Since Fox are re-airing “Brown Betty” tonight we thought it would be worth posting a “Brown Betty” replay thread in case anyone wants to discuss the episode for the first time, or re-submerge themselves in the haze.

Also, “Brown Betty” has been included in TV’s Best Musical Moments by the NY Daily News:
The sci-fi series has jumped on the musical bandwagon with a special episode featuring the main cast, including Joshua Jackson and Anna Torv, breaking into song and dance. Though the show’s subject matter is far from light, executive producer Jeff Pinkner managed to make the concept work by staging a musical inside the mind of the show’s mad scientist.
Thanks to Teddy for the heads-up.
