Lina and the terrible, horrible, awful, no-good Moroccan chicken dinner party: I didn't get it. If you're a vegetarian, aren't you usually a vegetarian on principle, to protest the slaughter of animals? I know some people are on it for health reasons, but she strikes me as the fuzzy-hearted type, so I don't know why she couldn't just whip up an awesome vegetarian meal. I'm not saying tofu or imitation meat, even, just...maybe a good pasta dish? What's wrong with that? I also don't know why Richie couldn't have at least hinted that the chicken didn't taste good. He could have blamed the animal itself rather than her cooking; that wouldn't have faulted her at all. Of course, I forget his inherent spinelessness. Took him all episode to finally own up. This eventually led to their first fight, which I couldn't believe I was seeing. By the time I realized they were actually yelling,in true puppy love fashion Lina was already over it, cooing over their "relationship milestone."
Lastly, Duncan/Yonk/Nicole triangle didn't really go anywhere for me this week, but I feel a need to mention that Duncan's hair keeps getting longer. And I like it that way. I'm delightfully shallow.
Two and a Half Men: No thoughts, just one Q on the guest star - what's the deal with describing Brooke Shields as beautiful and gorgeous and perfect? She looks like a man. Prominent brow, boxy head, square jaw? All very mannish. At the very least, robotic. I would never consider her a specimen of beauty. Maybe she was a long time ago when she was quite young, but nowhere in recent history.
