There's a great line in the movie High Fidelity about how, when making a mix tape, you have to start out strong, but then you have to kick it up a notch with the second song. That must be what goes into a great series, too. What the writers have done is commendable. With each line, we discover more about our, "equal opportunity criminal organization." For instance, it seems that Squatch is very devoted to his family (even if it's only because his wife can bench-press 160 pounds), Gary has slept with 73 women and impregnated many of them (umm, congrats?), and Rockefeller is a Fonz fan. It's brilliant, really, though so quickly paced, I had to keep pausing to write down everything I could want to quote - which was pretty much the whole freakin' thing. I want to know what kind of budget the Knights have for those t-shirts, which (according to the theme song) "ain't no cotton-poly blend." Let us count: We have the Knights of Prosperity t-shirts, the Jewish t-shirts (though they pilfered those, so I guess they don't count), and now the 31546 Pimp shirts. Gary was angry that Eugene spent $32 on a large blow-up of Mick Jagger, but I don't hear anyone complaining about the money spent on shirts. Not that I particularly want them to give up the shirts or anything; the Reservoir Dogs scene cracks me up every time they do it. How many great pickup lines did we hear tonight? Who could resist, "Um, hello, my name is Louis Plunk, and I would like to take you to dinner tonight"? Or this one, if you have children: "Hey, you want to make some more of those?" Of course, the best one was that which was used on Simone (or, as I prefer, Michelle from 24), by Rockefeller: - "Do fries go with that shake?" - "I'm sitting down." - "Well, suppose you were shaking, would fries go with it? I'm gonna bet they would." Despite the pickup attempts - seriously, how hard is it to get Sally Jesse to go out with you? - and the makeover that should have qualified him for Grease: You're the One That I Want, good-hearted Louis will have to keep that little light of his to himself for the time being. The Knights are about hope, and, to pull a page out of my 11th grade U.S. history class, upward mobility. Eugene wants to be the one "who puts the tangerine in the toilet, not the guy who's gotta take it out." Isn't that what we all want out of life? Well, maybe not that specifically, but you can see where I'm going with this. If you haven't already seen the music video for the theme song, performed by our very own Rockefeller Butts (Kevin Michael Richardson), I urge you to check it out at the KoP site. If you long for the days of great music, like the theme from Shaft, then I dedicate this song to you. Note: If you live in an area where the show was affected by the preemption, and your DVR didn't record it, rest assured that the episode will be available online at the same link as the music video.
