Wow, I think I'm speechless...after all that build up, I was hoping for a big bang towards the end. It's probably safe to say that the trailers and the commercials were better than the actual episode. And this is coming from me...a HUGE fan *sob*
Reason 1: Who the hell charges in with guns, knowing that they weren't going to shoot their friends/neighbours? Outnumbered and outwitted, Jason and Andy went in anyway only to get taken over immediately.
Reason 2: Eric's visit to the queen didn't really lead to anything. After all that talk of Sam asking Eric for a favour, he stayed playing Yahtzee?!? I was definitely hoping for more Eric action (preferably half naked) and I kept waiting and waiting and then....???? WTFudge? That was it till next season?
Reason 3: They way they got rid of Eggs, it's like his character no longer served any purpose so how do we kill him? Let's just make him feel bad and then shoot him. Done!
Reason 4: What's with the weak explainations and wrap up in the bar? Who the heck were the 2 women and what's up with Mountain Dew?
During the entire epi, I kept waiting and waiting for the big climax that never came. The first half of the season was so awsome and now I'm left unsatisfied. Thank you Alan Ball. All I can say is, I hope next season's adaptation is FAR better than what the current group of writers can dish out because even if they have Eric in his birthday suit every epsoide, I'm not sure I can bare to watch it.
Let me know what you guys think. Am I just expecting too much becuase the books set such a high bar? Or was it as bad as I thought it was?
