Shotgun! (Oh, Barney.)
Watched Last Night:
How I Met Your Mother: I thought some individual jokes stood up better than the episode as a whole, but who am I to complain? Those individual jokes were pretty funny! I loved Barney's intensely complicated strategy for winning the bet with Ted (and his spot-on imitation of practically every reggae song ever)--it's that sort of messing with our minds that makes this show great. I also really liked the "But" rule for set-ups. My "but" would clearly be "She's really great...but she's vegan." Also, what kind of psychopath pours milk in the cereal bowl first? Does the cereal not then float, preventing you from filling the bowl with it? Madness! I didn't really love Robin's plot this week (again), but whatev--this show is still legendary.
Chuck: I still love it! So wait, the DEA also has super-hot spies? For reals? (Although from what I've seen on this show and Alias, there are no non-super-hot spies.) I'm hoping we'll see Karina again--moral ambiguity always makes for an interesting character. So wow, Chuck reeeeally must have some Trust Issues, or some intense Bryce Issues, because he chose to trust Karina (she of the aforementioned moral ambiguity) over Sarah (she of the "Don't ever not trust me again!" speech in the previous episode). Whoops. And, um, can we get a little less Morgan? Please? For at least an episode or so? Regardless, Chuck is still rocking my socks.
The Bachelor: You can read my recap of The Bachelor here. But I'm not gonna lie to you, it was a pretty boring episode.
Will Watch or DVR Tonight:
(Descriptions from Zap2it.com's TV listings)
Reaper: Sam's request for time off is met with another vessel box, this one to capture the soul of a disgruntled magician who is killing people who do not appreciate his performance. The CW, 9 PM.
Boston Legal: Gen. Fitzgerald goes to the firm for help when the Army threatens to discharge him after he reveals his homosexuality; Carl asks Katie to assist a new associate in a custody battle over a 9-year-old bullfighter; Alan finds himself speaking gibberish. ABC, 10 PM.
Stupid baseball, pre-empting House... Like anyone really cares if Boston wins the pennant. (Okay, okay, I give! You care! But I'm still bitter...)
