"Everybody Pants Now!" and the Other Best Lines from NBC's Thursday Night Comedies
Community. Grade: D+. The part where Britta spit in Chang's face? That felt like a metaphor for what this episode did to me. The Model U.N.? An extended fart joke? A Uraguay/Your A Gay Joke? Lionel Ritchie's "Hello"? That's 17th episode of the season stuff, not the second episode of the season.
Parks and Recreation (Grade: A-. The real key to the success of this show is not Andy and April's relationship; it's not Leslie Knope; it's not the Tammys; it's not even Ron Swanson. It's alcohol. The best episodes of "Parks and Recreation" all involve alcohol.
"This is America, isn't it?" -- Ron's Mom.
"Yes." -- Leslie
"Then I don't have to answer stupid questions while standing on my own property." -- Leslie
The Office. Grade: B+ Not a particularly funny episode, but one that was incredibly likable, and that's something that the old Michael-Scott show rarely achieved. The dynamic between Robert and Andy has been pitch perfect through these first two episodes: Robert as the villain, and Andy as the earnest savior, although Andy's anger management issues have seemingly disappeared. A couple of questions: Where's Gabe? He was there last week, and I didn't see him last night. And why was he there last week. And two: Darryl's ex-wife? What happened to that subplot? Did I miss something, or did it just trail off?
