Another great episode recap! I agree about the pacing. I still enjoyed it overall, but it moved SO fast. It was exciting though, and I didn't mind the new characters -- perhaps a bit light on the characterization, but it's only one episode after all. It'll be interesting to see by the end of Episode 6 how developed the new people are compared to the characters from the comic. Or several seasons from now, if all goes well.
And nice use of the Twitter screen-cap. :)
It's really surreal to see Gilifranakis and Schwartzman standing there in the store I go to every week. Neat.
Also, it looks like the production folks put up alternate signage on the windows, with bold fonts and colors, while Tom and Amy don't normally have anything on the windows themselves -- just a nice sign hangin out front. Interesting. I'll definitely have to watch this episode at least, just to see if they did anythign else to change the place around...
