Goofs

When the doctor vaccinates the little girl he gives her only a single needle poke. In fact small pox vaccine is administered by series 15 to 30 very shallow needle pokes. In the 1950s and 60s a multi-pronged administration device was developed that made giving the vaccine easier. See more »

Great Episode ++Spoiler++ 9 out of 10
2 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

I totally don't see why there isn't' a review on this episode, even ten years later after it came out.

It's only got a 7,7 rating which i can't understand. There is some great Character Development going on. Especially with Al. From scrubbing the floor to getting slapped by Trixie. His three dimensional Character gets a bit more explained, shall we say. And even if he is a tough son of a bitch. You just gotta love The role. One of the best TV characters of all time. One league with Walter White. As always Ian Mcshane kills it with his performance. Kristen Bells appearance ends with this one and you can see why Cy, the owner of the Bella Union opposite Al's place is a real though unsympathetic Piece of S##t. Further there is quite a comic relief in this one. Conversation with the Doctor and A.W. Merrick, the Newspaper dude is brilliant. Timothy Olyphant as Bullock, as always seems a little stiff in his performance. See for yourself. For me it's a definite 9 out of ten.
