Too good too be true
18 February 2011 | by (Joinville, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is a very good episode. Well, first off a cop comes to Christine's house and she confuses him with a stripper. He tells her that there is a thief in the neighborhood and she's got no alarm. She improvises an alarm made of cans which deliver a few good jokes. The shining joke, the bold and the beautiful joke, the trans fat cheese joke, the year of birth joke, the bad influence joke among others make this episode a very good one. And Julia Louis-Dreyfus shows how terrific actress she is. Also in the last scene we have a surprise involving birth date which is really unexpected. A very recommended episode to comedy lovers.
