    First – great episode! The hook is set, I’m a fan. Only wish I still lived in San Fran so that I could be a creepy grown-up groupie.

    My 2011 top 5 Fav:

    5. LMFAO’s song Party Rock Anthem and Kia Soul Hamster Commercial. Pure genius and slightly mind numbing idiocy.

    4. Watchable baseball playoffs/series, especially for non-Yankee or Sox fans… or non-baseball fans in general.

    3. Ashley Green is single again. The *only* reason for me to be dragged it yet another Twilight Series movie.

    2. Hotter chick on the TV show Fresh Beat Band (it’s the little things when the only TV I watch is programmed by a 4-year old).

    1. TheOatmeal.com. Guilty pleasure of seeing idiocy revealed through sarcastic animation.

    I know … “snore!”
