Has any other show nosedived as quickly as this does from Episode 5 onwards? The last 4 episodes are a disgrace. I can’t believe it’s the same programme.
The actors are all decent. It’s just the scripts and situations that are bad. The show was always a bit left of centre, but now it’s just stupid.
I say this, but I’m so sick of Gillian Anderson’s fake Margaret Thatcher accent. She’s probably the most annoying character in the show. After that idiot teacher I mentioned previously of course.
I’m glad I’m not the only one who was thinking it had jumped the shark a bit. I still love most of the characters, but it’s like most of them had just become so much more one-dimensional. Eric in particular was a victim of this - I used to love him but the character was constantly dialled up to 10 and he was honestly just irritating for the most part.
Agree with most of this, but every time Gillian Anderson said ‘Yakob’ I wanted to punch her in the face. I know that was his name and it’s how it’s pronounced, but it’s just her.Ah, I don't think I care about these kids anymore... most of the relationships turned to complete mush in this season. Any tension was resolved in the span of two episodes max, everything felt so easily written off (Jakob is a jerk? Here's a one minute explanation why!), Hope was basically a cartoon villain... If it weren't for My Other Mother, Gillian, I probably wouldn't keep watching.
