This episode is good, but not great.
There are quite a few funny moments in relation to Alan and Eric at the store. By the way, if you recognize Ezekiel, he is played by Mickey Jones who also played Pete in ABC's hit sitcom Home Improvement.
The other plotline involving Shawn, Chet, and Verna is more serious. Rider Strong gives an especially good performance in this episode.
Shareen Mitchell appears as Virna for the second of only three times where we ever see that character.
This episode also marks the first of three appearances of Baywatch's Jen Campbell as mountain girl Lonnie.
