I think Blogger should work on the bugs in its old system before it introduces a new one. Who's with me?
I'm cautiously declaring The Office to be back. Of course I loved the Jim and Pam interaction, but I liked the episode before that point. I loved Dwight talking about planting his seed in Ryan; the long, lonely walk of loneliness; Cousin Mose; "Lovefool;"and the Jim/Karen flirtation. I think the writers need to reign in Dwight a little bit though. He's becoming a caricature. I also thought the soft pretzel thing was over-the-top, but I know how crazy offices go over free food so I'll forgive it. I still consider Season 1 to be the golden season and hope that the show ends soon. There's only so long it can go without becoming a typical sitcom and I think we're getting dangerously close to that point.
ER was pretty good too. I didn't realize that Forrest Whitaker's attorney was Janice at first! I thought she looked familiar. It was nice to see her in a serious role since she's basically played Janice in everything I've seen her in (Friends, Raymond [I don't watch this show willingly; it just happens to come after The Simpsons in syndication on our FOX channel], and Seinfeld). I thought Forrest and Goran did an excellent job (Emmy nomination for Forrest?) and was glad to see Abby back in the ER. Are the writers purposely making callbacks to Uncle Jesse though? Last week we saw that he was living in the attic and then this week he called little Joe a bambino and quoted Elvis, which are all things that Uncle Jesse did. And now I'm going to go kill myself for knowing all that stuff.
