Based on the new guy’s reference to the Cotton Bowl feature Texas A&M and the Crimson Tide (Roll Tide), the episode starts at the end of 1967 and ends at the beginning of 1968. I don’t remember when the last season was supposed to have ended, though.
Glad everyone’s back! <3 you Joan! And you too, Peggy! And you, Lindsay Weir!
Oh man, I love so many things and I’m so excited about Game of Thrones coming back. Also coming back March 31, Doctor Who. And it is about time.
I also learned today that Veep is coming back on April 14. So we have that to look forward to as well!
I loved that Tall Footman was a plot point.

During the season April and Andy got married, the week before that episode aired NBC played a commercial during Parks and Rec that said something like “Log on to NBC.com to see April and Andy’s wedding photos (or blog or something like that).” So then, the next week it was pretty obvious very early what was going on, which was too bad! I would have liked that to be a surprise.
I loved Parks and Rec so much! Last night was so great, and I was actually surprised! Not like the last time they had a wedding and managed to spoil it by accidentally airing the wrong commercial (remember that?). I really can’t wait to see all of this play out.
We had two trampolines growing up (not at the same time. One got blown away in a hurricane so we got another one), and we never had any crazy accidents. This was also before the days of those ridiculous safety nets. We always believed the trampoline was just a way to encourage natural selection. Only the strong survive!
I hope you’re not joking about this because I really like Bones. So far, I’m down with this season. I’m glad that she’s not blond anymore, too. That was terrible.
I can already tell I’m going to cry so much when whatever happens to Amy and Rory happens. Possibly even Rose-level tears. And let me just tell you, that’s a lot of tears.
I could take the Daleks or leave them. I was not a fan of the big, bright blue/yellow/white Daleks from the WWII episode. Those were silly. You know what’s not silly? That baby Weeping Angel statue. That is straight up terrifying.
Also, the show is Doctor Who. Not Dr. Who.
Drop Dead Gorgeous
ME TOO! He’s the worst. Quit whining and get a job, loser!
Writing that makes me feel old, though. When I first watched that movie when it came out, I thought he was so dreamy. Now, I just think he’s an asshole and she’s crazy for picking the depressed, unemployed guy who is a jerk when she could have had fun, employed Ben Stiller who thought she was awesome.
This really just reminds me how badly I want this show to come back. And also how irritating I find the schedule for the season.
I pick puppies.
I am too, but I don’t feel bad about it. If we can use twitter to share things that make us laugh, what is the problem with sharing things that make us feel genuinely sad?
You need to watch the Christmas special even if you don’t write about it.
I’m so excited about the Garfunkel and Oates special!
I’m not a huge fan of the book either. There were parts I enjoyed (specifically the part where he organizes the factory workers), and I thought the ending was very funny, but I was bored for many more pages than I was entertained.
However, most of my friends whose literary tastes I trust and respect love this book. So, to each her own, I suppose.
And boom, full season pick up for Parks and Rec.
They’re not necessarily being canceled. They’ve just been picked up for shorter seasons of 13 episodes each instead of the usual 22. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, or set in stone. NBC has done that before, picked up a show for 13 episodes then extend it to 16 or 22. Also, this is not the first time that Parks and Rec and Community have been on the chopping block like this. It’ll be fine. And if it’s only 13 episodes, I bet they’ll be 13 really great episodes.
Also, 30 Rock has been setting up to end for at least 2 seasons now. Both of the main characters have been saying that they are ready to do something else. Tina Fey put it in her book, and Alec Baldwin talks about it pretty regularly.
I liked the New Girl a lot! It was much funnier and much more likable than I ever imagined it would be.
You know what other show is great? Best Friends Forever. You know what sucks? They released four episodes and then benched it. That is stupid.
Oh. Oh wow. I KNEW she looked familiar. This is going to take me a minute to deal with.
YES! I loved it so much (see my comment above)! It was so great! I want to say so many things about it, but I can’t because it’s impossible to talk about it without spoilers.
I really enjoyed this movie. I wanted to say something more thoughtful, but I just really had fun while watching this movie. It was funny and sort of sad, it never felt like it was dragging, the action was fun, everyone in it was great, and we FINALLY got a decent (if brief) Hulk story.
I also saw another Joss Whedon movie (well, co-written movie) this weekend that I really enjoyed. I know everyone has probably already seen Cabin In The Woods, but if you haven’t seen it, do so right now.
Yes to both the high voice and it’s funny.
Unrelated, I was concerned that RENO would be one of those things that I thought was really funny when I was in early high school, but that wouldn’t hold up for me now. Good news! It does! Still funny.
I didn’t see Community last night, but I watched the Ave Maria episode of RENO the other day (it’s on Netflix watch instantly now). Dangle plays it on the banjo and Jones sings it while Clementine is getting married to some guy with a giant mullet.
