    What a grave and unforgivable error, Josh! I'm glad you caught it in time! Triple X-rated simply sells Brandi short.


    EDIT: Brandi with an 'i', because as How I Met Your Mother detailed, names are much sluttier with an 'i' instead of a 'y'.

    Actually, I think I screwed it up, too -- turns out, it was "Brandi MaxxxX."

    She's not awesome-sauce without that final caps, right?

    I enjoy Ron, April & Andy, and especially Tom. My least favorite actor on the program is Amy.

    Quote:

    Right, that's what I meant, there -- that they "sexied" Leslie up in real life to match her "empowered" emotional state after seeing Jerry's work.

    Also, rewatching this one again, I was digging the hell out of the "Ya Heard? with Perd" sequences, because it's funny to see what amounts to a real-life cable access show acting as one of the biggest pulpits in Pawnee.

    Perd is hilarious, because WHAT IS WITH THAT NAME? I think that nearly every major TV market has some guy with a crazy, psuedo-homespun name. In the D.C. area, it's "Topper Schutt." I think I saw a weatherman on a local L.A. station once named "Flip Spiceland."
    Also, Perd has obviously seen Wayne Brady on TV, and said, "Okay, I don't need to be THAT confrontational."

    Ha...very nice.


    Speaking of Perd, he was a news anchor (or reporter, I forget) in the opening minutes of Fast Five.

    I demand that these two worlds collide somehow!

    Another brilliant episode! I don't know how the writers are able to consistently top themselves, but it seems like they're doing it every week. This show is just too damn good.

    By the way, Josh, thanks for the link to Tom Haverfoods. "Water is Hot Ice".

    April pretending to order 40 dozen inflatable saxophones and "gangsta" fedoras = Callback to one "Duke Silver" = Me dying with laughter.

    I can't decide on a favorite moment from last night's episode. Maybe April grabbing the scissors, or just Ron's overall disheveled appearance as his impending "party" approached.


    I was quite moved by the final reveal of Ron's birthday party. A wordless moment of a variety of meats, liquor, and exploding bridges. Is there anything more perfect?

    I can't believe they actually paid to use The Bridge On The River Kwai when they could have just had 20 seconds of explosion sound effects.

    This is a show that is firing on all cylinders. Between this and Rajiv's wedding on "Outsourced" it was a good night on NBC.

    Loved Andy's reaction to Tom's "diss" towards Billy Drago. (SHOVE IT!) April putting her arm up to try to contain Andy's excitement was perfect.



    Also, looks like Pawnee's very own "Shelbyville" is finally rearing its snooty head.

    And Tom's reaction-shots to the food buffet at the Eagleton town hall meeting was all sorts of awesome-sauce. We need more rivalry with the absurdly-wealthy Eagleton. When their officers rolled up on a fleet of Segways, I almost died.

    Seeing April having fun with something as wholesome as a whiffle ball game was very cute, and a nice passing glance at how much the character has developed. Although why they were using actual baseball sound effects confounds me.


    "And a bounce-house. Did you know they make adult-sized versions?"



    "...yes..."

    OK, I guess you can't quote people and also type your thoughts about that post anymore.




    Anyway, with regards to Josh wondering about the baseball SFX. I thought they were playing softball (due to April's underhand pitch).

    On the blue bar along the top, hit "My Profile". Just to the left of the "Public Messages" box is a little gray button that says "Edit Account Details." Click on it, and scroll down to "Site Preferences". Under Preferred Editor Type, select BB Code Editor. It should make it easier to quote again.

    Was that Parker Posey playing Leslie's counterpart in Eagleton?
