Sure. I'm snort-laughing, but this sure makes me wanna dance.
Hey. This is crazy...but I kinda love it.

Alice Murphy is the long suffering, and frankly bitchy, manager at TelAmeriCorp who reminds me a bit too much of a woman I used to work with--which is the genius of this show. The employees seem like the crazy people every office has and sometimes the only way to get through a long, boring day is to roll up on some fools with your airsoft guns.
Alice is being evaluated but because she had to be an adult and take away the boy's toys, they threaten to give her a low grade until she gives them back the guns. While they enjoy their free day, Alice gets the boot from Travis, played by Daniel Stern. I don't know why they didn't work a 'Home Alone' reference into this episode, but moving on.
The guys soon realize their mistake when Travis separates them and takes down the cubicles, even whipping out his dick to scare them off. Everyone in the office is just as unhappy as the boys are, especially poor JetSet who just wants to wear his hair slicked down. Though his fro is pretty cool.
They finally do get Travis when he violently kills Jillian's birds with the airsoft guns. One of the managers from an animal company refuses to work with a bird killer and Alice is able to make her somewhat triumphant return to the office.
Two of the best scenes came as a result of the late, great JetSet. When Travis insists on calling him by his real name he gets upset and leaves with his beloved cactus, "MY NAME IS JET-MOTHER-F***ING-SET! And you can call me Patrick Swayze cuz I'm ghost!'
Later in a show of solidarity, Blake, Ders and Adam slick down their hair like his and we get pixelated dicks. Blurred dicks? I thought this show was on Comedy Central? Oh well.

In last night's episode the guys got weird over the Super Moon and lack of sleep.
Scaredy cat Adam was so disturbed by a horror movie Blake and Ders had been watching, he gets freaked out by a painting of "Dr. TelAmeriCorp" Blake finds in the basement while the office is being renovated. Jillian complicates things by not telling them the full story behind the painting and they set out to discover the mysteries of the building. (Nothing could ever go wrong there.)
Later that night the boys go in search of some paranormal activity, discovering blood on the floor and hearing screams throughout the office. I loved that Blake convinced himself, and the other guys, that TelAmeriCorp was truly haunted, because why wouldn't it be?
After encountering the "spirit" of Dr. TelAmeriCorp in the bathroom, played by the always creepy Robert Englund, Adam becomes possessed and it's up to his best buds to exorcise him after their satanic ritual using Montez's hamburger meat doesn't work. Soon they realize that the blood and screams came from Bill, who had cut his finger and that Dr. TelAmeriCorp was just a former employee that their boss Alice became a little too obsessed with, having a painting made of him. That still doesn't explain his sudden appearance, or maybe that was just Adam's no sleep hallucinations. The escalation of them just wanting to watch the Super Moon to cocooning their friend with insulation as an effort to trap the demon inside of them is absolutely ridiculous, but that's why I love this show.
I'm still laughing at them sticking Adam on the roof of the car as they drove way to take Bill to the hospital, and how cute did Blake look in those glasses?!

I'm happy to be adding 'Workaholics' to my weekly tv schedule. I'm one of those "loose buttholes" that discovered the show late, but hey I love it now. The show started it's fourth season with a gross but hilarious episode featuring Bill, one of TelAmeriCorp's many oddball employees.
When the guys learn that they won't be invited to help roast Bill, they take it upon themselves to find out everything they can about "Weekend Bill" so that they can upstage Montez at the roast. They follow him around for a day and witness him doing yoga naked and engaging in his embarrassing hobby of being a robot statue. Bill doesn't even want the roast, but the guys are determined to make it make it fun for him, and themselves.
This leads to Ders, Adam and Blake taking over the roast all while dressed as Mike Myer's many characters and the party takes a strange turn when Bill whips out a gun and takes all the other employees hostage. After he "kills" Adam, he makes Montez eat Wayman's boogers and poor Jet Set has to poop his pants, although Jillian should be given props for volunteering to crap herself.
Blake tries to push the prank a little further by telling Bill to get Ders to admit that 'Wayne's World' is the best of Myer's films, which isn't a lie, but they're made when 'The Love Guru' loving Adam comes back from the dead. The pranks on this show never really work out the way they should and the roast was a two for one special when a fake SWAT team headed by Alice's brother Brad tricks the guys into thinking they're all going to jail. It's what they get for saying "chicks aren't funny."
Perhaps a slightly meta reference to all the real world talk about female comedians. The references to Myer's movies were absolutely silly, but so are his movies and even though the guys tend to agree on most things. of course they would be split on which is the best. Despite the gag inducing title, "Booger Nights" was a great start for what i'm sure is going to be a great, extended fourth season.
If you're new to the show, get weird and check out the first three seasons. It's totally worth it, and occasionally the guys take off their shirts.
OhforpitySAKE. I love, love, LOVE Parker Posey. I'm going to try not to use the words, "indie" or "quirky"...but it's nearly impossible when discussing Quirky Indie-Queen PARKER POSEY! She turns 44 today!
My absolute favorite Parker Posey film is Best in Show...for so many reasons: 1.) She portrays a tightly-wound dog nut, and 2.) She portrays a tightly-wound dog nut.
This is for my nutty dog friends...and you know who you are, right? RIGHT????!!
