This Week in Milford

Nice Bedhead, Gil


For a second there I thought a bored, jealous Mimi had bedded Jarrod Hale but the lack of freckles tipped me off that it’s ol’ Gildo she’s rousing out of the sack. Hasn’t Mimi already hipped to the fact that the Welcome Back, Carter crew was editing words out of context? Guess it didn’t matter so much when Gil appeared to be ripping his team as it does when he appears to be chatting up his ex. Nothing to see here, really…

… or is there? Let’s revisit yesterday’s strip:


Note Gil has a collared shirt on under his sweatshirt when he told Holly “No!” but on screen the undershirt has mysteriously disappeared. Now where did Gil leave it?

Coming Monday: Mimi pays a surprise visit to the WDIG studios wearing nothing a but an overcoat and brandishing a bottle of Popov Vodka.



  1. At first I thought Mimi was awfully cruel to wait until Gil was in a deep sleep and THEN confront him with the … uh… tape? (VOD has yet to arrive in Milford, I suppose.) But then I looked at Gil’s horrifically rough face. Obviously he went on an epic bender, crawled into bed and went immediately into a coma. This was Mimi’s first chance to rub his nose in it.

  2. The neckline of the sweater looks different too. I never thought playing Find Six Differences would enhance my enjoyment of Gil Thorp but there you have it. For what that’s worth, it seems the neckline of Gil’s t-shirt changes while he’s still in bed.

    I really like the look on Gil’s face in panel two. I think that is about how I would look if my wife woke me from a drunken slumber to watch some reality show within which the tragic spiral of my life had somehow entwined me. Really, the look on Gil’s face in panels one and two is wonderfully rendered. No particular thoughts about Gil’s mug in panel three, but I would caution anyone against trying to recreate Mimi’s pose. I don’t think my neck will ever work the same again. I’d tag that one as ‘anatomically implausible’.

  3. Even if we didn’t have these infidelity innuendos interspersing literally incredible events, we’d still have panel #1. Which is pure marital monogamy gold: “Wake up while I hit rewind!”

    Anyone with me?

  4. […] this?! Chicanery in the reality television realm? As teenchy already pointed out in the previous post, the producers of Welcome Back Carter have been so obvious with their creative editing that a […]
