Gone with the Wind 

The care package that James gets from home contains a dead pet and Mike's relationship with Heidi leaves no time to help. Since Carter and Paul have no air conditioning, Carter springs for a large fan but Paul won't pay his share.

New York suffers a scorching heath-wave. Paul 'spreads' Carter's cash for fans over a miniature toy for his colleagues and a giant ship model for his own office. On its top setting, it blows everyone away. Alas that fate also befalls the urn in which James received the cremated remains of 'aunt Bessy', his favorite cow back home. Mike enjoys good air-co but is so eager to show off his hot affair with supermodel Klum that he can't concentrate on her, which kills the relationship untimely. Written by KGF Vissers

One of the funniest shows in the collection.
10 January 2015 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

Other than the suspicious acting by Heidi Klum, this episode was quite funny. It picked up from last episode as Mike and the beautiful model Ms Klum are in a sexual relationship. Heidi wants to keep the relationship a secret so that the press will not be hounding them while Mike wants to be able to tell the world. When Mike lets the secret out at one of the Mayor's press conference, the relationship may make a change.

In one of the funniest situations in the series, James's parent has sent him the ashes of his Aunt Bessy. Bessie was actually a cow from back home and since the cow always like James the most, he received her ashes. But when the ashes are accidentally sucked up in the air current of a large fan, someone has some explaining to do.

The situation with the ashes is one of the better sight gags on TV. It was actually a laugh-out-loud moment as Bessie's ashes explode in a cloud of dust. The scene, plus the after effects, are comedy gold. The show had good stories and an interesting concept. One of the funniest episode in the collection. Great watch.
