The Family "Election Day" Review - AVClub

AVClub: Sometimes, I wonder if The Family is just toying with us, just to push the viewers to see how much they’ll take, and the ABC censors as well, although that network just had one of its show leads kill a disabled man with a chair, so they’re obviously lenient. They must be, because in a series full of disturbing moments, is the scene with the thumbs the worst ever? And not just that Jane tries to cut off Gabe’s thumbs, but that she fails and leaves him a bloodier mess in even more pain than he was before. And not even just that, but Jane talking about why she had to stop because of “the sound of the bone,” and you know this show is not just messing around anymore.

The story is too old to be commented.
