You know, they do each episode in about a week so their ideas stay fresh and spontaneous. I mean, I get that some of their best work is done like that, but, conversely, so is all of their worst. I think I'd rather have them mix it up a bit and, if they really feel in their hearts it's not an up-to-par episode, they should just skip that week and focus on taking what they have and making it better for the following week. I mean, it's not like they've never taken breaks between episodes before, they can make excuses if they have to. Certainly makes the DVDs less worthwhile to buy if the episodes in that season aren't great. I think almost all of season 12 was probably their low point but after 13 and 14, they were back in their prime.
