The One With Stan's Backup...
2 June 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really love this episode. It's so funny. Stan is just so inconsiderate; I don't know why I don't hate him more. It's strange, really. But, as I said, this episode is really great, and it's one of my favorites from this season.

In this episode, Stan is kidnapped in Columbia, right before Valentine's Day. Thankfully, him, and his partner escape unarmed. The kidnapping wasn't the real trouble. The real trouble was when Francine found out that Stan has a backup wife; a dentist; in case she dies. Francine is furious, understandably, so she decides to go, and find a backup of her own. Meanwhile, Steve, and Roger get inspired, and play "Wheels, And The Legman", their own cop duo, and try to solve a mystery.

Roger's disguise: Native American girl.

Best part of this episode: Wheels, and The Legman.

Worst part of this episode: Nothing in particular.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
