I know this might not be the biggest news but damn, I loved that opening theme song. It is one of the only ones that I still get excited about whenever I hear it. And with all the shows these days using already famous songs as themes its nice to think back when some were original. I don't know if I am not the only one who cares, but being a fan of the show this hurts.
I have to ask ... Was this episode an indictment against the movie itself, or against all of the overreacting fans bitching about the movie (like it was the worst thing that's ever happened in the history of the world)?
