So what did everyone think? I thought it was brilliant, as usual. I just love Bret more and more every episode, he was terrific here! And Jemaine was just too darn adorable, as usual. You could tell he was totally trying not to laugh at the end when they were walking around with the painting. :lol:

Oh, and Hurt Feelings? Brilliant. I was squeeing with delight at the dancing. Well done, boys! :D :clap:

I thought it was a little uneven - not as good as last week's, but still many LOL moments. I Got Hurt Feelings didn't click with me, but I think I'm just out of touch with the stuff they were referencing in the video. The Cool Brets dance number was a great parody.

I admit I liked last week's episode better, but this was still chock full of belly laughs:

Doing a gig in a library, singing "Eminem is not very good, etc"

Murray saying he had several complaints about the noise, the guys complaining getting shushed, Murray suggesting they "make sounds so people can't hear you" :roll2:

Murray coming up with ridiculous rhymes - Texas/Lexus

Dissing the rappers - Murray talking about the guys dissing "Snoopy", Bret corrects him, saying Snoop Dogg, and Murray telling him, "I know he's a dog" :lol:

Hurt Feelings - We're vincible....tears of a rapper

Murray taking the ribbing of the Aussies in the elevator, his exit of the elevator :rolls: :roll2:

Mel's description of Bret's poster: "the shadowing on the crotch got out of hand"

Johnnyboy - I forget his name, but he used to be one of the voices on Jon Lovitz' cartoon, The Critic

Mr Li and the others as Jemaine gets home :roll2:

the Hurt Feelings reprise with Murray, Mel, Doug, and Greg

Stay Cool :thumb: Great number! We knew Bret and Jemaine could move well, but Rhys really did a good job dancing!!

I want screencaps of the poster with both guys on it to study the "shadowing"! :roll:

Not as good as last weeks, no...
I loved the return of Steve, and that Jemaine had been told that he looks like a llama.

I thought this week's episode was great. I loved the West Side Story song "Stay Cool". The dancing was great. Hurt feelings was pretty good too but it might be the kind of song that has to grow on me. I liked it when they reprised it and everyone sang it with Jemaine dressed up like Miss New Zealand. I got a kick of them dressed up like Biz Markie too.

Not as solid as last week, but still full of lots of great little moments that more than makes up for it. As someone who used to watch The O.C., I also got a kick out of the guy who was the head of the Australian consul (or whatever his position was supposed to be), as he was on the O.C., and even funnier is the fact that he's a kiwi in real life, not an Aussie.

I also loved Dave's fall. So simple, but still so funny to see quietly in the background.

The actor who played Johnnyboy has been in a bunch of Wes Anderson movies. His first name is Seymour, I think.

The actor playing the head of the Australian consulate also has a role on LOST. I can't remember his name at the moment (first name Alan I think) and I'm feeling too lazy to look it up right now.

Hey Shery. HBO is cool with allowing vidoes to be put on youtube.

I was at the computer right after the show last night looking those two up. I knew their faces but couldn't place the names. I love that Jim Gaffigan is on next week as Murray's best friend. That should be good.

The older guy is Seymour Cassel, he's been in tons of great shows, I just looked at his list and saw he was on a couple of Batman episodes. That's the orginal TV show- not the movies.
The other guy is Alan Dale. I recognized his face but couldn't place it. I don't watch Lost, the show I recall him from is Ugly Betty. Who knew he was a Kiwi?! His American accent is pretty darn good.

I could watch Stay Cool all day - what a funny sendup! :thumb:

Actually all three were great. I noticed in the Hurt Feelings reprise the intro was very similar to I'm Not Crying. :tears:

Oh, I forgot to mention: Ep3 is on HBO twice tonight, at 7:30 (I think on HBO2), and again at 9:00 on one of the other HBO stations. So nice to have something to watch on a bad tv night. :nod:

Hate to say I don't think I laughed once. The highlight was the Bret song and dance number. I don't know if it was coz it was the first time I watched it in HD but MY LORD Bret looked thin, like scary thin. Jemaine looked massively gorgeous, particularly in the apron :P and I was happy to see his skin tone returned to normal. For real, he was distractingly good looking and oi those jeans and the bum. Anyway, thanks Nancy I'm going to watch it twice again tonight and I'm sure it'll grow on me.

He plays Charles Widmore.

The guy who played Johnny boy was fantastic.

Just rewatched it not in HD - my goodness, I had no idea how much different HD looks from regular TV until now.

Laughed more this time.
