Weekly Wrap-Up

Here are our thoughts on the week. It’s pretty heavy on the television. Keg and I are still trying to decompress from crazy (cough*phone-washing*cough) weekends.

Television:
The Office

amelie: Dude. Dude. There’s a lot to process with this episode, and when I’m more coherent, I’ll post a better analysis of it. But for now, here are my fangirl thoughts: Best office party ever. Seriously. I want Phyllis to plan my parties. Jim was all kinds of on fire with closing the big deal, giving Michael sound relationship advice, gearing up to propose to Pam, and leaving hilarious voicemails to a now-jailed Ryan. Oh, how the mighty have fallen, Mr. Howard. Snerk. Kevin-is-retarded has got to be the best running gag on the show in a long time. I hope they keep that up.

kegger: Oh holy geeze that was without a doubt the most exciting hour of television that I’ve seen since the writer’s strike ended! Ryan got arrested! DWIGHT AND ANGELA!!!!! DWIGHT AND ANGELA DOING IT IN THE OFFICE!!! They were the LAST people I expected to see doing the nasty in the workplace. I’m still a little in shock!!! And while I was initially pissed about Andy ruining Jim’s moment, I’m okay with it now as long as they get engaged eventually. Eventually being sooner rather than later. And JAN’S PREGNANT! At first, when she told Michael that it wasn’t his, I said, “OHMYGOSH IT’S HUNTER’S!”

amelie: Yeah, you did. I thought you were a genius. I might have to revoke that status.

kegger: But now I’m not so sure. I don’t think she went to a sperm bank, though. I mean, what would be the point of doing that while she was still dating Michael? So, my current running theories is that it’s either Michael’s and she’s just not telling him, or that it’s Hunter’s. But I think it might be Michael’s. And Toby’s replacement is awesome!

amelie: I think it’s Michael’s, too. Jan is masterful at lying to herself. Switching gears a little, check out the first deleted scene. A Meredith-Dwight alliance is the work of the devil. Question: if the devil were to explode and evil were gone forever, what sort of party would you have?

[amelie: kegger doesn’t watch the next two shows, but I do, so here is my take on Reaper and Bones:

Reaper: I only saw the last five minutes, so all I know is Sam’s the son of the Devil! I knew it had to be something like that. I can’t wait to see how this pans out, and since Reaper got a pick up from the CW (as a midseason show, but still–better than nothing at all), I’ll get some closure on this.

Bones: Holy shit. Booth got shot, y’all! If this were Torchwood or Doctor Who or Heroes, I’d be worried that Booth was really dead, but it’s not, so I’m not. I do hope that he isn’t too badly hurt. And I’ve got to say that watching Bones plug Fat Pam in the throat was totally ruthless and awesome. She is definitely Max Keenan’s daughter.]
