We have to admit we have a few laughs out of the whole thing, but the show is much more enjoyable if you actually tolerate frat bros; otherwise, it comes off as slightly insensitive to our eastern borough friends. That said, this episode is the first of many, so we have high hopes for more witty banter. (Animal)
