1.) Joss Whedon to direct an episode of 'Glee': Two of my favorite things in the world coming together. Excuse while I go jump up and down. (Side note: If you don't know who Joss Whedon is, you shouldn't even be reading this blog. You've got some serious Wikipedia-ing to do and at least seven seasons of genius to catch up on before you are even allowed to read this.) Joss is awesome, 'Glee' is awesome, music is awesome; I see no way in which this could be anything less than phenomenal. Here's hoping for some subtle 'Buffy' references like we saw in the awesome episode of 'The Office' Joss directed in season 3. Which brings me to...
2.) 'The Office': Pure unadulterated hilarity. Until this week, season 6 had been slightly lacking in the funny department compared with earlier seasons (although the Jim and Pam wedding ep was wonderful), but this Thursday was chock full of LOLs (and if you know me, you know I don't use my "LOLs" lightly, mostly because I feel like my IQ drops ten points every time I use a tween acronym in everyday speech, but that's beside the point). This week's was by far the funniest episode of the season thus far.

4.) 'Dollhouse': Despite the ominous news this week that Fox will not be airing 'Dollhouse' during November sweeps, I still call this week a win. Friday's episode was probably my favorite of the second season, mainly because it focused on Sierra and Victor, two of my favorite characters. Also, we got to see just how good Boyd is at his job. As demonstrated by this quote: "In the van outside you'll find containers of sulfuric acid, a plastic sheet, and a bag of tools." (Hint: They're not building a Slip 'n' Slide.)
5.) "All The Right Moves" by OneRepublic: My new favorite song of all time. Just the right mix of monotonous synthesized percussion and hypnotizing falsetto. See the creepy masquerade ball music video here.
BONUS (Okay, I couldn't narrow it down to five, sue me): 'Modern Family': Just watch it, okay? Because I'm going to put it on my Top 5 list every week, and eventually you're going to get tired of not understanding the ridiculous references and quotes I will no doubt allude to, like this: "Claire likes to say, 'You can be part of the problem, or part of the solution,' but I happen to believe you can be both." If you enjoy laughing, you will love 'Modern Family.' It's like 'Arrested Development: The Younger Years.'
So there you have it, my five (or six) favorite things from this week. Tune in next week for more idolizing Joss Whedon and 'Modern Family' quotes.
