Review: While it still hasn’t reached the point of “It’s Getting Hot in Herrree,” this episode was marginally better than last week. I believe this is mainly because for once, the series focused on one sole story arc instead of doing more than one. In doing so, we got to focus on what exactly was going on. Even though this episode was Kevin-heavy (which is 3/4 times the case) we got to see more facets of Hart on the show.
