  • Excellent latter season episode.

    This episode has most of the things in it that made the series great. Angel contemplates his death (Angel: "who will mourn Angel Martin" Jim: "probably a couple of credit companies") and commits a dispicable act. Jim gets dragged out of bed and taken to a thug in his pajamas. Rocky tells Jim to get a real job. Chapman gets frustrated, embarrassed and ultimately arrested (sort of). Jim gets a bank manager sauced to get information out of him. What more could anyone want?

    The only thing I haven't quite figured out is why the thugs thought they had to run over the mail truck when previously they had no trouble getting Jim's mail (and breakfast) by going to his trailer.
