    After Murray arranges a photo session, Bret becomes self-conscious about his short-comings and Jemaine tries to compliment him.

    Yeah, the 'Bowie' parts were good. Also liked the parts with Murray and Mel's scene where she likes Bret better - funny stuff.

    Overall, I didn't like this episode as much as previous ones - the songs in this one weren't as catchy to me.

    I agree. Murray and Mel are great. The only song I liked in this episode was 'Bret you got it going on'.

    I really liked the scene with the guy who does the Apple computer ads who played the greeting card exec. Does anyone know his name?

    Did anyone see Arj Barker on 'Last Comic Standing'? He's quite funny.

    This weeks episode with the David Bowie stuff was my favorite part of the series so far. It has tended to be hit and miss, but i love those three David Bowie scenes,i would demand youtubage if i hadnt already found them(well, i can only find 2 of the 3 at the moment). "Am i freaking you out Bret?"

    That would be John Hodgman who can also be seen regularly on The Daily Show.

    This is probably my least favorite episode in the series so far, but that's not really saying much. Every episode has been hilarious.

    One of my favorite lines: "Wear the eye patch, Bret. Wear the funky funky eye patch."

    I'm really surprised that this episode has the lowest score thus far, I thought it was the funniest episode yet. Although the highest rated episode on this show, is my least favorite. Eh...

    Nvm I mean the second highest, (Mugged), Yoko was awesome.

    This episode was great overall but I wasn't a big fan of the "Bowie in Space" song. I liked the "Bret you got it going on" song much better. Excluding the songs though I thought this was really funny, especially Murray.

    Look closely at the magazine about 4 minutes into the episode, there is a Weird Al Yankovic photo on the cover. This might be a little homage or it was what they printed at the time of filming.

    Actually, I think that line is

    "The media monkeys and the junket junkies"

    I love this episode. Can't understand the hate for the Bowie song--it's hilarious, a dead-on parody of his musical style with some funny lines, and nice cheesy sci-fi costumes and sets.
