A Plus Episode
5 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I admit it. I am a TV Junkie , amongst my many interests.I do get out of the house sometimes too though lol. As far as TV; I like most kinds ... Nature,science,drama, documentaries, sitcoms, you name it. Whats my point? Well here is my point. I was shocked in a great way at how wonderful this episode was. Truly genius. This show has great acting but everything culminated in this particular work of art. The plot speaks for itself. Had a feeling it would be good. The Dennis system for manipulating women was a laughfest. Just very creative and Danny Devito with his one liner moments was truly awesome. The flow of the actors in each situation and setting, really perpetuated this episode. Of course ,being an FX sitcom, that extra mile of realism was there ,because there was no need for the FCC. This show does not just use foul language for the shock value . Basically, it has its moments , well thought and just sprinkled lightly like salt in a margarita. Truly a great episode that had me laughing as much as some of the more prominent episodes of more well known staples of TV history. What can I say; In summation, one of the top 5 episodes I have ever seen in my life.
