    I love Joe Lo Truglio (and of course numerous others involved with this). Super excited.

    I seriously CANNOT WAIT for this show to be on my television screen.

  3. Joel Butts says:

    I don’t understand. How is it possible that this many years later, all of these people look virtually identical to how they looked the first time around with those costumes on? Love it! Can’t wait!

    Does Marguerite Moreau ever age? I mean honestly.

  5. Ryan Perkins says:

    I am so freaking excited about this. “What’s your glitch, Gene?”

  6. Anna says:

    The Ben/Susie (Bradley Cooper/Amy Poehler) duo kills me. So excited for this!
