Scott and Al just goofing it up in the first segment in always a delight.

Drew might be a new candidate for worst character accent ever.

Solid ep. I was cracking up when we found out that Crap's wife wants to be a magazine.

I started catching up on the old shows last year and the first time Scott had Al on the flutter in his voice he gets when he's nervous about a new, famous guest was as bad as I've heard it outside the last episode of UTU2TM?. A far cry from this chummy appearance. So, I guess my point is 'Hooray for friendship'.

Also, I always love Scott making himself the nitpicking acid test to an improvised character with an undercooked premise. Kate handled it well.

Loving the Scott/Al dynamic, this new season of the TV show should be good!

For anyone interested (Edit: apparently only in the US), you can watch the season premiere on YouTube or download it for free via iTunes.

Do I watch the CBB premiere now or wait for the sweet double feature later in the week? Decisions decisions.

Side note: Al did a great job with the theme, as expected. Really hope it ends up on that gorgeous More Al boxed set

Close to the chest is actually more common than close to the vest.

#Wellactually the data and most of the anecdotal replies at the linked page suggest that 'vest' is more common in the US.

Crap Pollo sounds like Bruce Lee doing an impersonation of Udo Kier.

Anyone else feel the disdain in Scott's voice about the 4th time he had to say "Shave Butter" during the DSC read?

Probably one of my favorite Al appearances, he and Scott's chemistry just keeps getting better.

I love whenever Tarver attempts an accent Scott just tries to point out he must be from the southern part or wherever the character comes from.

You know, I was listening to Reggie's version of the theme song and I think Scott might be right about the "dings" being added in. Although I don't know why Weirdo Al wood forget that part.
