Fitting Episode :-)
20 August 2007 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

Lol catz! This episode cracked me up. There was a guy who wanted an operation on his eyes so he could look Asian for his girlfriend's parents. That psychiatrist (Dr. Santiago) walked in on Christian banging some random woman. She basically told Christian she thinks he has too MUCH sex. Julia figured out that she was pregnant (that came out of nowhere, but I liked it.) Gina (a major character in later seasons) was introduced. I loved Christian's speech about everyone being little more than a pile of walking ash. Some of the best writing of the series. John Hensley continues to shine as Matt McNamara, even though he appears very little in this episode. And... majorly sad stuff happened (don't want to spoil the episode completely.) It was a fitting episode for the series, not bad, but not amazing.
