Episode Number:

This show has everything I want in entertainment television and more! It was so much fun, I watched the show twice. Surprisingly, I laughed even harder the second time around - I had missed some of the more subtle humor the first time. There actually is an amazing level of intelligence to the witty dialogue. I probably missed a few great lines due to eye-candy distraction... Sometimes the world today seems cold, dumb and ugly. For me, this episode of Franklin & Bash was hot, smart and beautiful. Just the break from reality I really needed. This is my new favorite show on TV. And, if you want a real laugh, watch the pilot twice!
