“I liked how Maks was standing to the side, beaming with happiness for his pal Tony. Sweet!” —Johoallen

“With Tony smiling so much, we get to see his bright white teeth often! Hooray!” —Colleen

“Tom’s ‘and the space shuttle landed.’ And then, during a closeup of Shawn and Derek dancing, there was this weird spaceship-like leg taking up the upper corner of the shot.” —Kevin

“I didn’t get that shot, but doesn’t this one look like they’re headed back out to space?” —Fringe Fairy

“That huge piece of black duck tape over Apollo’s shirt made it looked like he was taped down to his chair during his conversation with Karina.” —MLM

“Loved Maks grooming Tom like he was a baby kitten.” —MLM, endorsed by Kevin M. Kawa

“Does Kirstie actually combing her hair this week count as a gem?” —MLM

“Kelly’s striped shirt matched the paint on the walls in the practice studio.” —kellen

“Were those white shoes Val was wearing in rehearsal? After Labor Day? (This fashion faux pas could have been forgiven had he been shirtless)” —MLM, endorsed by Kevin M. Kawa
