The Office – The Meeting
Michael gets worried after David Wallace and Jim have a private meeting. Pam tries to get a headcount for the wedding. Darryl’s worker’s compensation claim makes Dwight suspicious.
No one should be surprised that this week’s episode was a little weaker than the premiere. Actually, while it was a weaker episode with comedy, I definitely think it was more emotionally charged than most episodes. And that came from the tension between Jim and Michael. Jim exerts himself and basically reprimands Michael for telling David that he didn’t deserve the promotion.
It was really cool to see Jim take a stand. I can’t wait to see that play out more now that they are going to be “Co-Managers.”
Community – Spanish 101
In Spanish class, Senor Chang asks the students to pair up for a project. Jeff’s attempt to team up with Britta fails and he ends up displeased with his actual partner. Annie and Shirley assist Britta with her cause for social justice.
Second episode out of the way – and not as good as the first. Although Chevy Chase is making strides at being one of the funnier characters on the show. I don’t have much to say about this episode other than Chevy Chase was funny. I’ve watched it 3 times, and I’m really not impressed by it. One more episode will tell. And also, Chriso is LOVING the show, so it looks like it may be a permanent fixture on my DVR. * sigh *
Parks and Recreation – Stakeout
After discovering marijuana being grown in the pit, Leslie becomes determined to find out whose crop she had stumbled across.
Umm… it was all about weed. Oh, and Amy Poehler was funny.
Bones – Harbingers in the Fountain
For the past six weeks Booth has been recovering from brain surgery, and Sweets has finally certified him as mentally fit to return to duty. Meanwhile, while reading her tarot cards, Angela’s psychic reveals that there are several bodies buried under a fountain. Booth and Brennan are skeptical about checking it out, but are surprised when they find the remains of eleven bodies exactly where the psychic said they’d be.
Cyndi Lauper was the guest star. Chriso and I watched the ENTIRE episode before he said, HEY, I know her.
Bones – The Bond in the Boot
Brennan and Booth are asked to investigate the death of a man who was murdered for the secret contents of his briefcase. They suspect that secret operatives are at work, and their theory is proven correct when they find the liquified remains of a CIA agent in the trunk of a car. Meanwhile, Brennan’s new best-selling book causes tension between her and Booth, and Wendell loses his scholarship.
These last two episodes of Bones were really very good. It’s the same formula as it’s always been, which is good. What makes this season really good so far is the relationship between Booth and Bones. There’s always been tension, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this season would be THE season where they would finally decide that they need to be together. Anyone who has been faithful to the show will know the excitement. The old adage goes that loyalty will always be rewarded. So, I think we are going to see some rewards this weekend.
