Episode Summary

After nearly driving off the freeway, and losing out on two sports trivia contests because he couldn't read the phone number on the television screen, Al finally breaks down and buys glasses. However, he quickly discovers that 20/20 vision isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Al gets glasses.

    PLOT: After a mishap in Al's car with Bud, Kelly, and Buck, the dog, inside, with Al driving, they all decide that Al needs glasses. So, they go get him glasses after convincing him that he needs them.

    This was a great episode. It had a great plot, to start with. It also had some funny stuff in it, like Bud and Kelly giving Al a banana instead of his remote control, and Al doesn't know the difference because of his bad sight, Al confusing a picture of Delta Burke with Raymond Burr, both before and after he gets glasses, and Kelly, Bud, and Al all dancing around in the glasses store while trying to find Al some glasses. It was great to see some character development in Al in this episode, too. The episode plot also developed excellently throughout the episode, as well. Overall, great plot, comedy, plot development, and character development.
