January 22, 2007: The Chocolate Gorilla Season 1, Episode 14

Boy, Monday nights really twist me in all directions now. I get to laugh my head off with The Class and follow it up with brutal violence on 24. But this is why I love Monday night! Alas, I'm only here to chat about The Class.... So let's talk. I started telling you two weeks ago about my growing disinterest for anything involving Ethan/Kat/Palmer, and that trend continued this episode. I really am keeping an open mind because I love the show so much, but these three were a real snoozefest. Not only that, but it was really confusing before the first break. The whole first scene was off-kilter for me because they just sort of jumped into the phone conversation with no explanation. Without having a TiVo to check, I could have sworn that Ethan told Kyle they were pathetic for channel-surfing on a Friday night. Then all of a sudden they are listening in on Kat and the violinist having a conversation with no reasoning behind the how or why of the whole thing. Of course, I know they explained it after the break (frankly, I thought the "I forgot to hang up" problem stopped with Zach talking to A.C. Slater about Kelly behind her back), but it was still a muddled mess to me even after that. Kudos to you if you found the laughter in it that the writers obviously expected. I certainly didn't. And who didn't see it coming that Ethan and Palmer would have sex at the museum? Anyway, despite all that, it's the other half I loved again. This is really "The Richie Velch Show" now, and with good reason. Jesse Tyler Ferguson gets better every week in the role. He's the only character that has really grown since the beginning. From his shyness about sipping on the Chocolate Gorilla (for the lady, of course) to him asking Duncan, "Did you tap that?", Richie gets laughs almost every time he opens his mouth. And how funny was the stress he was under to keep the secret/tell the secret of Nicole and Duncan? Get that man a dry shirt and a Chocolate Gorilla for all his work. That's enough detective work for him for the rest of the season. Finally, Duncan and Nicole put it out in the open how they feel about each other. That's cool, except you know now that Richie is going to somehow blab it to Yonk, and that's going to screw everything up. Well, that is if Yonk is even in the show anymore. Who knows, since we haven't seen him in weeks. From reading your comments I know there are plenty of fans of Ethan, Kat and Palmer out there, and if you are, please feel free to try to enlighten me as to why I should be enjoying them. Maybe one of you can reverse my opinion, because I certainly would like to enjoy 30 minutes, rather than 15. Until next week, friends. show less
