Chuckle Most of the Kristina stuff in this episode was — and I’ve talked about this before — very Sex and the City… because, well, everything she did in these 40 minutes, Samantha did in an entire season. At first that was fun; watching all the ladies get drunk and talk about Mark Cyr’s schlong (their word, not mine), Kristina drunkenly shaving her head, us just knowing that she was totally Googling wigs the next day while fighting with Adam, “Max loves it; he says I look like Bane from the Batman movie,” us getting to watch real-life couple Peter Krause and Lauren Graham (and yes, I will mention this every time I possibly can) go wig shopping, Kristina teaming with Amber to surprise Adam for once in his goddamn life, “‘It’s gonna feel like being with uh… you know…’ ‘With your wife.’ ‘Yeah, with my wife,’” Kristina pretending be 27 years old and then 34 (which was even less believable), Ryan Hansen’s “Three kids? You put three in there?”, Adam looking like a Don Draper/Merv Griffin hybrid (if only he acted out that entire Paul Rudd mirror scene from Wanderlust), “Think you can locate the Johnson file?” (which I actually said “Ew” out loud at, despite watching the episode alone), the subtle reference Funkytown — but then of course the writers had to end our good times and make Kristina too tired to have sex. I get it: it’s real, it’s true to the story, but come on, throw these two a freaking bone here. (Pun intended.)

You lied to us, last week’s teaser: I thought I was sitting down to watch a much-needed happy episode and instead at the end, you made it subtly about politics! (Not that I disagree with medical marijuana or the message here, but I dunno, I guess I just wanted the show to have Adam, Kristina, Crosby, Jasmine and Otis sit around passing a joint a la That ’70s Show. Is that so much to ask?)

Monica PotterGreat Good Guys: Tricia Poe (Con Air) and Alison Gordon (Saw)Terrible Bad Guy: Jezzie Flannigan (Along Came a Spider) Before Fox bedeviled Alex Cross, Monica Potter made the character’s older incarnation (played by Morgan Freeman) jump through hoops as a Secret Service agent who works alongside the forensic psychologist while hiding her true agenda. When you think, “evil, double-crossing psycho,” Monica Potter isn’t the first person who springs to mind, which is no doubt part of the reason she was cast. But you also have to believe that she’d be capable of pulling off this operation and, frankly, that’s even more unbelievable than the thought of Tyler Perry growing up to be Morgan Freeman.
