I could do with less “Britta/Jeff/Annie” love triangle. Much, much less. Especially because the age difference between Annie and Jeff — it’s got to be almost 20 years — is a BIG HUGE PROBLEM for me, and it took until the first episode of season 2 for the show to acknowledge the issue. I mean, I’m really glad they finally did have Jeff say something, and how they presented it as a line that even Jeff Winger isn’t willing to cross, but I did a lot of squirming meanwhile. Fortunately the “all the girls want Jeff” aspect seems somewhat de-emphasized in the second season so far. I’m not sure I trust that to last, though. Either way, Britta and Annie are both way too good for Jeff. (Hmm, Britta/Annie? Now that I could be on board with.)
While I’m complaining about things: Pierce. How many seasons does Chevy Chase last? I know he leaves eventually, but it can’t be soon enough. At least in his case the show does know that he’s terrible — if it didn’t, I probably wouldn’t have lasted this long. Señor Chang doesn’t do much for me either, and I am also really over the portrayal of the dean. It might be different if there were other gay characters, but he’s the only one, not to mention that both Pierce and Shirley are quite homophobic. And again, the show makes the point that these views are wrong, but it still gets tiring.
