And thanks for this! I just caught up on this show (you know, right when the season ended!) and I love it.

I couldn't find caps of "Accidental Occidental" but I have on my already-being-compied list of "101 More Reasons" which I'll put up when the DVDs are announced :)

pearl_o pointed me here when I complained there were no more episodes, and THIS IS SO AWESOME I CANNOT EVEN SAY.
ljc: the middleman (trout)taraljc on 17th March 2009 22:09 (UTC)
There will be "101 More Reasons", soon as I a) have them all and b) have DVD artwork/streetdate/amazon link. I already have at least 25 I left out the first time, and then I need to come up with the rest, or throw it open to middlefan to help. But "TROUT!" still breaks me, every time I go back.

Have you listened to all the podcasts with the writers? Those are good for withdrawl.
mneiaimneiai on 4th August 2009 21:14 (UTC)
All of that was true! Though, the fact the universe needs this list is sad. So sad.

This post is amazing!
ljc: the middleman (book)taraljc on 12th March 2010 21:11 (UTC)
I meant to do another one for the DVD release, putting in all the stuff I left out, but I got crunched for time... *sadface*
