  • After finding out his high school sweetheart is now a grandmother, Felix becomes obsessed with growing, unfortunately bringing Oscar down as well. Then when they try acting younger they realize they dont need to.

    One of the aspects of this series that I like and one that gets overlooked is how it deals with realities of the human condition. And aging is something everyone has to deal with at some point, we have to, we all get old! And I like how they handle it. Felix becomes obsessed to the point he drags Oscar down as well. Its understandable. While over the course of the series, there was a tendancy to make Felix too annoying sometimes, this time, we can empathize with him. Oscar can empathize, to the extent, he ends up feeling old. It takes a telling off from Murray to be their wake up call! When they try to act young, they end up feeling foolish. This is a good episode I like more every time.
