The tragic lack of Glee this week severely limited the musical options. Nonetheless, Charlie, Mac, and Dennis put forward a strong Musical Moment with their WWE/male-stripper attempt at patriotism. We all know Dennis (like Tracy Jordan) likes to pop his shirt off, and I loved the touch of adding fake abs. I also appreciated “The Nightman Cometh” throwback, even though this number could not hold a candle to that stroke of musical genius.
Gossip Girl: The Queen doesn’t always have to sit higher than everyone else on the Met steps.
So not only is Serena sitting higher than Blair, but look at all those people in the background *GASP* sitting higher than The Queen. And they got to walk away without yogurt facials. Perhaps we’re being nitpicky, after all this is Gossip Girl, but the idea of inventing drama to hurt Eric does not sit well with us. This error wasn’t addressed on Daily Intel, so Minus 5.
Modern Family: The kids were back at school last week.
They definitely aired “Coal Digger” and “Run for Your Wife” out of order. But I’m more inclined to forgive this error because the show is still trying to gain viewers, and this week wasn’t that great. Save for Gloria’s shocking remark that made this week’s 10 Best Lines.
Ok, so admittedly the three Coors bottles that remain perfectly placed in this scene are not that egregious, but I’m still very annoyed. Probably because we’ve already seen a lot of Coors placement in previous episodes. And in the other scenes, at least they incorporated the brand into a joke. I like the “if we’re going to do product placement, it might as well be a joke” style better than the “we’re so sneaky, we’re subconsciously getting them to buy the product” style. Click below to see the other Coors jokes, just in case you forgot. Actually, the Sweet Dee scene also has the subconscious style with that sneaky napkin holder. Why, Always Sunny, why?
In honor of Halloween, I present you with three disturbing moments from Gossip Girl, Always Sunny, and The Office this week. Pick which one made your skin crawl the most: 1. Rufus’ “door” comment, 2. Frank’s trash eating, or 3. Michael hanging from a noose with his dick-in-a-box. Ew
30 Rock: This week’s two best dialogues both involve Tracy Jordan. During the first, he’s talking to Frank and the second to Kenneth. Then the Frank-Tracy dialogue continues after the Kenneth-Tracy dialogue. Ok, so maybe this is more of a scene then two separate dialogues… But let’s be honest, as great as Frank and Kenneth are, it doesn’t matter who’s feeding the lines to Tracy in this scene, just along as he’s set up. So, here you have this week’s two best dialogues:
Teleslant chronicles TV's Best & Worst Moments of the Week.
