Show of hands: Who here has ever read a Grumpy Cat meme in Aubrey Plaza’s voice? Just me? Fine, make me feel weird.
Plaza’s “Parks and Recreation” character April Ludgate is the human incarnation of grumpy. She revels in schadenfreude and tends to take every situation and make it dark and depressing. That type of thing gets her up in the morning. The woman is hilariously morose and has one of the best deadpan monotones I’ve ever seen.
Korra is back! Or should I say, the old badass Korra has returned. It took nine episodes and more spiritual journeys than it probably should have, but Korra finally seems to be over the mental block that was holding her back from being the avatar. With Kuvira gaining power and harvesting spirit vines to create her ultimate weapon, the world has never needed Korra to be at full strength more.
This week’s episode of “The Flash” was all about time, which I suppose one could contribute to the appearance of the Clock King (who was on “Arrow” a while back as well, for anyone who remembers). References were made to the past and to the future, and our characters often found themselves running out of time or caught in situations with terrible timing.
In its short run so far, I’ve learned that “Mulaney” is at its best when everyone is working together. That is, when there’s one main plotline rather than two or three branches. This episode is a great example of that.
