Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • a good Larry Tate episode

    If you are Larry Tate fan, you will probably love this one as much as me. In this episode, it appears that Darren and Samantha are preparing for trip for their vacation. But Darren is an easy, having the suspicion that Larry will instead tried to send him on a business trip and interfere with his vacation. Just then the phone rings or the door bell? It's Larry and the news is bad. It looks like Louise is too ill to be left alone, and Larry drop several hints that he would like the pair to look in on her if at all possible. And then, the fun starts.

    As they wait for Larry to go and pack for their vacation, they stop to reminisce about a time in the past and had to be in two places at once. Although told in a flashback, the story where Darren was both transported to Japan and also stay with Sam while pregnant, it's not that interesting. But it does have some cute work-based witchcraft situations, but the fun part is the helpful Darren who's staying with Samantha pregnant and waiting on her hand and foot, all the while Samantha cannot let Darrin know that he is in Japan.

    The rest of the show is either showing the couple of the couch in present day, about to pack their vacation, or showing Samantha large with child, being waited on by Darren. At the very end, Sim and Darren get another visit from the always hilarious Larry tape, to one last time try to convince them to stay behind to look after Louise or attempt to be tricked into canceling their vacations. Larry Tate fans will think this one is lots of fun.moreless
