Perspective: As a student becoming a doctor of acupuncture and oriental
Medicine, and a former Portland resident: I would have found the scene in episode 5 funnier if the patient receiving acupuncture would have said something along the lines of " your style of music is actually pushing the needles out of my body rendering this treatment useless..." rather than what was scripted. For the body to automatically vacuum acupuncture needles in itself(without te acupuncturist manipulating the needles) an extremely increasing pleasant sensation must come about throughout the body. I found this scene extremely unbelievable and inappropriate in regard to mass media acupuncture exposure. I do have a strong sense of humor, and when it comes to media exposure of acupuncture I feel it is best to portray this humor through truths rather than an incompetent writer's imagination. The scene could have been funnier and more believable had an expert been advised.

but the needles being pushed out equates to less pain in the mind of most people (and most people do not use/understand theory of acupuncture. Needles being pushed further in is funnier. if writers went with your concept joke would not have been funny.
