WMG / Takin' Over the Asylum

Go To

The Chief Administrator, Dr. Winters, is a well-meaning Pointy-Haired Boss who's kept out of the loop concerning her subordinate's unethical machinations and plot to shut down the Radio Station.
  • Dr. Winters is briefly mentioned, in-passing, to Eddie by both his previous Hospital DJ Boss and Evelyn and sounds like a Reasonable Authority Figure who actually wanted to help the patients (Re-Opening the Radio Station having an annual 'Opening Day' was her idea and she even wanted to introduce Group Therapy). However; Despite having the potential of being a Big Good, she doesn't swoop in and try to save the day and remains The Ghost. It's likely that she's a sympathetic Pointy-Haired Boss those under her lie and never bring up the Patient's fundraising, letting her simply assume that there's no more funding so the Station must be shut down.

How well does it match the trope?
