Review:

You can really tell the quality of the show increased at season three. The first two seasons weren’t bad but the timeline seemed a bit wonky and each episode ending seemed to happen ten minutes before the show was over. You ended up having three different endings which was weird.

Hank, Mark Feuerstein is a douche bag more often than not and my favorite character is by far Evan, Paulo Costanzo. It use to be Divya, Reshma Shetty, but season four her character became this love sick teenager and it annoyed me. I realize why they did that, she was promised to someone most of her life and she never had a lust filled teenage romance, still doesn’t mean I have to like it. Especially since they added a new doctor in the fourth season that was just so quirky I couldn’t help but want him to get with her.

Season Four had a season finale and then a two part Christmas special. Since I didn’t watch it live I’m not sure how they advertised but that’s how it felt. The season finale ended with an explosion and Hank getting knocked out. Then all of a sudden it’s Christmas? Wtf?

The Christmas Special was just ok, lots of emotional Christmas stuff, some that I feel didn’t need to be there. Did we really need to see Jill? Fuck Jill. Who cares about her? I want to know what happened to Boris. If they’ve killed him I’ll be pissed. The ending completely redeemed all the stupid stuff though.

Seasons One through Four are on Netflix Instant and season Five has aired but isn’t available steaming anywhere. Naturally after the ending of the Christmas special I had to go to Amazon and buy season Five. I did what they wanted me to do. Oh well. I haven’t finished watching it yet so I haven’t included it on this review. So far all I can say is dude that beard looks fake.

Season Six stars on June 10th.

4/5
