Centers around one of my least favorite characters
Another fun episode that centers around one of my least favorite characters; Nick.
Nick is one of those people that are just doomed to have a miserable live. He's a tragic character and it isn't his fault. Nick is just stupid and can't think straight. One of the reasons why F&G is so good is because it makes me feel the characters happiness or this time; their anxiety. The scene of Nick performing horribly at a band audition was nailbiting and terrible to experience. We have all been there, The Geek side of the episode was a lot more pleasant this time. Sam reminds me of when I was a little boy, I dreaded the moment I was forced to shower at school. But the writers wrote the fear of being nude in such a hilarious way that the forced-streaking overkilled it.
This episode is a FOUR star one. Another great one.
