What's wrong with the world today?

'Mugged' is an unusual episode of FOTC. Plot-wise, it's somewhat disconnected from the story arc of episodes 1, 2, 4 and 5; it's also somewhat weaker and more fragmented as far as the writing goes. On the other hand, the episode has several traits that make it an absolute classic - first of all, the classic 'rapper name' dialog, one of the best written segments in the whole season, and more importantly, two of the best, funniest musical numbers FOTC ever recorded - the Marvin Gaye spoof 'Think About It', and the rap number 'Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros', both of which are real gems. We also have Lenny Venito and Luther Creek turning in a great performance, and Dave having a more substantial character than ever before.
