What is the purpose of this show?
Is it about people acting and giving speeches like The Three Stooges?
Last week, this show presented the most ridiculous television in the history television. The Helper Team members Vic Strand and Charlie the Backstabber aka Killer of Nick, on a beer balloon, bringing two propeller needed to fly the plane that Al crashed. Probability of this happening boggles the mind. They find the balloon, it has fuel after 10 years of apocalypse, they fly it, and locate the Morgy Team, with the needed airplane propellers, that they just happen to have at hand. Ok, so maybe the show is going for Z Nation. Completely ridiculous.
Some quick quotes for comedy:
1) Alyc "I just want to help" - This was in the first few minutes of the episode. I just could not believe she said that. True comedy gold.
2) Morgy "We're gonna get everyone on the plane" - The Helper Team Captain/Holy Man Redemption Project.
3) Vic "We did something extraordinary" - yes, a beer balloon on a tv show - simply idiotic.
4) Al "I met someone special" - Soap
5) June "I left John in the cabin" "You'll see her again" - So much Soap.
This show is so convoluted. There was a nuclear meltdown in the area, radiated zombies, and another meltdown is coming. The crashed airplane lost its propellers, but no worries, that was just ordered from Home Depot. The airplane somehow conveniently lost its fuel. But wait, Al knows where there's more fuel, above the rock wall that she went to with her girlfriend Isa where they shared a starry night and passed spit beer. Alyc is out to convince the Radiation Kids to go with them on a plane that they already crashed. Just think about that for a moment. Morgy is out to help Vic and Backstab while they're besieged by radiated zombies. Oh My. Captain Morgy, Helper Team leader is on the no batteries ever required walkie speaking with Alyc, and Grace the Radiation Lady trying to stop or stall the meltdown. And let's not forget our friendly neighborhood Cowboy John and his new buddie Scarface Dwight. If all the convoluted nonsense above is not enough, we have these 2 sentimental fools looking for D's x-wife.
Alyc looking for the Radiation Kids kills a bunch of zombies all tied up with their own intestines. Intestine zombies are dumb. She finds the kids but does not take no for an answer. The kid leader takes her silly weapon and holds her captive until they fix the zombie barricade that Alyc destroyed. Zombies attack, Alyc is finally given her weapon and as she kills a bunch of zombies, one of them is radiated and she gets blood all over her face. She's a goner unless the writers pull a Glen Dumpster fake-out. After all that, finally the kids agree to go to the plane.
Vic and Backstab somehow build a barricade with the beer balloon against the radiated zombies. And Vic opens up to Back, about not believing in The Helper Team, and that it was his decision not to fly the airplane, leading to inexperienced Al to fly and crash it. We are supposed to care here. We are supposed to see the Vic redemption project. Now Vic is all in on Team Helper with Morgy. Grace tells Morgy where he can conveniently find a truck. He also finds a radiation outfit. Captain Morgy to the rescue of Vic and Backstab. He tells them to take the propeller to the truck stop and heads out to convince Grace to leave with them. Morgy in the radiation outfit is comedy gold. He finds Grace and she agrees to come along. Then he speaks with Alyc. And Alyc says she's ok, even though she's got zombie radiation.
If that's not enough we have Cowboy John and Dwight looking for D's x-wife. Finally, Cowboy gives D his x-wife's letter saying to stop looking. D forgives John for lying and now his big mission is to bring Cowboy to June. This is all real interesting stuff. Highly entertaining. Not. Just simply convoluted, impractical, contrived soap nonsense.
And still if that's not enough we have Nurse June and Al Fashionable Haircut/Videographer/Swat Commander/Airplane Mechanic going to get more fuel, via Al climbing the rock wall, and a super soap scene where they lay it all on the table. Al does not tell June that she met the Helicopter People. No. That would be something normal people would do. The Freaking Helicopter People?! No. Al, tells June she met someone, like at a mall, or at work, or in the park one day when she was jogging. And she wants to see her again. Then June comes back with some dialogue about happiness and love will find each other and some such soap nonsense. This here is some of the cheapest and most boring dialogue ever. What is going on?
Vic and Backstab make it to the Truck stop and so does The Radiation Kids. The Little Radiation Kid meets Backstab and they bond over The Little Price book. How sweet. What the hell is this? Morgy and Grace are heading to Truck Stop. Alyc is wondering aimlessly, washing her radiated zombie blood face in a stream. The nuclear plant alarm goes off.
Ok, so it looks like they will all be on the airplane and fly out just in time. And Grace may just so happen to have just enough of a radiation cure to save Alyc's life. Or maybe she'll go down with a last minute explosion where she saves everyone.
This is getting real tough. Very boring episode.
