I can't wait. Will wait until tomorrow, but it is great to have this back.

Surprised for the lack of love.

sort of a waste of locklear really.. Did she ever smile at all the last two eps or even change outfits? Not that I expect her to run around in swimwear or anything but they could of had anyone play a stone princess, she was sort of wasted in that role IMO.. Would have rather of seen her play a role where she did something other then just walk around stone faced for two eps..

as for betty white, the end of this ep was sort of shock but I'm not really looking forward to a few story lines that focus' on her much. She always plays "betty white" on whatever show she is on. That's not a bad thing in small batches, I thought she was great on the show last season.. Sep as I said, I don't really want to have a muti-ep story line that is about her. Guess we wait and see what happens.

Locklear was wasted.

Who cares if we get an influx of Betty White over the next few eps - she got rid of Bernie!

I'm still liking the combo of Allen, Denny and Brad.

Great episode, I really hope she gets to screw over her deadbeat exhusband, or he wins a tournament mid divorce and she gets to take him to the cleaners.

I think Betty White is great. I hope she isn't going anywhere. Like B.A. said, she should be given a medal for wasting Bernie.

What did Denny call "Schadenfreude?"

I agree that Locklear was wasted. They could have had any blonde bimbo sit there and play that role.

I can't remember what he said, but I remember laughing my ass off at that and him whining that he didn't get to have sex w/ her.

Loved his comment to the Black Widow - something like "I tell you when I visit you in jail, conjugal."

Think it was "shutterbug".

I love this show. I laughed more in the opening sequence than I did the hole episode of the office.

Rue McClanahan could have played the Locklear part with her usual sexual charisma and it could've been a Golden Girls reunion to boot!

Oops ... my bad. That was Candace Bergen, not Bea Arthur. They're looking more and more alike these days.

No mention of the scene of Spader was stretching out during the questioning with the housekeeper during the trial? He was channeling Dylan McDermott there

The credits listed Monica Potter as a special guest star. I didn't see her on anywhere. Were they unable to edit out a scene where she was in the background again?

I love me some Betty White.

Actually, I am quite keen on the whole cast now that they have switched up the cast. I thought this episode was excellent.

I was under the impression the cast shakeup of last season was to give the main characters more screen time.

Now..if these 'new episodes' are the remainder from last season, does that mean they were in the process of ejecting monica potter and the british chick?

Are these the actual eps that were on deck last season or have they been reshot or just shuffled into season 2?

I'd think that we would have heard cast shakeup news last season.

^ The latter. These are the final episodes of season one that never aired because Grey's Anatomy became such a big hit. The newbies were shot and edited into these episodes, I'm guessing mostly at the expense of Monica Potter. That's why you didn't see any interactions between the newbies and the veterans in the first episode, and the fleeting interaction in the last one.

The cast change was made during the off-season.
