Old Christine: A Fair to Remember (Finale)

the new adventures of old christine; julia louis-dreyfus(S01E13)  I adore Julia Louis-Dreyfus. She really turned on the charm in this episode. It had the perfect combination of physical comedy and... facial... comedy. What do I mean by that? Louis-Dreyfus' face is so expressive. I guess that's physical comedy. Anyway, this was definitely my favorite episode of the season. It even had some Matthew and some of the 'meany moms'.

I loved the scene where Christine dressed up and wore lipstick and then was totally devastated when Burton's new girlfriend introduced herself as 'Christine'. She spilled her purse and tampons went all over the floor. Her ex-husband helped her pick up the contents of her purse and told her to laugh about it and she laughed "like a mental patient". Then Christine and Richard make out and he magically gets her bra off (how could she have worn a bra with the open back of that dress?).

It was great to have Burton back, wasn't it? He has such great chemistry with Christine. I wish it could've worked out between them, but then I guess that would kill the premise of the show. Anyway, the making out session ends Christine and Burton's budding romance and splits up new Christine and Richard. There was a 'To Be Continued' at the end but I thought this was the season finale. What kind of dumb cliffhanger was that?

Best line: "I got most of it but I couldn't bring myself to pick up anything with strings or wings." - Matthew

Old Christine is one of the best shows on television and it continually surprises me -- I laugh out loud -- something sitcoms haven't done in a while.

How I met your mother is the best sitcom on the air -- the closest thing to Friends we will get. Funny, heartwarming and sweet.

Good to see Julia L-D make good. This show I think proves a point- it's not really about the acting with a sitcom- it's the writing.

Joey, George C, any of the spinoffs fail due to stupid set-ups and forgettable lines.

This show is well written and so far so good.

By the way, 2 1/2 men is the best written comedy on television. That show never fails to crack me up.
