The "Youthful" & the Hilarious
Isn't it great how well is show is appealing to the youth market? It's just so young and hip and fresh, with all these super-cool folks in their early twenties runnin' around like the youngfolk do bein' all down and with-it!
I mean look at Liam and Steffy, who are pretty damn cutting edge as far as the youngsters go. They're constantly playing hooky from work! They ride a motorcycle! They dance about in sprinklers!
And you know what's the most "now" and trendy about them?
They love Bob Hope!
They adore Frank Sinatra!
His favorite movie is To Kill A Mockingbird!
Her favorite movie is Roman Holiday!
They high-five over puns, y'all! THEY HIGH-FIVE OVER PUNS.
You just don't get much more current than that. Boy, this show is really onto something. Not only do they just get today's youth, they're now establishing themselves as trendsetting tastemakers! (You know, for fifty years ago.) (Author's disclaimer: I am too old to be cool and even when I wasn't too old, I was never cool. I can't pretend to know what's hot with those crazy American kids these days [can't they get off my lawn, though??], but I do occasionally know what's not. e.g., Bob Hope.)
Honestly, though, I'd be remiss not to mention the most wonderful moment of yesterday's episode. This, of course, was Donna finding Liam and Steffy getting it on in the cabin and, well...
There was a little "What is this? What am I seeing? What is the meaning of this?" in her facial expression, which was a delight.
And then it just kind of... kept going.
Dear lord! The horror! The horror!
I cannot have been the only one cracking up at this, right? And didn't it feel like she just stood at that window and watched for an eternity?
Also, WHO CARES? What does this change? We already know Liam runs to Steffy every time Hope rejects him, which she just did earlier in the same show-day. Isn't that the reason Hope should tell him to get lost? Don't get me wrong, I want Bill to be exposed so badly. For real, y'all. But he's not the reason Hope and Liam aren't together. Liam being a waffling douchenozzle is the reason for it, as well as for my rapidly declining intellect and grasp on sanity.
