Listening right now. The first 2 scenes prominently feature a character named Ron. I now hope all of them do.

The Atlantis scene is so top notch it's ridiculous. Slightly disappointed that the porta potty sushi sketch didn't make it though. Or was it even in the running? I don't know how these work.

Great selection! Loved all of these scenes the first time around. That Atlantis sketch tickled me so much that I've re-listened to it at least ten times, and the song is great!

What I love about Best Ofs is that they remind me of other sketches I love, and now I'm going to go back and listen to the NASA/Real Doll sketch.

Such a stacked episode. The David Bazan one I think may go down as the best episode ever. Not just for the insanely brilliant scenes, but for the beautiful music.
The Animals and Atlantis sketches are just on another level. I don't think there's another sketch show out there on TV or otherwise that can put together a compilation as tight as this one.

I don't think I ever listened to the other best ofs but this was fun...Reminded that it'd be great to hear Zach Woods again but he does seem rather busy on the televisor. His immediate decimation of the poor intern is truly a classic...

The scene when Jessica St. Clair is describing Mantzoukas freaking out (even though he actually wasn't) during 9-11 is one of the funniest things ever, I just love their back and forth.

The moment where Thomas hands Eric the Wikipedia description of The Blacklist during that scene is one of my favorite moments in the history of the show
