I thought it was great!
4 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While I was flying to Denver I got pretty bored, so I went to DISH Online to kill some time and found this episode. I truly believe that this was the most hilarious episode I have ever seen. After Stan catches his son and Snot in spandex air-guitaring like pros he decided that snot is not cool enough to hang out with Steve. The only solution left is for him to drive a wedge between them the CIA way; with lies and deceit. The side story this week is almost as hilarious as the main plot. Jeff needs some financial help, so Roger is kind enough to let him clean the attic for some cash. Unfortunately for Jeff, Roger is also evil enough to promptly steal it back. Some of the guys in my office at DISH said that the plot was lacking a certain amount of absurdness, but if you are anything like me then I know that your sides are going to hurt by the end.
