My reaction
Concept:2/4 (Indifferent)
Story:1/4 (Bad) Painfully predictable.
Characters:3/4 (Good)
Dialog:0/4 (Terrible) The show’s pretty much become a parody of itself. Lots of hilarious stuff that’s not meant to be funny.
Pacing:2/4 (Indifferent) Slow to get started, and when it does get exciting, it’s over too quickly.
Cinematography:2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design:3/4 (Good)
Acting:3/4 (Good)
Music:2/4 (Indifferent)
Subjective Rating: 6/10 (Okay, 2/4 (Indifferent)). Much better than season two, but that’s not too hard.
Objective Rating (Average):2/4 (Indifferent)
