    The last 10 minutes were very funny, LOL funny, in fact. Mike rules.

    I work with many Finns and they don't sound anything like Gunther.

    I can't believe I forgot to watch this. Why can't NBC just leave it on Wednesday! Could someone recap what happened in last night's episode?

    A very disappointing episode, IMNSHO. Ed has begun a downhill slide, and I am not sure the show can recover.

    What irks is it that it's NOT because Ed and Carol are together - it's because the writers are so afraid of letting them be happy or just experience gentle growth for even a single episode that we keep having really cliched and dopey plot twists thrown at us. Liz returning felt very forced, and Ed's cringe-inducing handling of it even worse. Ed's refusal to return the gift not only felt really out of character, but it was just dumb - lessee, piss off your fiance, the woman of your dreams, or possibly anger your EX-wife? Gee, tough choice. [​IMG]

    What happened to the show I loved, with great writing that refused to sink to cliches and dumb twists every week?

    In a way, I just want the show to end. Hopefully the sooner it's done, the sooner seasons 1-3 will be out on DVD, and I can ignore season 4.

    Yes, I'm bitter, but only because the show used to be so fantastic. The writers are selling themselves, the show, and the viewers short.
