best episode of the season
9 February 2009 | by johnlv12See all my reviews

Although DH is consistently the best written show on TV, this episode was exceptional. This episode deserves an Emmy. It is hard to believe that DH has never won an Emmy for writing. I don't understand why it is in the comedy category, although it is hilarious and I laughed out loud at this episode many times. It does not feel like a comedy to me. The only nomination for writing was the pilot, which was competing against "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "Arrested Development". I like these shows, but are they comparable to DH? Hey Emmy people- find or create an appropriate writing category for the best written show on TV and then give them an Emmy.
