Loved the subtle "24" reference by Alex tonight.

Was I hearing things, or did Alex suggest that they should call CTU to help find Chase?

Edit: I see dave94 just beat me to it.

Yeah the 24 reference was awesome.

Wasn't feeling the Max story, but Penny was great. "Oh you guys don't do the pile on?"

Is it me or was this like the first episode where you're basically left with the impression that we really shouldn't like any of these people?

They were all like really crappy to each other and everyone else this episode like I've never seen. Penny especially.

yeah - it's like this was their "Always Sunny" episode. Nobody likes them.

I really liked the Penny storyline. So often in sitcoms, a new boyfriend/girlfriend is introduced, and they immediately start spending all of their time with "the group". Don't these people have friends of their own? I haven't seen it addressed in other sitcoms.



"Say thank you to the nice ladies."

"Thank you, nice ladies..."

I LOVED last season, but I'm just not getting into this season. Like Waynes seems to be trying WAY too hard every episode. Everything seems more forced now, instead of just flowing like last year

Penny's storyline was absolutely inspired. How often have people watched shows like this and said to themselves, "Why aren't my friends more like that?" I think this addressed that perfectly.

I was hoping for a little more from MPG, especially after his appearance on Don't Trust The Bitch in Apartment 23.

The last season of scrubs was way way better. I miss Cole.
