'Take a GOOD LOOK!' at 'Miss Guided' star Judy Greer

Don’t miss the former Kitty Sanchez and current Miss Guided star’s spot-on dramatization of Pretty in Pink‘s heated pre-prom locker encounter. It’s her No. 1 on the Take 5 list below, and it might be better than the movie version. Don’t you wish Judy Greer would float around your cube, reenacting bit parts of your work day?

After last night’s two-episode official "premiere," I’m a little more on board than Gary was about Miss Guided. I don’t think it’s too steep of a comparison to say the show reminds me of 30 Rock, Scrubs, and Arrested Development (fine, and Samantha Who?) where every line is a joke, but the actors are incredibly earnest while saying things like "I think the expression is ‘Think outside the bun.’" Any show featuring an English teacher named Ms. Germain and tongue-in-cheek product placement for Taco Bell and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon waterpark (!!!) has me hooked. I’m pretty easy that way. "Hot Sub" co-starred Jamie Lynn Spears as a more successful version of herself and Asthon Kutcher as a substitute teacher full of s— (which reminded me of a very special My So-Called Life). In "The List" (hello again, MSCL), Judy’s character accidentally offers a full-on crotch shot to the whole school via an obnoxious gossip blog called LindsayLopez.com. Topical! The series deserves a chance, so go watch the full eps on ABC.com. What else do you have to do — respond to an Evite? Just say no!

Hey was this a great "blarg" item or what?

    Judy Greer makes my life. seriously. she stole “27 dresses” from katherine heigl, she played the perfect b*tch in “13 going on 30″. she was so believable desperate and sad in the smallest part in “what women want”. I’d would rather have her career than be a huge movie star and act poorly in lead roles.

    Love Judy Greer, especially in Arrested Development, and like Miss Guided. Good call ABC running it last night before Lost.

  • Alison

    That take 5 totally made me love Judy Greer even more. Not quite Tina Fey love—but she’s getting close :)

  • Kim

    I love this show! I have been telling everyone about it. Considering these are the first couple of episodes and it is already hilarious, I have high hopes for the series. Chris Parnell is icing on the cake. I am a former teacher, I find the school staff so true and funny.

    Holy crap, I have been laughing non-stop! Loved the PIP reenactment and laughed out loud at the Miss Guided shows – especially Chris Parnell… good times.

  • Anonymous

    My top 5 – and in the same order – the only difference is that my favorite scene in PIP is at the end when they see each other at prom.

  • Garry

    I could tell by the promos alone that I was going to like this show, and I love it! Judy Greer is funny, charming, and not bad to look at! The show reminds me a little of “Malcolm In The Middle” and Malcolm’s original teacher in that series. Similar comedy style, too. I hope “Miss Guided” sticks around!

  • NineDaves

    yeah, miss guided kind of had me from the first promo. i think it would make a great bff to samantha who. and i couldn’t help but swoon at the last few minutes of the preview episode, where judy’s character overhears the spanish teacher standing up for her. whatever – i’m a softie. hope the show lasts!

  • Tipper

    I haven’t seen it, but I read the blurb and couldn’t help mentioning that my English teacher in high school was named Ms. Germain. Honest to God, and I never even made the connection!

  • Tony

    I didn’t really dig Miss Guided, and I like Judy Greer.
    I came to a harrowing realization today though. With Chris Parnell on Miss Guided, does that mean no more Dr. Spaceman?

  • Lauren

    I am loving Miss Guided. Eps 2 & 3 really stepped it up. It’s about time that Judy Greer has her own show!

  • Katie M.

    Your blarg post inspired me to take some time and watch the episodes online and I loved them!

  • Ernesto

    I have to say that I LOVE this show, it’s sooo funny and Judy Greer is brilliant and so beautiful, really enjoying the show but I do feel the need to hit Parnell every time he says something ha ha…please watch it people and enjoy!!

  • monica

    i totally agree with everyone else. it’s all very funny. especially when Tim says things wrong in Spanish. I loved it when he mistook “horse” for “heart” in spanish. Nice. Ashton’s crush was adorable and hilarious and Chris’ super gay photos were a nice touch.

  • Tim

    This is one of the best shows of the 2007/2008 season! I don’t even think 30 Rock started off this strong. (Don’t get me wrong — 30 Rock has grown to become the best comedy on network TV right now. Well, it’s in a tie with The Office but still… Anyway, run don’t walk to ABC.com and watch past episodes of Miss Guided. Especially “The List” which aired last night. It had me laughing out loud a whole bunch. Save this show, guys. The ratings were grim and I think if it doesn’t grow in numbers next week it will be gone forever. It would be a shame not to give this a second season, better promotion and a slot after Samantha Who? where it would work perfect out of.
