Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
Season finale for 30 Rock, plus other delectables ...
Update: The Office was hysterical. And it was great to see Kelly and Creed showcased at their jobs.
It's sort of like how I operate at work.
Andy being creeped out for all of five seconds before getting jealous about his underaged girlfriend was priceless.
Beer me that CD...
The bookends were the funniest part of the episode, but the middle was a little slack. It is a bizarre episode that features as much Angela, Kelly and Creed as Pam, Jim or Michael. Still, it was a solid entry and a good placeholder. None of the relationship issues came up, but that is probably for the best right now. There are what, two episodes left?
If I could leave you with one thought, remember, it wasn't me. They are trying to make me an escape goat. If I am fired, I swear to god, that every single piece of copier paper in this town is going to have the F-word on it. The F-word. You have one day.
Also, I enjoyed last night's 30 Rock, pretty good show, I'm just worried about next how good next season would be if Alec Baldwin does in fact leave the show.
I described it to a friend as "Borat-Funny." Meaning, I laughed out loud roughly once per minute. It may be the funniest episode ever, certainly top 5.
And frankly, the less Pam-Jim subplot the better. It's not funny, and I like my comedies funny.
Going back and watching it today it truly was a great episode. One thing that needs to be noted is the cue card briefly shown that Michael doesn't end up reading. It talks about him needing the job to pay his mortgage and stuff like that - very funny.
30 Rock was again not quite to my liking, maybe it just isn't the show for me.
Scrubs was pretty "meh" although the janitor was great again. I think I miss the JD/Turk interactions and I feel that JD's character is less wacky than he used to be (appletini hijinx aside). It could be that Zach Braff's movie success has lessened his fervor for Scrubs, but he just doesn't seem to have the same energy that he used to.
Not every episode of the X-Files needed to have aliens, and not every episode of The Office needs a Jim & Pam moment. Here's to more Angela & Kelly moments.
I predict this episode will become a staple in every PR company's pitch for crisis preparation and management gigs. The press conference featured every mistake you can possibly make, while thinking you're doing the right thing.
