Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to my season’s worth of recaps for How I Met Your Mother. Welcome, once more, to Urban HIMYMs.

The World Series is over, so I don’t even have to worry about fighting the instinct to look away during my recaps. That’s a good thing, no?

 

And away we go… (more…)

It’s an interesting week in the world of new music releases…

Ah, historic music video. Nothing quite like it, eh? Anyhoo – the soundtrack to Todd Haynes’ Dylan bio-pic I’m Not There is out today. And, uh, so are a few other things that’ll make you think it’s 1999. JUMP!

30 Rock – I’m Going To Assume That’s a Haldeman Reference Monday, October 29, 2007

Hi, everyone. I suppose I should introduce myself, as I am the latest addition to the DeadOn collective. I usually do my blogging with Yostal over at the Hoover Street Rag, but I’ve bribed blackmailed convinced the powers that be over here to let me recap 30 Rock, the funniest show on TV that’s not Booknotes.

We open with Jack in Liz’s office to present her with the GE Followship Award. Pete raises the objection that Liz ccouldn’t possibly win a Fellowship Award, as she doesn’t like people, but Jack corrects him. The GE Followship Award is presented annually to the “woman – sorry, person who best exemplifies a follower.” Liz objects initially, but it comes with $10,000 and a giant novelty check (so it’s really worth more like $10,250), so she quickly changes her mind. Jack waxes fondly on how she’s come around after being so resistant to “product integration, pos mens, cross promotion, and adverlingus”. Liz decides she should probably get a 401k. Jack sputters, “W-Where do you invest your money, Liz?” “I have, like, twelve grand in checking?” “Are you…an immigrant?” (more…)

This episode opens with Shauvon making a phone call to David (her ex-fiance). She gets his voicemail, which says “If this is Shauvon, just know that this is a new phone and I’m having problems with it” (sure, buddy). Shauvon leaves a message, and then goes to talk to KellyAnne about the situation. KellyAnne tells her “if you really love him, you should go” (way to be supportive of her independence!). Join me after the jump to find out how the rest of episode focuses on Dunbar being a very large turd.

My Own Worst Enemy-Got Scrubs Back On Track Friday, October 26, 2007

Who gives a fuck about the World Series and the Boston College-Virginia Tech football game when Scrubs is back! Finally after every other show had it’s season premiere, Scrubs kicked off their seventh and final season. And I must say that this was the best season premiere since Season Two. Everything was back on track to the Scrubs that made us all fans. Hey Bill Lawrence…good job. And what started it off right was the wrapping up of that situation Elliot and JD had gotten themselves into during the season finale last May. (more…)

Life isn’t so bad without a morning rock song to start it off is it? I was out sick yesterday so the parade of rock-less days continued. Apologies. Let’s return to normality.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to my season’s worth of recaps for How I Met Your Mother. Welcome, once more, to Urban HIMYMs.

So today’s Urban HIMYMs may be slightly lacking because my full first run through this episode I spent trying to solve one of the show’s great mysteries, so I sincerely hope that my detective work will make up for it.

So this episode picks up exactly where last episode last off – with Parissa and Tricia screaming vulgarities at each other. Shauvon tries to intervene, but the two other girls are too intent on ripping each other to pieces (unfortunately, no clothing was torn off in the process). Join me after the jump to find out just how bad things got.

Survivor: Tornadoes! Friday, October 19, 2007

So, some pretty nasty storms blew through northwest Indiana tonight (or “Michiana,” as the locals call it.  Drives me fucking nuts.)   There were driving winds, tons of rain, golfball-sized hail, and tornadoes.  I spent a good chunk of the evening in the basement of the dorm with 200 girls all huddled around the TV hoping the news would go back to “Grey’s Anatomy.”  Kill me.  That show blows now.  My TIVO only recorded intermittent “Survivor,” so here’s what I got:

Based on previews and the fact that people were all mixed around, the tribes swapped members.  I believe Fighting Tiger got Aaron and James and Flying Dragon got Sherea and Frosti.  Based on a clip of tribal, it seems like Jaime and PG threw the challenge so they could vote off a newbie.  That……really does not sit well with me.  That kind of sucks.  And based on the exit interview, Aaron went home.  That’s all I got.  Ya know what I don’t got?  Tivo of “Survivor,” “CSI” or “The Office.”  BAH!

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to my season’s worth of recaps for How I Met Your Mother. Welcome, once more, to Urban HIMYMs.

Before I start my recap for this week, I do want to mention that if you aren’t checking out the “How It Really Happened” on CBS Innertube, you really should be. Not pure genius, but good for one nice additional laugh per week, and they do a nice job of getting things that Ted might not know about in telling the story.

Speaking of which, I do need to know, did anyone else’s parents not go into the kind of elaborate and graphic detail as to how they met? Or do we just presume that by the Year 2030, sexual mores and standards will be so loose in American life that these semi-risque tales will seem somewhat quaint, like sipping sodas at the malt shop? Probably shouldn’t think about it too much…

This episode opens with Trisha and Parissa talking about both of them taking a walk with Alex and laughing about things. A little later, KellyAnne tells Parissa that she has to tell Trisha that she kissed Alex, but Parissa says that Alex should be the one to set things striaght because he told her that he doesn’t like Trisha in that way. Want to find out how badly the shit hits the fan? Join me after the jump.

Survivor: Did You Guys Know We’re in CHINA? Friday, October 12, 2007

Previously, some stuff happened.  Back from Tribal, we learn that JR’s “game plan” is starting to kick in.  He says his work ethic has improved now that he’s past last night’s vote.  He says Courtney is going home next for sure.  She calls him a “cocky son of a bitch” when he raises his voice to tell her not to grab a hot pot.  Oh fuck them both.  Seriously.  I am so over these two.

Over at Fighting Tiger, they discover their rice is wet and moldy.  Ew.  We see an interview with Erik (WHO?) about separating the rice.  Dave starts in on Sherea and she snaps and it is AWESOME.  He’s such a dick.  He says she’d have grounds to say those things if she did stuff around camp.  She goes to toss some shells away (not sure why) and he goes running after her because he was saving them for his mom (not sure why).  She talks about how condescending he is and I gotta say, I’m siding with Sherea.  Frosti and Dave go swimming and Frosti counsels him to be nicer to the people he’s “leading.”  Frosti interviews that Crazy Dave may have worn out his welcome.  Well, he certainly has with ME.
