This episode was absolutely ridiculous!!! Stupid idea! I mean, I was really excited to see Bruce coming back, and I had high expectations! But what in the world is this? Have all the good writers left? This is utter crap!!
First of all, why are all the people more concerned about winning the race then the missing woman? They just continue on with their preparations and don't even care that people have this lady and have threatened to kill her!! Second, since when can Johnny get visions off of animals? Seriously, he can touch the horse and have a vision from the horse's eyes? The black and white was pretty funny. But this is so stupid!!
Third, I feel like I just watched an hour-long commercial for the Visa check card. Seriously. This is stupid. Who says, "Yeah, with this Visa check card I can make any transaction - and fast!" Not those exact words, but come on?! And then they proceed to zoom in on the logo and hold there for about 10 seconds. TWICE. What the crap?!
Fourth, what was with all the corny lines? do we really need a bunch of crap like, "i knew they were meant to be together when they first met. They talked for hours, and i missed my appointment." what in the world??? and why don't they actually let us see Bruce propose to her? it's much better than the corny shot they had of the ring on her finger. I mean, that could've worked instead of a proposal, actually in a myriad of ways, but they way they played it out, it came at a point when the audience sort of needed that relief!! and we didn't get it!
Fifth, since when is Stillson a flaming environmentalist? huh? So, i'm pretty sure this show has never been too focused on political leanings. Especially since it could be insinuating that a particular political party could result in the apocalypse. So, this was just dumb. Do we really need a ten minute focus on planting trees, and a little kid crying? and some weird story about Stillson's twisted dad killing a dog? what the heck?
This episode was STUPID! and absolutely painful to watch!!!
