What happened to the casting, directing and acting?
23 January 2019 | by snootusmaximusSee all my reviews

Whatever happened to the originally great casting, acting and directing? How did DiP go from the likes of Ben Miller, Kris Marshall, Danny John Jules and Sara Martins, to the character that Shyko Amos plays (awfully)?

Did the writers and director change from season to season, to the point where season 8, especially episode 2 looks like it was written and directed by rank amateurs (or high school kids) trying to copy Naked Gun or Police Academy?

This episode could possibly have the worst rating of all the seasons and episodes. Are the marketers, writers, directors, producers and even Robert Thorogood paying attention to the depths to which this formerly wonderful series is plumbing?

Where the original seasons focused on locale, and combined it with brilliant acting and subtle comic relief, this episode looks like a boring, crude remake of the Scooby Doo team.
