    I'll come right out and say this now, this episode has got nothing on last weeks but I still enjoyed it nonetheless. It wasn't really my favorite storyline but it still had its perks. Charlie's humor is the same as always. Especially when he was with his ex wife and he thought he was going to get some but she told him to lock up. Priceless. I liked Reese's line about Crews losing another car. You just know that they are leading up to Reese and Tidwell sleeping together. It has been getting closer and closer every episode. It will be entertaining to see how that plays out. I liked Teds screen time but it really sucks that everyone but those three idiots left his class.moreless

    Mixed feelings about this one. Although our story does move forward a tiny bit, and we have a couple of nice moments, this episode is let down in a massive way by the poorly written and acted crime story.



    So I will try to stay positive and only look at the good bits.



    Story: Reese Sr seems to be on the right side as far as the girl is concerned. And she seems to have a lot of resentment for Crewes.



    New Lead: Crewes picks up a new name to ponder over.



    Crewes and clowns: he likes them drunk apparently. Was nice to see how he is picking up his pieces from the past.



    Lieutenant: continues his master performance of un-PC leader.



    Ted: starts a new life teaching, and despite some setbacks, takes control of his class. More of Ted please!



    After the uncanny plots of the past, this one well and truly blew. Also, not enough Zen was on display. One of the weakest episodes of the series and only saved by it advancing the story one step forward.moreless

    • Charlie: That's what the newspapers said.
      Ted:You don't believe them?
      Charlie: Newspapers said I was guilty!

      Charlie: Ted, you were guilty! Ted: I know, but, it still hurt to see it there like that in print.

    • Tidwell: Come on. So we'll get a fake beer. Hah? And maybe we'll get fake drunk and end up having fake drunk sex. What do you say?
      Dani: That an idea is repulsive.
