I definitely did not see the Jeanie/marcos relationship coming. I think it will play out that Marcos is going to feed Marty half-truths about the Merger and Marty will get the other half from Jeannie to eventually come out on top.
And I cringed when he set-up James, but that is the "dick" line that Marty's character has to/should walk. Where on one hand yea he was a HUGE dick but on the other you kind of understood why. They need to capitalize on that more and not just make him a dick for the sake of being a dick
But I do feel like they are writing themselves into a corner they are fueling the "Merger/Marty being fired" arc to epic proportions and i gotta say so far i dont think the writing has/would be good enough to "properly" tackle this monstrous story-line that they are setting up
but of course ill tune in to find out.
and p.s I believe the word you are looking for is Dramedy
looks like a faux arrested development.
I'll watch mainly b/c im partly in love Julia
like I said Creed is the funniest of the secondary characters they need to showcase him more
and when Stanley pulled a slice of pizza put pyramid holder I was in tears.
BUT all in all wasnt my favorite episode.
i wasnt really feeling the "pyramid launch party" story line until Jim started giving the presentation
and other than the creed bit didnt think the "back in Scranton" parts were that good either, though it was good to see Toby...when was the last time we saw him.
Last nights episode was just okay to me. I fear CougarTown is showing signs that it is suffering from the deadly disease of Over-The-Top-itis. (a disease which lately has plagued my beloved Community to the point where it might be Terminally ill)
a few of the scenes this week just seemed a little too OTT and forced, sorry but i like my comedy a little more subtle and natural.
And Yeah i am almost positive that that was Slagathor.
As far as the Ted part i just think we are way to far into the series for them to be giving us these faux omnipotent "I was finally free to meet your mother." If this happened in one of the first few seasons i would have been fine with it. But seeing how there is only like 1.5 seasons left i think they need to start giving more tangible clues for the mother/first meeting. Dont get me wrong most of the time I couldn't care less about the mother and just enjoyed the HIMYM ride. Either dont mention the mother or give a "REAL" clue no more of this all-knowing "I was ready" crap
I gotta say cougar town.
I would say Community but lately the quality has dropped to the point where I would rather it just stop to preserve the memory of how awesome it was when it first started than to further mar its name by the over-the-top junk it has been putting out.
BUT i will reserve my final opinion on that matter until i see the second half of season 3
and is the poll not working for anyone else
nice to have it back...but ill be sad to see parks go
I completely agree with the Ann-tom relationship. It was kinda cute/cool to see them together on valentines day, but now they are just flat out annoying. I was about to hop in that bottle April just to get through the episode. If they do stay together (which i sincerely hope they dont) their relationship should never be featured as prominently as it was last night.
Other than that i thought it was a pretty average episode. Though i did miss Ben, he easily became one of my favorite characters
I have to disagree I rather like darryl. It is kinda obvious that they are grooming him to be the new Jim. And they are trying to make him and Val the "new" new jim and pam (after the "new" jim and pam...andy and erin pretty much failed). And while his story this week wasnt that great i look forward to better stories with him down the line.
I was disappointed that there was no creed. His one-liners/little bits are about the funniest of all the secondary staff (i think he is WAY funnier than kevin) and I think they could have used for the back in scranton. But I will agree with you with the fact that there is not really anybody to construct a story around left in scranton. The Darryl story definitely did not develop as well as it couldve/wouldve if Jim, Dwight, or even Michael was back in scranton.
But all in all i still thought it was a good episode
I was never that big a fan of this show always thought the chemistry of the actors was rather sub-par and never really liked the over "Hollywood-ization" of the action/medical scenes but being a sucker for medical shows i got sucked in.
I completely agree with @bigi and @bagpipemouse
It's getting annoying to keep see Hank and evan keep fighting when the obvious solution is a simple compromise.
Also i think Evan and Vandyke will make a fine team. Once they work out the initial kinks they will be fine.
