We learned that ants are sour. I wonder how the writers knew that?
lol i was thinking 'OMG, ED IS RIGHT ANTS ARE SOUR!' ants are actually disgusting they taste like sourly sharp salt. (I know this because at a friends bday party we played a game that involved eating bugs, by the time I'd got eliminated i had to eat my fair share of ants, worms and crickets XD the ants were by far the worse) maybe the writers had a similar experiance XD people must eat them in some countries, the ants we had were ants for flavouring food lol

Wow I definitely never went to bday parties like that when I was a kid! We usually just ate pizza and cake.

*cringe* People have actually EATEN ants!? xD And whoa, a whole large scorpion? But wouldn't their stinger kill the person? o_o I mean aren't they supposed to be dangerous? And weren't people getting sick? That's the craziest thing I've ever heard somebody do a birthday party that it's nearly unbelievable...
anyway getting off-topic. About those who were complaining about 'too much angst' take a look at the first FMA anime. That entire show was so angst-ridden that it was worse than this and you're complaining about a small bit of angst? C'mon now. I didn't see anything wrong with it in particular at all.

"Those complaining" would be me. (And another voice of dissent somewhere in this thread, IIRC ^__^ ) And I don't like the first FMA anime, not that I see how the amount of angst there relates to... well, anything. I remain irked by how the angst was dealt with in this episode, just as most others are fine with it; opinions vary, as they tend to do. That's all.

At least Mason's in the previews...It was weird that they took him out, but I guess it wasn't pivotal that he be introduced in this particular episode. They were able to pull it off, though sometimes I wish they'd just do it right from the manga to prove the epicness of it to the world
I didn't have much of a problem with the episode because they showed some of this stuff before anyhow, and it was still a nice introduction to Izumi, even though stuff was cut and it was moving on fastforward. Ed and Al are so cute when they're little that I freak out everytime they're on the screen, and the scene at the end when they asked for her to forgive them was *tear* really nice...

So.. the first time I ever saw this episode (i watched this ep of brotherhood before the manga or first anime) I got teary at the end. Since then, I've watched it several times and gotten sad, but not like the first time. Hearing it in english now, I got teary at the end.
It's funny, if a stranger were to walk into my room and see me all teary eyed watching a "cartoon" they'd think I was crazy.
