I stort stt tyckte jag att den r bra, rolig och trffsker. Jag skrattade flera gnger (rtt ovanligt fr mig) och grt en del (rtt vanligt fr mig). Bst: relationen med Spencer. Smst: att Brians pstdda "feministiska vrldssyn" (vilket iofs gller hans andra politiska sikter ocks) speglas som en grej han poserar med snarare n tycker, och som han anvnder fr att f ligga.
