  • The last episode in the series is one of the best. It has character and really has the show come full circle. Well Further than full circle, a little to the left as well.

    As a final episode this is perfect as it comes full circle. Most of the episodes this season have been about Bret or Jemaine get the girl and it has bothered me, only recently have they got back on track. This has pushed some of the supporting cast like Mel into the background. She may be annoying but most of her appearances are comedy gold. The subplot is laugh out loud funny.

    When the boys get evicted for paying there rent in New Zealand and not American dollars, Murray suggests putting on play of their life. Trouble is they don't have anywhere to live either. Could Mel help with that?

    Murray's Ego is High this episode with him creating the play and even complimenting the actor playing him in the production. However I really liked Mel's involvement as she shows she truly does love Doug. The situation of Mel treating the boys like children even going through the Doug separation speech with them, 'its not you it's us, you'll learn when you up' was hilarious. So was her excitement at Doug appearing on stage playing harp and the subsequent snog in the hallway.

    The songs this episode were kind weak. However the use of home furniture (and it's reprise at the end of the ep) as musical instruments was great. The police sirens as Jemaine opens the window.

    With the play an obvious flop and the boys deported (thanks Murray for drawing attention to their illegal immigrant status) it looks like it is the end of the series. Back to Shepherding for the boys then.
