2 great episodes in a row. not good, great.
this week (last night) i actually like shirley.
for the 1st time ever.
she always gets on my nerves most episodes.
but here she was a fooze ball terror and teamed up with jeff to try to defeat some german foozeball players on campus.
as shirley helped him improve his game, she revealed parts of herself, noting that the game brought out the worst in her.
jeff explained how he was ridiculed for fooze ball and walked away from it. shirley also played as a child. and, again, it brought out the worst in her.
after they were set to defeat the germans, they went out to dinner. and it was there that jeff asked her to tell him about that.
we see a child (11 y.o.) shirley at a fooze ball table. she plays this kid and taunts him. he ends up wetting himself after she beats him and shoves 1 of the sticks into his balls.
she didn't just defeat him, she says, she took him to tinkle town.
'big cheddar!' exclaims jeff.
we see the same scene but from 11 y.o. jeff's p.o.v. he's the boy who wet his pants.
big cheddar was what they called shirley. jeff yells at her that she ruined his life. then he storms out while people look over at their table.
but they make their amends and team up to beat the germans.
meanwhile avid's spent nearly $300 on an exclusive 'dark knight' dvd with special commentary from christian bale.
annie accidentally steps on it and breaks it.
to cover, she pretends they were robbed. (troy knows the truth and can't believe how far she's gone.) avid puts 2 and 2 together and gets 5 - the only 1 who could have done it was ... the landlord!
avid dresses up as batman, climbs out the window and confronts the landlord.
who admits ... he is stealing women's shoes. annie sees a pair of her shoes.
so the police are called.
annie tried to tell avid the truth but he refused to listen. he listens as batman and tells her he forgives her but she shouldn't tell avid.
troy was the highlight of the scenes. saying things like annie was supposed to make them (avid and him) less crazy.
it really was a funny episode and even had animation in it which was handled very, very well.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
