Funniest and the Best Episode!
17 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Michael's disliking of Ann finally reaches its climax. But thats not the only character development here. We also see Oscar fighting for Lucille(sort of) while George flees, Tobias and Lindsay finally going back to living in the same house and George Micheal's "love" for Egg.

The biggest laugh in the episode comes from Gob's racist puppet and GOB being the only person to find it funny. The Veals are also well made cameos and George's wow is one of the highlights of the episode. I would say Maeby was under-utilized but she usually is. Ann's comment about "doing it" with George Micheal looking desperate is just classic AD with a throwback to one of the first episodes.

So whats not to love about this episode?
