Certainly not the Pilot
8 October 2017 | by UnknownianSee all my reviews

I can't say this episode wasn't done well, however, it doesn't even vaguely resemble the pilot, or any of the episodes since, except last week's episode also directed by Adam Arkin.

Are the writers bi-polar? Did the Epix brass instruct the writers and director to take the series 180 degrees from a dry comedy to a serious gangster show? Did Adam Arkin take it upon himself to eliminate all comedy from the last two episodes, by exchanging laughs for death, and tears of joy for tears of sadness and pools of blood? Or, is no one in charge of this flip flop series, and each director makes his/her own version of Get Shorty when it's their turn?

If the show continues down this serious path next season, I'll leave the reviews for those that love serious gangster shows, and can review this series with enthusiasm. However, considering the obvious comedic structure of the subject matter, I don't see how it can continue to inspire serious gangster fans.

As for myself, I was more than just fine with the tone that was set with the pilot: "The Pitch", that got me hooked on this series in the first place, and I will discontinue viewing this series unless it gets back on the pilot's path.

What these last two episodes have done, is left me not caring "at all" what the next episode is about. Bottom line, it is a terrible season finale, especially if you were expecting the usual Get Shorty laughs.

The name of this series should be: "Pot Luck", because you never know what version you're going to get.
