8.21 Review, kinda


Well, I must admit that I had high hopes for this episode. And what we got was rather disappointing and boring. Boring. It was simply boring.

And it bothered me that the second story line with Grover, Tani and Junior was actually the better one. The seasoned cop giving a teaching lesson to the young ones. That was nice to watch, but wasn’t really that interesting either.

And the McHarry Part? Yawn. Except for the few seconds on the yacht. But other than that? Nope, not a noteworthy episode. I won’t even waste my time with complaining about a certain character.

So, discuss it away. How did you like it?
