Well, Americans voted, and Barack Obama will remain president for another four years. Whether you voted Obama or Romney, at least we’re lucky to live in a country where we have the power to make our own choices, right? On to some other news, you can make your choice again by picking what you want to watch on TV, and we’re here to help you with our recommendations for the night. 🙂
Last week’s The Neighbors was fantastically funny and so sweet it made me “aww” several times. Debbie became crazed while trying to plan Abby’s birthday, and that led to unhappiness for everyone. After explaining to their alien neighbors what a birthday & birthday party was, when she finally explained to Jackie why she was behaving that way (after everything started falling apart), Jackie took it upon herself to get her alien friends to help sort it all out so Debbie could relax and enjoy the day. In the end, it was successful, even if it wasn’t perfectly the way Debbie had first envisioned. Also, Jackie convinced her husband Larry to learn more about the humans by going to work with Marty. Marty showed up in a hard hat, short-sleeved dress shirt, tie, dress pants, construction/hiking boots, a lunch pail, and a shovel, which was hysterically funny. In the end, though, one of my “aww” moments was Larry finishing Marty’s accounting work so Marty could go home to help Debbie and enjoy their daughter’s birthday party. The other “aww” moment for me was when Reggie tried to give Amber a birthday present, even though it wasn’t her birthday. His first gift (a tile with all the events of the universe or whatever since the day of her birth drawn on it) was amazing. But then she argued that basically, she missed her old home and friends, etc. So he surprised her at the end by painting a beautiful mural on her wall of her old street with a card/plaque thing that said something about her old street from her new friend, happy non-birthday. It was adorable.
I love this show because it’s so wacky and so crazy, but so much fun and can be so sweet like last week. It’s one of my favorite new comedies in a while.
On tonight’s episode, “50 Shades of Green,” Marty and Debbie find out all the facts of alien love when Zabvronian mating season coincides with their wedding anniversary. Debbie longs for a little more romance in her marriage after she learns about the more cerebral Zabvronian way, while Jackie Joyner-Kersee is fascinated by humans’ more physical approach. Meanwhile, a handsome jock invites Amber to a make-out party and she decides to go, with Reggie Jackson tagging along. (Gotta love the play on the title, huh?)
