This Thanksgiving episode of Life In Pieces was one to remember.
“Testosterone Martyr Baked Knife” might be one of the most memorable Thanksgiving episode that I could remember. As the whole episode takes place on Thanksgiving Day with Greg learning that he has high testosterone and shows it off, like a macho man, with Jen and the family until he shows signs of pimples. Joan decides that she wants Heather to do the Thanksgiving dinner instead of her but learns that it’s hard to find something else after doing what you have been doing for a long time.
Meanwhile, Sam comes to Thanksgivng dinner after a sleep over with her friend and comes in high. She tries to hide it good enough that her mother and father don’t notice it but Tyler does. At times she goes next door without even how she got there.
And probably the icing on the cake happens to be the knife story when John gets his craving knife out and shows it to Sophia and tells her about how it has been in the family for years. Just as he’s about to cut the turkey the knife slips and gets stuck on the table. Trying to pull it out, he gets the guy to do it and after Matt and Greg couldn’t do it, the high Tim pulls it out but as he cuts the turkey and cuts himself and the knife goes wild. As everyone was freaking out, Sam does her toast once again.
I very muched enoyed this episode from the beginning to the end. The writng was so good and the performances from the cast was just great and memorable. I couldn’t get enough of Colin Hanks acting macho to everyone and even te knofe story just blew my mind. Overall, I give this episode a 9/10.
You can catch Life in Pieces Thursdays at 9:30/8:30c on CBS.
