(Anyone still) Watching Ellie? - 05/06/03

Anyone still watching this show? Last night's wasn't too hot, although the last scene where they were all playing in the subway with Edgar playing the "blindman" role was pretty good.

But next episode looks promising, because of the return of

Ellie (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) reluctantly takes a gig doing a commercial for a fruit juice containing alcohol that seems to be targeting teenagers. Meanwhile, Don Zimmerman (Don Lake) and Ingvar (Peter Stormare) get Ellie and Ben (Darren Boyd) in on a sure bet - a race horse who is certain to win at the track thanks to a special veterinarian "elixir" that causes the horse to bolt. Steve Carell and Lauren Bowles also star. George Takei ("Star Trek") guest stars in a cameo appearance.

Strange, becase this actor's name was NOT in the credits, so I was beginning to wonder. (Forgive the spoiler tags, but I'd rather be safe than sorry...)

I liked last night's episode. Maybe it was just the John Denver. Upright Citizen's Brigade has made it so I laugh anytime I hear a John Denver song. "Sunshine... on my nutsack... makes me happy."

I watched some of it last season, and didn't like it. I watched some of it this season, and it is still horrible. However, I really like JLD, so I will watch it if I can ever remember when it is on.

Yeah, still watching. I hate the stupid slapstick crap they've added to the beginning of each episode. Last night was good for some laughs, though. Everything Edgar does is funny, and the John Denver stuff was pretty entertaining. Still, it's so much weaker than last season that it's a bit depressing to watch, particularly when we get brief glimpses of how talented JLD can be.
