Better Off Ted Review: "Mess of a Salesman" Season 2, Episode 11

Against its better judgement, ABC aired its last planned episode of Better Off Ted last night in its unfortunate Tuesday lineup. Oh why couldn't you give Ted a fighting chance on Wednesdays next to your other comedies? Unfortunately, the final Ted outing, "Mess of a Salesman," was a decent one, but certainly not the series or even this season's finest effort. We hope this doesn't end up being the series finale and ABC at least gives us a better episode to go out on a bang with. To Read More Click Here If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Review: Better Off Ted - Mess of a Salesman Season 2, Episode 11

That's all, folks. This was the final scheduled episode of Better Off Ted, aka ABC's brightest, funniest and weirdest comedy in years. I'm really gonna miss this show, and I'm not looking forward to awaiting the network's final decision concerning its fate. Will BoT return to ABC? Could another network (say Comedy Central?) pick it up? I hope so, but I'm not holding my breath. Tonight's episode wasn't exactly a classic, but it offered plenty of laughs, hilarious throwaway lines and a great guest turn from Warehouse 13's Eddie McClintock. Casting McClintock as Ted's flaky brother Billy was a wonderful idea. The guy has excellent comic timing and he fit in perfectly with the rest of the cast and the crazy tone of the show. I loved how Billy brought out the primitive nut-slapping, titty-twisting version of Ted we rarely get to see. Billy's visit also prompted Phil and Lem to act reckless and order a ridiculous amount of cadavers, chomp down on "cheese apples" and wear tight leather pants.

Better Off Ted Review: "Lust in Translation" Season 2, Episode 10

While not a biting office satire and clearly lacking a Veridian commercial, this week's episode of Better Off Ted was the funniest and most quotable episode of season two. In "Lust in Translation," Veridan was attempting to partner with a German company on a new translation device, and Ted grew quite close with one of the executives, Greta (Stefanie von Pfetten) outside of the office. The hilarious twist being that in order to improve the device's voice it outputs (what could be better than a 90 foot robot?), they switch it to Phil's voice and Greta refuses to keep sleeping with Ted or working with Veridian if he won't let her use the device in bed. While not as original as other Ted plot lines, this one led to some great mistranslation lines, German jokes, and awkward moments with Phil's voice coming out of a beautiful blonde woman. We definitely felt the main story line led to some of the funniest moments of the season. To Read More Click Here . If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Review: Better Off Ted - Lust in Translation Season 2, Episode 10

Ted mixed business with pleasure again by hooking up with Greta, a sexy German exec whose broken English made her sound like a sexual deviant ("You and I do it I hope, the coming together?"). But after Greta's lunch proposal came out sounding like a much more private request ("Eat me?"), she started using Phil and Lem's translation device to communicate with Ted... in bed. Thankfully, the boys had fixed the machine's giant robot voice, but Ted was put off by its replacement, Phil's voice. The funniest thing about this gag was Linda's reaction to hearing Phil's voice talking sexy to Ted. Not only did it make her lose the "Linda Bagel" championship, but she also seemed genuinely disturbed and crushed by what she was hearing. Veronica took advantage of the situation to steal Queen Linda the Dainty Foot's crown. I love watching Veronica cozy up with the office drones to let loose every now and then. It was fun to see her ignore her work to practice her "Linda Bagel" pitch in this episode. To Read More Click here . If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Better Off Ted Review: "The Long and Winding High Road" Season 2, Episode 9

The second of two new episodes of Better Off Ted last night, "The Long and Winding High Road," was definitely stronger than the entertaining first effort. And that's not just because the second episode had an amazing Veridian commercial. That always helps in our book, though. The "High Road" was Ted and Veronica going up against their rival research lab at Veridian and both trying to take different roads. However, when Ted ends up sneaking behind Veronica's back and slipping onto the lower road, their two plans backfire against each other in typical sitcom cliche.

Better Off Ted Review: "The Impertence of Communicationizing" Season 2, Episode 8

Last night's first of two new Better Off Ted episodes returned to the show's strength: an office satire. During "The Impertence of Communicationizing," the topic of the episode was memos. Sure Office Space may have mocked TPS reports, but Ted handled memos in a much different way. Apparently, the HR department at Veridian is notorious for typos, and rather than admit it could ever be wrong, Veridian enforces the incorrect policies. During last night's episode, a memo went out that employees must NOW use offenseive language instead of NOT. The results? Hilarious as expected. We especially loved seeing Phil and Lem break down insults to a simple formula. To Read More Click Here If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Review: Better Off Ted - The Long and Winding High Road Season 2, Episode 9

Another solid episode from one of the funniest shows on TV. "The Long and Winding High Road" was a great companion piece to the brilliant 8 p.m. ep. I didn't think anything could top getting "Phil-a-busted," but I actually found myself laughing more during this episode than I did while watching "The Impertence Of Communicationizing." Again, Ted's storyline kinda went nowhere, but we still got the usual stream of non-stop jokes and clever callbacks. We learned that Ted is such a stand-up guy that he opts to take the high road in any situation, even when his office rival is trying to undermine his latest project. The rest of the crew prefers the low road, especially when it comes to going head-to-head with the company. Phil and Lem were so terrified about owning up to their little mishap that they almost manipulated a co-worker into prostituting herself. What was their excuse? The high road is too high; they might fall off. To Read More Click Here If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Review: Better Off Ted - The Impertence of Communicationizing Season 2, Episode 8

In the spirit of this episode, lemme just say that ABC is a wasteland full of baboon-butted snot wipes for not giving this show a better timeslot. OK, it felt good to get that out. Now let's get on with this ... I hate corporate memos. I hate the jargon, the suggestions, and especially the phony "Ra Ra Ra, Go Team!" messages that are usually tacked on at the end of them. But I've never received a memo advising me to insult my co-workers with abusive language. Of course, I've never worked for Veridian Dynamics, a place where sexual harassment is considered a disease and people are attacked by super lice.

Better Off Ted Review: "Change We Can't Believe In" Season 2, Episode 7

OMG. Perhaps someone's been listening to our constant complaints, but Better Off Ted brought back the Veridian commercials with last night's second episode, "Change We Can't Believe In." While not as strong as the earlier episode in the night, this second installment was still a great episode. There was no overall office theme the episode was satiring and instead focused on Ted, Veronica, and Linda attempt to change, or not change people.

Review: Better Off Ted - Change We Can't Believe In Season 2, Episode 7

. Now this was an episode I could relate to. I hate small talk. This might sound cruel, but dealing with "energy sucking time gobblers" like Ryan was one of the things I hated most about working in an office. (That and having to wear pants, of course). So I can't blame Ted for wanting to cut the guy out of his life. But Ted wasn't about to fire Ryan just for being a chatterbox. Instead, he took Veronica's advice (or Linda's advice, depending on who you ask) and decided to try and change him. And why not? Change is good. Except, of course, when it ruins a guy's life and causes an odd chain of events culminating in a stranger giving birth in the backseat of your car.
