Jury Story
28 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the finest if not the best episode of the first season. It has everything. Cleaver plot , funny lines and good acting.

Plot is a story of Felix and Oscar meeting for the first time on a jury. It is a hilarious spoof of "12 Angry Men".

The big thing about the story is that it is perfect for Felix to act the wise-guy. Again maybe the full potential of it isn't used (wich isn't rare for the first season) but it is very much passable , enjoyable and laughable.

This is one of those episodes you can re-watch any time of the day and still laugh to high heavens. It has some of the greatest jokes in the show .

Overall : an excellent way to spend 20 min.
