Oh lord, the "Live" gimmick just KILLED this episode. The "studio audience" got really annoying, really fast. The episode was already crappy to begin with (No, I did NOT to see Man/Bear love!), but watching every character try to play to the "live" audience was irritating.
And yes, Cleveland trying to do a live manatee gag is about as stupid as it sounds.
Let's call this concept episode a failure and just move on.
"Playing guitars. It's hard to sing while playing...guitars."
It's odd. Everything about the way this season was winding down indicated that it would be the end of the series. Everyone I talked with at work about the show was thinking someone would go to jail (likely Vic, perhaps all of them) and that would end it....
