"I am not interested in recap for recap's sake, but I'm interested in recap that is moral, that is right and that is good." - Martin Luther Robot Jr.

Tonights recap is dedicated to GynecologistCobra, who stood up today and declared that he doesn't need the oppression of Grand Theft Auto IV and has shown solidarity for his brothers who refuse to give in when society turns a blind eye to pain. Right on, my brother.
