But usually it's just a brief bit and then they move onto something else. In "Anchor Baby" it became the focal point and they kept going and going.

You guys act like you haven't seen the show before. It's essentially always been this way lol.

Not really.

They rarely bring up the fantasy football aspect anymore, and when they do it's outlandish and distracts from enjoying the show, like in this past episode. No one would trade RG3 for a defense, they aren't even trying to make it believable anymore. The writing has been extremely lazy this season, in my opinion, and so have the story lines. This show has always been relatively formulaic, but now it's "Make fun of Andre, Ruxin makes a gay joke, Jenny embarrasses Kevin in front of the guys, Pete is irrelevant."

Taco is the only consistently funny character anymore, as is Rafi but he's used infrequently.

Rafi needs to become a full time cast member.

I don't think Rafi would be quite as funny if he were a regular character. He's hilarious, but his brand of comedy would get old if he was heavily featured in every single episode.

Agreed completely. I've laughed maybe once an episode now at a show where I'd find myself laughing several times an episode. It's just weak.

I think the last episode I genuinely enjoyed was The Breastilyzer. The past five episodes have been cringe-worthy.

Anybody ever read the pilot that Mantzoukas wrote? It was a cop comedy called 'Off Duty,' but it was sadly never picked up. It's awesome.

This again. That'd be like making Jean Ralphio a regular in Parks And Rec. Some characters are golden just as recurring characters. I'd like them to stay that way. Rafi has killed it in all three episodes he's been in so far this season. Him being a regular would surely kill the streak.

Plus, he'd take away from the group dynamic. Everybody, except for Andre, is a major douche, but Rafi takes it to a level where he is THE ONLY douche around them.

Speaking of Rafi, he will be in two more episodes this season.

Andre sucks. Rafi rules.

I'm sure the RG3 thing was filmed before he started performing really well.

He's been doing well most of the season. I'd know since I have him on my team.
