    This is one of the best episodes BA has done since I've been watching. So entertaining, I laughed out loud dozens of times and actually learned something too. I think Samin needs to come back and make the rounds, do an episode with Carla and maybe even help Claire do one of her creations. And of course come back and do another It's Alive episode. This is golden, I need to save this one to come back to on a bad day.

    20:55 - It's my understanding that a clip like this usually costs around $80 to get the commercial rights. I'm somewhat jealous that someone's working with a budget where that's like, "This would be a funny cutaway, let's buy it!"
