OMG SHOW.  
Seriously. First of all, you can never go wrong with gratuitious Ghostbusters references. From Reitman University, to Doctors Stantz and Zeddmore of the Parapsycology Dept., to the PKE Metres, to OMG LOUIS, to codenames Gatekeeper and Keymaster, OMG THERE IS NO DANA, I was dying and giggling and occasionally screaming into a pillow with glee.

AND THERE WAS AN EGON SPENGLER PHYSICS PRIZE!!!!!!!

Secondly, BODY-SWAP FTW!!! I don't think I have ever enjoyed a bitch-slap-girlie-fight more. I gleefully await the day we get Handcuffed Together, and/or Posing-As-Marrieds-In-The-Suburbs (or the popular varient, Posting-As-Newlyweds-In-Vegas). Story-dice, they are the awesome.

Thirdly, how much do I love the whole Lacey and Wendy friendship? It's totally the emotional core of this show, for me. Here we have Wendy giving up her dream guy because she totally cock-blocked Lacey last week and is feeling guilty, and then on top of that, we've got Noser trying to be all "Stoicly Having a Crush From Afar" before also falling for the awesomeness that is Tyler. And then we cap off the entire parfait of awesome with excellent MM & WW bonding, complete with Manly Arm Pat and matching ice-packs.

Look, I know all the cool kids are 'shipping WW/MM, but I can't help it. I 'ship WW/Tyler omg so hardcore, and totally dig MM/Lacey while at the same time wanting to pet Noser's hair and feed him cookies over his unrequited Lacey worship and sorta kinda hope that someday a long time from now in the end, he wins Lacey's heart because his own heart is totally pure, while MM pines magestically.

I'm complex.

OMG IDA AS CEILING CAT!

ZOMBIE PALETE-CLEANSER.

And lastly... How much did I love pineal-gland-lacking Fratboy Louis and Relationship Expert Sorority girl Allie? This show continues to rock hardcore with the casting of one-off guest stars. Seriously.

next week: thawed Kevin Sorbo! HURRAH!

All the cool kids are not shipping WW/MM. I am cool and I don't totally ship them (meaning the fics that are ww/mm are awesome if they're done right). I just love the WW/MM friendship. I ship Lacey/MM so hard and I'm with you WW/Tyler is freaking awesome.

And if anyone can pine magestically...it is MM.

He would pine like an ancient forest from the dawn of time. I believe it in my soul.

Okay, I laughed so hard at that coffee almost came out of my nose. Very true to life.

Haven't watched this one yet, still annoyed that "The Cursed Tuba Contingency" reminded me that I'm a hopeless romantic. I'd been trying to forget that...

I still blame you for putting me onto this awesome show :P
ljc: the middleman (art crawl)taraljc on 5th August 2008 05:30 (UTC)
WIN!

Finally sat down to watch the ep. Most awesome. Egon Spengler Physics Prize aside, the Ivor Shanding Medal had me squeeing.

Oh yeah, and if definitely had arms :P

Allie and Louis were great. Hopefully they can turn up as auxiliaries in later episodes; kinda like that old episode of the Avengers where substitute Emma Peel got to be Emma Peel for an episode cos the real one was out of the picture :P

Zombie Palette Cleanser IS genius.

Lacey's still my favourite character. The fact that everyone is looking out for her happiness was very sweet. Poor MM.

And I'm done.

WHAT THE SHAKESPEARE IS THIS, AND WHERE CAN I GET SOME??

..Okay, if this is Middleman, that's me converted. There's always space for another fandom.

However, the claimed "party with decadence to make Caligula blush" looked about as decadent as a high school sock hop. They should've kept it unseen and described.

A particularly restrained and boring high school hop. That was one pathetic party.

I chose to believe the debauchery was on the upper floors.

You forgot the "It definitely had arms..." bit that Louis did.

It finally downloaded, and I finally watched it, and you are so right, and oh god I would have had so much more work done today without the awesome.

And poor Noser. If he was less fictional and I was less taken I'd steal him. He is not sufficiently appreciated where he is.
