  • This episode just wasn't any good, nor entertaining, and I found it almost angering how vigilantes were pitied, and the sodomizing and finger-severing they committed were given a glance and forgotten! Surely others feel this way about this episode.

    Anthony Anderson to me had little believability playing such a serious role; he is a comedy actor. The story line was not only formulaic from the get-go, it tried to make vigilante rapists seem the victims as much as the girl they brutalized! Sorry, but in my world, you can\'t equate beating the crap out of a man, which granted was awful, with sodomizing and cutting off the finger (and attemptedly the hands) of a teenaged girl! So, I wasn\'t rooting for the obese kids even at this point. But then to have one of them murder someone and still play the sympathetic character looked upon with pity?? Come on, I love this show, but this episode was mediocre at very best.
