Nice interaction between characters.
7 January 2015 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

In a New Years Eve theme show, the staff has assembled for work and are now regretting the things that went on at the Mayor's New Year Eve party. It seems all have a splitting hang-over and are upset at others for actions at the party.

James and Stacey had some sort of words at the party. Paul slammed the Mayor at the event. Carter made Stuart have feelings and Nikki and Mike had an encounter on the dinner table. And now it seems that everyone has issues.

In this episode we deal with more interaction between characters than has been in the entire series. The show was entertaining from beginning to end. I know we, as viewers, should not think about this but I was wondering,- If they went to a New Years Eve party, then why were they at work on New Years Day all hung over from the previous night. New Years Day is an official holiday in the city of New York. But then again, they would have not worked for the script. Good Watch.
