Summer TV Hangout 2014: Week 12

The Wire (Season 1)

Boyz II Men
“Cleaning Up” (B+)
A good set-up episode that strives for greatness with its tragedy, but doesn’t quite get there.

Blackadder (Season 4)

House Dress
“Major Star” (A-)
The sharpest episode yet, even if the Chaplin references are a bit anachronistic. This is farce at its finest.

Flash in the can
“Private Plane” (B+)
The return of Rik Mayall still doesn’t fill me with glee like it does for some fans of the show. However, I still love the line “Why don’t I wear underwear? Because they haven’t found pants that are up for the job!”
