S1, E19, “The Anniversary That Never Was”

It’s Maggie and Jason’s anniversary this week on Growing Pains. To celebrate Carol, Mike, and Ben are making breakfast for them and they end up doing an even more terrible job of making eggs than Jason. They couldn’t even get them onto the plate.

All of them make themselves upstairs to surprise and once they do after discussing how they’re going to do it outside the door, Maggie and Jason are nowhere to be find. Jumping to conclusions, Mike reverts back to this Twilight Zone he saw about kids discovering their parents were aliens from outer space. Right after he finishes Jason and Maggie walk in, surprises them, and as a result throw the silver platters the food was laying on. read more

Saved by the Bell Season 2, Episode 17: “Breaking Up is Hard to Undo”

We open with Slater and Jessie playing a rousing game of “Got Your Nose!” It’s the game all infants enjoy!vlcsnap-2014-08-17-12h36m24s183

Zack Morris reminds Kelly they’ve been going steady for sixty-eight days, which is probably as much news for her as it is for us considering the ending of last week’s episode. Either these writers can’t keep their timelines straight or NBC is airing the episodes out of order again. I can believe either one. Of course, there’s always possibility number three: they don’t give a shit. read more

The Serena Also Rises. Episode 2×05.

The Serena Also Rises. Episode 2×05.

So no more incestuous Dukes and Duchesses that pay Nate for sex and refuse to put out for Blair! I think we can all breathe a gigantic sigh of relief now. Also, Serena is Queen and not Blair! How is that going to go?

It’s Fashion Week, which means Blair MUST wear elderly clothing!

Actually, she’s doing the seating chart.

Humphrey is apparently applying to Yale. Isn’t that Blair’s thing? I thought Dan was a Dartmouth man. He’s changed his mind. Jenny is cutting class to help Eleanor. read more

The New Class Season 2, Episode 7: “The People’s Choice”

We open with Lindsay, Megan, and some extras locked out of their chemistry room because their teacher hasn’t shown up. They’ve called Screech to open the class but, in the meantime, Megan seems to think that pulling on the door really, really hard will open it. Sorry, Megan. She-Ra you are not.vlcsnap-2014-08-13-16h07m52s89

Since Screech is an idiot, he hears “unlock the Chemistry room” as “there’s a fire burning out of control.” So, rather, than pull the fire alarm and evacuate, he shows up with a fire extinguisher to put out the non-existent blaze. Screech is pissed off that they would dare expect him to do his fucking job.vlcsnap-2014-08-13-16h08m40s8 read more

S1, E13, “The Love Song of Mr. Aaron Seaver”

The Seavers are preparing for their annual Bowling game against the Kuismans. They really want to win this year because the Kuismans have defeated them for three years straight. They think they’ve got a pretty good shot this year though, because of Mike “Strike” Seaver!

Wait, what? They’re actually relying on Mike for a change. Speaking of Mike, here he comes in now proclaiming he needs Carol to write him a Neosymbolim poem for a cultural student, Juliet.Jason. But Maggie and Jason doesn’t approve because what Mike does to attract this girl needs to come from his heart. Carol agrees though. Why? Because Ben demonstrated to Carol how Mike would go about attracting Juliet by himself. Let’s just say, it didn’t go well. read more
