It's blogging so good it gave me a case of the vapors. Wholly-readable episode breakdowns (sorry PopWatch) are a rare occurrence, like watchable episodes of "How I Met Your Mother"--a stale, "just add water" affair. NPH is the show's one bright light. The rest of the cast are all annoying, forgettable faces. Especially Band Camp and that poor man's Fallon they've got for the main dude. Then of course there's Saget's narration. Somewhere The Wonder Years' Daniel Stern is doing the Mutombo finger wag.
Anyway, back to "Daily Intel", in a stroke of hardcore tv blogging genius, these people even googled Lily's past hookups list. Chris Rovzar and Jessica Pressler are said geniuses. I hope to blog like them when I grow up. Check them out:
- Watch how Chuck takes a sort of sweet moment and makes it progressively more disgusting. After Serena tells him to be sensitive because Blair didn't get into Yale, he replies thoughtfully: "Yale, the only thing she wanted more than me. That would be painful." "Chuck, she's embarrassed, so we've gotta give her time to lick her wounds," replies Serena. "Maybe I could lick them for her," Chuck wonders. Ew. That doesn't even make sex sense. Still, Plus 2.
- Dan: "Do you think the Humphreys have a crest that Jenny could sew onto one of my cardigans?" There are several fine levels to that awkward, self-aware statement. Plus 3.
- Wait, Chuck had Carter expelled from the secret gentleman's club? How? We desperately want that nonsensical and annoying plotline to get brushed aside, but that sort of felt like a rip-off. Minus 2, because it would be like if on Seinfeld one day George was like, "Oh, yeah, Susan died. Anyway."
