First things first. Why all the hype about John Stamos? He was hardly featured this week or last and that's it it was a two-week appearance. All those "Very Special Episode"-type promos that said "John Stamos joins ER. " for what? Like Bette Midler brilliantly sings in her new Peggy Lee tribute CD: "Is That All There Is?" OK, I said it. Besides that let down (cue Debbie Downer noise), I quite enjoyed tonight's overly hyped "crash episode." This week certainly was a busy one for plane crashes, what with Wednesday night's Lost tailies flashback episode and now this. I knew from the promos that one of tonight's victims would be tennis star Serena Williams (she was pretty darned good), but who knew Uncle Leo from Seinfeld would be another crash victim? To be fair, that was Len Lesser too bad his cocker spaniel showed up too late. I bawled my eyes out when the Matthew McConaughey look-alike gestured to Pratt and Ray to stop trying to pump his heart. "Do you want us to stop? Are you ready?" Then the guy nods yes in front of his girlfriend and family. I totally lost it (loud sobbing once again, so glad I was home alone). Meanwhile, how wonderful that Sam called Haleh to come in and help them we knew she'd be back. I couldn't wait for Evil, I mean, Eve to see Haleh when she came in. Neela seeing Gallant at the end was awesome. The previews showed that they get married in two weeks, so good for Neela. And what about Luka and Abby friends with benefits, or just friends? I loved her look when she woke up next to him. I bet they continue this courtship since we haven't seen Luka smile like that in a while. But wait until Sam finds out. Dave Anderson
