Louie and the cockroach
5 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Louie's fight against the friendly neighborhood cockroach was the funniest aspect of this fairly average episode, which also has a plot of Bobby becoming an agent for Tony, after the latter wishes to try his hand at acting. I'm a big fan of the comedy and drama of this fine show, and I have to say I was a bit disappointed with this ending of this one, as it seemed slightly rushed. Bobby basically gets tired of being turned down for acting gigs, because he doesn't have the "right look", and even though he's handsome, he believes directors are looking for someone with Tony's rugged looks, and dull personality. For me, the highlight was Bobby's speech to Tony about the struggles and pain that real actors go through, only to be turned away again and again. As I said above, the battle between Louie and the cockroach was the funniest part here, and I'll let your imagination run wild until you get to see this episode for yourself. Other than the characters mentioned, the others just had bit parts and lines.
