So... all the gadgets Joel uses in the various invention exchanges are props from his stand up comedy routine. He was actually pretty good, like a funny version of Carrot-top or Gallagher

There is a certain group or singular person that wrote that. What were they doing that night and why did that part of the brain say, "Hey this is a great idea"

To top it off lets end it with a little bird is the word

So the kid is a med student and he doesn't think to take a pulse or try to resuscitate his landlady when he finds her? He just assumes she dead, even though she's clearly still breathing when he enters the room.

I'm no expert, but would a person EVER be allowed to stay at a crime scene, even after the body was removed? I just can't imagine that he would have been left there.

Anybody else wonder about those junk yard cats eating the hand? Was that a way of introducing a sequel? And they showed the cat in Mrs Hodgekiss' larder sniffing the glove. Don't think there ever was The Crawling Paw though. But seriously, about the ending...was the moment the hand died and Paul's swoon connected? That was the moment he was freed from the hands influence, right?

Another gem from S1 that I nearly forgot about. :o Who could say no to the Mr. Fantastic invention, Alan Hale, Jr., the world's stupidest delivery guys, AND heroic junkyard cats? Certainly not me.

Also, at 00:12:05, Joel quotes a Tin Pan Alley song that, per Wikipedia, had lyrics by one Red... Hodgson. o_0 You don't think...?

Nah.
