Worst episode...why? Politics
25 August 2018 | by francisco-a-nietoSee all my reviews

This show is usually great. This episode however was filled with political jabs and undertones that was just unnecessary and poorly chosen. I'm not left or right on the political scheme but I absolutely hate when writers have to put their political motives into the script. That's what's wrong with media today...no separation of entertainment and politics.
