This Is Just Plain B-a-a-a-a-a-d
15 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

What was going through the writers' heads on this one? Who knows? This has to be, by far, the looniest episode in the three-year history of this fine television show. Well, every once in a while - not too often, thankfully - the writers went for a comedy maybe just for something different. Whatever....this one is almost too corny for description.

A married couple, a wimpy man and his mentally-deranged wife, hire Josh to find their lost sheep, "Baa-Baa," whom the woman is extremely attached to and has been wearing black as a sign of mourning ever since the sheep disappeared a week ago. That should tell you something.

Josh wants no part of this goofy assignment, but somehow gets roped into it. The jokes fall flat and I was almost embarrassed for McQueen having to be a part of this lame effort at comedy.
