My Big Fat Greek Initiation

My Big Fat Greek Initiation - The pledges finally take their pledge exams and a vote is taken amongst the brothers as to who gets in and who doesn't. One of the pledges doesn't make it into the fraternity -- the first time in the frat's four-year history that such an event has taken place. The rest of the pledges have to make a decision: they can either unify behind their fallen brother and threaten to walk away from pledging themselves, or continue pledging without him. It takes them about thirty seconds to come to a decision which is basically "Screw Steve. On with the show."

How To Lose A Pledge In Ten Days: Welcome To Hell, Part II

How To Lose A Pledge In Ten Days: Welcome To Hell, Part II - It's Hell Week for the pledges, except fraternity law requires them to call it something other than "Hell" Week, so they opt for the mysterious "I Week." Earl continues getting on everyone's nerves, fighting with both Jarreau and Alex and alienating himself from the group. It's the same crap that we've seen for the past eleven weeks, only this week it takes place in the frat-house basement.

Table For Six

Table For Six - The boys are tense because it's Alumni Weekend, when the alums come back to school to see what kind of losers are pledging their frat. To celebrate the alums' return, the guys are ordered to build a beer pong table, which they tackle with the kind of enthusiasm that would usually be reserved for do-it-yourself prostate exams. So we have a lot of tense moments mixed with some carpentry. It's kind of like that episode of This Old House when Bob Vila showed up wired on cocaine and chased Norm around with a claw hammer.

She Ain't Heavy, She's My Stalker

She Ain’t Heavy, She’s My Stalker - Tim wavers on making a commitment to Nicole, his "good friend" from Sorority Life, and Nicole can't figure out why. So she decides to invade every waking minute of Tim's life in the hope that he will finally kiss her. Meanwhile, Tim's getting his groove on with Kristi, his ex-girlfriend, and a stripper by the name of Tammy Boom-Booms, proving that he's got game. We also are treated to the return of Lindsey and the extra-special super-sized return of Grant the Loser. And not a single brother made it into the episode. Which makes Uncle Bob a very happy man indeed.

Northern Exposure

Northern Exposure - The brothers tell the pledges that they're taking them to Toronto for a scavenger hunt, and that if the pledges can find everything on the scavenger hunt, they get to hang out with the likes of Flounder and Brad as equals rather than pledges. Apparently, this is seen as some sort of "prize" by the brothers. Uncle Bob calls it "torture." The guys race around town, trying to find all the items, but have trouble tracking down the mysterious Golden Sword. Until they realize it's actually a metaphor, at which point they celebrate like they just graduated rocket scientist school. If Uncle Bob owned a gun, his television's guts would be splattered all over his walls by now.

Earl's Gone Wild

Earl’s Gone Wild - Earl admits, to the shock of absolutely nobody, that he's a virgin. In fact, this revelation now serves as an explanation for his constant infantile behavior. The boy decides to jump head-first into the sex pool by having his first girlfriend be a stripper. The stripper either actually likes Earl or may be so whacked out on cocaine that she sees MTV cameras and thinks she's filming a Whitesnake video. Sadly, her fascination with the mama's boy is never fully explained.

How Alex Got His Groove Back

How Alex Got His Groove Back - This week's episode revolves around Alex and Lindsey and the pitfalls of a relationship in which one of the participants decides to pledge a fraternity. Lines of communication break down, cross words are spoken, and anniversaries are abruptly halted because a bunch of guys demand that you leave your girlfriend's side and come get yelled at by a bunch of other guys for daring to have a woman in your life, proving once again that life in a fraternity is not all drinking and vomiting. There's an awful lot of jealous coveting as well.

Line Me Up, Line Me Down

Line Me Up, Line Me Down - It's amazing just how much disrespect can exist when you're pledging to get into a frat. The brothers think the pledges are disrespecting them because the pledges can never make it to meetings on time. Earl thinks the pledges disrespect him because they curse in the background while he's trying to talk to his Mommy. Ron the Scary Alum thinks Steve is disrespecting him because Steve likes girls. Brad thinks everyone's disrespecting him because they ignore his constant pleas for someone to cuddle with. And Uncle Bob disrespects all of them for being a bunch of whiny, self-centered bitches.

The Frat And The Furious

The Frat And The Furious - So after the brothers realize that they hated the rushees so much that they could only pick a handful of them to join, they decide to lower their standards so that they can actually have a pledge class. Once the pledges accept their bids, it becomes painfully obvious why they weren't wanted in the first place. Four of them drop out immediately. One never shows up on time for anything. And one can't stop vomiting. He must have been forced to watch the dailies of this wretched crap.

Rush Week

Rush Week - It's Rush Week at Sigma Chi Omega. We're introduced to a group of guys who want to become pledges of the fraternity. They have one problem: 90% of the guys already in the fraternity are stuffy assholes who don't want the pledges in their fraternity. It's a battle of the dimwits as the pledges try to impress the brothers and the brothers aren't impressed. Neither was Uncle Bob.

Well, how about if they all do lots and lots of community service to make up for being complete and utter douchebags? Yep: we're talking your basic douchebag with a heart of gold.
