->Perhaps Carter felt that Reyes was coming across as a little too spaced out but the ''"I feel energies"'' angle was dropped when she became a regular. A shame, because I rather like the idea of somebody a little kooky working in the X-Files office. I don’t really buy the criticism that Reyes is a forced eccentric, a character constructed out of idiosyncratic ticks and quirks…at least until she started to imitate whale song. At that point I thought she might have gone insane.

->Clark and Lois are moving into their new apartment, and we get a limp attempt at banter when Clark reveals that Lois has a pillow she made out of a {{Music/Whitesnake}} t-shirt. Lois likes something weird! That’s ''kind'' of like characterization, right? ...Instead of Lois doing a Tawny Kitaen impression, though, we just get Clark saying "I can decipher your scrawl," which I think is meant to be cutesy and back and forth, but because of Tom Welling’s [[KubrickStare deadpan sociopath delivery]], it seems genuinely insulting. Maybe do a second take sometimes, guys.

->We should really be shaming the men who put the MPDG on a pedestal to avoid having to really love her for who she is.

->The MPDG is Natalie Portman in ''Garden State'', or Zooey Deschanel in, well, anything; the flighty, carefree, and cutely gorgeous (without being sexually threatening), saucer-eyed human-pixie that breezes into your stuffy, empty life on glittered rainbow winds, and gets you to lighten up and love the world – and yourself – by showing it to you through child-like, wonder-coloured glasses. ''“Let's dance in a thunderstorm! Let's race unicycles! I'm sorry, did my throwing jelly beans at your window wake you up?! C'mon, how about we go and play in a children's ball pit in slow-mo while bland American indie rock crescendos in the background?”'' This insulting stock cliché is probably the sprinkle-covered semen that birthed the trend of cynically contrived spontaneous joy, with 'impromptu' dances in the street, flash-mob pillow fights, Improv Everywhere videos where people ride the subway in their underwear, or fortunately-photogenic hipsters with signs offering free hugs. I'm all for art and freedom of expression, but this is paint-by-numbers eccentricity, a hollow embracing of nothing that's far more genuinely cynical than someone pushing their way through a mass lightsaber duel where a hundred people are trying very, very hard to show everyone just how carefree they are. The MPDB is a corrupted pantomime dame of the true wizard of ad-libbed wonder, Creator/BillMurray, who achieves everything these hoary, cheap archetypes are aiming for -- in pure Venkman style -- [[PretenderDiss without even trying.]]

->Enter Creator/NataliePortman.\\\
Natalie Portman's character claims to be a human being but is actually a genie that exists entirely within the mind of Zach Braff's dreaming penis...She tap-dances. She lies, puckishly. She emcees somber hamster funerals. She introduces strangers to her blankie. She figure-skates in a crushed-velvet alligator costume. She wears an epilepsy helmet just long enough to facilitate a wise and bittersweet moment and then never wears it again. She walks over to her record player and opens the lid but doesn't put a record on just to make VERY SURE you know she has one.

->As always, the Emmys were a snore-filled snooze fest last night, but luckily there was a brightly shining stoned star who guided us safely through that never-ending mess. The second [[Creator/SarahSilverman Sarah "Human Cloud of Weed Smoke" Silverman]] arrived, I knew everything was going to be alright. First she sashayed onto the red carpet looking like a sedated avocado with her tits out, which is always the look...Thankfully, that wasn’t the last we saw of a high-as-hell Sarah Silverman. She came back a little while later when she won the award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special, which she accepted by [[DoesNotLikeShoes running to the stage barefoot]], leaping up the stairs like Stoned Jesus, rambling about space and molecules, and thanking her boyfriend 'Mr. Fancy Pants Sheen' (Creator/MichaelSheen). Afterwards in the press room, some adorable innocent naive cherub asked Sarah if had smoked weed before the show (aw, stay sweet, you). She answered that she likes to 'have a puff as a treat, at appropriate times' (which I guess is the '[[MemeticMutation Bitch I might be]]' for more formal occasions), but really, did she even need to answer? Bitch was barefoot! That’s all the answer you need.

->Oh, all right, let's talk about Jo Grant -- the one thing in ''Series/DoctorWho'' more glam than [[Creator/JonPertwee Pertwee]], more glam than [[Recap/DoctorWhoS8E3TheClawsOfAxos Axos]], more glam, perhaps, than glam rock. The thing about Jo Grant is that in the course of trying to create [[DamselInDistress a dumb broad to get captured]], Terrance Dicks inadvertently created one of the great feminist icons of ''Doctor Who''... But this is no [[StrawFeminist panicked ball of castration anxiety cursing the vagina dentata]]. This is an anthem of self-consumption, a man happy to have his spine put out of place by this girl who's total blam-blam... Loved too much to ever be hurt, knowing she can get away with anything, well aware of our gaze, Jo smiles and goes about her business. The Doctor grasps her hand, stares adoringly at his companion, and they run off from whatever monster is chasing them this week, she having the time of her life, he deludedly thinking he's actually in charge here and that he exists for something other than her pleasure.
