Is it just us…

…or is this guy/frog/whatever-the-hell very stereotypically gay?

Ya’ll know that amelie and I have a love/hate relationship with Disney.  Disney is awesome, but then they’ll do something that makes my soul die, like making Tod and Copper not friends.  (It’s just not right, dammit!)  But we’ve ranted about that before.

Well, today I stumbled upon a trailer for their newest Disney animated princess movie:

They’re taking it from The Frog Prince story (except they’re calling it The Princess and the Frog–which totally doesn’t sound right, but whatever, Disney.) and Disney has decided that it’s about time we had a black princess, which I’m fine with.  But the instant I saw this trailer, I thought two things:

  1. Dude.  Who cares if the princess is black?  Fairy tale princesses are NOT ghetto.  And this princess is talking like she wants to be ghetto.  Princesses are trained and schooled and refined.
  2. That frog is so stereotypically gay it’s not even funny.  I mean, I know he’s supposed to be her Prince Charming, and they wear tights and capes and other clothes that would make Liberace jealous, but Prince Frog is trying too hard to play it straight. He probably stays in his castle dancing to Judy Garland records with his “best friend” Michigan J. Frog.

This movie seems doomed from the start.  A ghetto princess, a gay prince, and as amelie brought up to me, you KNOW people are going to bitch about them being an interracial couple.  (Even though, dude, he’s gay.  They’d totally be BFFs, not boyfriend/girlfriend.)  And in response to the interracial couple thing, we present you with  exhibit A:  Beauty and the Beast, and exhibit B:  The Little Mermaid.  What’s worse?  Beastiality or interracial dating?

But still.  That frog is totally gay.

Edit: After we wrote this, amelie said this in an e-mail.  I freaking love it: You know what I realized, editing that post? This is the worst Disney movie ever. It’s got homosexuality, beastiality, and an interracial couple. Now I kind of want to see it.

Edit again in amelie’s defense because she didn’t think anyone but kegger was going to read that: Not that there’s anything wrong with homosexuality or interracial couples. (You’re on your own, chicken lovers). It’s just all three in one movie…it’s a lot. Bold move, Disney.

Weekly Wrap-up

This isn’t a what we loved/what we hated list. I have a lot of hate for a certain show which is dead to me (DEAD TO ME FOREVER, and no, I don’t want to talk about it), and I wanted to focus on the happy. So this is a Weekly Wrap-Up of the stuff we liked, with a few criticisms thrown in, just because. –ab

TV:

The Office
amelie: I kind of adored this episode. It was light and fun and there was no real drama. I agree with Michael–Cafe Disco is a magical place. I think Erin, the new receptionist, is adorable. She fits in well with the Scranton crew without trying too hard. And she has fun in the office, you can tell. I still can’t figure out why Dwight had to take his shirt off to give Phyllis a horse massage, though…

Favorite Moment: Kelly and Andy’s dance-off.

kegger:  At the beginning of this episode, I was thinking, man, Michael’s REALLY having a hard time getting back into the groove of things at Dunder Mifflin.  But THEN, he invented Cafe Disco.  And then I was like, oh, Michael, you’re awesome.  Loved it!  [Completely Unrelated Side note:  Does anyone else think think that Ryan’s next issue is going to be an eating disorder?  Since he was all like, “I’ve discovered since becoming a temp again that food is the only thing I can control.”?  Thoughts?]

amelie: He’s totally going to get an eating disorder. And Kelly and Andy’s new friendship is going to exacerbate things.

How I Met Your Mother

amelie: Stella is not the mother. Let me say that one more time. Stella is not the mother. She’s integral to Ted finding the mother, but she ain’t it. $5 says I’m right. In other news, Barney is a man whore, and, oh yeah, Barney loves Robin.

I have to say, as much as I enjoyed this week’s episode (the non-linear explanation of Ted getting to that particular corner at that particular time was brilliant, vintage HIMYM funnage), I miss Lily so much. There was this gaping hole in the Intervention scene, and it hurt. Come back, Lilypad. The gang needs you. (Slightly off topic, but kegger, if you ever need a cheap gift for me, I wouldn’t say no to an Intervention banner.)

Favorite Moment: Marshall’s Venn diagram of Cecilia (people who are breaking my heart/people who are shaking my confidence daily. Oh, Cecilia. I’m down on my knees. From laughter.)

kegger:  I’m going to seriously be pissed if Stella is the mother (which she’s totally not) because I hold grudges and that bitch left Ted at the altar.  That’s all I have to say about that.  And omg, LOVE Marshall and his charts!  But yeah.  I, too, miss Lily.

Pushing Daisies

amelie: Man. Just, man. You know who sucks? ABC. ABC is a bunch of rat bastards from hell and I hope they suffer. I managed to get my hands on the final three episodes (I have kickass friends) and they were awesomely bittersweet. I appreciate Bryan Fuller and how he wrapped everything up, but I want more. There’s this rule of good writing: show, don’t tell. I know the constraints of a short season and getting the can made this difficult, but I want to SEE how it plays out. I mean, I’m glad I was told how it goes down, but it’s not the same. I’m really going to miss the Pie Hole and all its peeps.

I’m not complaining. I’m really not. I was satisfied and happy with how it ended. I’m just frustrated that it had to end at all, I guess.

kegger:  Haven’t seen it yet.  😦  One day….

Music

Metric, Fantasies

amelie: This is a fun, kind of mellow, kind of weird album, and I like it.
Favorite Song: “Twilight Galaxy”

kegger:  I freaking love this entire album.  It makes me bounce my head.
Favorite Songs:  “Blindness,” “Help I’m Alive,” and “Twilight Galaxy”

Yeah Yeah Yeah’s, It’s Blitz!

kegger:  I haven’t listened to it quite as much as I’ve listened to the Metric album, but I still love it so far.
Favorite Songs:  “Heads Will Roll” and “Hysteria”

amelie: I’ve been listening to this one, too, but I haven’t heard enough of it to have a favorite song.

The Clash, London Calling

amelie: I’ve been going through an old-school phase lately, and this has been on heavy rotation on my iPod. I really enjoy this album. I don’t have any concrete reason, I just think it’s awesome.
Favorite Song: “Lost in the Supermarket”

Books

amelie: I still haven’t read anything worth talking about. I really need to look into that.

kegger: I’m currently in a YA phase.  I just finished reading The Summoning by um… Kelley Armstrong, I think?  Not bad.  Very quick read (as in, I started and finished it on the same night).  I’m also reading Jesus for President, by Shane Clairborne.  It’s a very pretty book.  You should totally go look at it in a bookstore, because it’s pretty and artistic and fun.

Movies

Leatherheads

amelie: Eh. It was okay. John Krasinski is adorable, and George Clooney is still one of the most handsome men ever. But I felt like this movie was trying too hard. It wanted to capture the sparkle and fun of the Katharine Hepburn/Carey Grant movies like “Bringing Up Baby” and “Philadelphia Story”, but it failed spectacularly. The convoluted war story tied in with professional football…I didn’t get it. And, honestly, I’d rather watch Katharine Hepburn eat kitty litter than just about anything Renee Zellwegger has done lately. Um. Was that mean?

Zack and Miri Make a Porno

kegger:  It’s about what you’d expect, being a Kevin Smith movie and all.  But I DO have to say that while I’m a fan of Seth Rogen, he’s beginning to seem like the same character in every single movie he’s been in lately.  Anyway, it’s a pretty good movie.  Lots of boobs.  Lots of ass.  We even see a wang, and some balls.  The only thing I was slightly dissatisfied with was the ending.  It was a happy ending, but the whole point of the movie was that Zack and Miri were making a porno, right?  Well, I won’t ruin it, but I’ll just say that the movie seemed slightly unfinished.  But it was decent, and good for a laugh.

Quantum of Solace

kegger:  It was TOTALLY not a James Bond movie.  He only got one girl (he’s at LEAST supposed to bang two girls per movie!  That’s like, a rule or something!), he had NO cool, fancy gadgets, and he was dark and broody.  I’m sorry, but James Bond is NOT dark and broody.  He’s a man whore who likes cool gadgets and Aston Martin cars.  Jason Bourne is dark and broody.  Not James Bond.  But, if you pretend that it’s not a James Bond movie, it’s not bad, I guess.

The Day The Earth Stood Still

kegger:  (I know, I know, I’ve watched an assload of movies this week.  Sue me.  It was rainy, and I couldn’t go outside!)  Meh.  That’s all I have to say.  The movie was just meh.  First off, Keaun Reeve’s character is coming to earth to kill humanity because we’re killing the planet.  But then he goes and saves people and stuff.  Why, if you’re just going to off them, anyway?  It was stupid, and it didn’t add up.  And that’s all I have to say about that.

amelie: Where did you find time to watch all those movies?!

kegger: I watched ALL of those movies on Sunday afternoon.  You know, since it was raining all freaking day.  And also because we’d been sitting on 3 Netflix rentals for over a week.  So… yeah.  We just got rid of them all at once.

Weekly Wrap-Up

Fucking finally, right?

What we loved:
Television
Chuck:

amelie: CHUCK. A million, trillion, billionty times, I love Chuck. But more important than my love of Chuck is the fact that Casey loves Chuck (we already knew that Sarah loves Chuck. That’s not news.) He still hates being Team Chuck’s little fat kid, and I think that’s adorable. I want a Casey in my life. I have a feeling he’d kill spiders for me in a second.

kegger: CHUCK CHUCK CHUCK CHUCK!  I’m going to be so pissed if this show is cancelled.  And I flipping LOVE Casey and Awesome.  And Chuck.  And Sarah.  And hell.  Everyone else, too.  I could go on for about 15 minutes about Chuck, but I’m going to stop now. (Ahem.  If you haven’t seen Chuck yet, you should totally click on one of the bazillion hyperlinks I added and watch a few dozen episodes.)

The Office:
amelie:
Oh, The Office, how I’ve missed you. I haven’t really been feeling the love this season, but last night was brilliant: the return of awesome, competent Jim; Charles getting schooled in the ways of Dwight; the “idiot” ringtone; Ryan not being a total douchebag asshole…I could go on. But I won’t.

kegger: I loved Jim in this episode.  And yay, Charles is gone!  Finally!  I think.  And so awesome that instead of taking the $60,000, Michael got all of their jobs back.  And I hope Ryan keeps his “totally natural” blonde hair for a while, because every time I see it, it makes me giggle. Although I do have to say, I STILL don’t buy Angela crushing on Charles. I just don’t see it.

Party Down:

kegger: Okay, so I admit that I haven’t seen this week’s episode of Party Down yet, but I don’t care.  I flipping love this show, and if you don’t have Starz, you should totally watch it on Netflix.  The pilot ep was just okay.  After that, the show turned into all kinds of awesome.

amelie: I’m a week or so behind on Party Down, but I have loved every episode I’ve seen so far. Why aren’t you watching it?

Music

kegger: Missy Higgins–Okay, so the CD isn’t exactly new, but I just kind of discovered it on my iPod this week, and it’s mellow and great.  My two favorite songs are “Forgive Me” and “Warm Whispers.”

amelie: The Lonely Island–I’ve had Incredibad for a couple of weeks, and I still love it. It’s dirty and funny and ridiculous. My new favorite thing is to drive with the windows down and blast “I’m On a Boat” as loud as I can take it.

kegger: I’m on a boat, mothafucka!

amelie: Don’t you ever forget!

Books

kegger: I’m in a YA phase right now for some reason.  Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is definitely worth a read.  Based on the description on the inside flap, I was just, meh.  But then I read it and loved it.  I’m looking forward to the sequel.

amelie: I’m not reading anything worth talking about, so moving on.

What we hated:

Television:

amelie: NBC is On Notice for even considering canceling Chuck. I’m still so pissed at ABC for the Pushing Daisies fiasco that I refuse to watch Castle (or maybe I just forget that it’s on because my Mondays are already stacked with awesome shows. I’ll never tell.) Consider this a pre-empitive hate, which I am more than willing to turn into a love if NBC nuts up and does the right thing.

Movies:

kegger:House“–Whatever you do, don’t rent this.  It’s awful.  It’s horrible.  It can’t decide what it wants to be.  Does it want to be all creepy, or mystery-like, or ghosty, or WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON???!!!!  I mean… seriously.  Don’t watch it.  I was actually paying attention, and I couldn’t figure out what was going on.  I was all like, “Huh?  Why is chick like, drowning under a slab of ice in a closet?!?” and stuff.  Not to mention, you really shouldn’t name your movie House when there’s already a popular show named House.  AND, can I just say that movies really need to work on getting the South right?  The architecture for that house was so off.  And so were their accents.  Just because we’re from the South doesn’t mean we’re creepy inbred rednecks, y’all.  And if we WERE creepy inbred rednecks, we’d be living in trailer parks.  Not in mansions.  Maybe you should actually, I don’t know, VISIT Montgomery, Alabama and see what it’s actually like there before you start making movies about it.

amelie: Creepy Inbred Rednecks is so the name of my imaginary band. I wasn’t even aware this was a movie until you started griping about how much it sucks. No movies to hate on this week for me. Ooh–can I hate on the 30 seconds of “Twilight” you made me watch? Because I really hated it.

kegger: You can count the 30 seconds of “Twilight” that I made you watch.  They really were the worst 30 seconds of the entire show.  He was supposed to look like he wanted to EAT her (dirty!) when he first smelled her.  Not like he wanted to vomit.

amelie: Heh. Eat her.

Pee Ess: I have edited this stupid thing forty bajillion times, and the size is still all wonky. I call shenanigans. Sorry.

What we hate: Disney Edition

Y’all know kegger and I are virtually the same person. We watch the same TV, read the same books, listen to the same music. Liking the same things also means hating the same things. And here’s one thing we both hate: The Fox and the Hound.

amelie: This is the first movie that ever made me mad that I watched it. I was furious. I remember thinking, “That’s it? THAT’S how it ends? ARE YOU KIDDING ME, DISNEY?!” I mean, I loved the beginning. I loved Tod and Copper being cute and having fun and just being friends. And then. And then they grew up. They grew up and life sucked. Like real life. Hey, where’s my happy Disney ending, huh? I don’t watch Disney movies to be depressed or to learn about real life through fables and talking animals. I watch them for the hidden innuendos the FREAKING HAPPY ENDINGS. Tod and Copper are supposed to stay friends. They’re not supposed to hunt each other and hurt each other and almost die because of a freaking bear, gosh. So, what’s the lesson, Disney? That you can’t overcome your differences and be friends with people (or species) who believe different things and lead different lives? Awesome message, Disney. Just fantastic.

It was bad enough watching Bambi’s mother get killed. Now I get to live with the disappointment and disillusionment that a fox and a hound can’t be BFFs.

And that’s probably the most ridiculous sentence I’ve ever written.

kegger: You forgot when they freaking killed Mufasa.  I’ve decided that Disney secretly likes to torture us. I mean, think about it. They killed Bambi’s mom. They killed Simba’s dad. They turned poor, sweet little Tod and Copper into enemies. AND, in addition to making us cry and pissing us off, they also sneak in pervy little things into their movies. Like priests having woodies, Aladdin telling us to take off our clothes, and leaves spelling out “sex” as they blow away in the breeze. Disney is supposed to be wholesome and feel-good. I’m supposed to have the warm fuzzies when I get done watching a Disney movie. Right? But NO. Instead, I get parents getting killed, sweet little animals hating each other, and priests having woodies. I can tolerate Bambi and The Lion King. But The Fox and the Hound freaking pisses me off. Mermaids obviously don’t exist. Animals don’t speak. There aren’t really faeries that sprinkle sleeping dust on people while the princess is asleep. So WHY the hell did they have to make The Fox and the Hound turn into enemies??! I’m sure that’s what would happen in real life, but this movie isn’t REAL LIFE!  It’s a freaking Disney movie! Disney movies aren’t supposed to be realistic! So yeah. Definitely boycotting The effing Fox and the effing Hound.

amelie: The subliminal pervy stuff is kind of funny. That priest with a boner at Ariel’s wedding? Hi-freaking-larious. And I think it was Genie who said take off your clothes (although I don’t think that one is true. I certainly never heard it.) Bambi breaks my heart, but at least he and Thumper and Flower didn’t hate each other when they grew up. And come on, Flower is a freaking skunk. If anyone is going to get hated on, it’s Flower. The Fox and the Hound: crushing children’s dreams since 1981.

kegger: I LOVE the pervy stuff. Because on the inside, I’m still only twelve-years-old. That’s why I still watch Disney movies! But still. It’s a Disney movie. They aren’t supposed to have woodies in Disney movies! And yeah, Genie (or Aladdin, whatever. I THINK it’s Aladdin, but I can’t remember) TOTALLY says, “Good kids take off their clothes.”  I’ve heard it. Disney, of course, claims that he’s saying, “Good kitty, get up and go!”  But no. He totally doesn’t say that. And why would he whisper it if that’s what he was really saying? I don’t think so. This, by the way, totally makes me want to have a Disney movie day. So we can see/hear all of the Disney pervy moments.

And I’m in complete agreement.  If any Disney character were to lose friends because of what they were, it would be Flower.  Because Flower smells like asshole.  And no matter how awesome he is, no one would want to be around that.  Tod and Copper should have stayed friends.  And because they didn’t, Disney sucks ass.

Funniest.Thing.Ever. (Or funniest thing this week)

You already know that I love/hate Twilight.  This cracked.com version of Twilight made my Monday.

Twilight Movie Review

I’m probably going to go easy on the movie–mostly because I didn’t expect much from it to begin with, and therefore, I wasn’t disappointed with it. [amelie: Whereas I, had I gone to see it, would rip it to shreds because that’s fun and I’m evil.]

Basically, the movie is comparable to the book.  [amelie: so it’s really boring and filled with creepy relationships? Good to know.] Don’t get me wrong, I’m a closet fan of the book, [amelie: “closet fan” my ass. That’s like saying I’m a closet fan of The Office. You love it and you know you love it and I know you love it.] [kegger: I’m a closet fan.  Most people know I’ve READ the book.  Most don’t know I LOVED the book.  And the only person I really talk about the book to is you, amelie.] but when you look at it–and I mean HONESTLY look at it (for you fangirls out there that think Stephenie Meyer can do no wrong)–it’s not that well written, it’s not that exciting, and there really isn’t much of a plot [amelie: Welcome to the darkside. We know good books here].  Remember, this is coming from someone who LOVES the book even though I can’t understand why.  And while I’m an Edward fan, when you think about it, he’s kind of creepy.  1.  He’s freaking 100 and he’s in love with a 17 year old.  2.  He’s kind of a stalker–watching Bella while she’s sleeping and following her to Port Angeles and all.  [amelie: “kind of” a stalker? KIND OF? I just…he…and then she…No. This is not my review, so I’mma shut up now.] So really, with a book like Twilight, you can’t expect an Oscar winning movie, right?

Having said that, I wasn’t disappointed in the movie.  It’s exactly what I expected it to be.

Weekly Wrap-Up: A Mixed Bag

What we loved:
How I Met Your MotherNot a Father’s Day. Robin and Ted playing the angel and devil on Lily’s shoulder. Drunken Lily zooming around with a fire extinguisher and a rolling chair.

Chuck–Chuck and Casey’s hilarious, uncomfortable, and unhelpful lip smack. Did something else happen in that episode? We forget because we were laughing too hard.

Iron Man–Let’s ignore the fact that ameliebee is late to the party and celebrate the fact that she showed up at all. It was fun and entertaining and we both thought Robert Downey, Jr. (or as we like to call him, Jeffrey Dean Morgan) did a wonderful job as Tony Stark. Neither of us really felt Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, and we pegged John Malkovich Jeff Bridges as the bad guy the second his bald head popped up on the screen.

The Office–Drunk-off-his-ass Oscar. “Call her! Call her! No, don’t call her!” “Why won’t you do Andy?” Dear Office producer-type people: We need more Drunk Oscar. He’s our favorite flavor of Oscar.

What we loathed:
How I Met Your Mother–Another cab ride and still no Ranjit? Boo.

Pushing Daisies–To be precise, we loathed the total lack of Ned, Chuck, Emerson, and Olive for the second week in a row. ABC, if you cancel this show because you can’t be arsed to promote it, you deserve all the rotten pie that will surely be sent to you.

What we’re indifferent about:
Chuck–Jill. We don’t love her, we don’t hate her. Right now, we nothing her.

Why can’t Hollywood SUCCESSFULLY fake a Southern accent?

This has always been a pet peeve of mine.  Hollywood’s got the Boston accent down.  And the New York accent.  And the Midwest accent.  But Southern?  No.  Not even close.  They can’t seem to perfect the Southern accent–not even a little. [amelie: The quickest way to get me to stop watching a show? Bastardizie a Southern accent.]

Why?  It’s not that hard.  For most people, it’s just a light, subtle twang.  It’s not nearly as severe as they always try to make it.  I don’t get it.  Don’t they do research or something?  [amelie: Why do research when what they’ve been doing for years is working SO WELL? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.] Why can’t they like, take a trip down here and listen to people talk for a few days or something?  Because whatever they’re doing to fake the Southern accent isn’t working. [amelie: And for the record, a Mississippi accent is totally different from a Louisiana accent, which is totally different from a Texas accent. In case you were wondering.]

Indiana Jones and the Four Pound Crystal Skull

Yesterday, Puddle and I went to see the new Indiana Jones flick.  Lots of people have been expecting this movie to be the biggest hit of the summer.  After seeing it, I have to say that I REALLY wish that George Lucas had just let things be.  Why couldn’t it have ended with The Last Crusade?  

When I walked out of the movie theater, I was disappointed.  The more I have time to think about it, though, the more annoyed I got with the movie.  I thought Lucas was an anal perfectionist. And if he is, what the hell happened to this movie?  There were so many inconsistencies that it got kind of ridiculous.  

If you don’t want to be spoiled, don’t read any further.  

  1. The crystal skull was obviously plastic.  It looked like a cheap prop.  Plastic on the outside, tin foil on the inside.  Which, I’m sure it was, but shouldn’t they have tried a little harder?  A crystal skull that big would have weighted a good 40 pounds, at least.  It was huge!  But throughout the entire movie, Indiana and Oxley and everyone else carry it around like it weighs 4 pounds.  They don’t even TRY to make it appear heavy.  
  2. The skull is magnetic.  Putting a thin piece of fabric on top of it would not make it unmagnetic.  It seemed like the skull was only magnetic when it was convenient.  Sometimes it didn’t affect metal around it at all.  Other times, it did.  It wasn’t consistent.  
  3. Okay, so the aliens were archaeologists and they collected an assload of things from all over the world?  Tons and tons of stuff, from every culture.  Okay… so why did they destroy everything that they collected when their flying saucer took off?  What was the point of spending all of that time accumulating everything if they were just going to destroy it?  It seemed a bit pointless.  
  4. Also, why the heck did the aliens turn into one person at the end?  I don’t get it.  What was the point?  I DON’T GET IT!  
  5. So if you had to have the crystal skull to get into the room with all of the other crystal skulls, how did the Spanish Conquistador get in the room to steal the skull in the first place???  
  6. Seriously–I thought Lucas was a perfectionist.  How did he miss all of these inconsistencies???  I mean, they were so obvious!  How did he miss them?!?!?  Inconsistencies in movies/television shows are one of my biggest pet peeves!  
  7. Was it just me, or was Harrison Ford not quite as Indiana Jones-ish this time?  It just didn’t feel like the others.  
  8. Having Mudd (or was it Mutt?  I can’t remember.  Anyway, whatever.)  fly through the jungle on vines like Tarzan was a little ridiculous.  And why did the monkeys only attack the Communists?  
I think that George Lucas just needs to retire.  Was anybody truly happy with the prequel Star Wars movies?  (I’m not a Star Wars fan myself, so I can’t really talk, but I’ve never heard avid fans say good things about those movies.  They always criticize them.)  And now he’s ruined Indiana Jones.  I think he should just call it a day.  He’s loaded and he’s got a few decent films under his bet.  He should just retire.  It doesn’t seem like he’s done much worth mentioning in the last ten years or so.  
So for those of you who haven’t seen Indiana Jones yet, I’d say wait and Netflix it.  It’s kind of a disappointment.  But maybe that’s just me.

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.]

Doctor Who–spoilers after the jump
