I don’t like to mix politics and TV talk, generally, and that is why I maintain a separate blog for all of my non-television related blogging. That said, I’m going to just glance a little bit on politics for a brief moment just to explain why I haven’t been a big fan of Ed Helms for the most part. It’s probably unfair. I don’t like The Daily show, and I hate smug liberals. Since Ed came from The Daily Show, I’ve assumed he was probably a smug liberal and disliked him accordingly. See? Rational. Also a side not to any liberal readers: I said “smug” liberals, so I probably don’t mean you, okay? Okay.
But that’s not important, really. What’s important is that I’ve finally grown to appreciate Andy Bernard in the latest season of The Office, and thanks to tonight’s episode in particular, I’m even borderline loving him. It was probably inevitable because the show has been almost unbearably mean to him all season, and I can’t help but feel for an underdog, even an underdog who’s kind of a doofus.
