It’s like the writer KNOWS this epi was boring but won’t come out and say it. She says “full-bore” and then admits that moments might have been boring, but then she spends the rest of the review covering it up. No! We mustn’t say this episode was BORING.
Look, the production values are incredible and we can all happily spend hours watching Mike be Mike. But take out the Mike part and the show was boring. The writers DO need to move the story along.
