Best. Episode. Ever
5 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

What made this episode for me was the ABBA soundtrack. As someone who listened to nothing but ABBA until age 10, it was not only a nice throwback but it made the episode completely hilarious. It just seemed to fit into the storyline so awkwardly perfectly (along with the occasional recitation from the dean's shopping list.

Not only that, after doing some research I realized this episode aired just days before the series premiere of The Walking Dead, and Jeff looks suspiciously like Rick in this episode... I noticed a few other parallels, but that one was pretty surprising considering the timeline of when the episodes came out.
