Happy Friday, friends. Just a few things I want to talk about today. If you’re a fan of the shows mentioned in this post’s title and haven’t gotten to your DVR yet, be aware: there are spoilers after #1.
- First, this great post by K at the My Business Addiction blog. It’s about “The King’s Speech” and “not letting imperfections keep [you] from taking chances and seeking out opportunities.” I really liked this post and recommend it.
- I’ve been hoping that when Ricky Gervais made his inevitable “Office” cameo, it would be as David Brent. And he did! Non-Michael/David line of the night: “Where’s your jet pack, Zuckerberg?” Was the interaction believable? In some ways, yes, since for the storyline to pay off, it had to happen. But I tend to think that people reconnecting as adults are a lot more gracious to each other than TV would have us believe. I tend to think that after a certain point, we all realize that life is hard, things don’t always work out the way we plan, and we’re all pushing on. That’s not just me, is it?
- I feel like “Community” got its heart back last week. Heart and sincerity are what made season 1 so good. Yes, it was outlandishly funny, but that only worked because it was balanced by heart. The first half of this season missed a lot of that. Last week’s episode found it, and last night’s kept it going. Good good good.
- 30 Rock was all about “Uptown Girl.” Must be something in the air.
Have a great weekend. Check back tomorrow for a new video blog.
