    Forgot to add ... SPOILERS.

    The scene beginning with Tommy's date with the Jewish girl who, you know, was priceless. From her rambling, to Gina Gershon's appearance, to Tommy's instincts forcing him to run toward disaster while everyone else is running out -- it doesn't get much better.
    Starting from the very first minute with the fight, the actors and writers really turned on their game.

    Excellent episode, though the last half struggled for me because the fucking cable kept blinking, screwing up the sound.

    The rambling was hysterical though I wish I could have heard what Lou said before he hung up on Tommy at the restaurant. Can't believe he actually gave the baby away either.

    And the part at the end, where he brings the guys out of the fire and gets called an asshole. Priceless. The show has improved over the last few weeks.

    Though I also thought the Franco shit was a little out of no where, and I still can't get over how Mike just doesn't care about the fire. Weird shit. And the intervention should be great.

    Good episode, reminded me of last season.
    Frantic pace. Sharp dialogue. Interesting twists and turns. Hot chicks, this time Gina Gershon, who want to get with Tommy and I love me some Amy Sedaris.

    Franco’s scene did drag but I’ve always had a girl-crush on Susan Sarandon so she kept me entertained.
    The actor who plays Franco seems pretty one-dimensional. Reggie Jackson and a macho fireman are the same characters in different twilight zones.
    And even though Amy Sedaris always plays a nut job, she still makes me laugh. Her "date" outfit, her stuffing her mouth with a full dinner roll, her standing there with a fresh fru-fru cocktail while he's saving people -- all hilarious.

    The Sarandon storyline has to come to a head one way or the other. I just don't get how Franco goes from superhot for his fiance to ready to go after his old girl like that.

    Gina Freaking Gershon. Funny how Leary keeps writing hot women into his character's life -- and still keeping Tommy's wife in the picture. He isn't just in this for the hockey scenes ...

    I wasn't a fan of that blouse Sarandon had on -- I kept thinking, "is she pregnant?!"

    How many more times is Janet gonna run away?

    Easy. He was committing commitment suicide.
    He was trying to destroy his relationship with his fiancee the best way he knew how. That's why Susan S. sat him down and talked to him. It was all right there on the screen.
