Great episode, especially since there was so much Kristin Chenoweth in it.

Excellent episode and KC was just excellent... some very funny lines in this one. You could call the 'who dunnit' a mile away but it was a lot of fun.

Great episode, and I thought this line was hilarious:

Was Ned petting Digby with the guy's arm from last week?

Man, I absolutely love this show. Chi McBride is freakin' hilarious, and the whole cast just oozes with chemistry.

No doubt. This woman needs her own show. It would totally be about a character played by her, and they could even call it "Kristin".

Wait a minute...

My favorite Chi McBride moment was when the mother said she buried him with All the Gold, and he started to run to get up and she said "The horse".

Also loved the bit about talking to Olive's money.

Splendid episode. To turn a well worn phrase, if HD hadn't existed before Pushing Daisies, it would have been necessary to invent it. Eye candy to the fullest.

No kidding! I am so glad I have an HDTV to watch this on!

Even though there were a lot of really funny bits in this episode, my favorite moment was the scene with Ned and the aunt (Ellen Green) on her porch. Very tender and heartwarming.

My second favorite scene was Olive jumping up and down on her bed and then falling off.

So many great things about tonight's ep I don't know where to start.

The previews for the next ep in 2 weeks looks delicious.

The whole "jock-off" thing; the discrimination Emerson faced at the pub.

My favorite episode of the series yet!! Some great one-liners!

Chi McBride, Kristen Chenoweth

Olive looks WAY hotter with long hair. Her head doesn't look as big.

Yeah, with the short hair, she looks like a Team America marionette.

Kristin was on Craig Ferguson's show the other night with the short hair, and she was looking WAY hot! Maybe I just didn't notice the hair as much because of the very-lowcut mini-dress she had on. YIKES!

So, this is ABC's hottest new show and they're taking it off the air for a week? WHUH?

This was the best one yet - and since I was not completely happy with the 2nd and 3rd episodes, I'm really pleased to see this back on track. For me, what grounds the show and keeps it from floating away is Chi McBride.

I haven't caught this show in full, but I see zillions of previews for it.

What's it like? Is it a fantasy show?

That skinny blond girl sort of repulses me...who's with me?

That's the worst misspelling of "arouses" that I've ever seen.
