Kromm December 11, 2014 Share December 11, 2014 (edited) Holy Carp! No topic yet? Odd, because this was a GREAT episode. One thing I noticed for the first time: the scenes between George Segal and Sean Giambrone are really really good. For some reason I never thought about the chemistry between the two, given that "grandpa/grandson chemistry" is an odd thing to notice and comment on. But this isn't a normal grandpa/grandson situation--rewind and watch the scene with Pops and Adam, after Murray and Erica leave the room. It's not a little kid speaking to an elder as much as it is two cronies hashing something out. It's GREAT--there's a natural back and forth timing between them that's incredible. Also, Paul Sorvino? Yay! And that HAIR? Good lord. I know that man. I've seen that man. He's like a million mean grumpy grandpas in one. This episode features a lot more of Patton's narration than usual. But it worked for this script. And the Barry/Bev modeling storyline? The kind of crazy story this show does so well. And actually I loved Erica's role in this episode too--the snarky advisor thing she was doing--it was limited but well executed. Also, I loved the authentic New Year's footage. Different faces or not, we could DEFINITELY recognize those people. Barry was SO Barryish. Beverly was SO Beverlyish. Even Murray (the most physically different looking) was fairly recognizably Murrayish. Love love loved. And if I'm the ONLY person who laughed out loud at the New Year's thing on the screen where you could see "198" and Barry was blocking the last digit? Well I'm okay with that.
