And then the same thing happened during the ending, which featured a kick-ass song I want to learn all the words to IMMEDIATELY and sing in the communal showers at my college dorm, and an utterly fantastic montage of all the characters and villains and events and ... *SQUEES*
I just ... it's a great show, it's been years, and ... and I've MET HIM now. He hugged me. Like, several times. He thanked me for being a fan. I started crying.
So I'm glad I fell a little behind on his reviews, because watching his 200th episode now, after having met him and gotten hugged by him and cried a bit at him ... it had more of an impact. I don't know how to explain that.
Now excuse me, I'm off to see if there's an MP3 of that song somewhere I can buy ... so I can put it on my iPod for work tomorrow. It'll make sanding boards for three hours way more bearable.
