Halloween episode to boot which normally kick starts the main plot of the season.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Fun episode. I enjoyed it.

Now, it would be nice to have an episode that isn't a set of seven two-minute vignettes.

ETA:

I was amused by how transparently Annie's story stood in for how she views Jeff, Britta, and herself -- Jeff as this selfish creature who wants to consume her, she not being willing to fully admit her own attraction to him, her self-image as this person who can "change" him, Britta as being weak for "giving in" to Jeff, and her own inner rage issues.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

^ Yeah that was the point of Annie's story though it was really a metaphor (right term?) for how she sees the three of them. This was an okay episode. No where near the awesomeness of last season's zombie episode. I suppose one could look at this episode as a character study episode. I'm not too sure what we'll see come out of this. This has been a weird season so far and I'm not sure why I feel that way. Allison Brie was smoking hot in this episode...and I'm getting of Brita's antics.

Right there with ya, pal! I didn't even know about this show until io9 posted about the Firefly shout-out in the LeVar Burton episode; then I went back and got all the episodes from the beginning.
Now I'm obssessed, and I'm watching the whole thing from the beginning again.
Infinite replay value, this show has!

Heh, between Jeff's fake accent (or attempt at fake accent) and Beavis' own fake vampire-wannabe accent on the new Beavis and Butthead I was LMAO all night.

I loved Shirley's story though, at first I thought it was a "The Stand" parody but was something else.

I think I actually preferred this one to the zombie episode. While it was a good parody, it just wasn't as funny as this episode was.

Agreed. Really, the only problem I have with "Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps" is that we literally saw the same basic format two weeks ago in "Remedial Chaos Theory:" A single framing story to set it up, and six or seven 2- to 3-minute vignettes, a short epilogue, and a credits sequence that calls back to one of the vignettes.

I like this new format -- it was something we'd never seen before two weeks ago. But I think they should have waited a long while before using it again.
