Review On Scraps

Writer, Registered Critic

Now if this review sounds harsh to you, good!

I want it to sound harsh, because I am tired to my bones of that unholy cabal of pretentious East Coast theaters and dim West Coast TV writers and producers foisting on L.A. audiences drivel such as this.

Stevie Walker-Webb is accredited with directing. I’m curious as to how he did it with a straight face.
