Comedy Gold
24 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though there has yet to be a single bad episode of the series, if you are this far in, and it's certainly one of the best comedy shows that have been made, when season two hit there were just some episodes in it that are pure comedy gold, and this was one of them.

The writing, the plotting, the lines, the delivery, the interactions between characters, just all come together to make this the oddball series that it was, in full comedic glory.

Jimmy's "weird" nephew, perfectly cast and not overdone; Bill's inability to tolerate anybody better than him, Beth's buyable and humorous rise and fall for the nephew, and of course the non speaking table in Dave's office that seems to succumb to the bellowing tones of Bill's voice in a delightfully funny way.
