Sex is in the air on UNITED STATES OF AL this week. Al (Adhir Kalyan) has only one thing on his mind. 

The writers must have a blast writing this episode, and it showed. There were many humorous one-liners and zingers. It was sweet, sexy, and made me think about “pancakes, apples and sprinting.” The acting was not over-the-top and that is why it worked as well as it did. 

On the other hand, Riley (Parker Young) is still trying to figure out Vanessa (Kelli Goss.) Who knew a missing sock could yield so much power and realizations for the entire family?  

UNITED STATES OF AL is taking all of us on a unique ride with both relationships. I have no idea what the final destination will be and that makes all the difference for our enjoyment and interest. It is available to stream on CBS/PARAMOUNT.
