A Lot of Lard
28 February 2018 | by Gerardrobertson61See all my reviews

Not a great episode in my opinion,if anything just average. It did have it's odd funny moment like the boys on one side of the dance floor and girls on the other, (been there, done that), but the grease sub plot was pretty lame. It's only the first episode in the 10th Season, so hopefully it will pick up in the remaining 22 episodes.
