Bernard, part deux
16 December 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

On the eve of a summit with China, Jed accidentally accepts an independent Taiwanese flag, when M.S. has him half-blinded. Charlie must get the flag back from the gifts unit...now tended by Bernard Thatch (Paxton Whitehead - BACK TO SCHOOL)! He's as droll as ever, though the writing isn't as snappy as his last go round. Hoynes' pre-campaign book tour is in full swing, and he asks Josh to be his Leo. Russell invites himself to a presidential photo op. The underestimated Ed O'Neill (MARRIED WITH CHILDREN, DUTCH) debuts as candidate Governor Eric Baker. In one of the most magical musical moments in the show's history, James Taylor plays Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come" at a White House banquet.
