You know, I probably would have voted with Squatch. I'm one of those who tends to believe that, "25 large in the hand is worth all the stuff in Mick Jagger's apartment in the bush." But that's why I'm not the leader of the Knights and the reason that if it were up to me, not only would the show have ended after four episodes, but we would have been stuck with a case full of Donald Trump dollars. And then you all probably would have killed me. On Wednesdays, I also watch Friday Night Lights, which rips out my heart, slams it to the floor and then runs tackle drills over it. So this show is just the perfect recovery from that. The line that almost killed me with laughter (and that took me three deliriously happy rewinds because of that to get right) was supplied early on by Louis: "Question - should the vote to decide if it should be unanimous or a majority be unanimous or a majority?" I think we've all been in a similar situation, or maybe just those of us who sang a cappella in college. Every week my favorite character changes, and this week, I think it has to be Squatch. I just feel for the guy. He wants to do right by his family and actually has a plan for improving his life - unlike Eugene, who has dreams and a lot of words, but aside from opening a bar, doesn't seem to have an idea of how to better himself. But the fact that all of these criminal characters are so honest (with each other, if not with the world) just makes them more sympathetic. As I mentioned before, the whole show's commitment to the world of mediocrity is stupendous. Danny Ocean and his crew go to Las Vegas, the Knights to Atlantic City. Louis sings the Miss America theme song dressed in a "sanitized for your protection" sash from the bathroom. The quick references to M. Night Shyamalan movies, Urban Cowboy, Michael Dukakis, Deal or No Deal and Mr. Toad's Wild Ride (defunct as of 1998) come at you quickly. Hey, it took me nearly 45 minutes to get through a 22-minute episode, so if you don't pay attention, you're going to miss them. It's a sitcom that encourages close watching, and rewards the nine of us who are watching it in benjamins of laughter. Finally, I'm going to quickly plug this week's Q&A with Sofia Vergara, and I'd like to present some of the (more) inspired lines of the night: - "What do you think? Squatch was abducted by aliens, while simultaneously, by pure coincidence, the case was also abducted by aliens? Aliens that resemble cases? Or could it simply be that he stole the case?" - "But I'm a geeky college kid, and you're some Italian guy." - "What is your greatest weakness?" - "Fried food?" - "First I will hire a butler. Then I will hire a second butler. Then I will order them to kickbox." show less
