  • Directorial debut of the unpaid intern

    There were quite a few things about this episode that should have been red flags to the network. First, when did Fin become such an over the top pain to work with? Fin's attitude was not in keeping with what has been established for the character, unless next week she is planning a coop and takes over both the day and night shifts so that she can rule with an iron fist. Next, who was in charge of editing this week? There were so many jump cuts in the middle of conversations that this looked as if it was pieced together from several months of shooting without any regard for continuity. I guess the same person was in charge of the neighborhood wide shot with glowing Vegas in the background. You could almost see the tape where they pieced the two images together. The continuity issues continued with Greg finding a hospital bracelet in a wrecked car and then thinking that the wreck was the likely cause of the hospital stay. So how could someone drive a wrecked car with no brakes home from the hospital? Oh yeah, the story was meh with five red herrings but the "mastermind" ended up being [spoiler alert] the spoiled daughter who never got to do anything she wanted. I kind of expect a little more but after 13 and a half seasons, I guess autopilot has been earned.
