WOOO SPRING BREAK! YEAH! HOES AND LIQUOR AND BEACHES! WOOOT!

I’m just going to be incoherent throughout the episode, since we all know Arrested Development did it better.

I’m Distracted, But Not By The Sirens

In the Enchanted Forest (EF) past, it’s a dark and foggy night on the Jolly Roger. We learn that Hook has a very long-range plan wherein he has become Pan’s delivery boy so that Pan will eventually tell Hook how to defeat Rumple. (So maybe they’re in Neverland? I can’t tell.) A mermaid’s song entrances the crew and The Jolly Roger comes very close to a Titanic situation. Hook avoids the danger thanks to some very deft one-handed maneuvering at the helm. Continue Reading

Worldly Distractions: Girls 4.10 – Home Birth

So yeah, apparently this is the season finale. That surprises me – everyone knows that a civilized American series has thirteen. (A British series is automatically civilized, and a Scandinavian series doesn’t care.) Anyway, this has been a weird, disjointed series of episodes, and I’m wondering if this finale will bring it into better cohesion. Knowing Dunham’s usual style, probably not. At the very least, seeing as this episode’s title heavily implies that Adam’s sister will be present, we are likely to have some quality Adam Driver time. Gotta take what you can get, you know.

(Incidentally, I got in trouble tonight for pointing out that Mad Men, this show’s replacement on Worldly Distractions, premieres on Easter Sunday, and possibly implying that it was “bigger than Jesus”. I stand by my statement.)

Oh my god, who’s pregnant? Britta? It’s Britta, isn’t it? At least the father isn’t Chang. I hope. Alternately, who is buying a lawnmower?

First some housekeeping, I apologize for my total inability to keep to a schedule with these recaps – it’s been a busy time and I’m currently kind of stuck in life. The good news, though, is that both Community and Mad Men are returning in the next couple of weeks, and I’ll be recapping those as usual – though unfortunately, this will be the last go-around for both (well, Community hasn’t officially been cancelled yet, but come on). At the end of this season, I will be retiring from the position of Master Recapper, mostly because of grad school this fall, but also because I was pretty much in this for Mad Men anyway.

Speaking of lazy millennials, let’s see what’s up with our Girls this week!

My bad – I forgot Community is on Tuesday now, not Thursday. Anyway, can you believe this day is here? We’re almost to #sixseasonsandamovie! Despite great odds, this little show continues to linger (thanks, Yahoo). But can it live up to its stellar first years? Or do we have to declare another gas leak?

He’s Back! (And He’s Not Quite Himself)

In this week’s episode, the Terrible Trio becomes the Querulous Quartet, the Charmings continue to run around town doing absolutely nothing. And sadly, Cruella doesn’t have any clever lines. Let’s hit the major plot points, shall we? Continue Reading

So while the rest of you were binge watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, I took a break and caught up with this week’s Big Bang. Was it worth it? Well, nothing’s worth missing Ellie Kemper in light-up shoes, but it’s close.
