Barry finds that escaping Fuches and winning Sally's affections is harder than he thought.

The Love Song of Gene M. Cousineau
The whole “those who can’t do, teach” adage presents a conundrum, most clearly articulated where acting is concerned: If a guy’s halfway decent on camera, what’s he doing at a dumpy performance space yelling at a bunch of amateurs instead of traipsing off to shoot in some remote country? Anyone with the availability to teach acting necessarily lacks the success to be qualified for that very job. You’ve got to be just competent enough to convince your charges that you know what you’re doing, and yet not so competent that you could actually be doing it.

The living embodiment of this brain twister is Gene Cousineau, who claims the spotlight this week with a surprisingly intense, layered turn from Henry Winkler.

Henry Winkler is really astonishingly good in this show.

Definitely, but I think over the course of the season, Anthony Carrigan as (bald) "NoHo Hank" is MVP.
