This Week In Comedy Open Thread

BILLY ON THE SHOW! Billy Eichner’s “Craig” was the only Eagleton doppleganger left in the “maybe” column at the conclusion of last night’s episode, so I hope that means that he will be back next week, and then the week after, and then every episode until the show is dead. Gimme that #CRAIG. It was the second week in a row featuring an unbearable Leslie acting clearly in the wrong, which should serve to balance out her too-good-to-be-true wins, but for me just paints her as a complete lunatic. Get that lunatic out of office! And burn Pawnee to the ground while you’re at it, it seems disgusting! SAVE CRAIG! Sam Elliott was a treat. June Diane Raphael’s Tynnyfer was a treat, as was April’s Tynnyfer-like personality change. I can’t wait for Chris and Ann to move somewhere else, no one should live in Pawnee. (It seems disgusting! Again!) Aside from how I honestly do think Leslie’s personality swings should be kept more in check, it was an enjoyable episode. That show is pretty much always very enjoyable. #Craig. Speaking of enjoyable episodes, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia celebrated their 100th episode this past week, and it was also enjoyable! It showed each member of the gang’s dream scenario in getting out of a robbery at a local convenience store, each featuring what we’ve come to know as the characters’ (often disturbing) hopes and fears. Charlie’s Ratatouille-meets-Up Pixar dream — which showed him saving the waitress from the robber, making her his bride (as swarm of rats construct her wedding dress), having a bunch of children (little waitresses and little janitors), growing old, and being by her bedside when she died, left alone to float away in his Up balloon house — was legitimately sweet and touching, and even funnier for it. And the final beat, when they all came to and decided to also rob the store and run away? Get out of town. Very good. Let’s take a jump and then talk about other shows.

I forgot to talk about Bob’s Burgers last week, which is nuts. TO CATCH UP: It continues to be one of the best shows. The Halloween episode this past Sunday was great. Millie’s contrast with Louise was great. All of the smaller characters were great. Bob and Linda going trick-or-treating in the costume and being found out was great. Great show! What else? New Girl — can you imagine if you had a best friend and roommate who was actively, and nearly successfully, trying to mess with your relationship? Especially if you were Nick and had nearly nothing else going well in your life?! Especially after, if you were Jess, he had just cheated on YOUR best friend and broke her heart? CAN YOU IMAGINE IF YOU WERE WINSTON AND KEPT BEING THROWN WEIRD SIDE-PLOTS THAT DON’T ADVANCE YOUR CHARACTER’S STORY?! Otherwise it was a very funny episode and I liked it. LOL. I especially like how Jess doesn’t act like a weird child about sex stuff anymore. NEXT. I finally watched The Michael J. Fox Show. It’s not bad! And it is so much better than those two shows that come between it and Parks and Recreation! Brooklyn Nine-Nine had what I think was its weakest episode. (PS: Hi Waitress!) The Mindy Project was weird and has lost the footing it had seemed to have gained in its first episodes. The League, as usually, was a bit much for me. BUT WHAT DID YOU THINK?!
