Ok, with that out of my system, it's time to catch up with our ever-deepening cast of characters.
Saracen takes so much grief from people, it's fun to hear him dish it out occasionally, as when he gets on the love-struck Landry about his "study date" with Tyra: "It's gonna be a huge night. I mean, you're gonna square a lot of numbers, maybe figure out a quadratic equation or something . . . it's adorable, what you're doing."

When it comes to establishing real staying power in the flavor-of-the month pop scene, the second album is critical. But the Arctic Monkeys bring the heat again on Favourite Worst Nightmare, which comes as close to matching their first album as one could have reasonably expected. On "Fluorescent Adolescent", frontman Alex Turner sings about a girl gone unwild. Luckily, though, these Monkeys won't be tamed anytime soon.
Fountains of Wayne continue to display a penchant for the witty, detail storytelling. Their latest album Traffic and Weather includes a suspicious boyfriend who spies his girl "with some guy wearing light-blue Dockers pants" on "This Better Be Good." To go along with their knack for narrative, Fountains of Wayne have a gift for breezy melodies and breezier harmonies that make their tunes go by like smooth cruising down the highway.

Sprinkled with flashbacks and tie-ins to earlier episodes (including Detective Murphy's brush with black magic in The Boone Identity), the story ups the ante for Harry as Murphy reopens the five-year-old investigation into the death of Justin Morningway, suspecting that Harry may not be as innocent as he always claimed. Tensions rise as their friendship is put to under severe pressure, and even Bob's loyalty is sorely tested as a surprising Big Bad (who, sadly, doesn't appear to be sticking around) offers him the chance to regain his corporeal form.

J.K. Simmons was a lot of fun as Homer's photo editor. Sure, he was basically doing his J. Jonah Jameson voice from the Spider-Man movies, but I loved his take on that character so I can't really complain. Jon Lovitz made yet another appearance on the show, this time as Enrico Irritazio, the paparazzo hired by the celebrities to take embarrassing photos of Homer. I love Lovitz on The Simpsons, but unfortunately, he wasn't given too much to work with this time out. Betty White simply stole the show. As Homer was in the middle of bitterly complaining about how snooty celebrities react to his photo snapping, Betty White arrived as the sweetest, kindest celebrity of all: "Thanks for taking my picture. If you want me to sign it, here's a stamped, self-addressed envelope."
