Today as I was headed to the Jim Henson exhibit at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens (which is incredible, by the way, so definitely check it out), I stopped by a Panera Bread. A guy was leaving at the same time, exiting into the 80 degree weather. “Woah, who turned on the heat?” he exclaimed to his companion, who smiled politely. They chatted back and forth for a moment, and then he said again, a little louder, “Who turned on the heat?” and then laughed at his own joke for about 10 seconds.
Anyway, I wish I had the confidence of that guy, so here goes: some stuff I wrote and did this week.

Man, I love this very silly show, and the first two eps finally deliver on something fans have been asking about since the pilot. One detail I left out?
