Worst. Pie. Ever.
So yeah, I get that the series is going darker and more twisted with each season of Gotham but cannibalism really hits such an ICK button for me. I'm all for the shock and awe of the messed up origin stories of our DC-verse characters, but holy gag-reflex, Batman. It was horribly cheap emotional blackmail to force Penguin into gorging on the Sweeney Todd-inspired meat pies made from the homeless and a waste of Robin Lord Taylor's considerable talents to boot. Furthermore, the motivations behind Professor Pyg's exploits are so mired in crazy that it's not even clear if he understands his reasons. If there was a plot-related purpose behind such a brutal power play, I might be able to stomach it but, as it played out, there was no way for me to swallow it even in such an over-the-top season.
Larry David Crosses the Line
I have to go with Larry David's opening monologue on SNL. Holocaust jokes in general are not very funny, but we really didn't need to hear jokes about hitting on women in concentration camps. The whole thing just felt odd and uncomfortable.
They could have spared us all that abomination of a season where only two people actually played Big Brother. It was a total sh*tshow, and they should have just pulled the plug on the season early. Don't ask me how long I'll be badmouthing the season because the short answer is FOREVER.
I love Jenna Elfman, but Imaginary Mary was doomed before it even received a time slot. The concept had promise, but the writing was lazy and the laughs were few and far between. The title character of Mary was too hokey and acted as more of a cheerleader for Jenna Elfman's character, Alice. It would have made for a far more entertaining series had Mary been a mischievous character that wreaked some havoc in Alice's adult life.
One Step Forward, Two Back
So many people were excited about Tyler Posey's stint on Jane the Virgin, especially when his character casually revealed that he was bisexual. There was this great episode where Jane had to unpack that and sort out her feelings and Adam educated her, and overall it was a fairly decent arc that was quietly groundbreaking for the LGBT community and fans, and then shortly after they ruined if and his character by making him all flaky and abandoning Jane. It was such a problematic and controversial choice after this huge step. It had fans bitter for weeks. They could have just left that out or something.
A Pretty Crappy Ending
Seven years of build up just to find out that it was Alex Drake, a character we never met and Spencer’s secret twin on Pretty Little Liars? I could have accepted it because sure, it was shocking, but many fans figured t out beforehand so I was kind of expecting it. But the most infuriating moment had to be Mona keeping both Alex and Mary in her doll shop is France. Listen, I get that there are many unrealistic moments on the show but this one takes the cake. How would Mona ever get away with this? How long could she play it off? We need a sequel....
