The video of Richard is even better. His body language is hilarious.
I know I won't be very popular but I have not "nor will I" ever like RL.
I'm glad Jimmy got to meet his hero. I hope he has no regrets.
I really didn't like Richard Lewis either until Curb Your Enthusiasm came out. The episode that Lewis mentioned on NNF where he and Larry help the blind guy move instantly converted me. His appearance here on NNF just cemented the fact that I was a dummy before. My favorite episode of the season so far. My only complaint is that I wish there was no intro from Jimmy explaining the episode because that had me kinda nervous that I was going to hate the episode for the first 15 minutes or so. How many times can I say the word episode?
I obviously have nothing interesting to add to this conversation.
One of the best eps ever (thanks, Darryl). Also one of the most unnecessary preambles ever, because: (A) it should be clear to anyone who knows Richard Lewis's comedy that that was the only way that episode was going to break, conscious decision or otherwise; and (B) it was fucking hilarious, and this was apparent to anyone for whom hilarity is their thing. In other words, no explanation needed, Jimmy. We get it. (I hope)
And I realize I say this every season, but great season, guys -- Levin, Sweeney, Braunger, Kaplan, great new additions, and now, Lewis.
The fawning ends here.
As Jon Wurster tweets excerpts from Peter Criss' autobiography, I would love to hear Jimmy's take on the book.

Wurster posted a pic of the page about having sex nine times and then using the bidet because some of his followers thought he was making it up: https://twitter.com/jonwurster/statu...553664/photo/1
Episode 1118 - 10.22.12
Teachable moments with Laura House.
Please notify Mr. Pardo immediately:
(I get that Laura has found her own way through this stuff and it helps her a lot. I still think TM is funny/possibly dangerous.)
It's nice that you think TM is "possibly dangerous," but where in the podcast did you hear Laura say that she practices or teaches TM?
Transcendental Meditation is an actual, specific, trademarked and vaguely culty VERSION of Vedic meditation, as seen in your video. Nowhere on Laura's web site is there any mention of TM or link to any TM products or institutions, so I'm going to guess that she's involved with one of the more "traditional" versions of Vedic meditation and that you needn't worry your little head about it.
There was talk of it. Relax.

I don't have a timecode but Matt's impression of getting a pot roast as response to a letter should be in the open: "THIS IS WEIRD!"
PS I am almost 100% caught up since lagging around the time my twins were born (March) and the run of episodes has been legendary. Really great stuff, and it means something since I thought a lot of seasons 6-10 were garbage. Just kidding, I have no memory of them. I only remember the live episodes I've attended (2).
