  • My second episode of this series. I will come back for another.

    Against my better judgement I'm slowly becoming interested in this show. It intrigued me at first and I'm very fond of the cast. So it earned a look. It earned a second look and I'll be coming back for a third.

    The show was humorous at a good rate. Not hilarious as Boston Legal, another favorite of mine, but it is funny. It has a different kind of wit that I admire.

    I will admit to it's reliance on sex and sexuality, but it is an adult show and airs at an appropriate time for it's subject matter. It is not overly vulgar or untoward.

    I respect this episode and particularly Michael Vartan's character of James for his higher morals as he embarks on the single life once more. These morals are not neccessarily witnessed in the other three lead characters.

    This show has a good level of drama and the subplots continue to build at an adequate pace. I enjoyed this episode and it's definitely done it's job of keeping me interest in the show.moreless

    • Karl: Look, I know it sounds crazy but it's taken my mistress to help me remember how great my wife is. And now that I have, I won't let anything spoil it.

    • Sara: (about the red Ferrari) Mid life crisis or divorce?
      James: Oh, that obvious huh? (Sara nods) Yeah, well… guilty as charged, recently separated.
      Sara: Well, I've been there, first stage is always hardest.
      James: There are stages?
      Sara: First stage, wondering if you gonna survive. Second stage, wondering if you're going to spend the rest of your life alone and third stage, wondering why you didn't get a divorce sooner.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Music: Almost Lover by A Fine Frenzy. (This song played when Duncan went to see Lizbeth and ask her for a date near the end of the episode.)


    • James: The woman had more protection than Private Ryan.
      This is in reference to the 1998 Steven Spielberg film Saving Private Ryan. In the film Private Ryan was discovered in an embattled German town during World War II. The number of troops around him and the munitions available had dwindled. In essence, Private Ryan was not very protected, unlike the woman with multiple condoms to whom James referred
