Well, that sucked. I was shocked by how much I hated this episode. The entire thing is a mix of being character driven and comedy, and if you don’t like the characters or the humor, you’re screwed.
I did not like any of the main characters at all. The first girl, she got on the nerves right off the bat. SHAFT’s trademark of making characters overreact did not help, but just made her seem loud and obnoxious to me. The other girl was kinda funny with her passion, except that her only motivation is she has feelings for a guy who has feelings for the first girl. It makes her a very shallow, dull character, and it’s not as if she’s going to hook up with the guy. The old lady was freaking awesome, but had no screentime compared to the girls, and ugh, I hated those girls.
On top of that, it just wasn’t that funny. I can think of one part I cracked a smile.
In the end, the attempt was here, but something just didn’t click with me. Maybe I need to accept that I don’t get SHAFT.
