Hi everyone, I start this thread as we walk through the episode Life of the Party.. we’ve walked through all the Long haired episodes of season 2, because instead of recapping them in airing order, I put ARSituation and CWars ahead of ALSALScandal.. it was obvious they had to be before her haircut! The rest of the order.. is not so obvious!!! so I’d love some help if you find this kind of thing fun!
I have a few ideas.. and we’ve already had a discussion about the order of Car Wars and Brunettes are in.. You’ll see that I have posted the production order of Season Two previously, and in the production order, CWars way much much earlier in the season! I think this was discussed as we recapped CWars.. stop by that episode if you want to see what we discussed.. but I basically wondered if it should go before Brunettes and Lee and Amanda’s big shift.. and others ( feel free to post here) thought it fit better after. What do you think?
Then, there was some discussion about where ARSituation fits, before or after Spiderweb? What do you think?
Now we are into the short haired episodes.. I’m liking having ALSALScandal followed directly by LOTP.. but.. Morley has posted in the comments the following and made me wonder if this is in fact a good order:
Morley wrote: I was wondering about the episode order and I went and looked at each short hair episode and the length of her hair. I sort of thought her hair was softer and looser in this episode and I was actually wondering if it came a little later. It looked to me like her hair in DOA was most similar to her hair in ALSALS and I actually thought Dead Pigeon looked like it would have been before this one too.
So it would be ALSALS, DOA, Dead Pigeon and then LOTP (according to how her hair looked like it was growing, to me). But it is hard to tell and I want to take the time to watch them in that order and see what happens.
The only thing that would make more sense to me in this order is Francine’s comment about Lee dating Randy in DOA. If anyone else wants to, I would love to hear what you think about Amanda’s hair length and episode order [submitted 9 Aug on 2/ LOTParty thread]
In reply to Morley, I (iwsod) responded:
I have written in my notes that there is Spiderweb, ARSituation, then ALSALS, then LOTP..
After LOTP we see that Billy has a new chair in his office – at least these are the notes I’ve made.. so from this I have deduced that ALSALS and LOTP come first in the short haired eps.. followed by the others.. I haven’t had time to think about these eps beyond LOTP – so your ideas about Amanda’s hair are really interesting! Maybe DOA directly follows LOTP? could it?..
[there was something I just picked up in the 3rd post of LOTP that makes me think ALSALS and LOTP were filmed together.. ] you know.. they tended to film two episodes at a time.. and cross over a little..
I’d be interested to see if someone can check if we see Billy’s office (and his chair) in the eps from now on?.. if someone can confirm if my notes are correct?.. or if there is an ep where we don’t see his office? (I think there was a time where I only saw it through the bullpen window but I can’t remember sorry)
Well, if anyone would like to take this and run with it that would be fab! I don’t have a set order for the end of season 2 and am completely open to ideas (well I always am- but this time I’m also devoid of my own ideas! tee hee)
I just had another look at DOA to try and see if I get a glimpse of Billy’s chair.. you can just make it out behind Lee as he takes his phone call from Hans Redzick in Billy’s office (while Amanda digs into Lee’s sandwich!).. here:
The chair’s not easy to see, and on the right of the screen..
To me it looks like ALSALScandal and LOTParty are the two short haired episodes we see where Billy doesn’t have his new chair yet.. If someone doesn’t beat me to it, [btw, I’d be happy if you did – I’m really busy! ] I’ll check out the other short haired eps to confirm the new chair is in them..
Soooo here is one place to collect all our thoughts on the season 2 order – so a list get put together!
Feel free to discuss them here.. of course, other than looking for Billy’s chair I haven’t watched ahead – so I’m not going to be much good on what else is in later episodes.. so I expect to add to this thread as we walk through to the end of season 2.. but if you think of anything feel free to list it here and I’ll keep it in mind! Thanks for raising this again Morley!
Byee all!!! 🙂
