  • The brothers lose their fifth bartender in a month because of their constant bickering. Mom decides she'll bar-tend after work. The only problem is she takes over and turns the smoking hot bar into a destination place for older folks.moreless

    A slight improvement over the prior weeks two episodes. Both storylines actual had some funny points and the show is better when the brothers aren't constantly working against each other.

    CCH Pounder is her usual take over type Mom. The place is called Trainer's and she says she's a Trainer so she's got as much say as the boys even though the bar/restaurant is owned by the boys. Of course her real plan is to get her two sons to work together and stop arguing. So she gets rid of all the younger women and changes the steakhouse into a family dining joint. She even hires the lunch lady from her school to be the new chef.

    The other story is about Coach and his Model Railroading hobby. There is Tresslemania going on in town and one of his firneds, Charlie, is coming into to town to go with him. Of course Charlie ends up be a nice looking younger women that Mom has to keep and eye on.

    The boys get their shot to get their restaurant back and Charlie ends up being a nice girl that likes trains so alls well that ends well.

    Slightly better and a little more humor than in the first two episodes. Thanks for reading...moreless
