GK and the PHC is like a comfy blanket, always welcome. but i was a little disappointed with the show. he had martin sheen last year and they did the same bits with him as last year just changed the nouns...(Guy N vists 'Johnny Lasagna" So Cal apt and nutty trendy things happen there, Gk reviews early Martin S movie clips to Martin's emabarrasment, dusty works as movie extra to Martin's hammy cowboy actor...) maybe GK didn't have time to write something new... but sheryl crow and kd lang were really good
and it was really cool getting halfprice goldstar tix to the greek !!
