I got in from work today, flicked on the TV and this episode was just starting. I was planning on making something to eat, but this was too funny. The situation never went too far over the top to make it silly - which is one of the reasons I like this show. They can take a joke so far, then stop it before it gets stupid.
I can relate to Doug, because I am so much like him (or so my wife tells me) and some of the things he says were just great.
The Art sub-plot was a tad weak and predictable, but the pay-off at the end of the episode with Carrie on the kart means I can forgive them.
