Comedy Quickies for February 9/10

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

The Big Bang Theory

Love the look on Penny’s face when she sees Leonard’s walk of shame. Good morning slut!
Lose the day job Sheldon. You’ve found a new career as a pimp. Daddy needs a new linear accelerator. – B

My darling Lucile Bluth, it’s so good to see you again. – S


Love the shorthand for the most celebrated Canadian alt-rock band of the mid-nineties. BNL does have two Billboard awards you know.
Lose the 140 character limit on text messages apparently. Seriously though, Jeff’s sappy provocation of his love warmed my heart a bit.- B

Troy and Abed’s friendship is just so impossibly precious. I think they may have been the most adorable thing that has ever happened to me television. – S

The Office

Love the fact that Michael is finally in a relationship with someone who loves him equally in return.
Lose the third wheel bit. Gabe may have done MDMA but it’s tiring to see him try so hard. Erin and Andy all the way. – B

Of course Dwight has a list. – S

Parks and Recreation

Love the return of Megan Mullally, even her whale tail.
Lose the angst Ben, we all know you’re smitten with Leslie. – B

Loved the call back to Leslie’s old flame, and Ben stumbling all over himself in an attempt to dig up some dirt on that.  Also majorly love when we see Rob Lowe’s character seem human, they way he wants to encourage April to try is amazingly sweet. – S

30 Rock

Love the Canada references. We may manufacture your meth America, but we won’t take your money for healthcare.
Lose the onboard entertainment. No one wants to watch Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, no matter what. – B

Overall, what’s with the Canadian content this week in comedy? Community had the love for BNL but both 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation were really getting their hate on. – S

Jack: “Yes my baby is Canadian-American, but I will treat her like a human baby”

Wendy: “You could move to Canada with me”
