Operation Righteous Cowboy Lightning (#5.12)
14 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Jack makes a benefit for a disaster that didn't happen yet. In the meantime the cast wants to be prepared for the disaster and is sucking up to Lutz who claims to have a car. And Tracy has a reality TV going on who film him at work.

A pretty great episode. My absolute favorite in it is Lutz. Love all about him in it. His outfit to look good on Tracy's show, him lying about having a car and going on with the evil plan to have everyone sucking up to him.

The benefit story is awesome as well. Both what it ended up to be for and also the participation of Robert DeNiro.
