    How prophetic that Cracked kept this show after it jumped the shark with a new cast and totally ruined it. Also, thank God these episodes are still on 9 years later, cause this is so freaking excellent!

    I LOVE the pop-up TV show ads! They're incredibly annoying in real life (aptly pointed out by Stewie on "Family Guy") but SO perfect here. Well done!

    If you are going to talk about cliches, can we talk about how the girl in this After Hours is the only one with a salad and the guys have the burgers and fries? It happens all the time in shows. The chick always has to eat like a rabbit no matter her character while the guys eat actual food.

    I get the feeling that if these guys had their own show, it would be a cross between Big Bang Theory and Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

    I love a show that stars all white people talking about how it's important that their show doesn't have majority white people. Man the white guilt is strong with this crew.

    Every Sitcom:
    Parents only exist to provide for their kids' needs. Teachers exist to make kids miserable.
    Every Rom-Com:
    Two people who don't like each other are thrown together until they fall in love. Everyone else exists to encourage them.
    Every Sporting Event:
    The champions are arrogant pricks. The underdogs just need some encouragement to kick serious butt.
    Action - Adventure:
    Everything explodes! Everyone dies! Hero is immune to everything but the Eye Candy, who falls for him because he saved her life.
    People fall down and/or hurt themselves. Hahaha! It's funny because it's happening to someone else.
    Every alien in the universe wants to kill us. We have to outthink and outfight them, while taking the time to spread our DNA.
    Something very bad just happened. This small team of overworked, underpaid specialists won't rest until they figure out why.
