Need I go on? I am sad. I think I am going to have to break up with this long running series and I hate it. But I refuse to spend more money(12 BUCKS!!) and not get a good experience. I just felt I was being railed at about what is an acceptable relationship between people. I get it. I understand it. Hell I even support it. But at what point to do stop the dialogue and get the hell on with the story.

When we did get some "meat of a story" it was good but getting there was rough. And sadly not worth my time at this point. Again it makes me sad.

I want to give one star but considering our past together I will give you two. Who knows maybe after some time apart we can give it another try.

I need ice cream.
