Can we SERIOUSLY talk about how I was supposed to take Anthony Michael Hall seriously as a bully after Breakfast Club? But it did make it a little more believable when he showed up as the bully on Community.
The only omission I can think of is Glenn Guglia from The Wedding Singer. He cheats on Drew Barrymore’s character, is a total douche AND her name would be Juglia Guglia. On the other hand, he DOES wears those swingin’ Don Johnson coats and is the proud owner of a pretty sweet CD player.
Tragedy Boner-strokers are eclipsed only by the “I care the LEAST” people who compete to be the first in line for the grief backlash horde to say how much they don’t care at all that a celebrity has died and shame on the rest of you for caring because that is lame and you didn’t really KNOW them. Congratulations for being at the front of the line, Gabe. You truly did beat us all this time.
Is everyone still pretending that she’s dating RPatzzzzzzzz?
And that she’s prettier than Charlize Theron?
My favourite part of this is the part where the budding poet’s buddy runs up the aisle for high fives. Because OF COURSE you get high fives after standing on stage next to the guy who sings the Ain’t No Homos Gonna Make It To Heaven song. What else would you do? I’m surprised the singer didn’t immediately drop the mike and walk off like a boss.
It was OK. I assume they got The National because Nick Cave was unavailable?
You aren’t the only one. I mean, I wasn’t BORED by it, but I felt like the pacing was off. As much as I enjoyed watching Cersei getting slizzard from that drank, it kept taking me away from the battle scenes. The wildfire looked awesome in the dark, but everything else was like “What happened? Did you see that? I think somebody got his head cut off but… I don’t know!”
Loved Tyrion, how could you not? But Shae is annoying. I think everyone else is killing it, but that actress… woof. When Cersei is like “You can’t curtsey properly? Hmmmm… methinks thou might not be who thou sayeth thou are.” Etc. I guess, OK. But that only served to remind me of Tywin and Arya and how GOOD those scenes are in comparison.
Looking forward to next week, though, but I hope we don’t spent ALL our time in Qarth.
That’s true, too. I really don’t get the weird arguments that happen against this show (but I guess it’s more of a backhanded compliment because people seem to like it, EVEN THOUGH those jokes have NO PURPOSE???) because one week, it will be super jokey and funny and people whine about how “there’s, like, totally no character development, maaaaaaaan!” and then the next week, they do an episode that takes place basically in the imagination of one character and people are all “But where were all the purposeless jokes!?” It can’t win. Even among its alleged fan base.
YES! Community was SO GREAT!
“Community‘s new-clips clip show was silly. Kind of tiring, in the same was 30 Rock always is — jokes that don’t really have a purpose or base in anything — but fun enough, I thought!”
I about spit out my OJ at this. Because WHAT!? Jokes that don’t have a purpose or base in anything?! Come on! Almost every single joke on Community was either a callback to a previous joke from an earlier episode or a prime example of a joke expanding on a character’s personality. It also moved the plot forward and set them up to go save the real dean and Chang!
I think my favourite little joke was Abed narrating Pierce’s life. “He said, oldly.” is exactly how I imagine the narration for Gabe’s life.
And furthermore, C3P0′s Rambo impression is nowhere NEAR as good as Andy’s Rambo impression!
Paul Rudd was understated perfection as Bobby Newport. I love him when he plays the smart-ass, but I think I love him more when he plays dumb. In a night of many well-chosen guest stars (Especially Donald Glover as Young Tracy and Jimmy Fallon as Young Jack), I’d give him the top prize.
As good as Rudd was, though, how great was Perd Hapley telling Leslie that her time was going to be up, and then telling her it was up because he’d been talking for so long? SO GREAT!
HIS NAME WAS ALEX!
I think we’re all upset because this isn’t Dance Pants. But Troy is just going to have to stumble onto that one on his own.
