From R. Lackie of The Signal:
- Almost Heroes, â€œTerry and Peter vs. A Living Wageâ€ (1.04)
Nothing in â€œA Living Wageâ€ was necessarily bad, but it didnâ€™t quite reach the heights of last weekâ€™s â€œGirlsâ€, nor did it reach my hopes for when I heard the premise. Terry encountering all of the little things Peter knows about the store and comic book culture could have been a strong, joke-filled and character-based plot, and it would have been hilarious to see Peter slowly crumbling over the sheer number of small things he didnâ€™t even know Peter was responsible for. Thatâ€™s what the plot seemed to be going for, but ultimately it all came down to some creepy kids and an annoying delivery man, neither of which were particularly funny. There was so much unused potential, and it could have done some work in showing why Peter, annoying as he is, is crucial to the storeâ€™s success for more reasons than heâ€™s irreparably messed up the storeâ€™s sorting bins.
