A Diet to Die For!
22 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thanks her new neighbors and friends, Peggy gets inspired to take a diet program called Thinnergy. The problem is that all she wants is attention from her husband and being on the diet alone isn't going to work out. Once Al is on the diet, he can persuade to get her off. This is the first episode after the pilot. It's not as funny as others but Al is a meat and potatoes man and the idea of fruits and vegetables isn't up for his taste buds. If it wasn't for his new neighbor and sudden friend, Steve Rhoades, he encourages him to go on the diet with his wife so they can get off together. All Peggy wants is a little attention and love from her husband. Still, it's not a bad episode overall.
