  • It was a decent episode.

    Jimmy is embarrassed of his dad and the skit he was prepared for the Father's Day Follies. He doesn't want to hurt his dad's feelings, so he takes matters into his own hands. He invents a gadget that will turn his dad cool. Jimmy's plan seems to be going well at first, but as usual, everything goes wrong. Hugh is too cool to spend time with Jimmy and is only worried about fame, fortune, and being cool. Jimmy misses his old dad, and since Hugh broke the only invention Jimmy had that would turn his dad back to normal, Jimmy decides to act like he's falling to his death to try to bring Hugh to his senses. But of course, something goes wrong. As Jimmy's dangling feet above the ground Hugh struggles with his cool side for control over Hugh's body, but eventually takes control and saves Jimmy. Then Jimmy realizes he should have excepted Hugh and loved him for who he is. The episode ends with Hugh and Jimmy doing the Duck Dance at the Father's Day Follies and they receive a standing ovation. Hugh's cool side was a little annoying, but for the most part I enjoyed Make Room for Daddy-O.
