Did You Know?

The video game Adam orders online, "Field of Duty IV" is an obvious reference to the popular "Call of Duty" series of first-person shooters. Interestingly, while Adam specifically mentions that the goal of the game is to kill Nazis, the fourth entry in the actual "Call of Duty" series, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (2007) (VG) was the first one not to take place during World War II, and as such to not feature Nazis as enemiesSee more »

Stop dumbing down the Adam character, 9 December 2014
Author: slightlymad22 from United Kingdom

Plot In A Paragraph: Audrey's really annoying friend Liz proves a nightmare for Audrey and Jeff when she moves in the apartment directly above theirs, meanwhile Timmy is shocked when Russell asks to join his acappella group.

Patrick Warburton really knocks it out of the park in this episode, I wasn't a fan of his when I started watching the show, however over the course of the first four seasons he has really won me over. David Spade and Adhir Kalyan continue to delight, but Oliver Hudson's character is just getting dumber and dumber which is disappointing and annoying. He has gone from sweet and naïve to just plain moronic.
