Besides, this is about Winnie in the play. Kevin is just the spotlight person.
About five of the 22 minutes of this episode are actual scenes from the play. It's pretty self-serving, pretentious stuff. But at least there's no romance plot.
Odd Man Out. Kevin befriends Doug Porter. This is not Doug Porter's first appearance on the show. He's been in at least two or three earlier episodes as sort of a background character but he was named in the credits as "Doug Porter" not "Fat Kid" or whatever.
I guess America was clamouring for a Doug Porter episode. It's not bad. Numerous examples of Kevin being an asshole.
Also a lot of dream sequences. I thought that dream sequences were only in the early episodes and I remarked how out of place they seemed. But I'm now 7 episodes into season 3 and can tell you that hokey dream sequences are pretty common the show.
Same thing with 8mm film footage. I thought that only the early episodes used this but no, it's used pretty often.
The Family Car. I didn't really remember this one. The Arnold's get a new car. The car salesman is the bra salesman from Seinfeld. He must have been a character actor for salesmen.
That's pretty much the episode. Jack doesn't want to sell the old car because of the memories etc. Bring in the sad music and sappy voiceover and fade to black. Another £5 million for those Jew producers.
