Great episode, which in the US was in a block of programmes sponsored by Burger King. I love the subtlety with which they worked that into the programme.

Fox officials have said they will not decide the show's fate until May, when the network puts together its fall schedule.

Dear god, this weeks episode was amazing. The joke about reducing the housing order from 22 to 18 was a nice dig at Fox, as was the 'Family Guy' pop-up ads on the website.

Oh and Ben Stiller and Homer Simpson in the same episode? Genius.

I loved Tobias' fake moustache, and Tony "Did somebody say Wonder?!" Wonder's DVD titles: "Use Your Illusion", then "Use Your Illusion 2" (both Guns N Roses albums) and then "Use Your Allusion". I bet Dan Castellaneta has been waiting years to say "D'oh" differently.

How on Earth Mrs Featherbottom thought that umbrella-based entry was going to be successful, I don't know. I'm worried for Tobias' sanity. (I'm glad he tried though, 'cause it was hilarious.) I also love how Michael, normally such a nice guy, is completely unable to be nice to Ann, and thinks that everyone else must dislike her too.

Fox set up their own site to save the show, so it could be worth looking at.

I loved the Mary Poppins type entrance too. Also great was Franklin!

Gob: Franklin said some things that Whitey wasn't ready to hear.
Michael: Didn't you get severely beaten outside a nightclub in Torrance for that act?
Gob: Franklin said some things that African-Americany wasn't ready to hear, either.

Is it just me, or did George Michael drop the F-bomb in this week's episode? I know the word was meant to be 'plucked', but it didn't come off sounding like that.

DavidO Yeah, me and a few others were discussing that. It sounds so much like the F-word that it threw me off for a moment. He definately mis-pronounces the word 'Plucked' anyway, and it was a little telling that the camera cuts away when he says the word.

I also loved Ron Howards narration for this episode, he's genuinely under-rated I think....Sadly though there wasn't enough Zach Braff.

Another good 'un; sadly only one episode left this season.

I liked the intervention flashback, where Tobias danced around in his cut-offs (so as far as he was concerned he'd sort of stripped naked). And the label on Buster's medication: "Byron 'Buster' Bluth / Take three by mouth daily / For Hand pain (phantom)".

My favourite bit was when Buster knocked himself out with the coconut -- simple, but subtly played. Ron Howard was great this week too.

EDIT... And George Michael: "So, you can’t touch your cousin— my cousin."

EDIT#2... somebody at the-op.com supplied these two picture links. One is Zach Braff, and the other is apparently Joe Francis (creator of the "Girls Gone Wild" videos). Great casting!

Yet another fantastic episode. How on earth can this show's future be in doubt?

I don't think any other show can pack as many jokes into 20 minutes.

Gutted that next weeks is the last of the season.
It better not be the last ever.
