Very solid episode. Not as thick and visually startling as Pleasure, and not as intrinsically venturesome as Boats, but this episode delivered consistent laughs.
It felt like Steve had a ton of lines, moreso than all prior episodes. He cut just about everybody off any time he could get, and I have no complaints with that!
The only iffy point being Steve's long long long
walk up to the change machine in the casino. But within the fabric of the show I think it's some kind of forgiveable because I imagine Steve putting the show together, thinking it was a good idea, not cutting in post-production (assuming there is a post production that Denny helps him with!)
Glad to see Dough Prishpreed again. His voice is very nice, and this time he incorporated..choreography.
-Steve asking what's the shape of the snake letter.
-Steve descreetly blowing a kiss to Denny's Aunt. When he realized she didn't notice it he just kind of averted his eyes and aborted the advance.
-When Steve was talking to Rungell Bringer (Ronald Barker) and he mentioned his Uncle Gary and a little square graphic popped up for a while. Then some more dialog and the little Uncle Gary graphic came up again on accident very briefly. That effect just kills me. Tim and Eric used it once before in the Food episode, with the food pyramid.
-don't forgeeeet. I know card crountiiing
-Sour cream and onion chips, for your health.
Season two has been really wild. Steve has not made it to the "What have we learned?" segment physically unharmed yet. He is dedicated.
I gave the episode a 4/5.
oh, and the preview for Space...Steve using the telescope to spy on Jan in the shower. Wait til Wayne finds out.
Forecast for next week's epsiode: HORNY
PS: Just a trend I've noticed. Tim and Eric love using telescopes despite how cumbersome and frivolous they are. Telescopes find their way into a lot of Tim and Eric's stuff.
two examples (there are at least 4 more I can think of but I'm too lazy to make screencaps, mostly for the TGTTM ones):
