Terror on the ice
22 September 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

So far, 'Lame Gretzky' is my favorite title. It just sounds like a total Barry burn (and it is). Speaking of Barry, the character is in top form in this episode; just imagine him trying to teach Adam how to not suck at hokey, complete with pads and unchecked aggression.

And this isn't even the main storyline. That one involves Beverly at maximum helicopter mom trying to sabotage Erica's SATs. There's probably a better way to say that, but then again, it's Beverly.

This is great all around; the writing fires on all cylinders, the performances are great, and the laughs keep coming.

8/10
