Every episode could be called "The Gang Adopts The Shallow Veneer Of A Lifestyle." Here it's Dee's rapper boyfriend Kevin -- possibly retarded -- who gives Mac the idea to start a band.

I'll never doubt you again, Grade: A- Stray observations: - Charlie's desire to hide behind some kind of curtain while performing is strangely sweet, but I don't think his flight from the hostile crowd really works. If it's not too much to claim -- and heck, I claimed it about Is it looking good with a guitar?
