    Not a very good installment this week, I was just annoyed by most of the story lines in this episode. Adam being chatty or Jeff being annoyed by Audrey's constant calls were the only two enjoyable gags of the episode. Audrey trying to mentor someone and trying to pull off pretending to work at her old job was just not entertaining, and I think she needs to get back to her job soon considering she hasn't any good story lines since. Jeff & Audrey's relationship plot was void in this episode, and her calling constantly was hardly used. It was instead using on David Spade. Him losing all his money and trying to pick up girls really is not entertaining. He always reminds me of a really bad version of Barney from How I Met Your Mother. I don't know, this show has impressed me before, but this wasn't the case.

    Overall, a lackluster episode that wouldn't have much effect if you missed it. I probably wish I did miss out on this episode.moreless

    Rules of Engagement is a show that one week it can be very good and the next it can be just mediocre comedy: this was one of those mediocre episodes.

    The Russell being poor storyline needs to end right now. It has gone on for too long, no one is enjoying it, it is not leading to funny moments; I do not know how much more of a failure a story arc can be.

    The Adam and Jeff stuff was nothing to write home about either. Seemed like something pretty much exactly the same as what they usually bicker about every week.moreless
