A tad creepy
13 July 2007 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Two comments.....

First of all, "Stretch" looks a lot like Tommy, only grown up. I came to this site to see if he is Philip McKeon's older brother (I guess he's not). If Alice had gotten involved with him, it would have been like making out with Tommy.

Secondly, doesn't it seem kind of weird that little 12-yr-old Tommy would have an 18-yr-old senior spend the night?

Oh, and this might be Henry's first appearance on the show. He's in the background making quips and setting up a new phone at Mel's.

Other than that, a fluffy, less than memorable episode. Not that "Alice" was the most realistic show, but this one seems to be pushing credibility by having this boy stalking Alice around. Perhaps it was true that Linda Lavin was a tad ego-centric.
