Maybe it's supposed to as part of the draw but it grinds my gears and I don't think I can handle another season of it. I could go into detail about the many jawdrop moments that get pushed to the side as if officer Barbrady himself were directing the show but I won't. I'll just say shows like GoT that are based in a mystical world where anything can happen are the ones that get a free pass on the suspension of belief card, but modern day dramas using real world scenarios have to abide by the real world rules. It's probably the same reason I can't watch crime dramas like CSI because I know the real world isn't just a DNA swab away from Ah-Ha! moments where the mystery is solved without so much as a mis-step or two to build drama. It's like a

Ball pits are just toilets filled with brightly colored balls instead of water.
