Love Among the Ruins (#1.23)
25 November 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode is a bit more lighthearted one and brings a lot of laughs instead of worries. Those are usually done by the smaller parts that still are very memorable. Such as Jerry doing Shakespeare. He sure got me laughing a lot. Another hilarious part of this episode was the Russian can driver and his pre internet dating sites, dating book. They did a pretty good moment there with Susan's ex being part of the book and the cabbie suggesting one to carter who wants somebody who is pro death penalty. Ilia Volok was good for this role. I recognized him, was sure it was from some big role but turns out it was from his appearance on Friends.

Another element of the show was the decision making. There is Carter trying to choose the right way for him and the monastery sister not wanting to make her choice. Also wonder what will happen with Chloe now. Her story is probably not the only one that was fun on this episode.
