    This is by far the best episode of season 2 and rests somewhere on my top 5 ever, if I ever made such a list. Some of the best one-liners (\"I don\'t watch TELEVISION. And notice I didn\'t say \'TV\' because \'TV\' is a nickname and nicknames are for friends, and television is NO friend of mine.\") amazing characters like Droopy and the Kings of Megaphone Crooning (\"Thank you!\")

    Admitedly, the end (Coupon: The Movie) is a bit tired. They do that joke pretty often and this one drags, but it picks it up again with the people-on-the-street reviews featuring Jack Black and Maynard and Adam from Tool/Pusifier. This is the episode that got me into Mr. Show so it comes as no surprise that when i show people this ep, they become devout followers as well.moreless
