While there were some giggles in the work subplot I was like... The show is ending, don't introduce new things!

Is it just me or was this the most frank discussion of vaginal issues ever on TV?

I'd be surprised if there was another show that was more open about it.

Also, while the whole episode was a bit odd, I really liked seeing Megan Amram and Fred Armisen as cats. :)

I clapped when Riki Lindhome appeared!

I liked both the b-plots this week. I enjoyed White Josh's angst over Greg and Nathaniel's friendship. Also, "women - can't say adages about them anymore" made me giggle.

I feel very effectively pandered to and I’m delighted by it.

I felt like this was the worst episode of the show and one I would not let anyone else actually see if I was trying to sell them on it. It had its moments* here and there and I enjoyed Nathaniel and Greg's new friendship and White Josh's horror of it, but DEAR GOD THE CATS NOOOOOOOOOO. I haven't even seen Cats (I could this year but I refused) because I hear it has no plot and is annoying and while I enjoyed Rebecca's commentary on that**, just....argh nooooooooooo not for me noooooooooooooooooo.

Also, they referenced the Tony Awards/NPH twitter thing :-)

And the dog at the end was played by Jack Dolgen, musical consultant and staff writer on the show.

I enjoyed seeing this review in advance so I could set my expectations thusly. Wow, what a strange episode. As always, Father Brah was a highlight for me.
