Talk-back/content discussion for English dubbed episode on Adult Swim starts on page 5.
Please post the discussions on the content of episode 60 here. This thread is declared as a Spoiler zone for the content of the first 60 episodes.
Please don't ask for links on where to watch this episode, raw or subbed. Discussions on 'where to watch' belong in Where/How to Watch FMA Series 2. Don't post screencaps unless highlighting something important about the content of the episode. Just like on in most area's of the board, avoid one line posts, spam of any kind or conversations between two members.
-Do not spam. -Add spoiler tags to spoilers -Do not go off topic -Do not fight
Spam means one line posts that contain little content. "OMG that ep was so cool" would be an example of spam. If you enjoyed the episode please specify what you enjoyed so much, was there anything you didn't like?
Spoilers mean anything you know will happen in upcoming episodes. Not everybody reads the manga and you may reveal something they didn't know. For future episode discussion, please go to the relevant topic. If you are unsure how to use spoiler tags, please ask.
Going off topic means discussing a characters actions outside of the episode, or talking about the artwork, or upcoming episodes etc. I know this can happen easily so don't be upset if I move your posts or guide you in the right direction. Double check the forum for the right place to take your post, or if required, start a new topic.
Everybody can voice their opinion, and nobody is correct just as nobody is incorrect. Because none of you will spam (right?) people will justify why they didn't like something. You are welcome to say "well I like that part because..." but you CAN NOT say "no you are wrong because..."

The gun was not in the manga I take it? My memory is a bit hazy.
The little we got from Scar vs. Bradley looks alright, nothing overly spectactular. But I remember feeling exactly the same when reading the manga. I was a bit let down at how unimpressive it was (the anime is definitely on par here at least, might even be a bit better). But then came the final stage, in which there were some serious epic moments. So my hopes lies with that Bones will follow the manga's path, and get the next part of the battle right. For now, this was okay, but nothing special.
Laphis Philosorum was a great choice for music, a trademark sort of song of Brotherhood and it felt very fitting. It's a bit sad and really dramatic, and since it was a while since we last heard it, it has even more effect. I even got a little nostalgic, because I started thinking of episode 1, where the song is heard for the very first time. But the 'Psycho' music I think could have been better for the 'swallowing' sequence rather than the track in use. We've heard that one more than a couple of times before, haven't we?
I've only watched the raw of this episode, so may have some more thoughts after having found a sub.
EDIT - More comments after having watched the sub. Not anything I didn't get without the subtitles though, but meh... just felt like commenting a little some more. Lulz.
- I loled at Father's "Are you gonna break my home again?" and all his weird sounds and expressions when he attacks/does stuff. I for one liked the gun. And I love the face makes when he asks "dudes, did you ever think about THAT??", with that one big ol' eye, when he talks about the gate. - Aww, Xiao Mei running after her hurt master :'( Brave but stupid Mei. - And Ed called her by name, a sign that things just took a turn for the graver. - Wow, that blood spurt is really... if I didn't know better, I'd think that Ed would have, if not died, as established that they won't kill him, at least lost some pounds of meat. - And then is the transmutation scene, which I've already commented on. I agree that it's a lot easier grasping what's going on with Father here than in the manga. But the manga showed Father going through the earth's gate down in his lair, before coming out on the other side in the sky, didn't it? Or am I mistaken?
I'll conclude by saying this episode was pretty great. The music was put to perfect use, animation was better than it's ever been, and it was full of general awesomeness.
