I laughed at both of them, but I can't remember specifics, other than Kevin spitting out the broccoli. I look forward to rewatching them both.

Jan 21st 2011

At Leslie smashing her hand into Ron's face to show him her goosebumps? Or at Rob Lowe turning out not to be mindless, but rather being very much aware of his constant positive nature, and immediately answering why?

I remember these moments, but not laughing at them.

I laughed at Kevin and the broccoli.

I'm not saying Community or P&R were bad. I thought both were good. I just thought that TO outshone both of them, in my mind.

The Michael-Holly stuff just drags it all down for me. Whoever said they waited too long is right. I don't care anymore.

Jan 21st 2011

I liked when Kelly yelled at them to stop doing their E.T. impressions.

I also thought Pam was a little out of character, too excitable.

Jan 21st 2011

Meh - it was okay. Not the worst ep but below average.

I've finally figured out why I can't get that excited about the whole Michael/Holly arc like I was about Jim and Pam. (Other than you could really relate to Jim and Pam because they're normalish and not caricatures.) With Jim and Pam, the arc was revealed in tiny segments, and much, much more by showing rather than "telling." With Michael and Holly, all they do is talk and tell rather than show. I'm tired of Michael talking talking talking about it. I know that is partly because of the nature of Michael's character, but it puts me off nevertheless.

I felt far more for MIchael in whatever ep it was where he was forced to eat a sandwich for lunch alone in his office, and he mentioned it was just like dinner. It's a small thing but it makes you realize how lonely Michael is, and affected me much more than all the yapping about it.

I thought it was wonderful that the most bizarre character (Creed) was the one who reacted the most normally to Michael's nonsense, and didn't forgive him easily.

Oh, and "old lady porn" line was funny.

I gave Parks and Rec a second chance last night after so many folks here raved about it (I'd watched a couple eps in the beginning and wasn't interested). I'm still not interested - don't get the appeal. Didn't laugh, didn't care.

That's your fault for choosing an Andy-lite episode.

I liked when Kelly yelled at them to stop doing their E.T. impressions.

I was so grateful for that. My fingers were in my ears during that and it still couldn't stop annoying me. Kelly rescued me. I love Kelly. I attempted Parks and Rec for the 3rd or 4th time tonight but I was too sleepy to finish. I did enjoy Rob Lowe. I still have to give it a real chance because of Pratt in a pit from a previous season.

I was late for the cold open already which proved to be more detrimental for me when there was no Jim for the rest of the episode. I guess after all these years I still heart Jim.

Die, Micheal and Holly, Die, I mean, die micheal and holly, die.

I agree with the meh episode rating, but I've been enjoying this season so they can't all be winners. The highlight for me this episode and this season has been Kevin for some reason. "But you'er Micheal Frikin' Scott".

I really enjoy Erin.

Die, Micheal and Holly, Die, I mean, die micheal and holly, die.

A little harsh, but I agree completely. If this was the end of S5 I might care what happens.

After rewatching this episode during summer repeats, I revise my opinion down to bleh. There really wasn't anything going on in this episode that I cared about. And then it got stupid.

Jan 21st 2011

I want to see how they exit Michael. I will care that he and Holly end up together, and I will care how they do it. Regardless of how I agree with many of you that I don't care about Michael and Holly as much as I did orginally.

This, this this. Perfectly said, sir D.

I wish the Scranton Strangler would play a part, but it seems like they killed that avenue.

Jan 21st 2011

You mean, you want the Scranton Strangler to kill Michael? Or that Michael would be the Strangler?

But he's gone. He's already in jail. Dwight and those night guys got him.

Jan 21st 2011

I did like that his group was SOO ridiculous, even Dwight was ashamed.

Jan 21st 2011

I liked all the teenagers throwing stuff and mocking Dwight. The Guardian Angels are gigantic tools so I enjoyed the open.

Did everyone else know that the Scranton Strangler was based on an actual strangler?

A little harsh,

Not really. A Simpson's quote is always funny.

Jan 21st 2011

I thought it was pretty good, but not great. I also agree with the comment about how the copious amounts of verbal commentary over the Michael-Holly relationship does nothing to advance our investment.

Jan 21st 2011

Heh. Copious.

Jan 21st 2011

TWSS.
