Really watched it just for the Kings of Leon ......
10 November 2008 | by (St. Clair Shores, Michigan) – See all my reviews

This was a rather funny episode with James Franco, but the 9 stars are for the two fabulous songs performed by the talented Kings of Leon. They are so far just such an underrated band. Hopefully, this new album of theirs will help them and not spoil them. "Sex on Fire" has to be the most catchy and original tune by any band in a few years. They are also very easy on the eyes without being sissy-boybandish looking. There was also one short but very funny sketch of John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men" with an alternate ending. I was surprised that James Franco was as funny as he was because he is usually so serious in his movies. Overall, REALLY GOOD SHOW !!
