The Barto And Ferret Show

Starstruck - Interspecies romance takes a rocky turn with the Ferret gets stuck-up from her movie role and Barto gets hot and heavy with a fellow med student. Oh, and Mikey dates a bisexual movie star (Rebecca Romijn-Stamos) who must be deaf, dumb and blind, because she puts the moves on Elispa. Oh yeah, and Jack and Jill move in together temporarily and it doesn't work out. Oh yeah, and the show is cancelled. Hah!!!

I'll Take ManNOTtan

A Key Exchange - Randi Mayem Singer challenges us to a grudge match, including every known New York landmark in the background of this episode. But the joke's still on her, because even Derek Jeter and Patrick Ewing working together couldn't save this show.

Under Pressure

Under Pressure - Jack and Jill lie on a heap of moldy blankets on the roof. If the stars hate them as much as I do, they may be in for an asteroid shower.

The Foul Nine Yards

Animal Planet, Part II - Jack and Jill go long, driving Tumbleweed to request reassignment to a chaster show like Seventh Heaven. Elispa rejects capitalist consumerism in favor of marathon staring contests. Mikey gets a subplot that promises to leave him shirtless for the next few episodes, while Barto, thankfully, keeps his clothes on for once.

Animal Planet, Part I

Animal Planet, Part I - Jack lists Jill's good qualities, which include good lips and major chemistry, but his cons are that he's jobless and wears hats. When did my mother get a job writing for third-tier TV shows?

When You Wish Upon A Car

When You Wish Upon A Car - Please note that when diluting all the precepts of magical realism, make sure you start with a shot of a blandly handsome second-rate TV star and his enormous cleft chin.

Bad Timing And Dirty Laundry

Bad Timing And Dirty Laundry - Jill scraps specificity for soul-smooching, hoisting Jack on the dryers for the PG-13 clinch we all saw on the previews. Jack helps him strip off her purple gauze shirt to reveal a dazzling white under-wire Wonderbra.

Pseudos, Sex And Sidebars

Pseudos, Sex And Sidebars - Mikey announces his desire to seek out "a pseudo-girlfriend," a phenomenon he defines as "more than a one-night stand but less than someone you've got to go out with every Saturday night." I believe the correct term would be "quasi-" or even "semi-girlfriend," but who's asking. Certainly not Randi Mayem Singer, who wrote this episode.
