New Zealand likes to rock the party
9 June 2008 | by itamarscomixSee all my reviews

A brilliant episode, and one of the best in the first season of FOTC. As far as plot and acting go, it's far stronger than the first episode, and Bret really delivers for the first time, completely dominating the episode. The musical numbers are not quite as strong as in the first one, but 'Inner City Pressure' is still one of their catchiest and funniest, though weirdest, tracks; 'Boom' is somewhat weird too but it grows on you, and the music video is one of the best in the series; and of course this is the first appearance of the recurring 'Who Likes to Rock the Party'. The episode also introduces Sutton Foster for the first time as Coko. Fantastic comedy.
