Wow, you just missed completely on this comment. Not only has this show been funny since it's very first episode, they are not rehashing or stretching scripts out at all. These episodes u speak of (second paintball & blanket fort) are odes to fans. They made those episodes for us because we lived paintball and we loved the blanket fort. It's called a running gag/joke/storyline, and they are for the fans who have been devoted to the show since day 1. Not only is this show the best comedy on network TV, it's only going to get better. It's been renewed for a 4th season, only 13 episodes, but if NBC cancels it, which would be redic, I guarantee a hulu or Netflix type company would pick it up. Just like Netflix is doing now with arrested development.
