Katey Sagal shines.
6 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a wonderful episode. Katey Sagal shows that she is a great actress. She really stars and her transformation from a mean, vicious, nasty shrew to a generous, supportive and modest wife was impressive, even astounding. It's just too bad that the writers chose not to further develop the new Peg which was a much more attractive, enjoyable and amusing character than the grumpy, scowling, old Peg. The gag is that Al somehow brainwashed Peg into believing that she is a generous, giving person who puts family first. The question is: who is the real Peg? The disgusting, self-centered, dumbo or the giving, caring, and far more attractive paragon of virtue?

What would have been so terrible if the writers had kept the new Peg? Better yet, what about if there was a scene where Peg is in one of her more irritable and nasty moods, giving Al a really hard time, mocking him mercilessly, belittling his manhood, deriding him for being a shoe salesman, and then, while in the middle of her latest tirade, she suddenly stops, lapses into a stupor, snaps out of it and undergoes a complete change of personality that no one else notices at first but which soon becomes apparent. Might have made for an interesting episode, or perhaps a spin off.
