  • I'm almost crying this is so funny!

    I taped the episode tonight and I'm watching it now. I'm not even half way through it and I had to get on here and say that I was almost on the verge of tears this one is so funny! Out of the few episodes this show has had thusfar, this episodes is easily one of my favorites, if not my favorite. Christine is neurotic and overbearing and it's just hysterical! I can't wait to see the season two finale.moreless
