I agree with everything you said, k. I was very surprised with Rhys' choice.
I'd even rather he submit "The Actor" - better range of acting for him, what with his record company phone call, "the code" scene, after "Frodo" at the car, etc. "What Goes On Tour" was also a triumph for him.
Schaal is definitely hysterical drooling over Bret in the bathroom. Good choice.
As far as the guys' choices, I again think you're right:
"Mugged" or even "Sally" for Jemaine, "Bret Gives Up the Dream" for Bret, or "The Third Conchord". What made me fall for the guys in the first place was Bret's general cuteness and Jemaine's poor soul look (and his eyebrows
and lips, of course ) at Dave's party, so I have a soft spot for "Sally".
Can't we get hold of Rhys and ask him to rethink his submission?
I must say your last line sums it up exactly - they've got 12 hysterical episodes to pick from, which makes it very hard indeed!
