    For me, this was the best episode of the series. I literally laughed-out-loud several times.

    Callie calling people 'bonebag'. Funny that it was a mixture of Bonehead and D*Bag, but with a space in between the words, the Urban dictionary says it is a condom.

    Tommy, the poor kid. First his kickstand was up, and then he got pushed down and peed on in the park!


    Ethan and his soulmate. Their romance reminded me of the scene in the Naked Gun movie where they played the song "Something tells me I'm into something good". It takes place in one day, but looks like it could have been a whole summer. And in the end when the sparks didn't fly when they kissed, she told him it was like kissing a drifter, and not a young Mick Jagger.


    Lisa and Mike in the hotel room getting the massages. A big LOL for me at the creepiness of the massage dude. And Lisa's moaning. Zowee! Poor Mike and his kickstand too. lol

    "you like that sound? That's the sound of your lotion heating up..." So creepy, and so well done!

    Yeah this episode was really good and this show has really gelled.

    It was a bit wobbly at first, but it has really come into its own.

    I like to believe in the impossible, but the reality of the tv biz and the bottom line is I can't see this getting renewed. I think last week it got a 1.2 in the coveted 18-49 demo which is well short of where any show probably needs to be to get renewed.

    Of course I wish network execs would sometimes go with their own opinion and guts and make decisions on shows based on if they are good or not... but if they did that they could be held accountable for their ability to judge the quality of tv shows.

    I mean neither running wilde and traffic light have performed well this year, but if you were a network exec and watched both shows, it seems someone tasked with the job of programming a tv network would see that one of the shows has potential and the other was just a big misfire.

    Of course Fox will just throw 3 or 4 new comedy pilots up next year and hope one or two do better. They don't have the time ability or patience to groom and build shows that might actually have a good foundation. The problem here is that the ratings seem to be so far down for this, that it is not even in the realm of where anyone might take a chance on it. That is disappointing.

    I will say the name of this show seems like a big albatross to me. It is really a bad name. Bonebag on the other hand, is an awesome name.

    I had to laugh out loud at Lisa's rant about the Futon Store going out of business sale.

    Around here, it's carpet stores that pull that.

    Yeah, Running Wilde should be the one renewed if that's the case.

    (Yes, I *JUST* commented in the pilot thread for this show that it grew on me.. I still laughed a LOT more at Running Wilde.. and hope all of the eps show up on netflix, since I missed one of them on FX.)
