Happy News About The Office!

With every dose of sad news, there's gotta be some happiness, no? The Office Tally is reporting that The Office will return on March 14, a full three weeks before April 4! How awesome is that? Instead of April 4, it's March 14! Earlier! Soon there will be more episodes! Yay! This is great! Thank you, NBC! Thank you, Obama!

Sad News About the 2013 DFTBA Tourney

The 2013 DFTBA Tournament has been postponed due to a snow-covered court. I plan on shoveling it ASAP. However, the finish of it will be pushed into early April. But that's okay because that means it lasts longer!

If Famous Movies Were About Sports

The Sports Pickle has made famous movie posters that are about sports instead. They're extremely hilarious. Hard to choose a favorite, but when I did, I made it pictured. Hard to choose between BOSH, S.C, and Lakers Metaphor. Check 'em out at Sports Pickle, haha!

Monsters University Class of 2013

Teaser posters and Student ID cards were released for the sure-to-be-awesome upcoming film, Monsters University! The two pictured are Mike and Sulley, but you can also check out the returning Randall and new characters, Art, Don Carlton, Dean Hardscrabble, Scott Squibbles, and Terri and Terry Perry at the Total Film website! Neat!

Ivory & Ivory

Stephen Colbert visited Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in the wake of their four-year anniversary about a week ago. What commenced was a great tune, that's sure to be on Fallon's next album. Ivory & Ivory. It is beyond great.

Here's the Patriots:

Check them all out at Dave's Art Locker. Nicely done, Dave Rappoccio!

Where Did They Lose Their Way?

I used to love the Kid's Choice Awards, but somewhere along the way, things changed and it's just not right anymore. However, they are doing it again in 2013 with Josh Duhamel hosting. You can vote at the Nickelodeon website. Notice that Tebow is once again nominated for Favorite Male Athlete. If this was any other athlete, I'd probably be infuriated, a la Shaun White or Alex Rodriguez because they don't do anything, but get nominated. (B-t-dubs, White is nominated. Why?) This past season, Tebow didn't do much, but got nominated. I'm not complaining though, because A: he won it last year and B: he's Tim Tebow. Yep. I took a Kid's Choice Awards post and turned it into Tim Tebow. You know how I be.

Grown Ups 2 Teaser Poster

I remember when I was nervous if this would even happen. I'm glad that it is! I expect that next we'll see the official primary poster and then a teaser trailer and then two or three full length trailers and then the film! I can't wait! July 12, 2013!

Best Beach Awards 2013

A taste of summer on this bleak winter day. Sadly, York Beach didn't make the cut, but Hyannis, MA did! And it's pictured. So is Royal Duvai Island, Fiji! Travel Channel has polls for many different categories of beaches. You can vote for 2013's Best Party Beach, Best Family Beach, Best Romantic Beach, Sexiest Beach, Best Beach Bar, Best Beach You Haven't Heard of Yet, Best Beach for Adventure, Best Exotic Beach, Best Beach Boardwalks, Best Overall Beach.

The 2013 DFTBA Bracket!

The time has finally come! In a mere FOUR days, the 2013 DFTBA Tourney will be underway! Here is the official bracket with all of the seedings! Tomorrow, we get the rosters for each team. What a wonderful time!

Miracle Three

Obviously, you know I am a Gator fan and an SEC fan. This film looks very interesting and awesome to me. It's called SEC Storied: Miracle 3. It's about a tornado that rocks the SEC basketball tournament. This really looks so cool. Count me in for March 3!

I'm Proud of You, Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow was slated to speak at a Dallas church. Okay, that's fine, nothing out of the ordinary. Tebow is a devout Christian, after all. However, the pastor at this church is anti-gay and disrespectful towards other religions. The church was labeled as a hate church. Tebow then learned about this pastor and withdrew from speaking. Thank you for these four tweets, Tim Tebow. I may be an atheist, but we all can live in harmony. You da man.

CSI Mass 2: Journey to Plum Forest

THAT'S RIGHT! IT SAYS CSI MASS 2! 2! TWO! The long-awaited sequel to CSI: Mass is finally here! You can watch the original by clicking on the following two words: CSI Mass. We all know that everyone adored the film made for science class. Now, enjoy the second one made just for fun! In the psychological, horror thriller, the story of investigations and unknown killers continues in the sequel to the film that started it all, CSI Mass.

First sequel we ever did and it's beautiful.

David Spade for Eagle Reverse Mortgages

It's gotten kind of sad to see Henry Winkler on the mortgage and medication commercials over on TV Land. Luckily, we have David Spade to poke fun at it for us. Funny or Die, you've done it again.

9 Putts. 1 Hole.

Where was this on the Sportscenter Top Plays? Wouldn't matter, though. Jadeveon Clowney's going to go forever. Anyway, check out this awesome golf play.

A Small Dose of The Office on an Office-Less Day

Due to the hour-long Parks and Recreation yesterday, there was no new episode of The Office. Unfortunately, we found out that there will not be a new episode of The Office until APRIL FREAKIN' FOURTH. How do they expect me to wait SIX WEEKS until I get my fill? I mean, granted when it does return, we'll get each episode without a week of interruption. Just straight on through to the finale. There's eight half-hours left. That means there's seven weeks because of the hour-long finale. Maybe we'll get some classic episodes or bits of the documentary on NBC Thursdays at 9:00 from now until April 4. That's another thing. What the hell, NBC? I stay loyal to you when your ratings are low or when you make a comeback. Then you go and postpone Community to February, cancel The Event and delay The Office. Come on, Greenblatt! Anyway, here's what I was going to provide on this Office-less day. Some facts, tidbits, hints and previews of what's to come on the last lap of The Office.

  • Michael Imperioli will play Sensei Billy, Dwight's new rival, on an episode in the spring.
  • Shooting for The Office will end on March 14. By the math provided by Greg Daniels, the shooting for the series finale will begin on March 6. IT'S ALL HAPPENING SO FAST!!!!!!!!!
  • Roseanne Barr will guest star as Carla Fern, a talent agent who tries to help Andy realize his true dream.
  • Angela Kinsey says there will be a big shake-up in Angela's life.
  • We will begin to see the characters viewing the documentary and there may be a breakout star, or two, teased Kinsey.
  • Brian Baumgartner said that, "if things go the way I think they're going with Kevin, I'll be pleased."
  • Creed has pushed Greg Daniels to have a connection to the Scranton Strangler.
  • Ken Kwapis, Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak will all be returning for The Office finale. I bet Steve Carrel will too.
  • One version of The Farm has Angela visiting Schrute Farms with Dwight, the rest of the cast, and the Schrute clan. One version does not contain Angela.
  • Rainn Wilson tweeted that "just got out of a meeting with The Office writers. The second half of the season is going to explode your TVs!" Bodes well.
  • Rainn Wilson also said the following, "Part of the ending is not only going to be resolving the characters and seeing what's going on in their lives, but also the airing of the documentary. That's going to happen in the last six or eight episodes. The characters get to watch themselves in the documentary. They'll probably be documented watching it."
Yeah this is gonna be good. If October 19 is February 7, then this means that February 28 is now April 4. March will be TOUGH.

Alison Brie Freestyles

On Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, one of the greatest hosts of all time was paired with an actress from one of the smartest, best television shows we've ever seen. Then, Annie free-styled. This is the magic that happens on Late Night.

The Size of the Universe

The Universe made possible by Number Sleuth

You start at the hydrogen atom's proton nucleus. It is 0.00000000000000017 meters in diameter. Zoom out. The measles virus is 0.000000022 meters in diameter. Zoom out. Grain of salt is 0.00005 meters in diameter. Zoom out again. The Monarch butterfly is 0.1 meters in length. Keep zooming out. The average human male. 1.83 meters tall. Zoom out further. Blue whale. 30 meters long. Keep zooming. Eiffel Tower is 324 meters tall. Zoom out further. Washington DC is 16,000 meters long on each side. Zoom out once more. Australia is 3,999,000 meters in perimeter. Zoom out further. Earth is 12,800,000 meters in diameter. Zoom out even further. All the way until you reach the largest known thing in the entire universe. This is the observable universe. 880,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 meters in diameter. This is the wondrous world we live in. We are so minuscule. The size and magnitude is unimaginable. What a wondrous universe. Infinite possibilities. Never-ending discoveries. It's incredible.

Dustin Pedroia's On Twitter

Now, all five of my reigning Top Five best people are on Twitter. @jimmyfallon, @jasonmraz, @TimTebow, @AdamRichman and now, at long last, @15lasershow! Yes, Dustin Pedroia is now on Twitter. It's sure to be a hoot. Here are a few Tweet examples:

The first Muddy Chicken Tweet:

What a great follow he is sure to be! I am content with my life, now. Yes. Also, he replaced his egg picture with the Arizona State (his college) pitchfork, as pictured above. 28K followers already, his name on Twitter is DP and his bio is Red Sox 2nd baseman. Plus, he's verified! Laser Show! Ahhh!

My Wipeout Replica Run

Today, courtesy of my gracious father, I embarked, with my sister, to Abington, MA to a place called Gravity. It was an obstacle course, set up like the Wipeout course. It was great fun, but also painful! Take a look at my run, filled with cringe-worthy moments and humorous commentary from John Anderson and Henson:

You can also enjoy my sister's run, where her hair gets stuck and more commentary:

It was pretty good! No 'Where's the Pole' moments. Check it off the bucket list!

Dustin Pedroia Sets Indoor Baggo Record

He set the record and finished in third place overall with 13 points. He just missed first place! He's skilled in every sport, game or any kind of competition, apparently. And I like it.

Blueprint to the Next Great Red Sox Team

Let's not dwell on the Sports Illustrated article by Terry Francona. Instead, let us look towards more positive things. A brighter future. One filled with laser shows, new owners and a World Series ring. WEEI has the blueprint to the next great Sox team. Let's recapture the magic of 2004 and 2007!

  1. Self-Examination
  2. Lessons Learned
  3. The Manager
  4. There is a Core Place (Pedroia Section)
  5. Losing the Battle for Strike Zone Supremacy
  6. Depth over Brand Names: Trade Dollars for Years
  7. Less Corner-Cutting
  8. More Risk-Averse Behavior
  9. Makeup and Clubhouse Culture
  10. Preserve Depth in the Upper Levels
  11. Defense
  12. Act Decisively, Even at Some Potential Cost
  13. Denouement: The Great Unknown
Simple, right? Read more in-depth about each step of the rebuilding process at WEEI's website.

Ray Lewis Saturday Night Live Skit

Sorry I'm a tad late on this. It's still humorous 16 days later, though. Ray Lewis gets parodied! Ascend into heaven is the best part. God, I hate that man. Hah. God, I hate that man. I bet if God exists, he does to. Anyway, here's the video:

I still prefer Tebow and Jesus, but Ray and God isn't bad either. Also, as an added bonus, you can check out NESN's Top Ten Saturday Night Live Sports Spoofs! Yay...

Jason Ritter Leaves NBC

The Class, The Event, Parenthood. Jason Ritter had quite the good run with NBC, but he's moving on. He's rediscovering comedies! That'll be good! No more drama surrounding the various characters of Ritter. We can just laugh alongside him. He will play Gavin in the FOX pilot, Friends and Family. It's all about how friends and family are the best support and how it's tough to make a long-distance relationship work. Should be good!

Re-Sign Welker!

The recent news about Patriots receiver, Wes Welker, has got me worried that he won't be in New England next season. Why doesn't Robert Kraft just re-sign him already? Whatever it takes, man! Wes Welker has been an outstanding play-maker for the Patriots since 2007. He has been a key piece of all of New England's playoff and Super Bowl runs since that time. He is an asset and deserves to be rewarded for his six years of tough play and loyalty. That's why I have made this petition to re-sign Welker! It's a good cause.

Disney Junior - Live on Stage: Revamped!

At once it was Playhouse Disney Live on Stage and it consisted of The Book of Pooh, Flat Stanley, Rollie Pollie Ollie and Bear in the Big Blue House, but as shows come in and out, the live show evolves. It will now consist of Sofia the First, Doc McStuffins and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Odd. Makes me miss what it once was, but the tides of change roll in eventually, no? All good things must come to an end, right Brett Favre?

Billy on the Street Ringtones

Christmas Tomorrow, Elena's Metrocard and even the theme song! Billy Eichner and his Fuse game show have ringtones! They're all awesome. I don't know how anyone could ever choose! Check them all out at the Billy on the Street website!

First Bracketology by Dave of 2013

With March Madness starting exactly one month from today, I figured it's time to release my first Bracketology of the 2013 NCAA Men's season! Here are the specific categories:

Number One Seeds
Miami (FL)

Last Four In
Louisiana Tech
Saint Louis

First Four Out
Ole Miss
Indiana State

I wonder how it will change? Love the brackety time of year!

Greatest Athlete of All Time Enters Bracket Mode

Back in October I posted about this thing that ESPN and Sport Science was doing to find the greatest athlete of all-time. They had five or so nominees for each sport and then we voted until February 17 on who should win each sport's best. Now, that's all settled and we're in bracket mode! I'm voting everyday and rooting for Roger Federer. How about you? I bet it'll be Jordan, though. The sixteen finalists are Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Michael Phelps, Anderson Silva, Muhammad Ali, Mark Allen, Bo Jackson, Roger Federer, Willie Mays, Jackie Robinson, Pele, Tony Hawk, Carl Lewis, Wayne Gretzky, Jim Brown and Dale Earndhart Sr.

This Is The End Looks Interesting

Before Identity Thief, there was a preview for this film, This Is The End.

I had never heard of this before, but I like the concept of the celebrities playing fictional versions of themselves. Plus, it's got an all-star comedy cast of James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Michael Cera, Emma Watson, Jason Segel, David Krumholtz, Paul Rudd, Mindy Kaling, Martin Starr, Kevin Hart, Rihanna, Backstreet Boys and Aziz Ansari. This film has great potential to be hilarious.

Top Five Dunks of All-Star Saturday Night 2013

Saturday Night is always the best NBA All-Star Weekend evening. Celebrity game's pretty good. Kevin Hart and Usain Bolt put on a show. The All-Star game is always intriguing, but Saturday is the best night. A whole new format was ushered in, also! The newly sponsored Sears Shooting Stars was won by Team Bosh. Damian Lillard took the Skills Competition. Kyrie Irving captured the Three Point Contest. The dunk contest was won by Terrence Ross. He got my vote despite an earlier prediction of James White. Anyway, without further ado, here are my top five dunks of the 2013 contest:






Identity Thief

I saw this movie today and have to say that it was quite the funny film. Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy were both excellent in it. Eric Stonestreet also was quite the character as Big Chuck. Can't go wrong with Ellie Kemper, either. I enjoyed the film. I'll give it seven and a half out of ten stars. No. Eight stars. It was pretty quality, I reccomend it. The plot is basically what you'd assume it to be and can judge from the commercials.

SportsNation Awesomest Dude Competition

Five players remain in the Facebook vote on the SportsNation page. You can vote at that link, by the way. Those players are Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Blake Griffin and James Harden. My vote was for Curry, but I won't mind if you go with Blake, either. You don't even have to vote, I just thought I'd point it out. Always like this type of thing.

Moving On Review


  • Oh my god. I struggled with this episode. More on that later.
  • David Wallace was quite angry. I'm surprised that he did not fire Andy, but I can understand why. Thin ice, though.
  • Andy seemed a lot like Michael in their way of dealing with David Wallace.
  • I don't know why, but some of the scenes when people cry are some of the funniest. Like Dwight in the Dinner Party or Andy in Moving On.
  • I wonder if the Michael Scott Paper Company was on Pam's resume.
  • Stanley's getting weird in this final season. Maybe he's just generally happier without Michael. I still love him.
  • When Pam, Dwight and Angela all left and Andy struggled to get them back, but they brought up the boat trip, you can just tell he's not happy there. Even though Wallace spared him, I don't think Andy's around for long.
  • Andy is really hard to watch, though. I like happier, peppy, kind Andy more.
  • Darryl, Clark, Kevin, Toby, Plop. And that set the stage for some funny reactions from Pete. Aka, Plop.
  • "Team Halpert, okay? You're gonna crush it." Ah, yes. Like Pam says later on, "Quick on your feet. I remember you." I remember that Jim, too. Hope he comes back.
  • Andy did stop himself when he was saying that he was going to fire Pete and Erin. Potential that he still has kind Andy in there somewhere?
  • Gotta love that Mark manager guy. "Don't let Jamie Foxx kill me. DJANGOOOOO!" and "They call me Marky Mark because we are one funky bunch!" Greg Odenkirk did a SPOT-ON Michael Scott impression. That was, honestly, one of the best parts of the episode.
  • Plus, Pam actually mentioned Michael Scott! First Michael mention since Season 8, Episode 1. Finally! I miss Michael. "Oh my god. He's Michael Scott."
  • "My whole life is a booger bubble."
  • The whole thing with Aunt Shirley is just hilarious. Angela is awesome. Dwight is in old form. I love the Schrute family.
  • George Howard Skub. We finally know who the Scranton Strangler is. Or is it Skub?
  • That moment when Pete says, "is it?" I immediately sat up straighter and watched intently as I knew what was happening. Yes. It was the return of Gabe. I gasped loudly.
  • Love Gabe's desk.
  • Hahaha, I love how Toby was strangled. Second time in a neck brace on the show for Flenderson. I was hoping the Strangler would be Devon from season two or Gabe, himself. Ah, well. Big lead-up for Toby getting strangled. What can you do? Yes, it was Skub.
  • "Prettiest girl gets the stink sack!"
  • Dwight, you do not have 80 or 90 years left. Or do you? Are you Kenneth's German counterpart?
  • "We have spent too much of our lives ignoring the fact that we are meant to be together." Dwight sums up his relationship with Angela perfectly. They do belong together. We'll see how it plays out.
  • Gabe is the squawk of an ugly pelican.
  • Pam and Jim rediscovered what they once were at that dinner. Then, it just sinks when Pam likes their life in Scranton and Jim has started a business in Philly. We can assume that the fact that in season three, Jim chose Pam over New York to come up again. The only question is this. Will Pam choose Jim over Scranton or will Jim choose Pam over Philadelphia? Guess we'll find out.
  • Didn't understand Oscar's sit-up thing.
  • I DO UNDERSTAND THAT LAST PART! I was shaking, shivering, sweating and struggling after I saw that. It's just so very surreal. The beginning of the end is what that symbolizes. The Office: An American Workplace. It's far from average. I knew it would happen, but can't believe it. Wow. That was so awesome. I think I'm the only one who cares though. No one else really expressed an interest.

Hedo Turkoglu...Come On, Man

Turkoglu has consistently been one of my top five favorite basketball players because of four big reasons:

  1. He's a Good Guy
  2. I Have a Shoe Signed by Him Gifted to Me by My Cousins During the 2009 Finals
  3. He Was on the First Basketball Card I Ever Found
  4. He's On My Favorite Team, the Orlando Magic
I was upset when he was traded to Toronto and then Phoenix, but happy when he went back to Orlando. Now, I'm upset again. Turkoglu was suspended 20 games for violating the NBA's substance abuse policy. I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt because he owned up to it and said that he did not know it was illegal. I assume he used it to heal from his injury quickly. But still. Come on, man.

Farewell, Glenn Ordway

I always go back and forth between WEEI and 98.5 The Sports Hub. When I next go back to WEEI and listen to The Big Show, Ordway will not be hosting with Michael Holley. He was fired by WEEI due to declining ratings for The Big Show. He won't ever do the Whiner Line again. It's too bad.

Happy Valentine's Day!

It's the fourth big holiday of 2013! What's that? You don't know the big holidays of 2013? Oh my god. Now I have something to write about for Valentine's Day other than Happy Valentine's Day because, to be honest, I was only going to write that. Anyway, here are the big holidays of each year:

New Year's
Martin Luther King Day
Groundhog Day
Valentine's Day
Leap Day (Occasionally)
St. Patrick's Day
April Fool's Day
Cinco de Mayo
Memorial Day
Fourth of July
Labor Day

So, that's that. Okay. Happy Valentine's Day.

Monsters University - OFFICIAL TRAILER!

It's trailer time! Yippe-ki-yay! This movie is bound to be awesome, especially since we have a full-length trailer and it gets me really excited!

Give the Man a Damn C on His Chest!

Look at him reporting all early. Dustin Pedroia deserves to be the new captain of the Red Sox. He is always trying to lead and motivate. He's always hustling. He's also speaking about how winning is the only priority. I'd also like them to become likable again, but that'll come with winning. Plus, I'll always like the Laser Show.

"That was the first time in my life. That was tough. Yeah. It's tough when you go out and compete and you [lose], I don't want it to happen again. That's basically it. It's just a lot of frustration. It's not fun coming to the field when you're not winning every day. When you have that feeling that you show up and you're going to win, that's the feeling you want."

That's just one quote. You can read the whole thing at the article on the MLB website. Muddy Chicken who?


Spambot algorithm creates these. Some guy uses the algorithm and then puts whatever it says into the speech bubbles. This is weird. Garfield Minus Garfield is better, but it's still somewhat odd. Enjoy the pictured strips.

The Kidz Breakfast

  • 12 sausage links
  • 12 strips of bacon
  • 6 eggs
  • 4 black pudding slices
  • 4 slices of bread and butter
  • 4 slices of toast
  • 4 slices of fried bread
  • 2 hash browns
  • 8-egg, cheese and potato omelet
  • Saute potatoes
  • Mushrooms
  • Beans
  • Tomatoes
I doubt that I could finish it, but this British breakfast challenge was completed by someone in 26 minutes! Adam Richman is being summoned! This is crazy!

Shot of the Millennium!

The century! The decade! The year! The month! The week! The day! The hour! The history of the world! Well, it might not be any of those. Probably the day. Maybe the week, too. Month's a possibility. Year is realistic. That's about where it ends. Anywho, watch this play:

Anna Olson was the number one play on Sportscenter today! IT'S FREAKIN' INCREDIBLE!

Remember way back when (early January) I posted Six Flags in the snow and it was depressing, but I'd bring it back in the summer? Well, now, Canobie Lake Park can join the show! On their Facebook page, they have the rest of the photos, but this is the one that I choose to revisit in this summer! Looks eerie. And snowy. And cool. Never really get to see it like that. Social media does it right. Neat! Thanks, Canobie.

Baby Daddies

It's not about the rapid craze that's sweeping the shows that tell if a person is the biological parent of an unborn child. It's like Maury or something. Yeah, I hate those shows. Anyway, The Soup pointed this out. Some guy takes pictures of people in which their father is also there. Then they shrink the popaw down! Czech them all out. My favorite is pictured. This is awesome!

The Only Grammy That Really Matters

Best comedy album, duh! This year, Jimmy Fallon's Blow Your Pants Off took home the award! Very deserving! Especially with Balls in Your Mouth, Neil Young Sings the Fresh Prince Theme Song, Reading Rainbow and Scrambled Eggs With Paul McCartney. One of my favorite albums! Congrats, Jimmy! Deserving!

Golden State Warriors Add New Uniform

I've always had a soft spot for the Warriors ever since Stephen Curry, one of my favorite players from college, was drafted by them. In addition to that, this isn't too bad of a uniform drawn up by Adidas for the Warriors to wear as alternates. Sleeves are cool.

Red Sox Plane Struck by Lightning?

Hubba-wah? Hubba hubba wah? Hubba wah? Look at what Jacoby Ellsbury tweeted out:

Oh no! Can you imagine if something went very wrong? That'd be scary. Glad it's all good and everyone's safe!

Shorty Awards

This year's best in social media. Twitter. Facebook. Tumblr. Instagram. Pinterest. Foursquare. And yes. Google+ too. Sounds like Tom Haverford, but it's actually an award show. AND you can vote for who and what YOU think deserve to win! How neat! Never heard of most of these guys, but still neat. Shortyawards.com, if you want to know where to go.

2013 NBA Celebrity Game

I've always enjoyed the celebrity game. It seems like it's growing in popularity among the famous, though. The teams this year seem pretty stacked! Too bad Zachary Levi's not there this year. Here are the celebs participating:

Kevin Hart
Queen Latifah
Samantha Harris
Russell Westbrook
James Harden
Nick Cannon
Josh Hutcherson
Trey Songz
Usain Bolt
Arne Duncan
Terrence Jenkins

How I Met Your Mother Will End In 2014

According to the showrunners and CBS, How I Met Your Mother will have its final season and end next year, the show's season nine. So this year we'll lose two NBC greats, 30 Rock and The Office. Next year, it seems like we'll lose two of CBS' best, How I Met Your Mother and Two and a Half Men. I can only assume that in the final season, we learn who the mother is. Who knows how the final season will pan out? I'm interested to watch, but sad to see one of the funniest and best comedies of my generation come to a close. A new wave is coming in. Sadly, the old one's washing up.

Egg Russian Roulette

Yes you read that title correctly. Also, it's with Jimmy Fallon and Joel McHale so I mean like, come on, it's hard to get past the level of awesomeness that this video reaches.

New Poll!

Woohoo! New poll! Everyone rejoice! Here, you get to vote for the BEST couple in TV HISTORY! How about that? Honorable mention: Chuck and Sarah because I forgot about them and then four votes were cast and it was too late, but you still get to vote for these guys until February 28!

Couples Discount Review


  • We are HURTLING towards the end. :(
  • I figure this because there was no cold open. I guess they need to keep the plot flowing. Can't waste anytime...
  • I know this sounds weird, but when Jim and Pam argue, I actually smile. I smile because this needed to happen for them, especially in the final season. It was necessary. It's not because it's not difficult to watch, but because it IS difficult to watch.
  • Wouldn't it have been cool to see Andy come back as Pretend Dwight? Would've been neat. And confusing.
  • Dwight's impression of Andy was quite spot on. Especially with the ring ding da doo. I loved it.
  • Chunky lemon milk.
  • I wish Stanley was talking to Nellie instead of Phyllis when he said he was sick of her.
  • Nellie: "Clark, you will be my fake boyfriend so I can get the discount." Clark: "That's what I do." The first Clark line I actually have laughed it. Not Nellie's line because screw her.
  • I'm glad Nellie can't even be in a pretend relationship. If she even gets ONE SECOND of air time during the finale, it will not be good. Well, it will be good, but not because of her. She is the anti-Christ.
  • Wow, this is an all-out Catherine Tate hate fest. Catherine Hate fest? I'm sorry. Back to the episode review.
  • Who knows where that came from with Darryl and Oscar, but pretty humorous.
  • Ah, yes, finally. The return of Nard Dog!
  • Oh, it's the return of jerk Andy from the second half of season three. I miss the awesome and fun Andy. Maybe he'll be back.
  • Wow, I cannot believe Andy lost the Scranton White Pages. That is just. Wow.
  • I did like Jan's reaction to hearing Andy though.
  • Since Dunder Mifflin lost the White Pages, I wonder what that means for the company. Are we coming back to season one with, uh oh, downsizing?
  • Hahahahaha, Pete stopping Meredith. Oh my god. That was so amazing. "Seriously. Why does no one stop her?"
  • What did Jim give Pam as a gift for Valentine's Day?
  • Warehouse was on fire, Dunder Mifflin now sells balloons, Kathy Ireland is their spokeswoman. Lots happened in the three months that Andy was gone.
  • Oh, Kevin makes beautiful music.
  • Andy is definitely Michael when he came back from Sandals.
  • Andy and Erin disintegrated. I guess he just took her for granted. They had a lot of nice moments, but you know. Weird how he'd rather be with her and her not love him than break up.
  • But they broke up anyway. And she kissed Pete. And David Wallace heard about the three months. Asta la vista, Andy! Too bad. Nard Dog's gonna be fired ain't he?
  • It seems that Brian is not a potential love interest for Pam, but rather, a catalyst to make Jim and Pam realize what's going on. Hence, when he told them about the divorce with whoever Alyssa is and the fighting and such. Jim was distraught when he learned that Pam confided in Brian and then left the detail out when telling Jim about all that transpired. He didn't want to fight, so he was going to leave Valentine's Day early, but Pam would rather be with him and fight than not be with him at all. "Put you dukes up, Beesly." Ah, yes.


Finally! October 19 has finally come! Yet, sadly, October 19 has also gone. So has February 7. I know it's weird, but so is Community. And so was the first episode of Community's season four! Which is good! Even though Dan Harmon's not around, we are in for a treat. Also, am I the only one who didn't mind Fred Williard as Pierce? I can't wait to see what this season has in store. Also, ratings were up! Six seasons and a movie!
