Advertisements At least they got rid of the worst character on the show, Mr. Badminton himself. Ernie Hudson was a pleasant surprise. Somehow they've made Jack a secondary character on his own show. C'mon Esther, you know you didn't kill Mr. Badminton. People don't die. And of course, he's going to regain consciousness again when your back is turned. Don't you have cable? You should have kept kicking him in the nuts for about ten minutes once he passed out. As a lot of us have suspected, this show has about five episodes worth of story spread over ten episodes.
