In the first ep I thought Bret's face looked fuller and his arms meatier. In the recent ep he looked normal to me and extra thin in HD. These eps weren't filmed in order though. I believe the New Cup was the first one they filmed, at least it was the first one we saw pics of them filming in August. Jemaine's hair was longer in that one and The Tough Brets than it was in A Good Opportunity.

I thought that Bret was looking a little meatier this season as opposed to last season. His arms and chest area looked bigger and his face looks a little fuller. Maybe I am just imagining it. I have a regular tv not HD.


Oh yeah....thanks for that! My rememberer seems to have quit for the day too. lol

I don't know what he does, but in person, he isn't that small. He was taller than I expected but is just slim. The way they are dressing him on the show really makes him look smaller. He also hunches over alot.

This is the sort of stuff I love to find on the fourth or fifth viewing: When Dave says Mr and Mrs Li are in Taiwan to see their son Phang, who's in Dental School.
I'm a sucker for a good pun! :roll2:

I'm surprised no one mentioned this yet. I had a good chuckle during the reprise of "Hurt Feelings" with Murray and Mel since it's a parody of a sequence in the movie "Magnolia." They went all super wide screen and the lightning and color looked just like it.

I'll have to get my parents to translate what Mr. Lee said.

I noticed the wide screen, but I didn't get the Magnolia parody. It's so good to have so many sets of eyes picking up different things. :nod:

I just had my mother listen to the parts with Mr. Lee, he's muttering too much for comprehension.

I love both Mr and Mrs Li! She's so cute in Stay Cool, and I love when Mr Li is saying Bret has a kind face. So sweet!

He's 6 foot, which is tall, but it's relative coz he didn't seem tall to me. Apparently, there are only about 2 inches difference between him and Jemaine but Jemaine seemed much bigger.

He was taller than I expected, but shorter than Jemaine. Both were adorable!

I just caught this episode last night -- missed it because my brother, his wife, and kids were visiting from out of town. (And as an aside, I tried to avoid spoilers until I could watch the show. Which meant I didn't visit this site. Which meant I TOTALLY MISSED OUT on the tour information. Argh! I still managed to get tickets, though I'll have to go to Philly. This is the last time I abstain from FOTC, spoilers be damned.)

So anyhoo, I really thought this episode was the best so far. Thought it was a great example of what the series could be, now that their old material is virtually all used up. Songs really supporting the plot, rather than plot written to accomodate pre-existing songs.

I loved the poster in the Aussie consulate: "If you don't go to Australia, you're a bloody idiot."

OK, when Jemaine opens the cupboard and Mr. Lee slaps him and is hiding in there I though I was going to totally lose it. That was freaking HILARIOUS!

But I was just wondering if anyone wanted to start a gang....
