Did anyone imagine this show reaching 100 episodes when it first started out with that horrible, horrible opening season?
Stan putting a bounty down to stop Haley and Jeff from getting married is exactly the kind of plot that I could dig, just because it was as good an excuse as any to bring in as much of the supporting cast as possible. Of course, that begs the question of "How does Stan even HAVE that much money laying around?", but whatever. (EDIT: After watching it a second time, I did see that plot point. Never mind.) What we got was a nice shout out (however brief) to some of the last 100 episodes, including another go with Wheels and the Legman and Reginald the CIA Koala fighting to the death with Deputy Director Bullock. And holy crap, did Principal Louis nearly steal the entire show, or what?
Thumbs up for the premier and thumbs up for the status quo shake-up with Haley and Jeff eloping. Although...why tack on the "Part 1" to the end of the episode name?

I think the part one was a joke in some weird way. I thought it was a pretty tight episode and the fight was awesome. Patrick Stewart continues to be my favorite voice actor in the Familyverse. The entire episode was great, but I missed how they went to 0 to 97 in the death category. Roger as the Cryptkeeper was nice.

Was there anyone of relevance on that bus? There was a clear shot of everyone when they boarded just before it went off the cliff, and I want to say some of those characters were familiar, but I don't recall explicitly.
You believe me, don't you? Please believe what I just said...
Boxofficemojo.com has Condemned finishing the weekend at about $4M, which I believe is actually quite a bit under what was projected (the projections I am finding look to be between $6M and $8M). It looks too much like a poor man's The Running Man to me.
