Back in L.A. from a visit to Portland, Fred launches into a song for his friend Carrie about a city where the 90s still flourish and where young people go to retire. Jump to Portland, where a couple asks the wait staff about a chicken on the menu. Before making their order, the couple decides to check out the farm where the chicken was raised: there they find a seductive cult leader, Aliki, surrounded by his many wives.

stupidest show I have seen in a long time
23 January 2011 | by dwallxxSee all my reviews

I was looking for a new show to watch, so I decided to try this one.

Not worth the time to watch it. It has to be one of the stupidest shows I have seen in a long time. It jumped around to much, and made very little sense. Although the opening song was kind of catchy, not my type of show.

Plus I have been to Portland, I can't put my comment on here about what I thought of the city.

I won't watch any more of it, and will try and find some other show to watch. Hopefully it will be canceled before long, and replaced with a better comedy to watch.
