If you haven't watched last nights episode you might want to stop reading and watch it first.
Christopher Loyd made a guest appearance which may not seem like a big deal. But the writers had fun adding in a few "Back to the Future" moments. The story centered around Sabrina (Shannon Marie Woodward) wanting Jimmy (Lucas Neff) to buy a new car. His parents, Virginia (Martha Pimpton) and Burt (Garret Dillahunt) try to convince him that he should not take out a car loan because credit is evil. They take him out looking for cars listed in the local classified ads with a budget of $850.00 Several junkers later they flash to Jimmy picking up Sabrina in his parents old clunker which he paid a little more than $850.00 for so that his parents could purchase their dream car a DeLorean. Virginia and Burt recount some humorous stories of their past and have their BTF moment by trying to get the DeLorean to go faster than 80 with no success.
Sabrina wins Jimmy over by proving that his parents old junker is no safer for Hope than his beat up old van was and she persuades him to purchase a new car with all the bells and whistles. Just as he goes to sign the papers the car salesman informs him of his poor credit score of 95. As usual Jimmy finds out that his parents once again screwed up. When he was five they stole his identity and ruined his credit. To restore Jimmy's credit his parents decide to talk the creditor (Christopher Loyd) into clearing Jimmy's credit. He refuses until another mishap by his parents results in Loyd seeing the DeLorean. To get the debt cleared they end up handing over the DeLorean to Loyd who has his BTF moment as he tries to go back in time to marry Susan Boyle before she wins Idol.
This is one of my favorite shows and I know my writing does it no justice. But if you haven't watched you should check it out. The cast and the writers make this show one of my tops when I am looking for lighthearted humor.
