Committed - 3/1 - OUT OF ORDER EPISODE?

I have been pretty much hooked on this show since the first episode. Most of the episodes have been really good and I usually find myself laughing out loud alot of the jokes.

Tonight's episode bugged me because it appeared to me that it did not run in order of the other episodes. It seemed like this episode should have been the second or third episode. Marnie wanted her best friend to bond with Nate, yet they have all been hanging out for awhile now.

A few weeks ago there was the episode where they were talking about having sex in Nate's apartment. Then , the week later, it was supposedly the first time they had sex.

Did anybody else catch this?

I think it does matter because it throws the whole rhythm of the show off if you ask me.

Where did you find the information about order the episodes were filmed?

Definitely WAY out of order. NBC did the same thing to Father of the Pride, one of the last episodes they showed was CLEARLY supposed to be the first one shown

I do. With the state of sit-coms today, we don't need the networks making them any worse. Actually, I only half watched this episode (it was used to get away from the constant Blind Justice promos on ABC), but I noticed it seemed out of place too. It must drive the people who work on these shows crazy when the networks do this, they work to have some flow or progression between episodes and it all gets flushed down the toilet because some suit thinks airing episode 8 will get more ratings on a given night than episode 2.

We noticed it too. We had several episodes on TIVO and thought that maybe we had watched them out of order.
I don't think it ruined the show, but it did bug both of us.

Yeah I noticed that as well... they are all over the board with the episode order, but I don't mind all that much.

Luckily, they've caught up with themselves now:

1
4
3
6
5
7
8
9
10
11
2 ** this week **
12
13

Line of the night:

Clown (with laundry basket): "I'm doing polka dots, got anything?"

I have a feeling this show won't be renewed. I just can't stand the blond girl and her annoying voice.

There are several people at my office that really enjoy this show along with me. We were all cracking up today because we kept repeating the line the clown said regarding doing polka dots.... I was laughing out loud, especially when Marnie took off her bra and threw it in the basket.

I hope they pick this up for next season. If Joey is still on the air, then this show should be as well. I was a HUGE fan of Friends and I enjoyed watching Joey interact with the other cast members, but I just could not get into his show.

Anyways, I hope they keep this show on.

This show is great. I consistently laugh every week.

I hope it gets renewed...

... but they can leave Todd out.

As I look back on the episodes I didn't like that much and they all centered around him or his disability... so I should be disappointed in the next two.

This show is not up to the quality of Scrubs or AD, but it is still a pretty funny show. Definitely better than Joey.

Father of the pride was nowhere close to production order. And that's coming from your link

105
106
103
110
107
109
104
112
108
102 < The one Ted the bug was talking about
111

Unless i read that wrong, which i don't think i did.

Nope, you're wrong. Sarmoti moved in with Leo and Kate in the 10th episode that aired (Titled appropriately enough "Sarmoti Moves In"). In the previous 9 episodes that aired, he already lived with them. "Sarmoti Moves In" was clearly supposed to be the first episode aired. Check out the production numbers here:

The show needs more Todd. I find the interaction between him and Nate to be hilarious. Nate is in a no-win situation with the guy.
