One of the best episodes of Season Five
16 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

"Married...with Children" was known for a lot of things during its long run on the used-to-be-amazing Fox Network. Among them were crude sexual humor, snappy dialog, and beautiful women. This episode, the second in Season Five, contains plenty of all three. While it may seem tame today, some of moments in this episode (specifically Al's dream sequences) were considered much more racy for 1990. These moments are also among some of the funniest the fifth season had. The dialog is consistently hilarious with Al getting all the best lines. Episodes like this make it obvious how much Ed O'Neill enjoyed playing the character of Al Bundy. Perhaps the most memorable aspect of this episode is the appearance of Pamela Anderson back when she still was in her prime. Her scenes are quite funny and she does a great job in them. The episode is not perfect. A lot of the Kelly jokes don't work and I found the ending to be really predictable. Still, this episode is a laugh riot even after repeated viewings therefore it deserves recognition. 8/10
