A Geek and his PVR

Fighting an uphill battle against my PVRs diminishing freespace

Watched log for Thursday

South Park: Bloody Mary

Stans dad gets arrested for drunk driving and then goes to AA. Much mockery of AA as a Christian fronted cult.

“Dude, I know a cult when I see one. I was the leader of one” -Stan

The O.C.: The Disconnect

Johnny likes Marissa. Marissa is too helpful to Johnny. Ryan get a lap dance when he’s supposed to be interning at the Newport Group, but it’s the fault of Matt who’s been dumped by his girlfriend. Summer is smart, like book smart, on the SATs and now wants to go to Brown. Seth fears this competition and dresses like a pirate while Summer breaks out the Tuba. Julie and Kirsten start a party planning company and when all it does is get a date for Julie, they decide to start a dating service. Sandy fires Matt because Matt is unprepared for an investor meeting (re:strippers above), but being the king of second (and third, and fourth) chances, lets Matt stay. Marissa finds out about Johnny like liking her, and decides to see less of him, and Summer and Seth decide they both can go to Brown. And next week is Chrismakkuh (which Summer saved last year as we were reminded several times).

Don’t have much to say in way of a review, as most of the time The O.C. is just ok, but never really good enough to provoke much of a reaction.

Everwood: Getting To Know You

Good episode. Ephram and Amy do it. Bright finds a way to make Hannah less self-conscious of her body. Rose wants to make the world a better place and adopt a kid. Andy gets lots of internet hits on his dating profile and snoops in Delia’s email. Oh, and Jake fucks up, falling off the wagon and finally confessing his pill-popping ways to Nina.

Joey: Joey and the High School Friend

Smallville: Lex-mas (which BTW, is the lamest, gayest episode title ever)

I don’t know why they didn’t just call it “It’s a Wonderful Lex”, although that would have violated their One-Word-Title rule. So, Lex had a chance to be happy, and chose not to. Clark had a total gay time with Santa. All in all, a weird episode.
