  • painful to watch/perhaps could be said to have jumped the shark

    I've been thinking this episode, with Sam/Morgan being forced into competing for the title of heir to the devil to work at his side, taking humanity along a 'path to destruction', may have jumped the shark. The Ben and Sock subplot with the stawtomatic was unfunny and dumb. The acting from all cast seemed stilted and uninspired. The devil's character and storylines seem to have suddenly lost all subtelty. Nothing in this episode ties together nicely. Nothing is really very funny. It is a jumble of silly stuff moving forward very mechanically and unfunnily. I think that watching people behave badly is okay if the humour is there but if not it can be painful to watch as was this episode.
