    The hottest show this season is Two Yards of Satan. This show has everything: cloven feet, Catholic terrorists, pork rinds, that guy from Fight Club, naked Hot Jesus, and quick-change mariachi demons. Catch this one before someone calls 911.

    Right from the word go I was drawn in and guffawed with laughter all the way.
    I could see this all playing out in my head. I would imagine the audience laughing out loud from start to finish.
    The characters are so well-drawn and so funny.
    The ending is superb when Pam accidentally summons God.
    "Daddy's home ..."
    haha
    Really enjoyed it. Bravo.

    A wonderful bit of absurdity that keeps topping itself. Laced throughout with funny twists and some truly great one-liners ("Look, ma'am, it's your word against Satan's"), it's a joy to read. Also plays itself out nicely with a stellar last few moments.
