One of the silliest episodes to date
3 July 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

One of the silliest episodes to date, but also very fun to watch. The episode could have just as much been a B-rated film hit.

It is almost like a nerd's wet dream. It is about a guy with an abusive wife. He works as a comic book designer and everything that he draws comes to life. That is how he meets this hot cop lady that falls in love with him after he draws them having a dinner date together.

His wife finds out but is destroyed by a monster-version of herself. The episode is very much like a comic book. Very silly, but also pretty fun and cute. Definitely another good Season 2 episode.

The most charming bit was the part with the little boys. Reminded me of an 80's family comedy.
