Some days get busy. Other days I just get forgetful. I will not say which of these occurred the past couple days, but I will absolutely lump all three of these days into one catch-up-blog-post!
On the 5th day of Sitcoms, my TV gave to me….
The Office – Christmas Wishes/Dwight Christmas
Christmas Wishes is a fantastic Erin (aka Kelly, for those of you who remember that) episode. Erin is one of the best characters, in my opinion, especially as the seasons went on. She goes in a new direction in this episode, which is really fun to watch. Dwight Christmas is also a great Erin episode, for all of the Erin/Pete fans out there. The way they brought everything full circle from Jim/Pam to Pete/Erin is so cool to watch, too. This episode is also a great one to watch because of the chemistry between Dwight and Jim.
On the 6th day of Sitcoms, my TV gave to me….
First of the New Girl holiday episodes, the 23rd captures all the awkwardness of the holidays with one of my favorite lines from the show (“What are you doing in [the bathroom]?” “Eating cookies and avoiding confrontation.”). If you’re a fan of the show, it’s a nice refresher to go back and watch this episode. It’s got all of the fun of New Girl without the corniness that has grown over the seasons.
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this episode. Billy Eichner is always a great bonus.
Bonus bonus: “THIS IS MY NIGHTMARE.”
On the 7th day of Sitcoms, my TV gave to me…
When I reread the plot, I didn’t remember this episode being anything special. When I rewatched it, I thought it was completely hilarious. Mindy Kaling is brilliant with one-liners and timing. I adore her writing and acting; I think she’s phenomenal. A plot summary or my nice words don’t really do this episode justice.
2014’s holiday episode was also really good, but I didn’t like how little it focused on Mindy as an actual person. Still great though.
