The Episode Review

“Thimble” is easily the most disappointing episode of the series. There is no way that such a poor storyline was approved deliberately by the producers. They must have sneaked the storyline in while not paying attention. It’s not making any sense.

It’s just bad conceptualization and less effective execution. Connie is losing her way of finding solutions to problems and the Thimble promotional display What is the best way to make them connect in one sentence? This is a huge puzzle. In which universe? And What was the creepy man doing in the background, and freaking them all out?

What’s the significance? Why and can Kayla be able to make an advance deposit for her apartment and despite being portrayed as the smartest actor on television, just how does she not know it isn’t real? Wouldn’t she be able to have looked on the internet and searched?

The most harrowing could be Timmy and Eliza. What kind of idiot is it to mollify and shield someone who declared that dream shop (that you also refer to as home) a “rotting body”? Episode 9 of Blockbuster seems to make sense. This show is best kept in a space where nobody can access the show or even realize it exists.
