  • They totally messed it up!!!

    It was Britney Spears for Christ's sake!! They could've done so much more with her, cudos to Britney for trying her best, she's the only reason Im giving it a 10 (well her and Sean). The writers missed an awesome chance, I mean Britney should've been in every scene of the show, the secondary plot line with Karen wanting a baby wast necessary, they could've exploted Britney so much more!
  • Karen wants a baby and goes about an interesting way of trying to get one. Grace is excited about her pregnancy. Out TV is taken over by a new company and re-vamped in a totally different way. Jack is assigned a co-host and Will helps Jack stay true to Ja

    I didn't really like this episode. Up to this point, the episodes have caused me to have mixed feelings about the show going off the air. For the most part this season has been reminiscent of the earlier ones. After watching this one, I was reminded of why the show needs to end now. In addition Britney Spears was not funny. She was actually obnoxious.

    This episode tell very much about Karen and finally getting her first step to divorce from Stan, while Jack and Will have a fight against the newly company that bought their TV Programming Station. Then the appearance of Britney Spears, as Amber Louise, in this episode in which she is radical lesbain, but it will have been much better if she would have kiss a woman, or at least, tell more people that she is lesbian, but still it was not that bad to watch....
  • Why did I watch that?

    I was very disappointed in this episode. The whole Karen trying to buy a baby was stupid and Wanda Sykes' comedic talent was wasted.

    I admit that I actually like Britney Spears (or at least find her mildly interesting in the tabloids) but I couldn't get excited about this episode. And the big shock (that Amber Louise was a hard core lesbian) wasn't that big. Or that great.

    It's bad when the funniest joke in the show was the running gag about Jack's Matthew McConaughey mug and calling his assisstant "Elizabeth." The main plot was boring and the secondary polot was boring. Overall a bad episode. Edit this review
  • Britney spears plays an Ultra-conservative-Right wing-Republican who comes to revamp Jack's OutTV show. However in reality she is a hardcore Lesbian, and tried to get Jack to sell out too. Horrible acting and writing in this episode.

    Britney spears plays an Ultra-conservative-Right wing-Republican who comes to revamp Jack's OutTV show. She reveals that she is a hardcore lesbian but hides it/sells-out who she is so that she can have fame (being on the TV show), and she tried to convince jack to do the same. Jack (with Will's motivation) refuses to sell out who he is to remain on the show and as a result gets fired by the network.

    this Episode was horrible. Really bad. Horribly written, i don't know what the writers were doing with britney. she has no ability to act and all of her lines were delivered Extremely poorly. the Dialog with her southern accent just wasn't funny. it was actually painful to watch. i think a lot of Britney fans tuned in for this episode, i wonder if they were surprised to see her look like Jessica simpson? anyways, if you missed this episode, count your blessings. this episode lacked the classic will and grace humor and wit.
  • Painful to watch

    So Britney makes an appearence in this show and wow she was terrible! She should just stick to singing, that's what she's good at.

    Anyways, Karen wants to have a baby now that Grace is having one so she hires the make up lady, Cricket, who was just applying make-up on Grace. Cricket agrees to it but Grace feels Karen is only doing it because she is jealous. Meanwhile Jack is forced to change his show to please the new network owners, who have also added a new co-host Amber Louise (Britney), but the show has to change so much that Jack is not pleased and Will backs him up.

    The episode had its moments with Karen and Cricket, Jack and Will but with the arrival of Britney it just sucked. Back when they had Jennifer Lopez for a a few episodes that was still fun to watch, but Britney just wasn't a good idea.
  • i hate this show and the only reason i watched it was because of britney.

    that being said, now for my review...in this episode, brit plays a conservative christian who is jack's new talk show co-host after the thing gets bought out. meanwhile, karen wants to have a child and asks a makeup lady, played by wanda sykes, to be her surrogate...okay, this episode was overall...bleh... i mean it was okay, but i think they were trying to hard...brit she was alright, pretty funny too, i know that she was spoofing herself a bit...i think brit tried to hard, it was too over the top and not in a good way...but she was overal good...though i will say the sub-plot was slightly better...
  • a coroportation buys out tv and trys to take it over with conservatives. meanwhile, karen is trying to buy another woman to have a baby for her.

    Compared to last weeks hilarious episode, this was a stinker. After all the hype they put up for this episode, it wasn't all that interesting. Britney Spears played an unconvincing lesbian from the south and is Jacks new cohost. The only good thing about this episode was the subplot between grace and karen where karen pays a cosmetic woman to have a baby for her, and Grace confronts her and Karen admits the real reason is becasue her and Stan are having marital issues and she is thinking about leaving him. As depressing as that may sound it was actually quite humourous and karen made the show look good once again!
