That's easy. It's a meaningless award voted on by a truly random group of foreign correspondents in Los Angeles. Think of them as a collection of “Access Hollywood” type knuckleheads from Belize, Serbia, and Dubai. They are impressed by style and hype, not substance More importantly, the members of the HFPA are notoriously susceptible to bribery in the form of being granted interviews with stars, sent on press junkets, and lots of gifts from agents such. Far more so than the membership of the Motion Picture or Television Academys.
The only reason people care about the Golden Globes is that the HFPA has carefully marketed it as a bellwether for the Oscars. It's basically the Iowa Caucus of the Oscars race.
Seems like every year the HFPA baffoons vote in a show based only on 6 episodes. Last year, it was "The Walking Dead," (6 episode Season 1 that wasn't even great, but had killer ratings for cable). This year, sadly, it's the "New Girl."
Of course P&R is better than New Girl. Hell, "Happy Endings," (which New Girl ripped off in terms of general concept), is better than New Girl, as well as many other comedies.
ok episode. couple of good scenes but certainly not their best work
I thought it was hilarious. Andy and April have become my favorite characters (ok, maybe after Ron Swanson), and the more they are featured, the better. Andy's visits to the various doctors for all his maladies had me literally laughing out loud. Running headfirst into the ambulance and then calling for an ambulance (but not the one he ran into), classic Andy.
OK. Ron's scenes did lt for me last night. I was dying. The episode was really funny, but my 2 favorites were from Ron. The first one was the "this is my favorite restaurant in Pawnee" with the menu having 2 items; his face after was gold and had me rolling. And then the second part was the end, with his perfect game. That one was great. "I was never in here." Wonderful.
I thought last night's episode was a bit weaker than recent weeks but there were still a few good laughs. I got a kick out of hearing all the titles of the murals in city hall documenting Pawnee's past atrocities..."Eating the Reverend", yikes! I also laughed at Chris considering Jerry as a potential partner since he technically contributed 50% of Millicent's DNA.
The scavenger hunt was amusing and I didn't expect Ron to be so into it. The guy at the snowglobe museum looked familiar. Wasn't he in Freaks & Geeks and some of Apatow's other productions?
Hope they explore the Ann/Tom angle for a while...see some comedic potential there
