Man, these shows are horrible. They do nothing fun. Everybody just stands around. I wish that they would try somthing different where the people actually had to work.

This episode was bad!

It's the old let's make a commercial epsiode. Have the project manager run the commercial as director and everyone else just stay out of the way.

When they came up with the idea of having the cast away, I thought it was at least interesting. I felt the only way it would work is if you had a shot of the guy in a tiny boat or floating on some raft in the water waiving for help from the ship. THEN have him being brought into the ship with the seaweed on his head as they did. But I was thinking, you have 3 hours! How are you going to pull this off!

The first shot they had was with the castaway walking in with seaweed on him. It made no sense. No one understood it. Then using the text and no voice over was a bad choice.

Who do you feel should have been fired?

I feel that both the manager guy, and the guy sitting to the right of him in the board room (I can't remember his name) that was constantly defending him

Yup that is him. I still wish that Brent was around.

The one person that I want out of there so bad is that one red hair girl...I think her name is like Ariel or something. I can not stand her

Oh she is something isn't she? Wouldn't you like to know the REAL background to these people? Trump says she is a millionaire who runs a sticker factory?

Does that not seem a little far-fetched?

Brent was great. Total comic relief and made the show so much more entertaining.

Ok I don't know how many of you saw it last night so I don't want to give away too many details.

The teams had to create a jingle for Arby's and one of the teams was a half hour late to a meeting with the executives. That didn't start the show off well. Then it went downhill from there.
