    Maron. I just want to say that your calls to Ray Ramano are hilarious even if they are not meant to be. The awkwardness of the phone calls is so palpable. I definitely think you should lose the number for awhile. Good luck!

    "You're in a haunted house of expectations you can never live up to." Good one, Marc; true.

    Great show. Harmon expressed what I've felt but hadn't identified: the "rapey" feeling when you have to explain and justify a creative process while you're in the middle of it. More than embarrassment; it feels like a strip search. (I don't get the dislike for "Big Bang Theory", though; it's not as sophisticated in its storytelling as "Community", but it's damn funny.)

    Great interview - I love Community, it's one four shows that constantly battle it out in my head for "Best sitcom on tv."

    Sadly I think what Dan said is true - my Parents watch Big Bang Theory, and Two and a Half-men and all those other lazy crapola shows. When I complain my dad just responds with "I don't want to have to think, I just want to watch it." Very sad.

    great show. i liked the depth and therapy talk. i want to hear what every guest talks with their therapist about. i think sharing wisdom is one of my favorite things about wtf

    I swear I'm only halfway through this, but this is way big on everything. Hits so many bases. It's beautiful, Dan's greatly explaining his grander theories and I really think this is amazing.

    great interview, though listening to Harmon made me nostalgic for my own relentlessly nice/passive agressive midwest upbringing...

    not to be too nerdy but did marc not really know the term bottle episode? i find it hard to believe someone as versed in the business wouldn't know that term.

    anyways if anyone hasn't watched community get on it. it is arguably the best comedy on tv right now.

    I started watching Community midway through the second season with the D&D episode. I became a fan, and the wife, who is rather picky about watching a new show in the middle of a season, became a fan as well.

    The show just keeps getting better and and better.

    Great interview as well. Marc, you need to get with Dan to somehow interview Chevy Chase somewhere down the road.

    This should be a greatest hits episode. Funny and deep. Made me want to start watching Community.

    A great show about someone with which whose work I was completely unfamiliar. Enjoyed the metaphor about "emotional connections were cut in an emergency"...

    Excellent episode, Dan Harmon is so introspective and he has such great insights into writing comedy
