Thursday Night TV Open Thread

By Kelly Conaboy / October 14, 2011 - 11:45 am

Ok, so. “Cards on the table” – Britta, I wasn’t able to watch all of the shows last night. I’m sorry! I’m sorry and no one is more sorry than I am. But I did watch Community and Parks and Recreation which, let’s be honest, are the best ones if we refuse to acknowledge the existence of It’s Always Sunny, which we won’t, so they’re two of the three best ones. OK? Ok, so here we are, all on the same confusingly worded page. Community was the best episode of this season so far, in my opinion. It was very much a “second season”-y episode and it was really, really great. Joel McHale was looking VERY good, and when he and Annie made out? Give me a break. Also I guess the jokes were funny. (The jokes were very funny and the separate timeline plot was excellent — glad to see Community back doing what it’s supposed to be doing! Weird stuff!) Parks and Recreation was very good, too. It was NOT the best episode of the season, but not every episode of every TV show can be the best episode of that TV show’s season. “Feels really good to have a bunch of little boys be super into me” was great. So was when Aziz asked Adam Scott, “Why so serious?” Do you think Adam Scott is going to leave Pawnee and then be in a semi long-distance relationship with Leslie? Would that even work with the logic of the show? Is the way I mix real names with character names kind of confusing? How great was Whitney? GUYS, LET ME KNOW!
