I feel like we've been on the "Steve gets popular" train a lot during this series, but this one had enough fresh jokes to make me laugh a couple of times. Principal Louis cracking a mug over Steve's head and laughing like a maniac was just awesome. The talking cabbage was great, and a nice payday for H. Jon Benjamin.
Also LOVED the B-plot with Stan and Francine scaring the crap out of each other. The payoff with the new neighbor was great stuff.
I'll agree on the thumbs up. A few weeks ago when Steve tried to get laid, I wrote that I love those kind of Steve stories, and this was a win as well. I did think Steve and Snot's kiss was kind of odd.
The b-plot was the definition of "simple," yet it worked.
It was good for what it was. The Jewish farmer was an interesting move. H. Jon Benjamin is having a month, both Archer and Bob are renewed as well as more guest star spots. The Predator mask was a nice throw back to Roger's closet.
Was I the only one who was dumb enough to look up www.vincewasmolested.com only to find it doesn't exist? Good episode, though it wasn't as consistently funny as FG. Loved the bit with Steve getting hit with the coffee pot and the payoff later with Reshma, the girl he slapped to get decked by Principal Louis in the first place. The Stan/Francine surprise story started a bit slow and got good later on. And Roger stroking his finger under Steve's chin was weird, creepy, and funny all at the same time. Just one thing: was that kiss on the lips between Steve and Snot when they made up just a kiss or was that supposed to be more significant? It seemed to be out of place for two best friends; I would had thought a handshake or hug would had been good enough.
This was another good/great Pam/Jim episode. Two left in the year: Next week's Conflict Resolution, then the 40-minute season finale entitled Casino Night, in which (according to the NBC presser) "big gambles" are taken by the staff.
