  • Andy deals with some bad chicken. It's much funnier than it may sound.

    This episode is beyond great! If every episode was like this one then it would have had a better chance at staying on the air. The episode just gets funnier every time that you watch it. You catch hidden jokes that you may not realize were funny until you watch it again. The other episodes had some bad humor that the writers used because they tried too hard to make you laugh. This episode didn't need any bad jokes. I personally think that some characters in this shows can be annoying, but in this episode they didn't bother me at all. This episode is the reason that I will buy this show once it comes out on DVD. It was, without a doubt, Tony Hale's best performance on this show. Five stars!moreless
