The Budget Ran Low

11 Apr

And lo, they spent two minutes on a still image,
disguising the shortage of cells with trippy imagery
during a fever dream sequence.

And the story came to a stop as characters dicked around—
terrible episodic plots created to kill time
while they scrambled to finish more episodes.

And they included a moment of important dialog at the episode’s end,
so that all who skipped recognizing it as filler
missed important information.

And footage from an old episode was used in recaps,
cutting the last threads of entertainment and
disappointing everyone.

(Inspired by some terrible episodes of Nadia in the late 20 range.)
