We’re back with another episode of Story Time with Forest Whitaker! Now the last episode we looked at was a pretty boring example of this show barely even trying and merely going through the motions, but I hear that a lot of people really like this episode so maybe the show has already figured out what it wants to do and is now heading in the right direction. Are the people right and is this one of the better episodes of the series, or is this just another disappointment from a show that probably has no right to exist in the first place? Let’s find out!!
The episode begins with a whole bunch of SUPER SURGERY where there’s blood splatter, sawn open rib cages, and some bad ass doctor sticking his hand inside some dude’s chest cavity! SWEET! I don’t know what the fuck he’s trying to do (something to do with the aorta), but whatever it is it ends up saving the poor bastard on the table. Oh I’m sorry, did I say table? They aren’t actually in an operating theater; they’re in the fucking emergency room with the guy on a gurney! Television execs being cheap or the hospital has budget cuts? YOU DECIDE!!
