Totally Excellent!
1 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

This was one of the best shows in the latter seasons. I cant believe how superb the writing for this show was. It was brilliant from beginning to end.

Debbie Reynolds was the best I've ever seen in all her acting. This is one episode NOT to miss.

Just when you think there cant possibly be anything else left to portray, the writers dig up another hunk of meat to really chew.

This episodes title is perfect.

Comedy rises through the seriousness of this show. It is a laugh a minute, then a thought provoking scene, followed by more laughs. It is comic genius.
