  • Ray and Fraser have to find a body.

    7.6
    The Francesca/Fraser subplot in this one was interesting. I especially liked the bit about Fraser "being a genius and having no idea what's right under his nose".



    I think that Francesca running to the funeral home in the wedding dress was a bit overboard. Which gets us to the whole "Fraser plays dead" thing. I still can't work out how and why it worked. I mean, Ray had some trouble getting Fraser back - why would you agree to such a procedure, if you're not sure it works? I'll chalk it up to being one of the more ridiculous notions we have to deal with in television.



    All in all, this episode only rated average, because there was no highlight that would make this episode stand out, except for Paul Gross playing the German fiance. And I would like to point out that his German lines were partly wrong.moreless
