This Week in Milford

Boo Who?

Filed under: Milford Idiots, What the hell is going on here? — timbuys @ 7:10 am


We’ve finally gotten to the last real victim in this whole arc: Ken’s sense of maternal devotion.

I’m going to take a cue from Two-Tone McSoulPatch there and quietly nod off while the last surviving sympathetic character acts like a jerk.



  1. Two-Tone McSoulPatch rocking the cut-off t-shirt… Is this baseball practice or the grandstands of a sprint car race in western Ohio?

  2. I’ll give these miscreants credit: They know the difference between jail and prison.

  3. O, my prophetic soul– I knew this would turn to Bader right away. Feel like Cassandra, and not in a good way– I also said we would be back to the boys from here on in. Not finding that Ken is wearing his captaincy real well today. Still having a hard time with Whigrub for killing Boo. What’s next, Kenzie or Liesl Ishii gets hit by a bus?

  4. I think Ken is doing just fine. All he sees is that Bader isn’t there. A teamate who’s been a tool since day one.

  5. I wouldn’t bash Ken for lashing out. He was the one that was most directly insulted by Barry’s nonsense. But nobody in Barry’s shoes would really want to be there on a day like this. An adult might try and make this point, but who knows if teenagers have enough empathy to understand. Is Gil still around or has he slipped away to go make sad faces somewhere else?

  6. That Barry. After catching the clue that his classmates don’t want him around, how dare he not stick around to catch more grief?

  7. I think my colleagues are probably right about Captain Ken. He’s 17 too, and should be expected to vent about Barry. But he’s going to have to pull them together when Bader returns, too. Unless of course Whigrub throws the whole story away by making this about reintegrating Bader, who was never a team guy anyway and which is what made him such an asshole in the first place. I say shelve him until next season, when he can be the next tool of the month (following the boy adman, boy attorney, boy coach, etc.) My judgment is probably off from being pissed about Boo’s death and the disappearance of all female characters.

  8. If the rest of the spring storyline consists of nothing but boys whining about penny-ante problems, then this may be the worst seasonal plot in the history of Gil Thorp. And that’s saying something.

  9. Mr Walters has set the price.
