Some of the best parts of the episode happened in smaller, quieter moments.
18 January 2019 | by ppxiSee all my reviews

Ed's transformation from mild-mannered spouse into a deliberate, stand-up guy not willing to be run over by his dominant wife was well worth the wait and brilliantly played by Adam Scott in all his hirsute glory.
