The Problem Solvers (#4.5)
3 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Jack wants to start the Deal breaker talk show with Liz as a host but Jenna recommends her to look around for other offers. Jenna and Tracy are the Problem Solvers now and one of the problems they are dealing with is the new cast member Danny who doesn't want to let Kenneth do things for him.

The Deal breaker story was pretty funny. I especially loved the ending, it was less fun but more sweet. I love Jack and Liz's friendship and the moments it is expressed on the show. And they make it sweet without being cheesy.

The new cast member was pretty funny as well, there may be some potential in the future. The scene where Kenneth angers him was hilarious. So was seeing Jenna and Tracy's shirts.
