    Even though this wasn't as funny or hilarious as other episodes of the series, the cast deserves credit for telecasting the season opener live. It takes a talented cast to film an episode live in front of millions of television viewers, and they all did great. The moments where Debra Messing and Sean Hayes broke down a bit and laughed at each others' dialogue and expressions was almost more amusing than anything in the script. I just think it's great that performers aren't afraid to make mistakes or just lose a little bit of control in front of so many viewers with no chances of re-shoots or editing. Kudos to all involved!
