be good for ratings.
