  • What to bring to the Divorce Ceremony?

    8.5
    The two wildest adversaries in this wilderness were Maggie and Joel. The writers use the setting to provide some good comedic counterpoint between Joel's concrete-to-conifer culture shock and Maggie's smug frontier know-how. Joel gets the last laugh, however, when he solves the plane's mechanical problem by comparing it to an arterial stenosis. The experience gives the two characters some time getting to know each other a little better, and hints at a developing subtext of romance.



    The thread of Chris agreeing to perform the divorce ceremony for Shelley and Wayne is offbeat and hilarious.
