Wow, what a great episode. The stars come out to the fundraiser, GOB accidentally works a day, Lindsey makes "chicken in chicken water", aka "poached salmonella". My favorite line had to be "No, HBO isn't going to work, it's Showtime!" I really hope that's going to work out, I can't handle this show going off the air. Another fantastic episode, with Andy Richter as another fantastic guest star (or 5).

I've never seen self-reference at that level in a TV show before.
While Buster's disturbing "Sister is my new mother, Mother. Is it me, or is she looking hotter?" made my skin crawl, I think my favorite line was when George Michael got Maeby to do his homework. Rob Howard: "It also gave him the chance to smell her neck." I'm less repulsed by cousin incest humor than brother-sister incest humor, I guess.
Note to Mitch Hurwitz: There is a tad too much incest on this show. Just a tad. If there's a full-on Bluth family orgy and Steve Holt *bleeps* Lucille, I might just have to tune that out.

I never got my 3-D glasses.
When Michael gave his speech at the end about how the Bluths were given so many changes, and maybe the Bluths didn't deserve to be saved, my heart sank just a little bit.
This might possibly be my favorite episode of the series, but ironically enough, if a new viewer did turn in for this episode, I couldn't see them tuning in for another one, because it was basically one half-hour long in-joke.

An overwhelming episode. And they went out with a big bang, as supposedly it's the last one that will air on Fox even though they've filmed four others. The HBO isn't going to want them, so I guess it's Showtime.

...or ABC. As soon as FOX lets them go. If FOX does that.
A magnificent episode. Above and beyond what we expect from conventional television. A death, a live show, 3-D, a website plug: all scathing references to cheap ratings-grubbing, and all done with aplomb and ridicule within a solid storyline. This episode was so good, it hurt; the fact that it might be last for a long time (or ever) hurt more.
Wait for the West Coast feed.
WEST COAST FEED LOVE SHOW!
