  • A great episode.

    This is probably the best episode since the writers came back from the strike. Alan runs into his ex-neighbor Cynthia, who happens to be good friends with his ex-wife Judith. They go on a date and they end up having sex. Well all is fine, except she mentions to Alan that Judith always talks about how great her current husband, Melnick (play fabulously by Ryan Stiles.) is great in bed and how he is her best ever. This bothers Alan to the point where he hallucinates Judith and Melnick having sex everywhere he goes. It even gets to the point that it ruins whatever chances he has with Cynthia. So Alan, with "help" from Charlie, tries to figure out Melnick's secret. There were some great scenes in this episode. Alan's hallucinations were funny, but Charlie's conversation with Melnick in the garden scene was laugh-out-loud. I also liked the scene in the beginning when Jake was eating a bear claw that someone left on the table. And the "secret" to Melnick's great sex was hilarious, yet not over-the-top. The tag scene with Charlie and Alan on the balcony was also funny too. The only weakness as the previous reviewer stated was not enough Berta. But this didn't really bring this episode down.
