one of my favorite episodes of a funny show
29 August 2013 | by stufieldSee all my reviews

This is actually one of my top TV comedy episodes of all time. The episode revolves around the team getting a Bowl bid after a winning season. The best way to see it is (of course) without commercials and watch from beginning to end. The team gets to be in the Patriot Bowl held near Philadelphia, and some of the humor revolves around that. It help to be from that area but its not necessary. Craig T. Nelson is great as the Coach and this episodes writing showcases that. All the characters are fine in some funny scenes. For the sports fans there are probably things I didn't get and that may add to your enjoyment. It is tough to write a review without hinting at the end but lets just say that it is a classic story in the style of Bob Newhart or Bill Cosby where the punchline won't disappoint. It is number 10 of the 5th season, and the show had really hit its stride.
