Deliciously painful humour
17 June 2007 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

"The Terrorist Attack" is an episode I've now seen a number of times and it definitely stands up to repeat viewings. When Wanda informs Larry and Cheryl about the 90% probability of a terrorist attack on LA, she sets in motion a series of comic scenarios.

As always, the cast are on top form and the episode plays out in a believably painful fashion.

Linda Bates plays the edgy wife of Paul Reiser.

Music fans may be interested to note that Alanis Morissette makes an appearance as herself.

9 out of 10. Painful but in a good way.
