OMG that was awesome. Not so much the episode itself, which was fine though, but the cinematic experience. I've seen people in academia talk about how cinema is a community experience, like theatre, and sometimes, yes, it is, when the movie does it right. And this movie? Did it SO DAMN RIGHT. It had some, let's call them framing devices right at the beginning which actually made you look at your neighbour and smile, as in, told you to do something that made sure you would laugh at each other. It broke the fourth wall, and in a very charming way - it reminded me of nothing so much as how Early Modern drama (very appropriate, heh) breaks the fourth wall especially in Prologues and Epilogues when the players as players address the audience. And this audience went with it. I have never seen an audience this friendly, responsive and engaged with the movie and each other. Good times.

Well done, show.
