The Ballad of Kenneth Parcell (#6.4)
17 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Jenna is self absorbed as always and mean to Liz, so Liz tries to find a new best friend. But she seems to need Jenna after all. Jack replaces the pages with computers but this causes him a problem because now if there is a mistake he is the one responsible. And Tracy gets no presents since he already has it all so he feels he has no reason to live anymore.

Liz looking for a friend was a fun story. Especially her joining a very "sex and the city" group of gals. It was also amusing to see her with someone who is just like her. And Jenna with leeches on hr face was way too funny.

The page story was good as well. I really like Hank Hooper's character. So jolly and yet so mean!
