Finally, I've been waiting for this mini Alias reunion for what seems like forever. Sucks that it's already been cancelled but at least FOX is burning off the episodes.

Though this show has been cancelled, it was fun to see Michael Vartan guest-star on this show, and his one-on-one with Bradley Cooper was hilarious. Cooper's face was so red, I thought he was going to blow a gasket.

The feud between the restaurants was pretty, I LOL more during this episode than I did in this week's Arrested Development.

I thought it was one of the better episodes of the series.

Bonnie Somerville looked great

Just caught this show for the first time. It was hilarious! We need more sitcoms WITHOUT laugh tracks.

French dude tells him that he put the glue on the phone after he had the guard "bear down on it" (sticking it up his...you get it) or something like that. The credits start after Jack looks all confused asking what that meant.

Why can Michael Vartan speak French, but he can't do a French accent? Probably because he can't act I guess

if i remember my random trivia right Michael Vartan really is French. Maybe he was going for an over the top style accent.

Pretty good ep, although not as good as I thought it would be. I think part of it was having to wait so damn long before we got to see it. And I think another part of it was I on such a high for having seen a new Arrested Development before it. But overall, I still enjoyed it. Like AD, I can't believe that no one is watching this show. At least Fox is letting us see the final episodes.

are they? there are 9 episodes left, and only 2 scheduled (the next two weeks)... when are they going to squeeze in the rest? same for the remaining eps of AD?

I would really love to say that I missed this show, but it's been so long since those first 3 eps aired I barely remember what they were like.....
still, I enjoy this show, and I look forward to the dvds......

I think I actually liked the earlier episodes a bit better. This one seemed much more broad, especially with the psycho bread maker parts.

As for Vartan doing a bad French accent, it's not incongruous if he speaks French fluently. I'm bilingual and I can't do a good accent either way.

Vartan was born in France.

I was going to do a Coneheads joke, but I wasn't sure how many people would get it.

People can watch Surface on NBC, King of Queens and How I Met Your Mother on CBS, some nanny/swap show on ABC, and 7th Heaven on the WB.

I enjoyed that too and there was a line that was said that, "it was like we used to work together."
Also liked the line, "10 to 1 he has a necklace full of ears"
Ashame that this is cancelled, I liked the humor more on the show when it has more of an edge.
So was that Kumar??
