Season Best from an Already Great Season
6 March 2019 | by nbowler-83525See all my reviews

What can I say about this episode? It's one of their best. In a show already unique and with its own corner of the modern comedy market, this episode stands out as one of the most memorable of the series as a whole. I laughed so hard I about cried. The acting and the writing hit full stride as the gang performs the musical. It's sheer, raw, unapologetic brilliance. The song at the end has been stuck in my head for days.
