Loved this episode
2 April 2016 | by mamamitzvahSee all my reviews

Sorry that the previous viewer did not care for this episode. I enjoyed it very much. From seeing the starting scenes with the speed dating to the duet between Katharine McPhee & Elyes Gabel to the plot, this though it was. I love the personal interactions such as the one between Sylvester and his father. Jeff Fahey was wonderful as the estranged father & the reaction of Sylvester to him priceless.The discussion of the duet between Walter and Paige was adorable and I hope they do eventually become a couple. This is definitely one of my favourite shows.

I do not watch this to see Macbeth. I watch it to be entertained and I always am. Thank you to the cast & crew for a delicious show.
