Mother-in-laws are always a problem.
27 October 2018 | by cpoho-52110See all my reviews

This episode is a typical Mother-in-law bothers son-in-law sitcom episode of the period along with the standard run of the mill jokes. It's is a okay episode in structure, it's pretty cut and dry. The plus for this episode is the acting is pretty good with Alan Hale Jr. As the celebrity psychologist.
