Premise Is Better, But Still Funny Episode
14 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The premise of this story sounded really, really funny: "Rev. Jim" having a racehorse in his apartment. However, it wasn't anything that hilarious although Christopher Lloyd's "Jim" always has some outrageously-funny lines. We expect that from him, and he usually delivers.

Meanwhile, and this might be the most memorable part of the episode - we see Jim's apartment. You can imagine. All I'll say is that on one side of the "living room," there are five straight different color-painted doors. Which one has what behind it?

Overall, not super but an entertaining episode. It even ended on a dramatic note, something unexpected.....but I liked that. In fact, I thought the ending was different and quite memorable as Jim as some very profound things to say. Even Louie's impressed.
