Perfect Sitcom Episode
29 December 2016 | by expat44See all my reviews

Every once in a while, a sitcom episode is so perfectly written and directed that it makes the craft look SO easy. The Two Finger Rule is one such example. Hilarious! I had a friend who protested, saying he thought Charlie Sheen was such a lech he didn't want to lower his standards to such a level. Said friend busted a gut while we watched it.

The content is definitely not for pre-teens. The episode is rife with hilarious sexual innuendo and drug references. Dialogue is perfectly written and delivered in a manner that is reminiscent of screen directing legends I dare not mention. Enjoy!
