    A step up from last week's episode, but this is still not doing Rules of Engagement any favors in its quest for renewal for a sixth season with these kinds of shows. Resorting to Bianca Kajlich in lingerie to get people buzzing about the show? I mean, not that I'm complaining. I guess the idea of "make-up" sex was kind of funny, but this episode was just not well-written and that whole storyline with Audrey trying to impress Jeff's boss was just weird. Not to mention they could have picked someone a little bit funnier to play the role of his boss.moreless

    The worst Rules of Engagement yet to be honest. The premiere was pretty weak, but this episode was just devoid of laughter. Not once, I laughed, and the plots here were just utterly ridiculous. Jeff & Audrey working together? Audrey stealing his boss' picture? That was entertaining, but the problem was that it simply was not funny.



    The best plot definitely was between Adam & Jennifer. Even though this plot is definitely over used with other sitcoms, the whole idea of "getting comfortable," it was still pretty entertaining. All the scenes in the diner were almost unbearable with Jeff's very unfunny jokes, and Adam's bad reaction times. The hippies plot was just as worse. I thought we were going to have a great follow up to David Spade's character losing all his money, but instead he just tried to have sex with a hippie while staying in Tim's apartment. Overall, definitely the worst yet.moreless
