Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
We don't have a lot of these left this year - at least as far as The Office is concerned.
Speaking of which, here's something at Season Pass something to pass the time.
...from the NYT editorials tomorrow:
"This might sound elitist, but when "The Office" goes out of production, we worry about what might happen to its place in the lineup."
I love Foxy Boxing. It combines two of my favorite things. Boxing. And referees.
The party flashbacks were hilarious.
Even David Schwimmer was funny.
One of their best episodes. Man... I hope they resolve this strike soon.
This is the best strike ever.
Still haven't watched Scrubs yet.
It's Always Sunny was a pretty average episode though Charlie's Serpico plotline was pretty dang funny.
Michael duct-taping his recently sliced pants?
Jim scarily transforming into a more respectable Michael?
Stanley smiling at his birthday cake?
Dwight trying to knock Michael unconscious with his shoe while driving?
And the final scene with Jim and Michael over the credits was a low-key gem.
9 - The American Office has always injected darkness - always. The show never ceases to show that you can never have it all (or have nothing). Jim is facing work demons now that his love life is going well. They are moving Jim toward his career crossroads, and it's pretty brilliant.
I interviewed Emily Mortimer today (regarding "Lars and the Real Girl" and got to talk about avian bone syndrome with her.
Finally watched Scrubs and it was pretty decent. JD's plotline was pretty insightful, but Carla's lessons are becoming a bit trite.
"Carter the heated killer...the cool lover."
"Get Carter...before Carter gets you."
Does ABC purposefully program Desperate Housewives to end at 9:01pm CT to force people with DVR's not smart enough to crop that overage into making tough decision about either recording DH for their wives from 8-9, or recording something else in the 9-10p slot?
It is a really frustrating practice, and I'd be even more upset if it was to intentionally put me in the predicament.
Once a year my wife and curl up with a fire and bring out "The Great Race" and watch Jack Lemmon eating through scene after scene. This Sunday proved to be the perfect day for our annual ritual.
For those who stuck it out with TMYLM, how was it? Was it worth it in the end? It seems like a show that better watched in a larger chunk than weekly.
Now bring on the Extras Xmas Special!!!
I wasn't sure if anything on that show could pass "Never go with a hippie to a second location." from the week before but they did it..multiple times...this one topped it for me:
The dead-pan, hilarious, "We have to talk about what happened last night at Kenneth's party" from Jack
We're going to be watching it shortly. I'm excited.
Let's go to Ben Laden's they got great collars.
Along those lines, I'm left to wonder where the show will go from here. SPOILERS TO FOLLOW
1. The fact that Hugo and Jamie don't actually get married in this episode makes me think they probably won't. Otherwise, why not just have them married at the end of the show? Why pick up next season at the "chapel" with them getting married? I've never cared much for either character, but it was nice to see them reunite.
2. What's next for Palek and Carolyn? Will C take him back, and is he only willing to come back because they're no longer pregnant?
3. Katie and Dave - wow. Dave saying "eff you" and then walking into the kitchen and closing the fridge and asserting himself was triumphant. But are their problems solved? Do they still need therapy?
1) I think the marriage was implied. In any case, I wouldn't assume the show would pick up (if it comes back) the minute the previous season left off. It could pick up six months into their marriage.
2) They're so screwed up, anything is possible.
3) Do they still need therapy? Are you kidding? All they've done is find they still have the passion to keep the light on. Their sex was like a wrestling match.
2. I read a comment on a blog in which the commenter posed the possibility that the miscarriage was actually an abortion. I don't know whether that's a possibility, as it seems that the ultrasound doctor would have been able to figure that out. But I'm no expert.
3. I guess I meant, do they think they still need therapy. Will they still go. I suppose they will, given that therapy is such a big part of the show.
The next day, they walk into a wedding chapel with $250 and walk out as husband and wife.
So, I guess Jamie and Hugo are married after all.
Just to say thank you. Nothing more. I swear.
Spectacular imagery, bright colors, quick dialog. Chi McBride & Kristen Chenoweth are outstanding. I can't say enough about this show.
It could be the first show that I've actually come in on the ground floor on. Seinfeld, The Office, Scrubs, It's Always Sunny, etc. were all shows that I did not start watching until they were already pretty well established. I wouldn't call myself a front-runner, just someone who never really watched primetime television until this year.
36 - It's a very inventive show. It really isn't just surface stuff. Although it does lag in the middle sometimes.
New post up top.
