    Count me as one who isn't a big fan of flashback or "what-if" episodes. On paper this one seems like it could have been great, but the alternative storylines for each of the characters just mine obvious territory, and are filled with self-referential humor that can be spotted a mile away. Rather than take creative detours with the characters, each one is sort of taken in a 180-degree direction. The problem is that viewers have probably already imagined these alternative routes, so all that happens here is the chance to see them all played out. Throughout the show, I groaned as much as I laughed because I knew what was coming next. This was more filler than anything.
