    I was hoping it was a vidcap of Catalina bending over while playing pool, but that one was good as well. :up:

    Timothy Olyphant and the whole toe sucking thing was a little weird.

    One of my favorite parts was the excruciatingly bad "bald wig" Timothy Olyphant was wearing for the second half of the show :)

    Catalina: My mother's dead
    Randy: I'm sorry
    Catalina: It's ok, it was either her or me...

    Classic!

    THAT's who that was!

    Who played his brother?


    I loved Joy in this episode! "Hey stupids, what ya doing? Something stupid probably." (or something to that effect)

    Joy plays a good drunk that is for sure! I really liked this episode. I loved that Carl hit Earl with the gun safe.

    I was drinking some water when the dad said "well your mom can fit in a size 4 dress but I'm not taking her out in it," I almost choked!

    Loved the fake sex scenes with Joy and Randy. I was so shocked when they actually showed Joy going down on him. I was wondering if NBC would get fined for it. But alas, I was tricked! Kudos to the writers and director.

    It was "Hey Dummies. What you guys prolly sitin here sayin stupid stuff, doin stupid stuff." It was the delivery of the line that was so perfect. She slurred and laugh just like a drunk person.

    In HD on the closeups you could really make out the texture of the latex(?) and even see the boundary where the fake bald cap ended and the skin began.

    I realize that in this case they probably were deliberately going for comic effect over realism, but I wonder if the HD tech is posing actual challenges for make-up artists (and set designers, for that matter)....

    "Do I look like an owl to you?" Uhhhhh.... yeah, he sorta does. I'm sure that wasn't just a coincidence. :)

    Yes, it is. Wardrobe people too.

    Basically everything has to be scrutinized a lot closer now thanks to HD.

    And many celebs hate it because their flaws are that much easier to see now.

    The scene's with Earl and his Dad often get to me, when Earl looked in the cabinet where the car parts were stored I lost it.

    Yeah, I have HD. I didn't even think of that but you're right, it definitely would be more noticeable in HD than SD.
