I thought John Spencer looked a little stiff in this ep.

If that's a play on words it's in extremely bad taste

Not only is it in bad taste, it isn't even funny. Everyone knows that rigor has come and gone by now.

I agree, it was eerie watching him talk about Leo's heart condition.

Josh and Toby's phone conversation was pretty good.

It was nice to see the humor back with Toby and Josh and not non-stop battling. "Too Soon?"

Good episode. But, it seems like it's pretty typical: the Santos campaign is always protrayed as bumbling and coming from behind only to pull it out in some big speech at the end. For a change of pace, how about doing that formula on the Vinnick side?


Edit: that should be "change" not "chance"

the vinick side gets no airtime now at all.

The whole underwear thing was stupid, I saw it as soon as she bent down, the first time I've ever seen something like that on tv. and then from there it was clear where it was going.

Little blondie chick has gotten totally hot of late.

It was a bit of a lumbering episode, and we all knew that Leo leaked the info.
