Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • A tale of two batchelor(ette) parties.

    This was a well written and funny episode of The New Adventures of Old Christine and I would have thought it deserved more than the really low score it is achieving around here. I loved the scenes in Vegas, it wa great to see a new naughtier side to New Christine's character. The Laser Tag scenes were also very funny too with Matthew taking it all really seriously and the 2 brothers squabling about who should be best man. It turned out that Joe, Richard's brother, wanted to be best man because he wanted to be asked despite being unavailable for any month that Richard might choose to get married!moreless
  • Richard and New Christine have bachelor and bachelorette parties.

    In the spirit of every CBS comedy we got the obligatory laser tag episode. It was as enjoyable as it was on How I Met Your Mother or The King of Queens though with Matthew taking the game way too seriously capped off by screaming "What the h guys!" when they failed to "cover" him.

    Meanwhile the girls went to Las Vegas with Christine discovering that she might be too old for it, seeing New Christine getting all the attention. I loved their reactions to losing a dollar at the slot machines as I know first hand how gambling losses can be.

    This episode featured a great balance as both the male and female scenes were well-written and had generally laugh-out-loud moments. Not a series classic, but a very fun episode overall.moreless
  • Season 4, Episode 14.

    When Christine and Barb throw New Christine a spur-of-the-moment Bachelorette party in Vegas, they discover a wild side of her that is the polar opposite of her usual up-tight personality. There were definitely too many commercials in this episode. Christine was looking pretty darn good in this episode, though. I actually haven't seen this show in a while... Since earlier in the season... The one where Christine's boyfriend is like bi-polar or something... Richard's brother is back! Woohoo! Haha, Barb said she loves when people throw up. Haha, pretty entertaining episode. I liked the fact that Richard and New Christine are finally engaged. LMAO Christine... "Well if it were me... And it was me..." Haha, great writing. :)moreless

      New Christine: But I would love it if you would be my maid of honor.
      Christine: Oh.

      New Christine: I threw up so much I'm finally going to fit into my wedding dress.

    • New Christine: I'm sorry, I don't know what's wrong with me. Just listening to all your stories made me realize that I haven't lived at all. Shouldn't I live a little before I marry Richard?
      Christine: Well, there are a lot of things you should do before you marry Richard. One of them is not marry Richard.

    • Christine: Man, those guys were repulsive. I had to literally push them out of the way to get to New Christine. And not one of them laid a hand on me. Vegas has really changed.

    • Barb: That girl is not equipped for this place. And how are we going to explain to Richard that we lost his fiancée in Vegas?
      Christine: We'll find her, Barb, okay? What kind of trouble could a young, drunk girl without a shirt get into in Vegas?

    • Christine: I wanted to breathe in some secondhand smoke, eat some 99¢ prime rib, get in a fist fight. I never get to go on vacation.

    • Barb: We better get [New Christine] some coffee.
      Christine: See, this is why I didn't want to do this, okay. Why do we have to babysit her?
      Barb: Because we brought her here when she was perfectly happy with a bran muffin and a broken cup.

    • Christine: Can we have three shots of tequila here?
      New Christine: Oh, I don't drink tequila.
      Christine: I was ordering for me.

    • Barb: We got thrown out of Circus, Circus. That's almost impossible.

    • New Christine: My bachelorette party was pretty good, too. Some girls from my office took me downstairs to the coffee shop and got me a cake. Well, not really a cake, a cupcake. A bran-muffin.
