Best Ever - No Doubt
15 September 2009 | by (Tucson) – See all my reviews

The shock value of seeing this episode sticks with me to this day. There is no question that this is the best final episode of any comedic TV series to date. All others, no matter how excellent, just have not been able to live up the simple, disarming, and utterly convincing ending as he wakes up. The increasingly bizarre behavior of the cast over the years as the series matured, and especially the last couple of episodes, really sealed the deal.

Hearing Suzanne Pleshette's voice and seeing her and Bob in the bed was just way too hysterical. I laughed until I cried. I was watching it with my family, and everyone just went to pieces.

Well Played Sir!
