Trivia

In 1996, this episode was one of the series' very first to be released on home video by Rhino Entertainment. However, it was quickly recalled as the distribution rights to the movie itself had not been cleared properly. This episode has never been re-released, and the Rhino VHS remains a highly-valued rarity. See more »

One of the best...
15 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I personally find this particular episode to be one of the better, earlier episodes. The jokes are rapid-fire and almost always good. Plus, we get Joel! I know, Mike is great, too, I have zero complaints...but Joel was the first and gets just slightly higher marks for that.

Btw, Joel's last episode, Mitchell, is pretty darn good, too...I miss this show. A lot of the later episodes don't have the same giddy brilliance. Usually still good for a joke or two, but not nearly as inspired as a great many of these earlier episodes.

Try this one out if you're looking for an oldie, but brilliant-y.
