I liked it though I wasn’t blown away by it.
Jeff Daniels – good, solid and other adjectives of that nature
Emily Mortimer – good (and not too hard on the eyes fellas *elbow nudge*elbow nudge*)
Sam Waterston – I love grumpy Sam Waterston! More please!
the Don guy – I don’t know why but I really liked how they switched him up on us at the end of the episode. He admitted he was wrong, apologized, went down to say hi to Bubbley McSmiley’s parents, etc.
I guess I can see why people wouldn’t like the very Sorkin-ness of it but it’s my cup of tea and I’ll have another one thank you very much. Its future success largely depends where it goes from here. If every episode is filled with “impassioned speeches about the democratic power of knowledge” then that’ll get old real fast. If that’s just in the pilot to set the scene then I’m excited.
That makes more sense doesn’t it. Kind of makes it a little less funny bc it isn’t completely random anymore =/
and WATCH OUT GIANT TURKEYS!
I can appreciate why some people wouldn’t like the video game episode * but I absolutely loved it. It was just a bunch of nonsense and little references, which is Community at its best. I didn’t even care that it was obviously supposed to air earlier in the season – I just thought of it as a bonus episode that didn’t influence my enjoyment of the last 2 episodes one bit.
I thought the 2nd and 3rd were as good as Community’s been in a while. Can we get a .gif of when Troy whispered in Abeds ear and then Abed told them what he said? Loved that part. If this show doesn’t last six seasons and a movie ima cry for real guys.
*No I can’t, it was amazeballs. I’m just trying to be polite
There is no way anyone can convince me that The Neighbors trailer is for real. No way, no how. I am 100% convinced the network executive’s 12 year old son accidentally uploaded his youtube project on his dad’s computer. Either that or I DON’T WANT TO LIVE ON THIS PLANET ANYMORE
This….is a good call
But that’s just it. Joffrey is straight-up evil so I expect him to do and say terrible things. Theon, like you said, was raised by the Starks so I keep expecting him to redeem himself. To me, it’s more frustrating to watch Theon sink toward rock bottom than to watch Joffrey slither around already down there.
I always assumed they reuse commercials when they need more time before a sketch or when they have time left at the end that’s not enough for a sketch.
I don’t even listen to the words when they do this sketch. I’m too busy being mesmerized by Will Forte’s face. It never fails to make me LOL
I’ve been reading the books and I’ve finally gotten out ahead of the show having just finished A Clash of Kings. I have a much easier time keeping track of who’s who and what’s what in the show now, but I also notice every little difference between the book and show – which is frustrating. I’d rather just enjoy it for the good tv it is and not constantly be comparing the two versions in my mind.
As for this episode, I think Theon passed Joffrey for the evil-doer I most want to punch in the face. He’s got a very punchable face, wouldn’t you say?
Is it “honest” opinion? I thought IMHO stood for “in my humble opinion.” Anyway, that’s what I meant .
I DO know a guy who lies about everything though. I’m sure he watches this show and I’m sure I can get you two together.
I really like the show! Not a big fan of the finale though. I think it’s at its best when it’s just trying to be quirky and fun instead of sweet and emotional.
SPOILER WARNING: I expected Nick to actually move out and that would be the hook or cliff hanger to end the season. Then next year in the first episode (or few) he would come back. When they just had him come back at the end of this one I was like, “oh. bleh” Not bad, but coulda been better IMHO
“Orange Sherbert? No, never tried it.”
When I said that, it was kind of tongue-in-cheek. The Next Week teasers are so ridiculously devoid of content and meaning.
I don’t think people are afraid to call it a bad show. At least for me, I give it the benefit of the doubt because when it’s good it’s complex and deep and layered so I’m open to the possibility that when it doesn’t seem like it is at it best, it’s because I’m missing something.
Also, what’s the deal with the “Next Time on Mad Men” this season? Just a bunch of quick shots of people reacting to things, no actual information. Is that also a subtle homage to 60′s era tv style or is it as asinine and pointless as it appears?
I kind of see this as a turning point in the season for Don. He was doing so well because he merged his work and personal life through Megan. He’s constantly been distracted by work or his work-extension (Megan). Now that there is a separation again, we’re going to see some regression as foreshadowed by the elevator and the view of Don through his booze bottles when he enters his office immediately after.
I love the little throwaway moments like Peggy’s PIZZA HOUSE and Pete and Harry’s miscommunication by the phone booth. LOLs for real.
