While this had the potential to veer into Very Special Episode territory, I was very impressed with how they pulled it off. I thought making Roman confront the truth about his fanbase was a nice touch. Offerman was horrifyingly delightful, and I nearly did a spit-take with the heil-five.

So glad this show is back.

Agreed. It nicely balanced the practical realities of the situation with the ideological ones. I think I'm enjoying this go-round of the show more than the original.

This is such a small moment, but it was nice to see Henry's students watching and being impressed by 'Are we having fun yet?' right at the end. He's endured it as tedium for so long! To have it recast as something exciting and impressive was really sweet.
