    Ugh, I could do without a Kate Flannery appearance on this show. It is bad enough that she ruins The Office whenever she is on, but why have her ruin Wizards too?

    This was the last episode of the show for about a month, and it was not bad, but not great either. The scene where the Russos were trying to be funny was sadly less funny than anything else on the show prior to that point, which I found to be strange.

    Alex was amusing here in wanting to be a Finkle, but the rest of the cast disappointed here.

    As I said, there's several better episodes of this show out there.moreless

    alex wants to join harper's parents in a musical act because she likes them, but later learns it is all work and no fun so she schemes to get out of the act.

    it was alright. it is one of the rare moments that actually made me laugh out loud, when Max says "She's right" about Alex's response to where Romania is and Jerry is all mad, "No she isn't!" but the rest was kind of boring I thought, my overall grade for the episode is going to be about a C+ or so. Good episode but not great methinksmoreless
  • Not really my favorite.

    Sadly, even we though we finally got to see Harper's parents, the people who portrayed them kind of ruined the episode. Curse you, Kate Flannery! I can't believe this is what was followed up from all those references in series about Harper's family. When I pictured seeing Harper's parents, I always thought of them as being a little odd. In this is episode, they were odd, but I was expecting more like "lowlife bickering parents" kind of odd, not a "tacky showbiz couple" odd. So I was squirming through most of the episode. And since when is Alex into weird stuff like that? It was a little out of character for Alex to want to be with a finally that seemed more embarrassing than her own. But I guess it's just another one of her quirks. Thank goodness Max was there to save the show with his usual random acts. If it wasn't for him, the Russo's cheesy comedy act, unfortunately, might have been the highlight of the episode. So although others might disagree, I thought this episode was boring and did do the series any justice. "And que the applause!". Yeah, whatever.moreless

    • Justin: Hey, guys, how's it going? So, check it out. Mom sent more photos of possible beaches for this year's family photo.
      Alex: Wait. We're supposed to go to a place we never go and put our arms around each other like we never do, just to have a picture we can send to people we don't like anyway?
      Jerry: And this year there's a record number of families we don't like to send them to.
