You'd have to think the uncertainty with no air date during filming had to weigh heavily on all aspects of the show. It definitely hasn't been as confident as the second season. That said, I think it was getting back into a groove last night. The Subway conspiracy (is this weird, obvious, but not positive product placement like the KFC shuttle thing?) and the epic fort war should hopefully result in a fun two-parter like the paintball episodes last year. The C storyline with Jeff and Annie was pretty weak, though, and will it return in the second part since it is seemingly resolved? I'm trying to think back to an episode that split the group into three storylines effectively.
