I don't watch this show on a regular basis and I somehow knew Will's dad wouldn't make it to the end of this episode.
However, I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised with Sydney Pollack's ability to act.
I know he acts, but I mostly know him for his directorial work. Plus, a lot of actors would've overdone it!
The powerful and painful fight between Will and George gave me new respect for both actors. The rest of the episode became quite predictable, every other sitcom and his brother would've ended the exact same way, but it was still very touching. McCormack managed to pull it off and make me act surprised at something I knew was coming...
