At last(!), my thoughts on this past week's TV. XD

How I Met Your Mother, 5x02: Double Date

LMAO @ Marshall's fantasies. LMAO @ the doppelgängers. Meh at everything else?

House, 6x03: Epic Fail

The video game sequences (and the patient himself) were pretty annoying, but the rest of the episode was pretty much made of win.

I think it's great they've kept House's shrink around. I fully expected him to be a one-time throwaway character, so it was a nice surprise. I like him, too.

The title of the episode obviously referred to Foreman, who wasn't much successful at handling House's old job. Firing his girlfriend, for reals? Not on.

Anyway, most of that is trivial at the end of the day because House and Wilson are roomies again, and all is right with the world. :P And LOL at House getting a dog to pee in Wilson's toilet. And Wilson breaking said toilet. Haaahahaha. <3

Melrose Place, 1x04: Vine

Finally! The pace picks up at last. I was growing a little tired of SydneySydneySydney, omg flashback you guise, SydneySydneySydney, rinse and repeat.

Jane returns this week after a personality transplant (maybe the Andrews girls got them buy one, get one free), but hey, as long as the plot gets moving, whatever. I hope she and Michael meet again at some point, heh.

In other news, David is still a moron, Ella is still the most entertaining thing about this show, and Jonah is becoming more and more tolerable. Violet is still crazy, which is good for the lulz, Loren's storyline was predictable, and I still want Riley to drive off a cliff somewhere.

... And I still ended up liking this episode best of them all so far, LOL.

The Good Wife, 1x02: Stripped

Another great episode! I didn't mention it last week, but love Kalinda, she's awesome. :D

Poor Florrick kids, though. I don't want to believe Peter is completely innocent, though. Of course his children would hope against all odds that he was framed, and Zach kind of broke my heart looking for clues on the pictures.

On the other hand, the ~recording Alicia was listening to at the end could very well have been spliced together, as Peter's lines alone wouldn't necessarily imply a sexual encounter if taken out of context. Ugh.

I love Will (Josh Charles ♥) but surprisingly, I do not particularly ship him with Alicia. I feel that would totally cheapen her character/the show. But Will is fantastic and I'm a big fan of their friendship.

Still don't know what's up with Cary. You'd think he'd have more prominent a part, what with Matt Czuchry being credited second. Maybe later?

Hee. I has a new ~courtroom drama~ ^^

Glee, 1x05: The Rhodes Not Taken

Oh man, how awesome was Kristin Chenoweth? April was RIDICULOUS, lmao.

I loved Finn knowingly manipulating Rachel. After he first suggested they rehearse together, he had this look on his face like "oh shit, I'm an asshole." And then he kind of got caught up in the whole thing, lololol.

I also LOVED Emma being the voice of reason to Will. I find it so cool that we're shown everyone's biggest flaws right away, Will's being a predisposition for self-centeredness. Not that his little crush, or the remnants thereof, weren't cute as hell, but yeah, April was a tad too... extravagant. XD

And! Quinn and Finn's secret is out, oooooh! Poor Rachel, heh. I don't care, I still love Puck.

(And in case people missed it, a couple days ago, Mark Salling tweeted the link to a Puck/Kurt fanvid at Chris Colfer, with the words "they're onto us." LMAO.)

Episode needed more Sue, but I was singing "Somebody To Love" and "Alone" all day yesterday, so I can't even pretend like I didn't enjoy every second of it. XD

Bones, 5x03: The Plain in the Prodigy

The case was so sad, but it's also nice that we were allowed to sympathize with the victim's family.

"I like it. It's Boothy." <3

LMAO with Clark and clueless Brennan, Clark and aggressive Angela... Oh, Clark. See, I can never pick a favorite intern. I adore Wendell and Clark and Fisher, and even Vincent Nigel-Murray.

Michelle looks EERILY like Cam now, omfg. This would be amazing if the characters were supposed to be related. XD Anyhow, ~Uncle Booth~ was A+, haha.

Also, Sweets playing the theme to Titanic? lmfao, I love him. Way to pwn Hodgins, too. Lulz.

I really enjoyed this episode a lot, even if the last part felt a little bit like they had all this stuff to cram into 3 minutes there at the end. The Booth voiceover kind of threw me, lol.

FlashForward, 1x02: White To Play

(I've seen the premise of this described as "Shakespeare & Sulu Solve Mysteries" and it will not. leave. my. brain. LMFAO!)

I was possibly more impressed with this than I was with the pilot. And I really liked the pilot.

The whole doll warehouse thing was creepy as fuck. o_O I like it. Sucks about that no-vision dead agent, though.

I now officially love Demetri, by the by. FML. Hahaha, naturally I would like to believe he's going to live despite his lack of flashforward, but I'm pretty sure the writers are gonna pull a double-surprise on this one, i.e. HAY GUYS LOOK HE LIVES and then, bam! Bussed, or something. LOL. And it's surely to their credit, I mean it would probably feel like a cop out if he was saved last minute. And I know what to expect! It's not like the Star Trek XII shoot will wait, heh. XD

I also quite like Mark and Olivia's relationship. They're not on the brink of divorce yet, but Mark's fixation on his vision just might be what gets them there. Sad and fascinating, like a trainwreck.

And the children. They intrigue me.

Also, Bryce is still all sorts of adorable. *adds Knighton to list of 'Zacharys of Interest'*

LMAO @ Wedeck's blackout true story. LMAO FOREVER. I love that guy.

I love getting all these different perspectives, people who want the visions to come true, people who don't, people who believe it's all for a reason, etc. It's such a trip. Demetri and Janis sharing their visions on the Mosaic didn't even feel like a shameless plug for the website!

Can't wait for next week.

Supernatural, 5x04: The End


I really don't know what else to say, lol.

I think Jensen Ackles did an amazing job at portraying his usual character and the very same guy five apocalyptic years down the road. He kind of blew me away, you guise.

(I only wish that in Dean's last scene with Zachariah, his tears hadn't already dried. Minor nitpick.)

Castiel was beyond precious on his random roadside ("the voice says I'm almost out of minutes" AND THE WAITING, lmao), future!Cas was simultaneously hilarious and crushing, and future!Dean was... idek. A righteous and cold bastard but... we know exactly how he got there. ;_;

I should imagine the boys being back together won't stop chaos unraveling everywhere; but I'm still glad Dean called Sam.

I love this show so much I don't even have words to say it.

Fringe, 2x03: Fracture

Needs more fake!Charlie and Nina Sharp.

To be honest, all of this Olivia/bowling alley guy thing is kinda boring to me. I'm glad she's starting to remember stuff, but I'm finding the ~therapy part of it a bit annoying.

It was good seeing Peter back in Iraq, with Olivia, on a case.

My favorite part remains Walter, he's the greatest. :D

The Office, 6x03: The Promotion

lol, I get people getting "ick-nast!"-type reactions to Jim turning more and more into Michael, I really do, but I've seen it coming for a while and, not gonna lie, I'm loving it. I think it's more honest of the writers to go there, than try to come up with new ways for Jim to be unbelievably fantastic. (And I mean that 'unbelievably' quite literally.)

"OH LOOK! MRS. PAM HALPERT!" <3 That was my favorite bit, Pam's excitement was so adorable. :D

I also loved Jim bluntly speaking his mind to Michael, and then gaining a new appreciation for what he does. And Michael getting him a mug was so in-character and sweet. Aw.

And now, off I go in search of good quality Supernatural screencaps and easy Photoshop tutorials. Oh dear.

Shakespeare & Sulu Solve Mysteries

Thanks for putting that in my head. :D

Yay, someone else enjoyed The Office this week! \o/ I've seen so many people saying it wasn't funny enough and have issues with what they're doing with Jim, but I like it. I've never been a huge fan of Jim because it used to feel like the writers wanted us to omglove him, even though he tended to be a bit of a bully, and was more than a little full of himself. Now they're showing that he has flaws, and I love it! Also, I think it's nice to see that although Michael is undoubtedly an awful boss, the people in the office are actually really difficult to deal with, and quite horrible themselves, sometimes.

... Maybe I'm thinking a little too deeply about a half hour comedy.

I feel the exact same way about Jim. I mean, generally I think he's an okay guy despite his most obnoxious traits, but I am relieved the show is finally taking away his shiny pedestal. About time! lol.

Glee - Cheno was awesome and "Alone"/"Somebody to Love" are amaaaaazingggg. That being sad, I am not a fan of Finn being a total douchebag. And Rachel slapping the shit out of him was one of my more favorite things. I hope they don't just revert back to Rachel all googly-eyed for him next week because he was kind of a manipulative bitch and needs to be in the dog house for awhile. Also, I looooooved the Mark Salling tweet! I'm gradually coming around to the idea of Kurt/Puck.

The Office - I liked it, although I don't know that they can sustain this co-managers idea. I think it's an interesting way to explore Jim's development, but there's just no way it can be long term. I hope it's more of a Michael Scott Paper Company short-lived thing. And, I have to say, my favorite part was the mug scene. Michael's "gin" response was fucking perfection. Loved it.

I liked Finn's douchebaggery because it showed he was capable of self-serving calculation, and he clearly felt a little bad about it. It means he isn't as totally clueless as he appeared to be, lol. But I agree, Rachel needs to get over him and crush on Mr. Shue instead ;).

I'm also hoping the co-managers situation is a temporary one. I don't really see how they could keep it up for very long, it would get tedious to watch. XD I'm guessing after Jim and Pam return from their honeymoon, the status quo will be challenged.

I loved the Bones episode! It was sad though, the random killing and all :( And everytime someone discovered the guy playing the piano.
"it's Boothy" made me laugh so much omg
yay Clark! I like Wendall and Mr Migel-Murrey better but yay to Clark!

I really liked Flash Forward, and Dom wasn't even in it! promising, right!
and thank you for "Shakespeare & Sulu Solve Mysteries" now it's in my head, along with "Voldemort's brother and Sulu look badass".

I love Demetri too, though idk how much of it is that I like John Cho haha. I keep thinking he's whatshername's baby daddy for some reason lol. You know, how she's crying at the sonogram maybe that's bc he's dead? idk

and it's like, Shakespeare Mark's paranoia is going to be the thing that sets the events into place you know? maybe if he hadn't known, it wouldn't have happened... you get what I mean. Oh irony. But he did burn the bracelet. Maybe his daughter will make more! hahaha

the toilet seat blackout story was so funny

"Voldemort's brother and Sulu look badass"

Hee! "John Steed's Brother and Penny Widmore Try To Save Their Marriage"

lmao the possibilities are endless.

"Harold & Martin Luther Don't Go To White Castle"

I adore John Cho, and after the pilot I wasn't sure about Demetri yet. I thought he was kind of a bitch, lolol. But now I love him! <3 And that is an awesome theory about Janis's baby! :O

Haha, I am so sure Mark's daughter will make another bracelet! She's gonna ask what happened to the one she gave him and he'll say he lost it, and then she'll make him a new one. DUN DUN DUUUUUUNNN! XD

I just really liked their scene together at the end... and they keeps talking about his fiancée and we haven't seen her yet so are we supposed to care really? lol

Re: HIMYM, lolz. I knew Lily was going to be all into the strippers. Silly Marshall and his elaborate fantasies!

Re: Supernatural. Oh, Castiel! I expected to be COMPLETELY distracted by Hippie!Gaius!Cas, but instead by love was stolen early on by Castiel's stern 'This isn't funny, Dean. The voice is telling me the minutes are almost up.' And then he waits for him in the exact spot he was standing in. Hee!

Re: The Office. It continues to amaze me how Jim is TOTALLY turning into Michael. Ever since that conversation they had a couple of seasons back where Michael was like, I haven't always been like this... TOTALLY HAPPENING.

Re: Bones, omg. Uncle Booth was LOVE. And Sweets is ALWAYS love.

SPN = <3. I don't even need to say it, you said it all for me (Ok just gotta say I completely cracked about about the little voice & the minutes)

I'm really curious about this Kurt/Puck vid you keep mentioning? *raises brow* And yeah, I still love Puck too, he's just so bitterly jealous. And Finn was gold - you were totally right about the facial expressions. He got it down!

Also finding it amusing how much the same your MP reviews are weekly :P Show really must be lame, hey?

Haven't watched Flash Forward yet, but thank you for reminding me I managed to get that one just before we left yesterday XD

LOL and I never even watched the video! It just makes me happy that the cast is so fan-aware and fun. XD But if you want to see it, @chriscolfer (Kurt) RT'd the link recently.

lmao maybe if I reviewed Melrose Place right after I watched it, I'd remember more details. XD But yeah, it's not really transcendant. I'm watching more out of loyalty for the vintage show than out of pure interest.

Yay for watching FlashForward! I think it's very promising so far.

I love The Good Wife! It really draws me in and JM is such a good actress, I forgot about that. I know what you mean about Will and Alicia - I love them as friends, wouldn't want anything more than that.

I think I need to find someone who makes TGW icons now, though. ;)

HIMYM: You meh about HIMYM?? D:

Glee: I find it so cool that we're shown everyone's biggest flaws right away
Same. Even the most awesomest/popular/telanted characters are hugely flawed, and it's what makes them realistic and the show even more awesome.

Episode needed more Sue
I think I am the only person around who can't stand her at all. She has great one-liners but ugh shoot Sue now plz

FlashForward I was possibly more impressed with this than I was with the pilot. And I really liked the pilot.
Same. Probably because we'd sen so many of the pilot already at Comic Con so it was 'just' a repeat and because of that to us not an episode full of big reveations/twists like this one.

but I'm pretty sure the writers are gonna pull a double-surprise on this one, i.e. HAY GUYS LOOK HE LIVES and then, bam! Bussed, or something. LOL.
Like Charlie in LOST? D: NOOOO!

but Mark's fixation on his vision just might be what gets them there. Sad and fascinating, like a trainwreck.
Knowing the future creates it in the first place...

LMAO @ Wedeck's blackout true story. LMAO FOREVER. I love that guy.
That made me lmao irl omg!

Supernatural: LEGENDEPIC

Fringe Needs more fake!Charlie and Nina Sharp
Needs more pattern/other dimenson stuff in general. At least tMotW was related to it for once.

Yeah, I didn't LOL very much in the last ep. :/ Hopefully tonight's works better for me. *crosses fingers*

I love Sue, lmao. I guess I love her like some people love Ben on Lost. I would hate to have her in my life, but she's so much fun to watch. XD

Haha, dude, motherfrakkin' DANKO got bussed on Lost, lmfao!! But yeah, I see what you're saying and that's exactly what I meant. Sigh.

Agreed 100%!
