"On the Lot" has been quite the slog this summer, it's true, but this week's episode was the one that I figured would make it all worthwhile. Three not-that-bad directors were going to pull out all the stops to make the best final films they could, Garry Marshall was going to utter more crazy talk, and Adrianna Costa was going to barely wear clothing.

Wrong. Well, the last two were true, but instead of getting three new films, we got what was essentially a recap. The final three — Jason, Will and Adam — were asked to pick their two favorite films from the season. And then we watched them. Again.

After all, my whole experience of watching this show has been a lesson in setting my expectations lower. But "rewarding" the, I dunno, 25 of us who are still watching with a finale filled with films we'd already seen is just offensive. All I can figure is that the show ran out of money.
Enough venting. To read about what actually happened and see my pick to win, read more
