    Oh my gosh, I was dying laughing during that conversation about how Erlich could, well, if you've watched the episode, you know what I'm talking about, and if you haven't, I don't want to spoil it.

    Anyway, great way to end the season. Looking forward to how they proceed next year. Seeing Richard trying to manage an actual company with all of the day-to-day issues could create lots of comedy.

    And the bit with Zach Woods' character (can't remember his name) conducting research ... "Which one? Which one? Which one?" was hilarious.

    Great show.

    I think somehow they will find a way next season to get Monica more involved in the company day to day. It will be fun watching Richard fumble with all that is coming his way.

    So much for having one more scene with Christopher Evan Welch.

    I still say that he was supposed to be on the island but they were short one key actor.
    I hope they don't go with a whole season of "Peter Gregory says ..." and just replace the actor, but Mike Judge is saying he's irreplaceable.

    The dumbest techie thing is the repeated, "HE ERASED EVERYTHING!" These guys might want to talk to another startup about how to do off site backups.

    I could see Monica going independent and being a front to multiple venture capitalists now that they have got recognition and leaving Peter Gregory behind.

    I thought they would kill him off in a funny Mike Judge way.

    I loved how his new middle-out :)eek:) routine also solved his 3D video problem.

    I've inadvertently solved old problems many times with a fresh approach. Nice little bonuses!

    The diagrams were killing me. I also enjoyed "Which one? Which one? Which one?"

    Overall that episode made me laugh more than any of the previous ones...and I thought the previous ones were pretty funny :up:

    Great way to end this season. Much better show than I expected it to be. My older son who doesn't watch this show walked in just when they started drawing the ummm...stuff on the white board and started laughing with a "WTF are you watching?" comment! Which made us laugh even more. And the look on Richard's face when they were trying to figure it all out and he was having his breakthrough was priceless.

    I really like that they have well defined and developed characters here. I used to really hate the Erlich character and now he's one of my favorites. The geeky business nerd cracks me up too.

    I think that Monica is going to wind up "managing" Peter Gregory's company after they kill him off. If I were to predict, Richard is going to get MANY offers for financing, but is going to opt for what Monica has to offer because he's in love with her.

    Love the scene where Gilfoyle and Dinesh go to the other startup hinting they want a job with them, and the founder of the startup begs THEM for a job. That cracked me up.

    Isn't a little weird that Google entered a start-up contest?

    OMG, yes! I've had almost that exact discussion, looking to jump ship, realizing THEY are also looking to jump! :eek:

    My friends were having a discussion about how to manipulate di---er-I mean-data....:D:D:D

    I seriously LOled for real at that! Funniest line of the series for me...

    Also hilarious when Ehrlich introduced Richard to the crowd and then said, "I warmed them up for you..." yeah, whatever, dude! I love how deluded he is! :p;)

    And poor Richard....you just knew he was going outside at the end to throw up...he's a mess! :eek:

    Nice tribute at the end to Christopher Evan Welch. I am truly sorry we won't see his weirdness any longer... :( Can't wait to see what they do ...

    That was a great episode!

    I too hope they just "kill" the Peter Gregory character rather than do some "Peter says ...." one.

    I went into this ep thinking I'd drop the show...but this one was funny enough that I'll stay onboard.

    I've done demos like that where I'm fairly sure what I'm showing doesn't fully work and then it ends up going amazingly well.

    Yeah. Hooli didn't belong. They could claim that Hooli wasn't in the contest and was Gavin was just given a guest keynote spot.

    Or, doing a demo in front of your CEO and then internet goes down. :eek: GULP. Commence with the hand-waving...

    I've brought static screenshots of my demo along just in case...luckily never used them.
