  • A half human/half insect? Seriously?

    And I thought 'Jackass' was stupid and dangerous, this is the amateur version. I hate bugs to begin with and this was so lame, no attempt to even remotely explain it. Are they even hiring competent writers by this point or any hack will do? This is pathetic in an alarming long line of mediocre writing. I'm just hoping to finish out the season by this point and can only hope that there are some decent episodes along the way… though if this is an example, I'm not holding my breath. I wonder how embarrassed the actors must be to have to act this out, heaven forbid there be some actual character development.
