Are you guys watching Broad City? You should be watching Broad City! I hesitate to compare it to Girls, because although on the outside they are composed of similar parts, they are very different, but I do want to say: If you watch Girls on Sunday and Broad City when it airs all the way on Wednesday, you hardly even feel like you’re spending your whole life watching shows about weird young women living in New York City! Dooo ittt! Speaking of Girls, Hannah’s editor is dead, she doesn’t feel anything, she is worried about her eBook, and people think she is crazy. One thing episodes like this do that is unforgivable is invariably lead to so many eEssays about how, actually, people relate to Hannah, and here is their story. Uh, duh-doy. Having to process emotions and sometimes not feeling the way that others expect you to feel, at least at first, is something that, I’m sure, nearly everyone experiences. WE DON’T NEED YOUR DUMB-DUMB STORY ABOUT IT! BE QUIET! Also, unless your story includes retelling a fake story to your boyfriend in an effort to make you seem as though you have emotions — which you had in spades early on, but seem to have trouble with now? — you are not like Hannah, because she is a lunatic. (Also possible: What she said ahead of the story was true, and the story was a way for her to get to the emotion that she was feeling without having to process it fully and feel it directly. Still, though, be quiet with your story.) Wasn’t it odd how the plots of Community and Parks and Recreation were so similar last night? Speaking of emotions: Abed has them, and Brie Larson is back! Hello, Brie Larson! You’re great! I laughed a lot when the Fat Dog dance was found out to be a Bear Down dance. Parks and Recreation was sad and sweet. It was slightly confusing that Leslie said her “ain’t no party like a Leslie Knope party” line, as it didn’t exactly feel like a nod to the 30 Rock line, but I suppose we have to assume that it was. Bob’s Burgers was perfect. Kroll Show was good but still, for me, has not yet reached the perfection of the season’s first episode. WHAT DID YOU THINK?

  1. My stupid DVR continues not to tape Community or Parks and Rec for some reason. WHATEVER. I will say that I literally fell off my couch laughing this wed while watching Workaholics. And then again with Broad City.

  2. I cried during Parks & Rec, not even embarrassed.
    Community was pretty good. Workaholics was funny. Archer was great. I like Broad City a lot. Bob’s Burgers was great as always.

  3. For some reason my DVR refuses to record Community so I missed it again. Parks and Rec was good though! I don’t think Chris should have stayed on the show after his first season so I’m glad to see him go but it’s sad that Ann left.

    Cougar Town was not very good this week, although the cameo from Busy Philipps’s daughter was cute. Something that is weird about that show right now is that they just completely abandoned the “Grayson has a daughter” storyline AND the thing with Bobby’s surf buddy becoming his girlfriend. Neither was the most thrilling part of the show, but you’d think they’d at least throw in a line like “Hey Grayson, how is your daughter?” “Oh she’s great and definitely still exists, thanks for asking!” or “Hey Bobby, what happened to your girlfriend?” “Oh, she dumped me because I am basically homeless.”

    • Yeah I made a joke during Parks & Rec when Andy said to Ann, “I just remembered we used to date!” I was like, “a writer said that to another writer and they put it in the show.”

  4. Has anyone else been watching Rick and Morty? I tried it this week, and its surprisingly funny for an Adult Swim show! Much recommends!

  5. I saw Community, liked the whole “Bear Down for Midterms” effort (and subequent fiasco), in addition to the office supplies hotline. However, I missed the first half of Parks & Rec because my dad was insistent on watching local news (which was all puff pieces to my consternation). Was that the soon-to-be park, former dump-hole?

  6. broad city is so great! i don’t watch girls, so i can’t speak to that comparison, but it sort of reminds me of a more crass version of flight of the conchords. also, broad city is just a VERY good name for a television program. the part at the end where ilana was trying to rope abbi into a three-way with lincoln and abbi just awkwardly flopped away was tbs very funny.
