    We watched it last night and I thought it was hilarious! Really enjoyed this one.

    Leslie's range of merit badges, with Ann not in her element at all. And the kids were turning into a bunch of little Leslie's.

    My favorite part with Ben finally deciding to "Treat Himself" and then the next scene he was in the full Batman costume :D We couldn't stop laughing....it was just completely unexpected although entirely believable.

    Then there's Jerry whose cute daughter is now going out with Chris and Chris's awkward "full disclosure" with him. At least somebody's being nice to Jerry ;)

    Great ending with Leslie creating the new club for Ron for kids who were kinda like him. And his weak little smile saying how much he liked it.

    The only shame about a show that has had such a run of extended excellence is that there is not as much to talk about.

    This was a fantastic episode, same as nearly all of them over the past 3 years have been. :)

    One more thing. Jerry's daughter = hawt.

    Why the complaining..did Game of Thrones get canceled? :D

    Hope she comes back from some more needling of Chris to Jerry. That has some legs left.

    Brilliant episode, as always. One of, if not the most consistent shows on television. Phenomenal ensemble cast.

    Puppy party!

    I love the small touches, such as Ben snapping his cape as he walks away after resetting the router.

    I was watching an episode of Freaks and Geeks, when much to my surprise, a very young Rashida Jones shows up as Karen Scarfolli -- a friend of Kim Kelly's -- who is harassing/bullying Sam Weir and defacing his locker -- for which he ends up getting blamed for.
    Here she is on the left:

    That's awesome. A lot of talented people were involved in that show in one role or another.

    Wow.. I really have to watch that show on DVD.. I loved it, but have never seen the episodes that weren't aired (but are on DVD). I too knew there were tons of now-more-famous people in it. I remember thinking the D&D episode was cool.

    All the episodes did eventually air in 2000.

    Re-watched this last night - great quote by Ron at the beginning:

    "There will be no "internet pads"' - must be what Ron thinks iPad stands for.

    Ron's printed material to try to guide people is always gold.

    Isn't the girl in the middle the blonde friend in CougarTown now?
    Just checked IMDB (Busy Philipps) - yup!

    That's funny, I was thinking how the Cougar Town girl *hasn't* changed much in ~11 years, just from that picture. (epguides.com has one TBD episode for cougartown.. I thought it was cancelled?)

    I was thinking the same thing. They haven't changed at all! Except they both have better hair now. That early 80's hair wasn't doing them any favors.

    The new season of Cougartown starts up in November. There were rumors that they were going to change the name.
