  • Show is saved by opening short 'Last Clear Chance'

    7.5
    The opening short is great, and deservedly made one of the 'shorts' collections. Riffing on the overly talkative, preachy police offer is superb and the other comments about this agri-community of rubes is hilarious.



    The move, RSS, is so bad that it leaves the crew with very little to work with. They do a nice job, considering. However, there is such limited action and a confusing, drab collection of characters - the result is a hard-to-watch episode. This episode shows that the movie selection is critical. A movie cannot be simply poor or ridiculous. This movie was bland and boring to a prohibitive extent, and left little of interest to make fun of. The 'action' takes place in a few overly used locations, and there are endless cutaways to what seems to be the same footage of: cars driving, the radar HQ and a not-so-stealthy helicopter.
