brilliant
29 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

although i have been a fan of this show from the beginning, this particular episode stands out as nothing less than a simply wonderful homage to the wizard of oz. the writing was nothing less than brilliant as the episode developed. of course, by the end, it all tied together quite nicely.

i counted no less than 35 references (pretty good for a half hour show). some were so obscure that i'm not even sure if they were intentional,or or rather just coincidental. at the same time, i'm reasonably sure i probably missed some.i have the episode on tape, just so i can enjoy the episode again and again, as well as look for other "oz" references.

it only took a few minutes to catch on to the gist of the episode , as it used hints here and there . however, even if someone was somewhat "oblivious" to what they were doing, by the middle of the episode, only someone who had no clue about the wizard of oz wouldn't catch on.
