Kitty and GOB Are The MVP's
4 December 2018 | by gab-14712See all my reviews

As George Sr. wisely quotes, "Never fire crazy!" The Bluth family and friends are no strangers to the term "crazy", but craziness is certainly abound in this episode, "Missing Kitty." Remember Kitty Sanchez (played by the awesome Judy Greer), the Bluth's oversexed office assistant? She is back and comes off as the villain here albeit dim-witted villain. She knows all the secrets of the Bluth's family thanks to her affair with George Sr, and of course Michael had the weird sense to fire her from the company thus making her disappear to become the antagonist here. Honestly, I did not care for this episode much at first, but I have grown to appreciate it based on my reflection here. Tis episode features two of the famed motifs of the series: Kitty flashing her breasts seemingly every second, and the Spring Break video series called, "Girls With Low Self-Esteem." The performances are all great in this episode, but Judy Greer is the episode's MVP.

With Kitty as our guest character, the centerpiece is focused on GOB. If you are a fan of his magic, prepare to be entertained. GOB is obsessed with softcore spring break series, and decides to bring his magic act to the videos. His goal is to make his family yacht disappear. George-Michael is impressed with GOB and hangs around his uncle more often. Michael taking notice, has George-Michael working in the office. Michael decides to fire Kitty multiple times, and she threatens to take the family to court with her evidence. Meanwhile, Tobias continues to research his film role by going to prison with the white supremacist White Power Bill. Finally, Lindsay, Lucille, Maeby, and Annyong are trying to figure out what is going on financially regarding Nana, or Lucille's deceased mother.

Overall, this is a solid if a little underrated episode. There are laughs to be had especially within the Kitty and GOB scenes. The storyline with Nana left me cold, but we see what a devilish woman Lucille can be....and of course she involves poor Annyong. But I recommend this episode!

My Grade: A-
