    Totally great episode. Supposedly Nick Kroll, ( Ruxin ) will be on The Doug Benson interruption tonight at midnight on Comedy Central. And if you haven't listened to the Comedy Death Ray podcast, do yourself a favor and download one with Nick Kroll and Jon Hamm from Mad Men. There are a few of them doing characters. They are hilarious together.

    Yeah, I loved how they introduced the phrase and the one guy just got pissed and left the online smack-talking session. And then we had to wait to see what the hell it meant. Pretty damn funny, and an excellent delivery.

    This show is now my number one comedy, with Sunny, 30 Rock, and Modern Family following closely behind. The League is the one show I have to watch the night it airs.
    They black glittery shirt that Andre was wearing was also hilarious.
    Tacos' songs at the end could have gone on for hours and I would have listened.

    Yeah this show is awesome. This season has been all hits no misses for me... I agree that it has to be at the top or near the top of my favorite comedies on tv right now. I think the first season was a bit rough around the edges, but they have really refined and sharpened the whole thing and it is great throughout.

    One of the things is the cast is amazing and all very good at improv and they just make the whole thing work.

    I am seeing Ruxin do stand up this weekend. :) I will let you know if his stand up act is any good.

    I'm jealous, and I live like six miles from helium too.

    Probably one of my favorite comedies too. The good thing is being on FX it won't get the axe for lack of viewership like the big 4 comedies. The whole free Bears tickets sub plot was great too.

    I did expect the two guys to come out of the bushes with Fear Boners (needs to be capitalized) when the cops found them.

    Great episode. How classic was it when Pete ended up getting a Fear Boner of his own when he thought he was going to have to blow the guy to get the Bears tix.

    My only complaint with the show is Taco. His character has no consistency. Sometimes, he's so stupid he should be institutionalized. Other times, he seems perfectly fine. He's usually hilarious, so it's still funny, but it's just kind of bizarre how all over the map that character is.

    Apparently, you've never had a stoner for a friend before.

    Don't be. The stand up was WEAK! Horrible even. His two openers didn't help matters. Maybe worst pro comedy show I have ever seen.

    it's strange, but I've never gotten into those songs...I even tried to pay attention this time and still didn't think it was all that funny...

    I agree with Devdog's comment about Taco, but I've never had a stoner friend so maybe you're right!

    he's definitely right, all my stoner friends were very Taco-like, that's why he's so funny to me...

    I'm more puzzled by the fact his friends keep letting him do things (like singing at their party, etc.).

    I love my pro football, but blowing a guy for tickets? I don't think Pete would really do that, would he?

    That's part of it too. Like in the episode where Taco helped plan the anniversary party, they all treated him like he was mentally challenged and they didn't want to hurt his feelings by telling him no. But in real life, if you had a stoner friend that was doing those kinds of things that put you in an awkward position, you'd tell him to knock it off.

    Exactly. And after the crap he's done before, you wouldn't let him anywhere near your anniversary party.
