The main story ended much like it began.
31 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Christine Taylor guest-stars in this episode as Caitlin's sister, Catherine. Before Mike has been introduced, he has asks Christine out on a date only later to find that she is kin to Caitlin. But the one person bothered by the date happens to be Caitlin since we all know that she is falling for Mike. During the date she shows up at Mike's door causing nothing but chaos.

Also Stuart finds out that Nikki, Janelle and James are taking an art class that features nudes. The class is filled so Stuart is unable to come along with the group. But he finds a way where he will be in the group and also be the center of attention.

There is also a nice little story between Carter and Paul concerning paychecks that also had some nice moments. And sad to say, that those moments were perhaps the best part of the show. Mike's date story went no where as it mainly ended much like it began leaving the viewers unfulfilled. The mayor has some nice lines as when he is telling Caitlin about a woman in his past and also telling Mike about his date.- but they felt few and far between. The show felt lacking in many ways.
