    What's unique about it is that he brings all those influences together in a way that's actually better than most of what other musicians are doing. So maybe he's not the best garage rocker... or the...

    I love the new season. The cameos are fun, the cast is engaged, and while it's not exactly the same as before, it's far from the final season of Scrubs or some such bad nonsense.
