House of Lies Grammar Mistake
January 28, 2013 § 4 Comments
With all of the crazy weather keeping me home on the nights that I’m supposed to leave so that Daddy can have Daughter Duty, I’ve been missing my Sunday night programming, usually watched under the heated blanket over in mom’s cozy, warm bed.
The new episodes of my favorites cable shows have begun. But with children in close proximity, my viewing pleasure has been only been possible in ten minute increments (thank you DVR) when my little ladies are out of earshot.
And then yesterday, like a gift from the Barbie Gods, the girls were playing in another room long enough for me to catch back to back episodes of House of Lies.
Don Cheadle is still king.
Kristen Bell packs a powerful emotional punch with her sweet face and whip-sharp delivery.
The writing might be the smartest on television; keeps me on my toes.
All signs point to a stellar second season (Jeannie on the turntable locking eyes with Marty!) and then …
When the twenty-second clip for next week’s episode aired, I sad-sighed over the incorrect use of my biggest grammar pet peeve; the overly mis-used, yet easily corrected with a second of forethought, me versus I dilemma.
Wrong! “There’s nothing going on between Marty and I!”
Right! There’s nothing going on between Marty and me!”
One day the world will get it right, and I won’t feel badly (about feeling badly) that it’s my duty to highlight the error.
Do you have a grammar pet peeve? Why is this one so hard for the world to learn?
