Episode Summary

On their way to Ritchie's desert camping trip, Christine, Richard, Matthew, and Barb stay at a seedy motel and get on each others' nerves.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • That's What Friends Are for.

    Christine and her friends ended up at a motel near where her son is camping and plenty of problems among the four. that all don't like each other. Two of them ran out of gas while the other two are back to the motel room trying to annoy each other and trying to read the bible. My favorite moment of the episode is by shock none of them. My favorite moment is anything scene with jane Lynch in it. I happen to love Jane Lynch and in every scene she in, I'm in heaven. so forget christine and the gang. I like Jane Lynch and it gets an 7.moreless
  • Christine Richard Matthew and Barb tag along behind Richie's camping trip Christine tries to prove to Richard that they are friends Barb and Matthew are trapped in a car together and Richard deals with the ending of a relationshipmoreless

    This episode showed me how good this show is, the writing has really improved since last season. And personally I am glad. Julia Louis-Dreyfus deserved to get another show-one that finally put an end to that Seinfeld curse. And the rest of the cast is simply in a word....hilarious I specifically enjoyed Christine's rendition of "The Night the Lights went out in Georgia" it made me laugh for like 5 minutes straight-thank god for Tivo. "The New Adventures of Old Christine" is definately one of this season's up-and-coming sitcoms. I would be completely shocked if this comedic diamond didn't make it to a season 3.

    Mind you, I am not saying that this is the next "Friends" (rather ironic considering the title of the episode I am reviewing), but much better, and more clever and entertaining than any "comedy" NBC is currently airing...excluding Scrubs of course

    Until next time.....
