Poor casting
31 October 2018 | by eric-ludwig78-852-475352See all my reviews

The story itself is interesting but could the producers not find anyone better than David Schwimmer?! He even got an Emmy nomination for that? David Schwimmer is always showing all along the episodes exactly the same face: the one of a sad dog. Simply annoying. John Travolta as well shows all the time the same unexpressive face. Not convincing at all.
