Okay, to put it simply, the episode it entertaining. But it's not really a special episode more than it is a cut-and-paste from the existing episodes. It makes sense as a pilot episode, however, and as an introductory it is very good. However it just seems repetitive when you watch the series, making it annoying to sit through the same episodes again when you're expecting something new, as all scenes from this episode are present in the series.

nothing here that you wont end up seeing it you watch the actual show, might serve to make you not want to watch the series if you see this first also cause you'll know whats going to happen already and have to watch the same stuff again...
one of the funniest shows I've seen in years (with awesome music :)
the live action movie was great too!
