Kitty and Zajac go out on the road together, while Emma is visited by both parents

We're up to the fourth episode of "Bossnow, and I don't have a lot to say about "Slip" that hasn't come up in our discussions of the previous three episodes. Kelsey Grammer's tremendous and the reason I keep tuning in, while certain other aspects (the sex, Kane's magical hitman, the symbolism-drenched monologues) frequently border on cartoonish (if not fall over into it).

Typical.
