Immaturity abounds
14 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are a few reasons why 'The Cane' is so good, but it ultimately comes down to Bill and Dave and a rash of buffoonery. First of all, Bill shows up with a walking stick for no reason, loses it and then immediately blames Dave (jealous!). You can see from here how the episode will probably play out with Bill on the childish offensive, but it culminates in a payoff that brims with playful mischief. It's entirely prop-driven humor but oh, does it work.

Outside of that, it's division all around, with Mr. James' workplace retreat creating a rift between Dave and Lisa over production ideas, and Matthew and Joe undergoing couple-like communication issues. Everyone involved is having fun with this episode and it shows.

9/10
