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.
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.
Nothing starts your morning on a better note than an impromptu “Friends” reunion!
Jennifer Aniston appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s show last night to promote her new movie “Life of Crime.” As their conversation went on, Kimmel revealed he was a huge “Friends” fan in the 90s (who wasn’t?). He then asked Aniston if she would read some “Friends” fan fiction he wrote where he was Ross, the world’s greatest love-maker. Things got extra creepy when they moved onto what appeared to be an exact replica of the kitchen in Rachel and Monica’s apartment.
