  • Chris joins the wrestling team.

    In the spirit of Saved by the Bell, The Adventures of Pete and Pete and a plethora of other 90's comedies we had Chris Rock joining the wrestling team with this episode. This produced some solid comedy highlighted with Chris going on a brief winning streak (by forfeit of course) before finally being destroyed in his first actual bout. This was simple and the fact that it reeked of the 90's made it slightly enjoyable.

    We also had the now obligatory American Idol/So You Think You Can Dance parody with Drew trying to put together a music group for a fake show known as Video Turntable. The show seems to love the dancing concept but to me this is not humorous, just really awkward television.
