Did you make it through NBC's first marathon Thursday Night Comedy Block last night? I won't lie to you, Internet: Three hours is a long time to do anything, even laugh. I don't blame you if you skipped out on a few minutes to eat or sleep, especially if you did it during Outsourced
. But why am I talking about Outsourced
? That's breaking my New Year's Resolution to pretend Outsourced
doesn't exist. (It's my life and it's precious and that's how I want to live it!)
But back to shows that ought to be celebrated for existing: Here are my quick thoughts and favorite clips from Parks and Rec, The Office, 30 Rock and Community. What say you, laugh-mongers?
Parks and Recreation:
It's BACK! Finally, the world can be fun again! I hope you're as excited as I am, though I have one reason to be way more stoked than you: Today is the day that I can finally brag that I have a Swanson Pyramid of Greatness hanging at my desk. And it. Is. Glorious
Who else got stuck in a glass case of mixed emotion as she watched (super-hot) Jeff Winger run through the rain? And then felt her emotions get even mixier when it turned out that he was running to Dr. Ain't Life Swell's house? On the one hand: JEFF AND ANNIE, C'MON! But on the other: Meh, it's really just the jokes that are important! Well, here's one thing I'm not conflicted about: This is one quality Cosby sweater reference.30 Rock:
When a show can make you laugh, think, cherish and snort in the course of two minutes, then you know it is a great show. 30 Rock
is a great show. And Jack and Lemon are the greatest non-sexual life partners around. Although my favorite line of the night goes to Dr. Spaceman: "You have no reflexes, your blood tastes like root beer and some of your bones appear to have vanished."The Office:
Was that the best episode of Season 7 so far, or what? Don't say "Or what." If you say "or what," I will have to drink the two bottles of scotch in my sad box.
I didn't watch Perfect Couples
, because I'm single and wasn't invited. But if you watched it: What did you think?
