I had just enough time to watch this before bed and it might be my favorite of the season so far. Kevin Kline's Mr. Fischoeder continues to be amusing and the kids continue to be great. Bob's family playing along with the charade (until Bob's drunken collapse) was gold.
Not much else to say, since I'm tired from a long night, but it's a thumbs up for me!
Bob: Thanksgiving is this family's favorite holiday. Linda: Ehhhh... Bob: Wait, it's not? Louise: No way! Check the rankings. It goes MY birthday, Christmas, Halloween... Tina: Easter... Gene: Hanukkah... Louise: Snow Day, Amateur Night... Bob: Uhhh...ok, that's... Tina: Veteran's Day... Louise: Tooth Fairy Eve... Bob: Not real. Gene: St. Patrick's Day, May Day, Groundhog Day, season premiere of Game of Thrones... Bob: You've never even seen that... Louise: Opposite Day, Day of the Dead... Bob: Stop. Gene: DAWN of the Dead, Carnivale... Louise: Angela Lansbury's birthday... Bob: No. Gene: Bath Night! Louise: Black Friday, THEN Thanksgiving! Linda: Love Black Friday. Bob: Black Friday before Thanksgiving? Louise: Yeah! 'Cause it's dark!
I can not believe this show airs on national television. I liked this episode - I liked it more than last week, in part because I didn't have the nostalgia for GI Joe - but it's so committed to being so completely weird and kind of exclusive.
