What if I wrote you a poem about your friends failing and read it to you aloud on a sunny picnic?
7 October 2007 | by RiffRaffMcKinleySee all my reviews

Another human emotion is discovered for the first time here: jealousy!

Dick grows very jealous of Mary's old friend Jeff (Ed Begley Jr.), who's spending more time with her and (gasp!) hugging her!

Before he knows it, Dick has unwittingly let his emotions run totally out of control, leading to a hilarious bookstore confrontation.

A slight improvement over "Dick, Smoker," "Green-Eyed Dick" just has more of that "3rd Rock" essence that you've hopefully come to expect by this time. It contains plenty of terrific humor, but isn't as good as the first three episodes were. And despite the disturbing title, it's still somewhat fun.

This isn't a thimble. It's Turkish nipple armor.
