Awful awful awful.
4 of us watched this on Christmas Day and despite all of us being huge NGO fans we never laughed once.
It was more like some kind of lame horror movie rather than a Comedy.
The idea of a psycho robber who is more than willing to kill people including a heavily pregnant woman is not really my idea of comedy.
Then you have the fact that Lee actually had to be talked into trying to help save his PREGNANT WIFE. As if.
Frank saving the day was also a poor cop out seeing as he had to really think about it.
There has only been a few NGO episodes that have been truly awful, this along with Mugging is by far the worst.
I am going to pretend this episode never happened.
Despite the fact that I thought this was one of the strongest 'post-Vine' episodes, I completely see where you're coming from. NGO is the only sitcom I can think of that has such vast differences in quality from one episode to the next. I liked this one, but a previous Christmas episode in a haunted house I thought was terrible.
I'm hoping if they go ahead with Mack's idea for a new spin off series he'll soften the Lucy character (she's not very likeable). I think Lucy should be written to be closer to the real Sally Bretton. I've seen her interviewed and she seems lovely.
