Wow, how awesome was Peter's rant in front of the Supreme Court? And it was true as well, not that this made any sense (why was Peter randomly called to speak on violence in movies) but it was really entertaining television. This episode was not the best installment of Action yet to air, but it was still a fine, fine example of how to do a single-camera sitcom.
This show is the quintessential example of character-based humor and really was before its time. If it was on now in 2009 with Entourage and Californication, it would not only hold up over time and still be a critical darling, but it would be a ratings hit as well for any cable network. But like Sports Night and Aliens in America, some shows are just too good for TV and Americans' low attention spans.
