Wili takes off for lunch with Tom Ford and tosses Marc the opportunity to lead an ad meeting, because one paragraph ago he educated her in the ways of the human heart. I love Tom Ford, but I don't want him around my food.
"Cable we can totally just steal from upstairs. Oh, and we both have cell phones, so we don't need a landline, plus I gave that number out to too many weirdos anyway... There's electric and gas and maintenance and Bergdorf's. God, it is so hard to know which one to sacrifice, you know?" Betty says some portentous thing about how she has to tell Amanda something, but Amanda already knows: she is moving out. And why? No reason whatsoever. "Because your family needs you right now... And you're good like that."
But this show's not. So toward the end of March, they're putting this show on hold for a couple months so they can do an hour-long comedy block before Meredith/Addison, because 30 Rock finally won enough awards that the clueless old white dudes who run the entire universe were like, "Comedies with strong female characters and critical acclaim? Sounds good on a Thursday night." And I don't know if you've ever seen Samantha Who?, but it's recommended.
Have you seen it? It's about a girl trying as hard as she can to be kind to those around her while figuring out what she wants her life to be like. She's innocent in some ways, naïve even, but she has insight into the human heart that gives her the upper hand. Her family is a piece of work, but she loves them, no matter how much she's got going on. She doesn't want to be materialistic, but she does love shiny things and bright colors. She gets in over her head all the time, and spends as much time cleaning up messes as she does making them. Some of her friends are shallow and scary, but that's only because they're hiding depths you'll be excited to learn about slowly, over time. She is a good person, a woman with faults, and areas of blindness, but an accompanying faith in herself and in others that is as inspiring to watch as her wry sense of humor, her belief in fighting for what's right, and her capacity for joy.
Sound like anybody you used to know?
