Did You Know?


The episode parodies "clip shows" which used to appear occasionally on older shows. To save money, the episode would consist mainly of reused footage from earlier episodes amid a small amount of new footage used as a framing device. In this episode, the joke is that all of the "clips" consist of completely new scenes which were filmed especially for the episode, thus undermining the money saving purpose of a clip show.

You know when a TV series has a episode that has highlights from the past season or series and the characters all talk about them? Well this was a creative spin on that!

As their building a diaphragm...again, things ensue and episodes in the past that we've seen are show but this time NEW material or clips are shown making it very enjoyable and laugh out loud funny! This episdoe once again reminds a viewer that this series will do what you love but do it better and different. It rewards its loyal fans that love the show and characters with episodes that continue to outdue each other. When will this genius land it just keeps firing on all cylinders!!

I almost lost it seeing Pierce Caw Caw and then take Abeds food! It was uplifting hearing Jeffs speech shown in all the different occurrences. Just keeps knocking them out of the park! 9/10
