  • Cockroach Alan Harper...

    Oh well, why even bother to complain, this half hour just fitted perfectly in the shows 9th season run where it just gets worse. Did anybody enter the writers' room and said: let's try something new, less fun and more awkward, embarrassing moments? To be honest, it's getting painful to watch...

    So what happened? Of course Alan did what Alan does and leeched off of his friends and family using his heart crisis. And why did they all put up with him (except Zoey, I'll get there)? I get Berta's explanation that she didn't want Alan to haunt her, but the others? Well, Walden had some disturbing family stories to tell (a lot of family members seem to drop dead in his presence), but again: the others? All these years we've been told they don't like him or even hate him... Until the end I was dreading to have watched another dream sequence, fortunately, they didn't take this road this time...

    Of course, Zoey was less than happy. And in the end she called his bluff and ended his reign. Good for her, bad for us because she did so being the most annoying, stuck up, constantly nagging b... - I mean - person I can think of. Didn't Walden already choose Alan over Zoey? Given the same choice, I'd take Alan and his leeching over the most miserable person in a heartbeat. Wishlist for the finale: get rid off Zoey, and... no, that will do it.

    It was nice to see Jason Alexander as Alan's doctor. However, he didn't save the episode from being unfunny and free of laughs...
