The ache is not because the contentious issues of life and death came into the storyline but because the writers beat me over the head with them. Life's lessons in a sitcom should be lightly sprinkled in amongst the comedy beats not figuratively scrawled in a fat crayon on the back drop of the stage. It's as if the new season's creative team already know they are in a death spiral to cancellation and are rushing to get as many rantings into the episodes before the axe falls. This reminds me of the way Designing Women and MASH turned in their last seasons. Extra Preachy - now with fewer pesky laugh calories burned away in every can.
