This episode in 5 words: The story arc was perfect.
Bret and Jemaine really outperformed themselves in this episode, which had excelling acting and writing when it came to the two. I found myself laughing so hard when they substituted glue for hair gel.
The song was not at par with the writing of the episode, but I'd still grade it at a B-.
Though one piece was a little weak: The Prime Minister/Secretary relationship. Far too simple/confusing and preventing me from giving it the perfect 10. This is the only part of the episode where I would agree with thefanof's criticism that it's like a SNL sketch extended beyond it's shelf life.
But I got to give props to Taika Waititi, in a season where the writing seems to go downhill, bringing a story arc like this is a refresh that is welcome to all dedicated FOTC fans.
And who wouldn't love that Mel FINALLY gained access to Bret and Jeamine's apartment. I was predicting it, and it finally happened this episode.
