Last week as all about plot development, whereas this week was all about the ensuation of hijinks to where I really need to watch it again for the fact that I laughed through about 1/3 of the jokes because the other 2/3 was just that funny.
"Can you HOP?" [They only give Kevin like one line per week, but dammit if he doesn't hit it out of the park every time]
"What does this look like to you?" (pointing to bubble wrapped foot) "Mailboxes, Etc."
Sorry but even Michael Scott isn't dumb enough to cook bacon in bed, is he? This is just like early Simpsons - Homer got dumber and more ridiculous each week. Not my favorite episode, but still had funny moments.
great "Earl" moment--
"Sonny Bono, that's the guy from U2. I should go on the game show where people can remember names and stuff. Uh, what's that called again?"
It did better in A18-49 than Will and Grace or Four Kings (which both the wife and I liked last night) and also did better in A18-49 than Dancing with the Stars. Just remember, while overall ratings are important, it's demos that sell.
good episode, still down from the boat ride. I'm also thinking they really need to cut down on the cartoonish parts of the show. more realism works for me. less of Michael would also work like the Dwight in charge of Healthplan episode. also for more deadspots like when everyone was waiting for Michael's surprise.
In fairness, I haven't seen the other movies/miniseries, but it's really hard for me to believe that any of the nominees even came close to McDormand's performance in Olive Kitteridge. She was amazing.
