Storyline

Paul's semen has been diagnosed 'bad swimmers', so Claudia's child-wish must be met by a donor. In the heat of a yes-no-game, Mike unwittingly accepts the job. Unamused Nikki must mediate but finds out to late Paul is too stingy for a fertility clinic, so it's "all natural". James has got a shot a contributing an article to a major magazine, but can't find a quiet place to concentrate on his writing. The bored mayor's office proves a terrible choice. Doug, the city hall tour guide, systematically ignores the mayor, but makes a fuzz about Stacey. When her rude disdain gets too insulting, he switches his courtesy to far more appreciative Janelle, which renders competitive Stacey jealous, yet Doug turns away to a most surprising, unwilling third party.

Paul and Claudia ask Mike to donate his sperm.
13 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Paul is having a hard time getting Claudia pregnant due to his slow sperm. With Claudia wanting a baby, Paul asks Mike if he would donate his sperm for them to conceive a child. After some thought, Mike agrees but Paul did not tell him how cheap he was. There is a misunderstanding when Mike arrives to talk with Claudia.

That was about the only story worthy of watching. There were two other things going on - one where James is writing an article for a magazine and the other being that a City Hall tour guide having a crush on Stacey-- not much to either story. The only highlight is that it appears that Mike and Nikki's relationship may be out in the open.

Even though the side stories were not that exciting, the main story of Mike donating his sperm turned out interesting. The way the writers used the character of Paul as one of the cheapest men around, is brilliant. This was just an average show made better by the acting.
