Cougar Town 2×17 — “You’re Gonna Get It”: This episode was OK. I liked the bar trivia stuff the best, probably because Laurie has become my favorite character so it was good to see her put one over on Ellie and Grayson. But come on, there’s no way Travis could have been helping her. You get like 30 seconds, tops, to submit an answer in those games. That’s not enough time to be texting back and forth! And wouldn’t Ellie and Grayson have noticed her using her phone? She could have been checking Google for all they knew. (OK, I’m over-thinking this storyline by a mile, so I’ll stop now!)
I don’t understand why they keep pushing the Bobby-as-a-golf-pro angle when he obviously has problems that no true professional athlete could overcome. Seriously, I’m getting tired of his failed attempts to make a comeback. At this point, it would make more sense for him to get a more traditional job so he can get off the boat and into a decent apartment. I think he’d make a damn good salesman. I could totally see him selling plasma TVs and TV mounts in an electronics store, can’t you?
Body of Proof 1×06 — “Society Hill”:I liked seeing a little bit more of what Megan’s life was like before the accident. It’s got to hurt her more than she admits to have lost everything like that, so I appreciated how she was able to open up to her mom somewhat about her friends abandoning her and all that. The guy who plays the medical investigator really bugs me now. I think it might be the actor rather than the character. He’s just not very good, and it detracts from my enjoyment of the show. If he and the lab geek were replaced, I’d be very happy. As it is, I can see why this show is in danger of not getting renewed for a second season. Oh, well.
30 Rock 5×22 — “Everything Sunny All the Time Always”: WTF was that???? I don’t even know where to start with this one. Avery is now just gonna be a North Korean prisoner?? That’s how she’s going to be removed from Jack’s life? I know this show can be bizarre, but that’s one of the dumbest things they’ve done. And as much as I admire Condi Rice, I don’t think her guest spot worked out very well. Too bad, because a throwdown between her and Jack Donaghy could have been great — if it wasn’t piano vs. flute, of all things.
