Goofs

Tom tells his parents about the night Abbot and Costello wrote the famous comedy sketch "Who's on First?" If he was really such a fan, he would have known that although Abbott and Costello made the sketch famous, they did not write it. It was a version of an old vaudeville number that had been around for years. See more »

Quotes

Matt Albie: It wasn't that bad.
Simon Stiles: DON'T patronize me!

This episode is a huge disappointment
23 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jordan seemed totally out of character. Weak, insecure, dumb. Nothing like what she's been in previous shows. Tom's back story could have been interesting -- how his comedic sense emerged from a life in Ohio under a strait-laced father. Instead, he delivers a history lesson. And of all the cast members to pair up with Eli Wallach, wouldn't Tom, with his appreciation for comedy and comedians, have been a natural? At least he might have explained the Clifford Odets reference that probably sailed over the head of any viewer under 70. Last criticism: At the outset it seemed like the episode was going to set up the three bimbos as a main story line. That fell flat right away, so the trio disappeared. Good riddance. Only Simon's back story, his confrontation with Matt and their interplay at the Improv rang true; that's the only story line that sounded like something Sorkin wrote. The first five episodes hooked me and I will keep watching the show, but this week's show not only wasted my time, it insulted my intelligence.
