I thought they introduced him briefly last season - or was he just talking to him on the phone?

I wonder if this best friend is going to be as crude and obnoxious as Finchy? (Probably not, given that this is NBC)

I just want to be the first to say that I don't like Todd Packer as much as Finchy.

But Mrs. Nesbit, how could you know that? The episode hasn't even aired yet!

i just find that Todd packer is a pathetic attempt at recreating Finchy.

Me too. He doesn't have the emotional impact that Finchy did. Oh plus the camera cut too many times and I hate America.

Yeah, this episode is beautiful.

I've laughed nearly as much as I did watching the BBC episodes. This one was a classic.

If you ask me, they made a major blunder by not leading with that episode and promoting the crap out of it. That may have been the best one yet.

Fuck!

I tried recording this while I watched the damn amazing race and my VHS ran out of tape and I missed this! I lost the last 15 mins.

Please someone tell me they rerun this on CNBC or something!

That was out of control! The only thing that would have made that episode more nuts would have been if Steve-O had run in, tried to strangle Michael, and put his foot through a coffee table.

ETA: And I just told my mom to watch this week for the first time!

The boner line at the end was thrown in there perfectly.

An absolute hilarious episode. After a disappointing season opener, I'm quite pleased with tonight's showing.

I missed this. In fact, I didn't know it was coming. I'm surprised with the success of 40-Year-Old Virgin, they didn't plug this show that much.

double check the upcoming listings at Bravo
I saw on the guide that they re-ran the season premiers (last week's episodes) of The Office and My Name Is Earl

"What has two thumbs and hates Todd Packer?"

"This guy."



The story of how Mike watch Todd bone the twins at the motel made me laugh... was that a shout out to the 40YOV?

Trivia: I just love it when I see actors that were in (little known) movies together in the same show: In Out Cold, David Denman (Pam's boyfriend Roy) was Lance, the bartender, and David Koechner (Todd Packer) was Stumpy, the village idiot/handyman.

Brilliant. I thought this was up there with the basketball ep. Not sure which I would place on top, two way tie for best ep. ever.

Jim rocked in this episode.
