WHAT THE !%&

What happened? WHY!?!?! This episode was so bad it deserves 0 stars! Following the plot line of seeking Delilah the family has mentioned "things that happened in Japan" but have never discussed it. This episode was to be the humiliating story of why they don't speak of it. As absurd and off the beaten path as this show is normally - "The Game Show" fell WAY off the tracks. It was not funny. It was poorly written yet albeit acted as best as it could have been despite the horrible script. This whole episode should have ended up on the cutting room floor. It was painstaking to watch but I had faith it was leading somewhere - no luck don't waste your time. BAD BAD BAD
