Judy Cohen in an outstanding moment.
26 November 2011 | by gabriel_majereSee all my reviews

This was an amazing episode. Judy Cohen did an outstanding job. It was funny and heart touching at the same time. Judy Cohen plays herself as a young hopeful but lacks confidence in herself do to being overweight. But JJ sees through that and has the vision to see just how high she can soar. And in the end helps give her the confidence in herself. I don't know if I could say it's the best episode of all times, but it's close. She did a truly beautiful job in this episode. I just think it's sad that she never became as famous as she was capable of. Between her voice and acting skills she could have, and should have, become world famous.
