Television - 30 Rock is currently at the top of it’s game. Slapping around the rest of NBC’s Thursday night line up, it continues to be fresh and funny.
Unfortunately The Office has become soapy with its Jim/Pam will-they-wont-they. While most viewers would love to see them engaged and married as a suitable ending for the show, I think it’s the show’s creative duty to split them apart. A fairy tale ending would not fit in with the show’s experimental, awkward structure. Staying true to itself would mean everyone remaining in florescent purgatory for the rest of eternity.
Film - Persepolis. This French film about a girl growing up in Iran was nominated for Best Animated (losing to Ratatuoille). Striking visuals and imagery but not much plot.
Music - Foxboro Hot Tubs. Aka Green Day under a pseudonym releasing a classic rock album. Yeah. Some of the best parts of American Idiot full fleshed in this release.
