Pet Peeve
5 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's one of the more psychologically involved ones. It's super fast paced. But it uses a flawed joke formula. While exemplifying a sheltered experience using mispronounced words is a tried & true comedic vehicle, mispronouncing words you hear is only funny with a foreign accent. If Jenna had been reading a note with the word suburb and pronounced it "soobarb" it would have been funny. And maybe that would have been funny if Paul spoke like that but he doesn't. So it wasn't. I hate that I notice logic errors like that coz it diminishes my escapism but I do. According to rules I need one more sentence.
