    The season continues strongly, as we delve more into Alan and Denny's character, whilst developing the relationship between Alan and Tara. If theres one thing this show lacked during its 5 Seasons, it was the continuation of certain storylines.

    I thought the case with the mayor was brilliantly written, and I love the dialogue between Alan and the mayors wife, where he describes his fantasy about her. It was so subtley acted and written, and done so beautifully- I thought it was the key part of the episode.

    Denny's story was also very interesting, and it was a clever connection between him and Sally's toaster case, although it did seem to drag a little bit. Nevertheless, his scenes with Paul were good (as usual), and the toaster client was also very amusing.

    Lori's storyline was quite sad, but also well written, with a nice emotional trick- the show works brilliantly well when the storylines are equally as good as each other.

    Overall, a near perfect episode keeping the strong start to the first Season going. Brilliant stuff.
