Princesses: Long Island: The Worst Lines of the Premiere

<i>Princesses: Long Island</i>: The Worst Lines of the Premiere

I can't imagine anyone went into Bravo's Princesses: Long Island expecting anything other than what we saw in the pilot, aptly titled, "You Had Me at Shalom." I mean, surely Bravo only settled on name after the FCC shot down just plain calling the series JAPS, right? (That would explain why there are a few non-Jewish women shoehorned in there.) Rather than go so far as to dignify these ladies with no firm grasp on reality with individual reactionary descriptions, or the network for so brazenly perpetuating ugly stereotypes, let's just talk about the very worst lines of the pilot and call it a day.

The government shutdown is on and furloughs are in full effect on Veep's seventh Season 2 episode, titled -- appropriately enough -- "Shutdown."

<I>Does Someone Have to Go?</I>:  Work Sucks…. If You Are On This Show

I have watched every season of Survivor, a lot of Bad Girls Club and even Are You Hot?, but I'm pretty sure I've never watched a more mean-spirited show than the new Fox reality series Does Someone Have to Go?.

<i>Veep</i>: The Episode’s Best Insults

Following Vice President Meyer's disastrous official state trip to Finland last week, Veep was back on its home turf in "Andrew," the title of the show's sixth Season 2 episode and also the name of the Veep's ex-husband (played by David Pasquesi) who we hadn't met before tonight. Maybe it was having to make nice with the House majority leader, Mary King; maybe it was her daughter Katherine's 21st birthday celebration; or, more likely, maybe it was just having her ex around -- who still has the power to stir up latent feelings of loathing-tinged lust inside her -- but Selina kept her tongue in check for most of the episode, foregoing her usual spray of profane insults. And, for the most part, the show followed suit. It was still funny, just not quite as bracingly mean as we're accustomed to.

Selina's European (non-)apology tour took her to Finland on last night's Veep, resulting in the funniest episode of the season and perhaps the all-time funniest episode in the show's young history.

Community: It’s Time For Saying Goodbye

<i>Community</i>: It’s Time For Saying Goodbye

In the immortal words of T.S. Eliot, "Well now that's done: and I'm glad it's over." Or maybe, "This is the way the world Community ends: Not with a bang but a whimper" would be more apropos. Whichever Eliot line you chose to go with, Community's fourth season (and, potentially, series) finale "Advanced Introduction to Finality" was a definite off-note on which to end a season that was already often out of tune.

It's comedy night in DC as Selina Meyer prepares to sing a rousing satirical song at "The Vic Allen Dinner." That's both the title of the episode and the grand fĂȘte where she performs a version of the Paul Simon staple "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" that targets her nemesis, Kent Davison, who has already royally pissed her off by releasing a photo from last week's daring hostage rescue that displays her in a less-than-flattering light and makes her an Internet meme ma'am in the process.

Zero Dark Veep? That could have been the title of this week's episode, "Hostages," in which the administration finally did something about that Uzbekistan hostage crisis that's been simmering on the backburner since the premiere.

With the midterm cluster[redacted] behind them, "Signals" sends Selina Meyer and her staff on to the next disaster, which in this case awaits them in North Carolina where a pig picnic organized by the state's pork board will serve as the launching pad for POTUS's new "U.S. Hay" campaign aimed at increasing the administration's facetime with rural America. Selina is being dispatched to attend this bit of political theater, but two personal bombshells trip her up from the jump. First, her daughter Catherine pens a controversial review of the pro-Palestinian (and Oscar-nominated) documentary 5 Broken Cameras that threatens to upset ties with Israel. Then, a tabloid report exposes all the secret signals she and her staff use to extricate her from unpleasant situations... like a pig roast. Given all that tsuris, it's no wonder that the tart-tongued insults were flying fast and furious last night. Here were the episode's finest put-downs.
