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 »


Simon Stiles: I'm livin' in a new house now. You haven't been there. I'm up in the hills, near the Hollywood sign, and from my pool I can see South Central. I saw a murder up close when I was fifteen. Three guys shot a friend of ours 'bout ten times in the chest with 38s. You know it doesn't look like it does in the movies. Ask a homicide cop. It ain't poetry in motion, it's... everything inside comes outta every part of you. Anyway, we spent the next day planning how we were gonna kill these guys who did it...

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.
