parks and recreation recapping: halloween surprise

Previously on Parks and Recreation: Sex Education

This week has been a great week for comedies; they seem to be getting into their groove, plot-wise. This was a great episode, with a pretty solid plot and great dialogue.

The episode begins with Leslie putting a bid on her dream house, as she and Ben plan on moving in together. Halloween festivities are occurring in Pawnee; Ron taking Diane and her daughters (plus Andy) trick-or-treating; a screening of Death Canoe 4; and several surprises!

Ron is unused to the loudness and excitement–and general presence of children–and doesn’t know how to take care of Diane’s daughters. During the screening of Death Canoe 4 Donna sends live tweets (perfectly meta considering Retta’s penchant for doing the same thing), Ann and Leslie try to scare Tom but send Jerry into a mild attack instead. Ben is about to come home but is offered another campaign job–this one in Florida. Leslie goes to say goodbye to her dream house, believing that Ben took the job in Florida. Ben shows up in the house and proposes to her!

Opinions, Thoughts, and Quotes 

  • I loved the character development of Ann getting rid of belongings from the phases of each boyfriend.
  • Ron trying to bond with Diane’s daughters by teaching them to saw.
  • The more that we get to know this couple, the more that I enjoy it. However, I do really like Tammy 2, played by Megan Mullally, his wife in real life!
  • Just when I got worried that we would have more of the same-old same-old Ben’s away campaigning plot, they switch it up! In a great way.
  • It was touching to see Leslie crying when Ben proposes. And her reaction is typical Leslie. I just couldn’t stop thinking about how sad that scene was, as she just broke up with Will Arnett.
  • I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of Tom’s Rent-A-Swag idea. And I’m looking forward to it!

Leslie: So this house has no trampoline room?

Real estate agent: Correct. Like all the houses in the world, there’s no trampoline room.


Ben: Great work, all of you.

April: Especially me!

Ben: Especially everyone. This was a team effort, really.

April: But I was the best. Thank you.

Ben: You were all fantastic.

April: Most of all, me, April Ludgate, the real hero. Thank you, and you’re welcome.


Donna: In the fifth one, the canoe’s actually the hero. It’s a crazy twist.


Tom: [to Jerry, who continuously farts loudly while having his fart attack heart attack] Jeez, did a dinosaur just fart?

Seriously, did you eat farts for lunch?


Tom: I just want to hear the doctor say that Jerry had a fart attack, is that too much to ask?”


Donna: [After Morris complains that Donna ruined the movie by tweeting spoilers] If you don’t like what I’m tweeting then don’t follow me.

Morris: What are you doing?

Donna: I’m live tweeting this dumbass conversation.

Emily enjoys lots of things: laughing and watching television being the top two. She loves smart comedies involving witty repartee, loud actions and gestures, over-the-top theatrics, and a solid plot.

the office recapping: here comes treble

Previously on The Office: Work Bus

If you hadn’t guessed from the title, this Halloween-themed episode mainly revolved around Andy and his Cornell a capella group “Here Comes Treble.”

I think it was a pretty solid episode, with lots of laughs and the beginnings of a plot arc, however strange and lackluster as they seem.

Comedic icon Stephen Colbert stars as Broccoli Rob, the mentor of Here Comes Treble; the man who has regaled current Treble members with tales Andy’s college escapades. But the catch? Broccoli Rob has Treble convinced that all of Andy’s nicknames, highlights, and quirks are his own. We learn that, to Andy, Treble was and is his life. With this identity taken away from him, he believes that his life has lost its entire meaning. His first solution to the problem? Move back out to Cornell with Erin, a plan Erin is adamantly against. Instead she convinces Andy to donate money instead. Andy calls up his mom for money and finds out that his parents are broke. Here’s hoping that wherever the writers are going with this plot arc, it’s not a depressed Andy searching for existential answers, somewhat similar to Rob Lowe’s horribly depressing–and unnecessary, in my opinion–role as Chris Trager on Parks and Recreation

Other notable plot and happenings included Pam and Jim arguing because Jim spent $10,000 on his new sports marketing job, twice the amount they agreed upon. Dwight finds out someone in the office is taking depression pills and, with the help of Nelly, tracks down the owner. (Spoilers: It’s Nelly.) Oscar is caught by the cameras making out with Angela’s husband.

Opinions, Thoughts, and Favorites 

  • I’m enjoying Pam and Jim’s camaraderie. It’s the best their relationship’s been since before they were married and had kids.
  • Even their “Monster Mash” dialogue and arguments were great!
  • I loved how Nellie dressed up as Toby–which tricked Toby into thinking he fancied her, until she took off her wig.
  • I mentioned it earlier briefly, but I loved Stephen Colbert’s cameo! Great guest star 🙂

Quotes/Favorite Scenes

Dwight: [After getting his head stuck in a pumpkin] I mean, the pumpkin should rot off of my head in a month or two. Right?


Creed: [Came to shirt with blood splattered all over himself]  It’s Halloween. That is really, really good timing.


Meredith [Dwight throws a huge net over her head, believing she is the drug user] Stop baggin’ my head!


Clark: Where’s the band? ‘Cause there’s no way you guys are making this magic with just your mouths.
Creed: That’s what she said.


Andy: [When he argues that his trademark song is George Michael’s Faith, not Broccoli Rob’s] Who did you think I was dressed up as?

Treble member: I thought you were [dressed up as] Adam Lambert.


Kevin: [Jim and Pam argue about their money using the song Monster Mash as their analogy] It turns out Pam really, really hates Monster Mash.

Kevin: Pam was like, “No. Hate it. Stupid.”

thoughts on community: contemporary impressionists

Previously on Community: Urban Matrimony and the Sandwich Arts

Jeff decided to go to a shrink over break and is now taking anti-anxiety medication – so he can love himself more than he already does for some reason. Britta tries to keep him humble before an inevitable break happens. Abed is hiring celebrity look-a-likes to help him reenact scenes from films. The group feels they should intervene but Troy keeps them at bay. Eventually the group helps Abed pay off his debt by working as look-a-likes at a Bar Mitzvah.

  • Why did no one notice the eerie resemblance Britta has to Michael Jackson?! It’s all so obvious now, but I can’t be credited for it anymore so it’s irrelevant.
  • Wasn’t last week’s episode the first time the group saw each other after break? Can somone tell me what I missed?
  • We now know that even Jeff’s shadow is fully capable of inducing physical, orgasmic convulsions…at least for Dean Pelton.
  • Seeing Blake (Anderson) from Comedy Central’s Workaholics was awesome. Even if his hair is pulled back into a boring – and outright offensive – ponytail.
  • Would anyone take a French Stewart threat seriously? Especially with his Sue Sylvester styled track suits and adorable gold chain?
  • Next time I see an older film from the Halloween I think I’ll be more scared thinking about Abed as Jaime Lee Curtis than Michael Myers being a remorseless murderer.
  • I’ve never been to a Mitzvah (Bar or Bat) but do they all rival MTV’s My Super Sweet 16 in production value?
  • Abed walking away from Troy’s handshake attempt made me sad.
  • Playing the actual score from the ending of The Incredible Hulk (1978-1982) for a broken Jeff gets you more geek points that you already don’t need, Community.
  • I treasure Troy and Abed’s relationship – and you better too! – but I think it’ll be fun if Evil Abed sticks around for a few eppies. That beard is just a thing of legend.


“Jeff, you can’t be on anti-anxiety meds what little self-doubt you have is the only thing keeping your ego pinned in. You are a textbook narcissist.” -Brita
“I’m an exceptional narcissist, Brita.” -Jeff

“All we had was dumb reality before we met that man. And he’s made all of our lives better than reality. Now it becomes a little inconvenient and it’s time to get real? For shame!” -Troy

“…there are many advantages to traveling by yourself: You can drive faster. Change direction. And the only pee-breaks are yours.” -Evil Abed

the office recapping: spooked

By: Joe Finch

Halloween episodes of The Office are always highly anticipated, as there have been some classic costumes unveiled over the years (3-hole punch Jim, Gabe as Lady Gaga, Kevin as Michael Moore). The kudos for best getup this year definitely go to Creed (for shock value if nothing else), who dressed up as Osama Bin Laden. Other ridiculous attire included Meredith’s Kate Middleton gown (a duct-taped undershirt concoction), Phyllis’s sexy bunny lingerie (which Andy vetoed), and Erin’s adorable Wendy’s outfit. However, appropriately representing this season thus far, most of the costume ideas came off as lazy and unenthused. Jim, Kevin and Darryl wore Miami Heat jerseys, while Gabe, Toby and Kelly all dressed identically as skeletons. Aside from the unmotivated idea of assigning uniform costumes to multiple characters, Pam was a kangaroo, Andy a laborer of some sort, and Stanley a chef. Perhaps, if the show still wanted to provide laughs, they could have had someone dress up as Michael Scott.

The Halloween special does deliver horror early on, as Robert shows up to the office, and plays a large role in the episode. His usual egotistical rambling stays consistent throughout, as he provides as much excitement to Halloween as the woman who gives out toothbrushes to trick-or-treaters.

A significant shift in storyline does occur, as the producers really hone in on the rollercoaster relationship between Jim and, uh, I mean Andy and Erin. In yet another attempt to go back to the well, we have to endure another love story involving a manager and a receptionist. Only this go-around, the receptionist is a one dimensional character, and the chemistry and friction between the feuding love birds is much harder to buy into.

In the true spirit of the October 31st holiday, we find out through Robert’s keen observations what really puts the spook in his employees. Creed demonstrates his fear of snakes, while Kevin trembles at the thought of mummies. Kelly is deathly afraid of loneliness, and Meredith reveals her phobia—Jim.

If this episode was stuffed into a jack-o-lantern bucket and I emptied out the contents, I would find few treats inside. With the exception of a few good one liners, the writers continue to dish out stale comedy. The last few seasons, trick-or-treaters who visited Dunder Mifflin got an abundance of goodies. This year, they threw a few pennies our way, but nothing more. Next year, we shouldn’t waste our time and just skip that office.


Andy – “The chef from South Park.”

Stanley – “Just a chef.”

Meredith – “You’re the people’s Princess. Diana was nothing.”

Toby – “Every Halloween I tell him the same thing. You can’t bring weapons into the office. And every year he says the same thing. ‘As soon as I get my weapons back, I’m going to kill you.’ But there I am at Thanksgiving alive, you know. I’m a lucky turkey.”

Jim – “I said no. Kevin started crying. So, I am Chris Bosh.”

Erin – “Send completed. You are the best in the biz.”

Robert – “And on this day of fantasy, you are—a  laborer.”

Pam – Dwight, are you eating a stick?”

Erin – “Pecker Poker. It’s the game of cards that gets you hard.”

Andy – “I’m sorry, this must be really uncomfortable for you.”

Robert – “I’m never uncomfortable.”

Erin – “She’s from somewhere—I bet. Maybe from the forest.”

Creed – “You don’t live as long as I have without a healthy fear of snakes, Bobby.”
