Did You Know?


There is no way Michael would not be aware of the cancellation of the Captain Astro comic book. Even if there were no publicity surrounding the death of a featured character, as the owner of a comic book shop he would have had to order inventory months in advance and would know there was no new issue coming.

Another flawless installment...
28 December 2007 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

"The first time you came here, you didn't know anything about me. I could have done anything to you." ~Brian

This was another great episode with some tensions rising between Lindsay and Melanie. They find a bunch of letters that manages to bring them closer together. Emmett has a couple hilarious moments with George, and Michael has some more amazing scenes with Ben. Debbie seems extremely troubled after she finds a dead body in the dumpster and nobody seems to care, and Michael is incredibly heartbroken when Captain Astro dies in his comic books. I loved the episode's ending, as it further elevated the Justin/Brian relationship. The little talk that Michael and Ben have towards the end about life being unpredictable was also something special.
