Pretty sweet episode. It's nice to see Prairie get such a prominent role again. And they very lightly touched upon Rosita's dad being in the army; I didn't think they'd acknowledge those developments on the show.

Cute bit with James Corden too. Not often Grover's not the dumbest one in the room.

Okay, this whole "themed show" thing can work, but only if they actually adhere to that. "Star S'mores" having one brief moment involving a dad doesn't exactly mean it fits the theme. Same goes for when they used the Wizard of Oz spoof as part of their "opposites" theme when only one section pertained to that. Why not use the Clash of the Titans spoof, where Cookie's goal is to meet up with his father? Or, not use another format piece and find short segments/songs about dads or families in the library?

I felt like this episode was something of a throwback to 3832, where Prairie kept wanting Rosita to take pictures of her with her camera: doesn't take much for Prairie to hijack someone else's project(s). I liked the detail that Prairie's camera is a GoPro, as well as Slimey blinged out for his rap. Am I imagining things, or does it sound like Abby's voice was deeper in this episode?

This episode was very good. It was nice to see Prairie for the first time this season. Also it's nice to see Rosita's dad Ricardo for the first time on the show. Prairie's voice sounded so cute during the song. Slimey was hilarious. The bit with James Corden was funny. We finally met Mr. Noodle's other brother and also his dad. During the Smartie segment, they showed how some kids have two dads. That was pretty groundbreaking.

Yeah. I noticed that too. He seems to have wised up there.

Yeah. Steph really had a chance to shine as Prairie in this one.

Hm, it just occurred to me that Prairie might be one of the only characters that we don't know much about her family. Maybe that's the reason she hijacked Rosita's video, because her father isn't around.
