    Pretty good premise for an episode. If it had a little more room to breathe, it would have been perfect.

    Really good episode: anything with Grover screwing things up as a major plot device gets extra points from me. The concern over Cookie eating Alan's birthday cake was very reminiscent of the 1991 special BIG BIRD'S BIRTHDAY, OR LET ME EAT CAKE. The running gag of Chris being chased by the octopus (that was Marty, wasn't it?) was humorous and very much in the Sesame spirit. Not to mention the running gag of Grover not figuring out how the instructions continued over onto the next page/chapter/volume until afterwards was amusing too. And, if you can believe it, I didn't even mind the conspicuous CGI security system either.

    The only other thing I could really comment on is the Crumby Pictures Hungry Games parody, mainly because I loved the jab they made at how they unnecessarily sequel everything these days. That, and Tick Tock reminded me of Belly from the Twilight parody -- this is why I love Crumby Pictures so much, they're wicked . . . wickedly accurate and funny.

    This was probably the funniest episode of the season yet. I loved how Grover just kept not noticing instructions until later. The song with Nick Jonas was cool and catchy.

    Just wanna remind everyone that this episode premieres on PBS this Monday. It's honestly the funniest episode of the season and I wanna hear what people think of it.

    I'm so sorry for triple posting, but I just want to remind everyone one last time that this episode premieres on PBS tomorrow.
