Top 5: BSG TV Moments not actually on Battlestar Galactica

Inspired by a recent spiral back into my BSG and Caprica obsession brought on by the Flesh in Doctor Who’s recent outings I’ve decided to drum up a list of my favourite Battlestar Galactica moments on TV… that didn’t happen on the Battlestar Galactica series itself. – S

Comedy Quickies – May 4th/5th

Finale time is upon us! 30 Rock wrapped it’s fifth season this week, and Community kicked off it’s 2-week finale! Also in Comedies this week, Cougar Town, Happy Endings, Big Bang Theory, Parks & Recreation and The Office. – S

Cougar Town

I love that neither Bobby nor Jules understood the punishment bestowed upon him by the council.

Oh Trav, I think we all kind of knew he was going to getting his little heart crushed, and as hard as it was for us (and Jules) to watch the lead up to the proposal where Grayson and Trav bond was great.

Top 5: Fun Star Wars References, May the 4th be with You

In honour of Star Wars day we decided to round up some fun Star Wars parodies and references from some of our favourite TV shows. Star Wars has had such an enormous impact on our culture it was nearly impossible to just choose a few [B did fight hard for Family Guy’s inclusion], but few we did choose and in no particular order.

Enjoy and May the Fourth be with you.

5) Scrubs – My Two Dads (1×05)

The first of many, many Star Wars spoofs and references in Scrubs . In true JD fashion everything is about him, and in his head it plays out like a scene from Star Wars with two forces battling for his soul.

Comedy Quickies – April 27/28

B is engaging in a battle with his laptop and the evil forces of tech support. He assures me that he will emerge victorious one way or another and will be back with his always awesome insights into our fave comedies in time for May sweeps.  So until then you’re stuck with me.  – S

Cougar Town

We were promised an episode where Laurie discovers twitter and becomes awesome at it. As a follower and part of the @Larmy, I thought that it would be more obviously incorporated into the show (somehow?)  although I was impressed by the twitter account & how she used it to conquer trivia night.

What I really loved was 1) watching Jules be humiliated in public for stupid mistakes, mostly because her reactions were priceless, and because the contrast to Bobby completely owning his title as Wrong Balls Bobby as he hit his competitor’s ball at a major golf tournament after Jules prayed to have her bad luck transferred elsewhere. 2) Barb’s misuse of the work Kick-Ass after last week’s redefinition because gettng your ass kicked is never a good thing.

Comedy Quickies April 6/7

Comedy Quickies for April 6/7 including: The Big Bang TheorySecret Diary of a Call Girl, and new shows Breaking In and Workaholics.

Breaking In

It’s not that I had overly high hopes about this show, but simply based on its premise I expected Breaking In to be a more cleverly crafted comedy. Instead of a tightly wound satire about quirky genius hackers, the show was an overly fast-paced hodgepodge of worn-out humour. Both the characters and the dialogue need more work before this show officially joins the ranks of the other Comedy Quickies shows. That said, I am willing to give the show a chance and see if it can become anything more than just a rejected Chuck script. – B

Comedy Quickies for Feb 23/24

Comedy Quickies for February 23/24 covering Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, Community, Parks & Rec, The Office & 30 Rock!

Modern Family

Love the Gloria barbershop. You insult a woman’s driving, and you use the air bunnies? You do that to me and I kill you.

Lose the C-story just to give characters airtime. I wasn’t a fan of the Cam and Mitch subplot this week. – B

Really like how the story about Phil & Claire’s fight was structured in mini-flashbacks while Phil recounted the story to Gloria as she screamed at him with her boobs in his face and scissors in hand.

Such a great conclusion to the Phil & Claire story, they are such a perfect couple. – S

Comedy Quickies for Feb 16/17

This week Comedy quickies are brought to you by B, S & H! Hooray!

Modern Family

Love the Xanex washed down with a shot of tequila.

Lose the glitter, it’ll settle in Lily’s lungs. Princess got schooled by Fizbo! Never break character, never, ever. – B

Julie Bowen is at her most hilarious as Claire when she is frozen with embarrassment like she was tonight. So fantastic. I also love that it really was all about Gloria. – S

Fizbo the Court Jester was equal parts terrifying and hilarious, but I loved that just as Cam accepted that he could let someone else take over the enertainment at his daughter’s birthday, Mitchell also accepted that no one could 1up a party’s awesome quite like Fizbo. – H

Welcome to our new section called Comedy Quickies. Our quick rundown of the half-hour comedies on our radar each week.We’ve got Modern Family, Cougar Town, Big Bang Theory, Community, Parks & Recreation, The Office & 30 Rock.


Modern Family

Love the antics of Clive and Juliana, especially when then could care less about the kids.
Lose the sideburns Dylan. Just because Haley hasn’t been single since she was nine, it doesn’t mean she’ll coming running back to you. Actually… yeah it does. – B

I loved the concept of “winning” valentine’s day. It could have worked well with any of the three couples, but it looked good on Gloria & J. I think Dylan was the real Valentine’s Day winner. That was pretty awesome. – S
