    This episode made me feel like a child watching her parents trying to keep it together in face of their pending divorce.

    This was a great episode, as always, but I’m SO STOKED ABOUT THE NEXT ONE!

    As I work on catching up through the episodes, I skipped ahead to this one because I’ve been meaning to rewatch Final Destination anyway. This has probably been my least favorite episode. Aside from the painful skit, it seemed like you couldn’t find enough to talk about in the movie and instead had to talk about vaguely peripheral politics. Considering the extensive cultural impact this movie has had, it deserves better.

    The best part was when something started hissing with about 20 minutes left in the show and I freaked out because I thought there was a snake in the car. At least it woke me up.
