This episode didn't do it for me. It's all over the place and just not.... funny.

The fully animated part felt like it would've been more at home for some online-only bonus. I liked the addition of the animation to the live-action sequences. Overall, though, it kind of missed its mark. I don't really think trying to show what drug trips are like on TV shows ever works, though.

Also, killing pets isn't funny to me and that seemed like such a weird place to go.

The main thing that I liked in this episode was Alana being human about Lincoln and their relationship. Just giving in and mourning the loss of him without wanting to be his girlfriend was a good moment for that character. I feel like Alana doesn't always get to have human feelings about her partners. Abbi is still her truest love though.

Hated the pet death, and I hate that Abbi got fired. I was hoping she'd get to evolve a little professionally.

I admire the effort put into it, but I second it didn't work as well as they were probably expecting.
