#5) Jack Savoretti's Cover of "Ring of Fire" On Greek (Listen to it here.) - This slow, contemplative take on Johnny Cash's classic song was the perfect background music for Casey and Cappie's bittersweet, alcohol-induced reunion, and it went so well with the existential angst of the whole episode.
#4) Dan Out-Blairs Blair On Gossip Girl - Dan and Blair. Blair and Dan. I always thought their relationship consisted solely of a mutual hatred and a shared love for Serena, but I have to admit the combination of their animosity, intelligence, and wit makes for some very amusing television. This week they went head to head while working at the same internship at a fashion magazine, but since Dan knows Blair better than the other interns, he didn't fall victim to her sabotage. For example, when she tried to get him to take their boss the wrong pair of shoes, he told her: "I didn't date Serena van der Woodsen for two years and not come away knowing that those are Marc Jacobs. And they're mustard." Even better was Blair's attempt to distract Dan, when she yelled, "Oh look! It's Georgina's baby!" (Too soon?) But in the end, Blair didn't bring down her full force of wrath on Dan because she promised to fight fair, and it looked like they might almost be something marginally close to friends, until Dan made a preemptive strike to sabotage her instead, not trusting her promise to make it a clean fight. One awkward public scuffle on the floor of a fashion event later and they were both fired. But wait! Dan threw himself under the bus so Blair could keep her dream internship. Maybe Dair isn't over after all...
#3) What Do a Former Nazi, a Six-Hour Erection, and Ed Begley Jr. Have In Common? They Were All Featured In This Week's Episode of Off The Map! - That's right, folks. Ed Begley Jr. plus cast regular Rachelle Lefevre made for two Veronica Mars alumni in one episode for the second week in a row. (Last week Tessa Thompson guest starred.) As long as this show can keep up with the ludicrously random plot threads, continuous Veronica Mars alumni, and juicy/sappy doctor background stories, I will gladly keep watching.
#2) Community Makes Dungeons & Dragons Cool - A show has to be pretty secure with its sense of humor and characters to pull off a stunt like having an entire episode unfold as a role-playing game, and luckily for us, Community is 100% confident in its tone and humor. The highlight was probably Annie (playing the role of "Hector the Well-Endowed") and Abed's (playing a maiden along their path) verbally dictated sex scene (including some hand motions), which ended with Annie--I mean, Hector the Well-Endowed--declaring, "I stroke her hair lovingly and spoon her for the appropriate amount of time before leaving." This prompted Troy (who was taking notes on their encounter) to ask, "How long is that?" This show is amazing.
#1) Michael and Holly Reunited On The Office - We were all wondering when those crazy lovebirds were finally going to get back together, and time was a-tickin' since this is Steve Carell's final season on The Office. I loved how the whole episode led up to their adorable reunion on the rooftop, showing how they think exactly the same. Dwight was particularly amusing once he discovered that Holly could be used as a kind of tracker to find Michael just by following her whims for egg rolls and free stress balls. We all knew Holly and Michael would eventually find their way back to each other.
*Will Forte's guest appearance on Parks & Recreation as a Twilight-obsessed dad who chained himself in Leslie's office in order to get her to put the Twilight books in the Pawnee time capsule.
*Chuck took down Volkoff, got one family member back (his mother), and added a new one (Ellie's new baby) on this week's Chuck. In the words of General Beckman, "Get this man a chopper."
*Watching Jules watch Grayson watch Field of Dreams while crying on Cougar Town. After all, Grayson's tears are Jules' "double rainbow."
*The ultimate douche face-off on The Good Wife: Cary and Blake went toe to toe in this week's episode, and the levels of hostility and testosterone were matched only by the undercurrent of homoeroticism.
*This quote from Angelo on this week's Top Chef: "I wanted to be a fruit stylist, back in the day."
