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.

Tell your friends!

Does this ending top the "Illusion" ending? We still have to do the West Coast feed, guys.

I thought they couldn't possibly top the "Bob Loblaw law blog" joke. More fool me.

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!

Waiting...

Tomas Alfredson's adaptation of the classic John le Carré novel has had its release in the US pushed back until December, in order to keep it fresh for Oscar contention. Over here in the UK, though, it's released tomorrow.
