  • Probably my least favourite episode from season one, but it still has some great moments.

    I'm not a big fan of this episode, despite it's very interesting concept. Solid hallucinations...I mean that's pretty out there.

    I don't really know why I don't like this episode. Perhaps it just didn't make me laugh as often as others.

    Still, the idea and the execution of the two title characters is well done, especially knowing the two actors auditioned for the show, and especially condsidering that the Confidence guy went on to star in the Dre Carey Show (he just doesn't look the same).

    There are some great moments and gags (Oxygen's for losers), but I definitely would not consider this episode amongst my all time favourites.
