Pamela Anderson Leaves A BIG impression In One Of The Best Episodes
23 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Following on from the great season five opener being a 10/10 episode, we get another 10/10 episode.

Plot In A Paragraph: Al and Kelly fake being sick to avoid going to visit Peg's mother. The pull of the scheme and Peggy goes with Bud. All goes well until Kelly really becomes sick.

Due to the plot we only see Peggy and Bud at the beginning of the episode, the rest of it is carried solely by Al (Ed O'Neil) and Kelly (Christina Applegate)

This is the first episode where Al talks about when he "scored four touchdowns in a single game" and also this is the first episode where Al sings along to his favorite TV show "Psycho Dad".

O'Neil is again great as Al, as is the gorgeous Applegate as Kelly. But the biggest impression left from this episode is a buxom Pamela Anderson as Yvette who Al constantly finds himself in bed with. It must have been a hard day at the office for Ed O'Neil that day. Becky Mullen, who is also easy on the eye shares an interesting scene or two with Al too.
