Are y'all serious?
15 May 2018 | by bororicanSee all my reviews

"Emotional ride!" "Such a well written episode". This is a mockery of actual cult classics and it's lazy, cliche. I feel like no one on this show takes their jobs even kind of serious. I like the actors, I blame the writers. But also have to blame the actors for not drawing a line and saying "I'm not doing that, it's dumb as hell"
