Patient Description:

The last case was a dangerous one; quarantine for the patient was arranged immediately. Good Guy with a Gun festered with numerous signs of writing illness that could escalate if not treated immediately. It's a story, within a game show, that lacked logical flow, and fell flat with its plot. Wayne's personality may have been designed with humor in mind, but it doesn't survive when he starts to lecture about guns. He orchestrates the play as a bland pro-gun commercial. Nadal also laughs out loud more than I think a normal human being would, making his character unbelievable. Why does Betty Jo say "I'm not qualified to make a decision" when asked who she thinks is the honest contestant? The hiccups in logic continue throughout the piece. There are obvious jokes included to poke fun at gun owners. To the legal guardian's credit, I personally don't understand the jokes. I don't know much about the culture and consequently can't appreciate the satire that's bustling within. The bottom line is that the technical flaws would deter both people who are familiar with guns and people who aren't.
