    The entire concept of "Bastard Chef" had me laughing out loud.. was that Anthony Bourdain? Sounded like, but haven't checked.. anyway, the entire episode killed me.

    Yes, it was Anthony. Very funny episode, and the idea that Isis was hired so Mallory could get a reservation - priceless.

    Any episode that can make fun of reality TV, cast Anthony Bourdain in a perfect role, AND have Cheryl doing her hoity-toity voice again is hall-of-fame stuff for me. I thought it was the funniest episode of the season so far.

    PHRASING! About choked tonight laughing so hard. One of the funniest episodes of the season to me, from beginning to end we had so many great jokes; just every time they turned around jokes were moving so fast that it just laid me on the ground; Sterling's racial jokes were wildly offensive and yet killed me every time "How can you not already have that radio hooked up?" :) Everything about the vet "doctor" "Feline AIDS" "barn full of dead horses" The Helicopter exchange with the border patrol. Was dying tonight.

    This season has really been one for the books. I really look forward to it every week.

    The entire dog rescue had me rolling. Plus, the concept of Pam as a special agent. Since we missed covering last week's, it went really hand in hand with the entire building Rescue and reconsideration of Sterling there as a great special agent.

    Yep, lots of hearty laughs with this week's show. As crazy as he makes her, Lana and Sterling are such a hilarious duo.

    Pam kind of reminds me of Crystal from "Dad Like Me"

    I couldn't agree more. This has been one of the best seasons... funny as hell stuff.

    Tonight's Pope assassination storyline had some great moments.. Pam learning the language on the plane, the setup of who did it, the assumption that Isis would fail.. the first five minutes of "Jesus! Oh I hope he didn't hear that!" jokes.

    This season has been fantastic, some really great stuff. While this won't work with everyone, the jokes about "Lucy, Daughter of the Devil" really cracked me up since I loved that series (Vampire Altar boys as an episode is one of those things that kills me every time).

    They do this every so often in this series, but the animation style they use during chase scenes, etc. is really unique and I love the look of it, it's very different from almost anything else.

    "Get off the Pope!" I was roaring.

    They have just topped themselves. Being confronted with Captain Murphy in an underwater sealab who is holding the world hostage...

    Outside of that the entire storyline of trying to rip off Cheryl's fortune and Isis trying to ransom off a nuke, great stuff.

    Mallory will do simply anything for money, and that means anything. Always makes me guffaw.

    And we got two voice actors from Bob's Burgers Kristen Shaal and Eugene Mirman. And a great nickname, Heratio Cornblower.

    This entire setup kills me. This season we've had references to Lucy, Daughter of the Devil and now we get a set of episodes that take place on Sealab.

    The Sealab setup kills me too. If Dolphin Boy shows up, I will lose it!

    Not a lot of huge laughs, but several good ones. A lot of surprises though; Lana as pregnant is a hell of a bombshell going into the next season.
