Terrible cliché and writing
24 November 2015 | by (Keele) – See all my reviews

Introducing a pet dog and then killing it off is not only disgusting but an example of terrible writing.

The fact that none of the characters appears to care that their pet has been run over makes them utterly detestable people and really changes them.

I enjoyed the first series, and worried that the new dog would just be a cheap way to sadden the episode. I've seen way too many films and TV shows already which try to formulaically introduce some emotion into a comedy by killing a beloved animal. Writers should note that this never works and almost invariably exposes you as a bad writer who thinks clichés are the way to appeal to your viewers.

Disappointing to say the least.
