Now the Show is Warming Up-Hot in Cleveland (1.3) ***1/2
1 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was by far the funniest of the 3 segments so far of "Hot in Cleveland."

As age conscious dames, our 3 ladies decide to have the same day declared as their birthdays.

What's even funnier is that the ladies make arrangements to get each other blind dates and Elka is included!

Elka really hits the jackpot when her "beau" immediately proposes marriage and discusses best medication-Allopurinol for the gout.

The other girls seem to hid it off with the exception of Melanie who lands a recent widower, still grieving for his wife,but comparing Mel to her.

It really becomes funny when the girls recognize one of the male dates as a serial killer and stall for the police to come and apprehend him. Had the guy terrorized the women, this would have been even funnier.

The show is showing some improvement. Keep it up.
