I know there was another thread, but I figured I'd make one that's a little more official. Since this show probably doesn't have many people on the board that watch it I'll bump this one every Thursday for us to post in.

I'm really surprised at how good this show is. When it first started out, I didn't think they'd be able to keep the premise interesting, but they've done a fantastic job. I liked last week's episode, but this one was much better.

The bedroom scene was too funny. I love how much everyone hates Rafi.

Andre has to be happy, didn't they all hate him last season? Now they can focus on rafi.

This continues to be one of the funniest shows on television. Tonights was great, arguably better than last weeks in my opinion (the big Vegas trip and Ochocinco appearance just seemed outside of the humor the show normally does).

Nadine Velazquez looks even better here than she did on My Name Is Earl.

They never hated him, he was just always the butt of their jokes.

Is Nadine Valasquez some kind of shapeshifter? She looked different in every shot. I wasn't sure they hadn't recast her until the credits popped up.

Great episode. I think my idea of heaven would be pouncing on a lopsided fantasy trade while having a tied-up Nadine Velasquez in lingerie on my bed begging for it. Then hell would be your boys coming in and ruining it and brother-in-law barfing and shitting on your bed.

Rafi is a great addition.

This was much funnier than the premiere which, while entertaining, was a little "off" and felt somewhat obligatory.

Synopsis for The White Knuckler:

Spoiler:
Andre brings in a new partner to expand his medical practice; Ruxin uses a sick child to meet Cleveland Browns WR Joshua Cribbs (who appears as himself); and Pete deals with the complications of dating Kevin's ex-girlfriend (Lake Bell).

Ruxin: "What're you up here?" *points to head*
Taco: "Race car driver."
Kevin: "What lap are you on?"
Taco: "33"

And Taco with that sword...



I loved how Kevin had a whole "______ For Dummies" library.

Great one-two punch tonight with Sunny and this.

Just about everything Andre or Taco say cracks me up.

Great episode save for Paul Scheer's subplot... actually, he's the low point of the show.

That ending was ridiculous, but I just about died when he called in the white knuckler to apply pressure.

Funny episode. So far this season, it's surpassing "Sunny", IMO.

So I *finally* have "I'm Inside Me" as a ringtone : http://twitter.com/tacotones

"Class Act," "Firecracker," "Scrappy." I love it. So true.

"White's Only."

I like that everyone gets shit occasionally. Last season Pete gave Andre crap, by having Shiva examine his balls, this time he got crap while his GF grabbed Kevin's shwanz. And the look on their faces matched (smug ecstasy on Pete/Kevin, annoyance on Andre/Pete's).
