    Egads! Is the episode title a spoiler!?!?!?

    At any rate, for most of the episode I felt pretty "meh" about it. But when the party started at the end, this episode did a complete turn around. I thought the last 10 minutes were pure BL Gold. It more than made up for the rest of the episode.

    Directed by Eric Stoltz! Cool!

    I liked it I thought there was some great stuff like brad and the ultra violet light. I also like how he and coho dressed up as buzzlight year. I am happy denny and the badger are back together I like them together.

    I was struck during this episode by how bizarre it is that two shows as different as Boston Legal and Battlestar Galactica have deteriorated into so much the same thing...i.e., bad soap opera.

    Granted, they both still have their moments, but it's as if they've forgotten what they're supposed to be.

    They sure seem to delight in making judges look silly. I like Shelly Berman too much to enjoy seeing him as such a character.

    Didn't we see a costume party at this law firm before?

    For me the big difference is the main characters on boston legal Ie alan and denny are stil likeable and fun to watch. On the other hand the main characters IE starbuck and apollo are not likeable and have been ruined.

    I really like the Clarence (et al.) character. The acting is terrific. It was almost a surprise to see him act like a normal person on his date, and he did that well too. And as unlikely a couple as he and his boss would seem to make, I think the on-screen chemistry between them works.

    Why can't they stop using a character before they've squeezed every drop of life out of them and are just left with the dried up rind?

    The Bella/Bethany nonsense is way too old; move on already.

    Pretty typical for a DEK show to go from thoughtful and delightful to dramatic soapy BS.

    Ally McBeal.

    Yes he did. :up: :D

    Those two really have to get married. Alan would look lovely in a white wedding gown. And then they can go on a fishing trip for the honeymoon.

    It was my hope that she would have gone as Carol Vessie.
