So I finished watching S2 of Andy Richter Controls the Universe a week or so ago. I can't say I am sorry it was as short as it was. It had quite a few funny moments, but there was a lot of cringeworthy stuff, too. (Like omg please if your cast is entirely white please please don't have an episode all about racism and affirmative action. That episode was so horrible, I have no words and can only flail in response.) And the ghost of the company founder, wtf? I really don't know what the point of him was. Since he exists entirely in Andy's head, he basically functions as a way for Andy to say sexist and racist things but attribute them to someone else. So we can all laugh at the evil old man...except he's in Andy's head! So those are Andy's thoughts!
I think overall I liked the show best as a sort of pre-Better Off Ted. Keith is clearly a Ted template, Jessica is Veronica but less Veronica-ish, etc. And of course I loved Byron. Better Off Ted was just so, so, so much better, though. So much less faily, but also just better overall.
And then there was Leverage!
Eeeeeeeeeee! Parker/Hardison!!!! I don't even remember what else happened in that episode. I was just all asquee over the two of them. And then in the next episode there was Jo! Yay.
