Drunk Ron is drunk! Also awesome.

Speaking of which: How great was the disparity in popularity (nope, did not rhyme that on purpose) of April and Ann with the Goddesses? I especially loved their respective craft projects.

I find it completely believable that Ron Swanson would know more than your average Lowe's employee.

One thing that's not working for me lately is Chris, especially since he started Jerry's daughter. I loved the silent gag of April changing the mouth of Jerry's Mr. Potato Head costume from a smile to a frown, but otherwise in this ongoing storyline the writers have Chris amped up to 11. I find it hard to believe that the Chris we have come to know would be so completely oblivious to how uncomfortable he is making someone else.

The look of total happiness when he fixed that sink? It was like he was experiencing Christmas and a meat tornado all at once.

I agree about the Chris thing. It's weird. Also, why would an adult woman behave that way in front of her father?

Creepy Orin and Lil' Sebastian!

Andy and April are really a sweet couple.

That's not really working for me either. I guess I don't necessarily find it unbelievable, I just find it sort of repetitive, squicky, and pointless. It's the exact same thing every time. The Jerry character has always made me uncomfortable anyway because everyone's so mean to him, but I'm probably oversensitive.

I love when the show ends with one character unexpectedly doing a kindness for another. BUT. They have to watch out with that if it's not going to become tired. Loved Leslie's meat/Westerns/solitude birthday bash for Ron. Loved Leslie's Club For Swanson Wannabes. Wept copiously when April told Leslie she loved her at the wedding. And I did like Tom's video for Leslie last night, and her over-the-top crying was obviously meant to be funny and not just a heartstring-puller, but still, they need to watch that. Because they kinda do it a lot.

That whole subplot actually was a little awkward for me. It wasn't just that Tom kept trying to weasel his way in there; it was WAY over the top with the rugs with his face and the logos everywhere and the video (some sad wrestling over the remote was Leslie's only reaction before giving up? She was uncharacteristically ineffectual at getting him to take the rest of it down too). And then he just happened to have also made a video all about Leslie. It was too broad for me, I guess. And it felt like set designers had been in there, not like Tom had done it. I know the joke is Tom spends a ridiculous amount of money on that stuff, but still. However, the party was hilarious, and I loved Ron and Ann. I would totally follow Ron Swanson around and learn the ways of handiness. I also cracked up over Andy and April's toolbox.

When April turned Jerry's smile upside down I nearly died.

I find that I'm ok with the "everyone mean to Jerry" bits because they balance it by Jerry being fundamentally happy with himself and his life (not to mention that he's apparently got quite the large penis, according to the season opener!). The writers do manage to work in little pro-Jerry bits.

Yeah, Jerry's whole thing is, "Life is good and I am only a few years away from retirement. So WHO CARES."
And again the penis thing.
He has a great wife, some amazing hobbies (the painting) and I think he and Donna get each other.

Yeah, off the top of my head, I can't think of a time when Donna has really bashed Jerry.

I also REALLY didn't like the Tom/Leslie plot. When he's acting all crazy about Entertainment 7wenty, I need Jean-Ralphio there to balance it out somehow. We know that Tom can be sweet, but he could have torpedoed her whole campaign right there, and that didn't work for me.

Loved the Orin sighting!

Donna strapped Jerry to the roof of her Mercedes when she drove everyone home when they were all drunk at the bar in The Fight. But that cracked me up to no end.

I don't like the Chris storyline either, I'm hoping it gives us something better in the end.

I'm watching some S2 episodes on Netflix, and one of my favorite running gags is how Leslie always manages to make a fool of herself in front of Councilman Howser. He always looks so exasperated with her. I love it.
