"Rules Of Engagement" season five thus far has not disappointed.

Plot In A Paragraph: Timmy (Adhir Kalya) struggles to help Russell (David Spade) manage his finances after being cut off by his mother. While desperate to keep up appearances Audrey (Megyn Price) tells a rival from college she is still at the magazine and accepts a mentor from her. Meanwhile Adam (Oliver Hudson) struggles to get Jennifer (Bianca Kajlich) to stop cracking her knuckles.

Patrick Warburton is not given a lot to do here which is a shame. Whilst Megyn Price has never looked better, (she has a lot of cleavage on show too!!) as Audrey, this is my least favourite side to the character. David Spade continues to do what David Spade has always done and brings the laughs as sleazy Russell and Adhir Kalyan has been a breath of fresh air as Russell's put upon assistant Timmy. He has me laughing out loud on several occasions.
