    $hit this was a good episode (and for the most part uncensored - everything except "f--k" is heard). A cop drama show (called "Cop Drama") decides that in order to get more ratings they are going to use the word "$hit" on their show... this of course does get them more ratings, and so they start using the word "$hit" in more and more of their shows and more and more times in each show. The town is spell-bound, and tunes into every show that uses the word, however this has a price. People start mysteriously vomiting their guts out and dying, which the boys discover is exactly like the symptoms of the "black plague" which they then find out came about right when the word "$hit" entered the English vocabulary. It's up to the boys to find a way to save the town. This episode has a running counter in the bottom, left-hand corner of the screen that keeps track of how many times "$hit" is said within the half-hour (the total? 162). I loved this episode and was very surprised at how many times they got away with actually saying "$hit" on TV. I highly recommend you give it a watch!
