The One With The CSI Telethon...
15 May 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really, absolutely love this episode. It's so great. I don't know if it's because Roger vows revenge on Stan, or the fact that he becomes the Phantom Of The Telethon, but there's just something about this episode that makes me laugh all the way through.

In this episode, Stan has to come up with a fundraiser for the CSI to get some more funding. Roger suggests hosting a telethon to make the money. Stan decides to do that idea, but doesn't give Roger any credit. Because of this, Roger vows revenge on Stan, and tries to sabotage the telethon by becoming the Phantom Of The Telethon, and eventually releases a terrorist into the crowd.

Roger's disguise: Mary Tyler Moore.

Best part of the episode: Roger.

Worst part of the episode: Nothing in particular.

Overall, I give this episode a 9 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Amazing.
