The Episode Review
Another time, another parody – that is devoid of humor or fun. In simple terms, the show isn’t going to make much sense to those who haven’t watched the shows they mock. Do you think it’s worth watching? There’s nothing to be admired but the popular stories that the show is based on make it enjoyable to watch.
