They make DOGS for their polygamy cult?!

"Smell of Success" is such a fascinating episode of Pushing Daisies. Why is Chuck wearing sixties clothing now, instead of fifties? (Will she someday catch up to the present?) Will Paul Reubens come back and expose Chuck's secret smell? How many shots of Kristin Chenoweth's bouncy boobs can they fit in one episode? Will Lee Pace ever stop looking adorable in black t-shirts? And most importantly, how awesome is Ellen Greene singing "Morning Has Broken"? The answer is ALL OF THE AWESOME. ALL OF IT.

I keep wondering whose dog died so that Digby could live, though.

Today on Mark Watches we got to discuss one of my favorite Buffy episodes ever, "I Only Have Eyes for You." SO GOOD. I never realized that the kid playing the ghost is also Auggie Anderson from Covert Affairs. Which... I haven't even watched that show in a long time, but omg come here Auggie and let me munch on you.

Unfortunately today on Mark Reads, Mark talked about the problematic portrayal of Orcs and how Tolkien used the term "Mongol-types" when describing their physical appearance, and the comments exploded with OMG HOW DARE YOU CALL TOLKIEN A DIRTY RACIST I HAVE PROOF THAT HE HATED NAZIS. And now that's the most commented-on post ever on Mark Reads. *headdesk*

It's just like... look you guys can we just accept that LotR is not without its problematic elements and go back to talking about war allegories and how cute Dom and Billy are? Because that is way more fun than having the exact same argument fifty times.

I do still love being a moderator though.

How many shots of Kristin Chenoweth's bouncy boobs
Sorry, I stopped reading for a few seconds.

Okay, I'm back.

Christopher Gorham! I didn't realize that either. He was great in Jake 2.0.

Because that is way more fun than having the exact same argument fifty times.
BASICALLY.

I do still love being a moderator though.
I love having magic editing power. Mostly because I can fix people's HTML for them.

BLUE BARRED!
Seriously though, her breasts are like a whole other character in the show! In this episode they have her in a mermaid outfit that's ridiculously low-cut and that binds her feet together so she can only move around by HOPPING.

I like having access to the behind-the-scenes stuff on the sites. Makes me feel like I'm making the internet a better place, one deleted spam comment at a time.
I seriously think "I Only Have Eyes for You" is my favorite episode from season 2. Not as epic as Innocence or Passion or Becoming, but Sarah Michelle Geller and David Borenaz just sell the emotion so perfectly. Tomorrow is "Go Fish" though which... :| NO TY.

And omg I didn't see the comments at Mark Reads. I'm not a mod there because way back in the day when Mark asked me to help mod (which was back when he was going through Doctor Who) he asked if I wanted to mod at Mark Reads too, and I said no because he was reading The Book Theif at the time which was something I didn't really intend to read. I've been meaning to participate in the comments over there though during LotR because those books were HUGE for me in high school but I haven't gotten around to it. That sounds super frustrating though.
The thing is, usually the comments at Reads are a lot calmer than at Watches! It was just this one day that everything exploded.

I forgot how rapetastic Go Fish was until I re-watched it last night. That scene where everybody is victim-blaming Buffy for her clothing choices? DO NOT WANT.
