The Halloween episodes are now something I look forward as much as I did the ones on Roseanne. There was no mockery or spite between them, just honest affection. When the black lights came on and Scully and Hitchcock's desks looked like a crime scene, loved it! Not that I was a big Babysitters Club dork or anything. I also enjoyed her walking back on her segregation comment. That's why it took a couple beats. But you're so good looking! So, I've been binging through the whole series for the first time and wasn't going to comment, but decided why not, since I have a few thoughts on my mind.
I also adored Holt's use of Cheddar! And the evidence piles up: I really am Santiago without the competitive streak. It was fun to see the earnestness beneath all of the bravado that we've only had glimpses of before. I love that dog so much. Though I'm a fan of her typically, because she brings something different to the ensemble. This was a good episode. I looked him and his credits up too.
I do still have my Caboodle though and it looks just as good as Amy's did. When Amy comes out of the break room when the pizzas arrive the camera is focused straight at the door and her, and I think Gina would have been to the left of the camera. I'd like to see them pairing up together in next year's heist. I was so happy to see Cheddar again, except he didn't get enough screen time. And of course, he even relied on the fact that he knew Charles would not be able to resist telling Jake the truth.
He looked so much like Boyle. It would have been cool if she'd been in the background in different scenes. I've not only not hated her, I've actually laughed at her antics. Now put on a smile, pork chop. Holt's ruthlessness is using Charles was excellent. Also enjoyed Holt and Boyle, who are always fun at being polar opposites in a lot of ways, but still finding common ground. But despite that and not being a massive fan of the character, I loved pretty much every minute of this episode.
I actually love the twist of him actually not being involved, after all. Fortunately, Mantzoukas has yet to rear his head this season which he will, I only hope it's brief and the New Girl crossover was a single scene. Edited October 19, 2016 by tennisgurl These are always great, even if you can see the outcome coming from a ways out. Bill ended up being a surprising highlight in what could have been a throwaway character. I got a good chuckle out of Cheddar, the pizza gag, and Bill. I need more of Amy and Rosa together, please. I called it being Gina early on since Terry was an obvious red herring and I thought it was weird that she would randomly get taken out of the equation for so long.
People just do something for a laugh, or to compete, then they do it again, and before you know it, it's time-honoured and respected. Jake's reactions every time he realized just how off the wall Bill was, was excellent. Good use of the flashbacks in this one. As a huge fan of The Babysitters Club, I was dying laughing at all those references. I couldn't stop laughing when he came in with that marching band in the opening scene. Yet, so far in these last four episodes she's been in? This episode was brilliant, I laughed all the way through so I won't list everything but I think bingpot! I just don't like Gina. I really hope the show continues to explore more of this duo in this season.
Best episode of the season for me so far. I need my own Cheddar so adorable. He trained him for a month to find plaques? I rewatched it and didn't see her. Because it can't be said enough: the Baby-Sitters Club running gag was absolutely brilliant. I have to echo all those who voiced their love for the Baby-Sitters Club references. Hitchcock saying he would be watching Terry's ass, omg, I found that disturbing and funny! I wasn't sure about the last one. This was basically perfect, even if it meant a win for Gina, my least favorite character although I still like her a lot.
Meanwhile, Amy and Jake continue to be adorable, even when their relationship isn't explicitly mentioned. I swear, I hope someone has already giffed Holt walked into the station to the tune of Ride of the Valkyries. I've never read them, but even without knowing the first thing, I know they're something Amy would love. The whole thing always irked me and apparently, some B99 writer felt the same. To see it dredged up and addressed all these years later, it gives me a happy, nerded-out feeling, like Amy with a binder! If Andre Braugher does not win an Emmy, there is no justice in Hollywood. I love that Rosa was fully invested in trying to get Amy a win and read all of Amy's plans and guide, including all The Babysitter Club stuff.
