How’s that for a title? Yeah, you don’t have to tell me it’s terrible. So here’s the deal. I enjoy “covering” Community because I know that while not a lot happens on comedies, most of us wish they were recapped more often. We need people to laugh at the lines with us and swoon over the Jim and Pam moments (or whoever, you know). Anyway, long story short, I’m just going to highlight the best moments (meaning my favorite) and hilarious quotes from three comedy shows that aren’t currently represented on OCTV. Community, How I Met Your Mother and the Big Bang Theory. Why these three, you may ask? Um, because there are kickass people covering Happy Endings and New Girl, the only other comedies I watch, and you can tell me 30 Rock is the shit until the next rapture but I still ain’t gonna watch it. Also, you should know that if someone’s interested in doing a bang up recap of one of these shows in particular, you can talk to the boss ladies about taking it away from me. That’s totally cool. Cool cool. Cool cool cool.
So let’s get started. Mondays are How I Met Your Mother and since this is our first time together, let’s establish my feelings on the whole deal. I adore FUCKING ADORE Lily & Marshall and I refuse to pick a favorite between the two. I quite like McLarens but it’s no Crowley’s. Ted is sooo annoying and honestly, Zoey was perfect for him in that she showed just how obnoxious and douchey he is. Seriously, who tells their kids about all their sexual conquests? Also, while I have no beef (it’s what’s for dinner! Anyone else get that? Just me? Okay.) with Kevin or Nora, I want Barney and Robin to be together forever.
Thursdays are the Big Bang Theory and Community. I’ve covered Community a couple times and it basically sums up as Joel McHale is the hottest but I’ve got a bigger thing for Danny Pudi. I’m a cliché when it comes to TBBT. I love Sheldon and Penny scenes best (don’t ship them, ew). Sometimes Raj can be really hot and Howard creeps me the fuck out. Also, I think the show has been really smart in bringing in Amy and Bernadette to round out the group and create new realms of comedy.
