Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
And now it's Mad Men! I'll never get any work done at this rate, TiVo or no.
I was disappointed by "30 Rock" largely because Will Artnett was back, and I loved his work last season. (Or rather, last week, when I got around to watching the first season on DVD.) But it just didn't really bring the funny for me. I can't put my finger on an over-arching reason why -- the jokes just weren't very good.
It made more sense than the Armin Tanzarian/Seymour Skinner switch.
And the rest of the show was great. I will have to tell people I work with that whoever they are is just what room they are in.
Also, I think liking this show gives you cool credibility, in fact, it is probably much cooler to like this show than Pushing Daisies.
Episode 1 (1st Half): This was great! Dwight vs the Computer got me cracking up. The DVD Video screensaver was a signature moment. Meridith's "cast signing" is such a hoot! Michael not realizing the VIP party was an online party is so him, and very funny. Anyone notice the potential hookup between Kelly and Daryl?
Episode 2 (2nd Half): Not as good. I don't know how kidnapping a minor is funny. Kevin helped carry some of it, but despite that, it was more squeamish than funny.
The last five minutes were kind of confusing. Some random DM guy went up and gave kudos to Michael's "webcam greeting." Is Ryan as hated in other branches as he seems to be over in Scranton?
-So, how do you feel about the fact that the banner says, "Lunch"?
-I feel angry. Angry at you. Angry at you for doing something stupid. Angry at me for believing you could do something not stupid.
-I'm so sorry to hear that. That must be awful.
-It is awful. You've made this day awful.
It tends to make them more angry.
Being big helps, too.
