Ruling out another show

by Amy K. Bredemeyer


Monk (S08E09): in all the years that the show has been on, why hasn't Mr. Monk's birthday ever been a problem before? But seriously, poor Monk. The kids leaving the party after the entertainment but before the cake is seriously really sad, and it hurt me. :( Obviously, a lot of Natalie trying to throw Monk a party follows. Natalie telling Monk to choose between the port-a-john and the dumpster was funny. And I slightly thought it was a ploy for the party until the policeman got shot, then I freaked. Monk getting Cowboy Hank again made me happy.


The Simpsons
(S21E04): the annual Treehouse of Horror episode. These are typically quite good, at least in my opinion. I loved the beginning with the costume changes - werewolf Harry Potter is hilarious. "you're a smart kid, bet you like ideas" LMAO. The funny definitions of "ding dong ditch" and "TP her" were amusing. Although my jaw seriously dropped when Bart pulled Hooper's head from his bag. Reverend Lovejoy's wife is Lisa's godmother?!? I know the Treehouse episodes are non-canonical in the sense that they take place in an alternate universe, but that's still an interesting thought. The communion joke was pretty funny, too. The musical number was a letdown this year, tho.

Family Guy: no new episode this week.

American Dad! (S05E04): I'm sorry. This episode was ridiculous all around. I think this will be the end of my American Dad! watching.

How I Met Your Mother (S05E05): so this episode was really funny. I was a bit confused as to why Marshall and Lily are just a "we" now as opposed to the past ten years that they've been together and two years they've been married?? The Tantrum stuff was realllly amusing. "4 minutes" is all it took for Marshall to happy up in the car, haha. Why listen to the dog story without Lily?? not the best episode, since both storylines felt kinda rushed.

Lincoln Heights
(S04E06): Poor Lizzie, still thinking about Johnnie Nightingale. Whatever happened to that lesbian friend of Cassie's - the minister's daughter? It got creepy when Lizzie kept trying to get in extra sleep so she could see Johnnie more. I love how the 7th Heaven Martin character has come back as a womanizer. I was quite impressed with the scenes where the family is just waiting on word from the Army. I'm trying to decide how cliche it is that Lizzie is falling for a white boy like Cassie.

House, M.D. (S06E06): I thought that the joke about Cameron in those pants was funny. That room was so Amber-centric it was creepy. I looooved: "Don't you have school?" "recess." hahahaha. The shot of Wilson talking to Amber before bed was really sweet... and sad. "Visiting hours don't apply to my patients," haha.

Little People, Big World: missed "Downhill Dwarf" and "Game Over"

Jon and Kate Plus Eight (S05E18): kinda whiny of Kate in the beginning to talk about all the trips they've taken this year. The butterfly thing was neat, and the girls with the birds and insects were cool. Jon and the rocket were boring, and the water balloons were funny. Reminds me of my brother and I not really getting into water balloons appropriately when we were around eight and five, respectively. Kate saying "rigmarole" was funny, too. "Kate the Dragon" was ridiculous, tho. Apparently Kate has no more fear of heights... since she mentioned that she'd even do this again, too. The fact these puppies air out of order is so annoying... like this episode is stated as taking place before school started, so why not air it before the "First Day of School" episode?!? I guess the filming is taking a nosedive tho, since next week seems to be only Kate in the show.

18 Kids and Counting: well, I missed the new episode but did catch "Duggars and Bates Reloaded" (S03E05) It's really focused on the Bates family, and could have served as a pilot for them. It was a very nice episode, but it was strange that JimBob kept talking as if the visit was a surprise, but the Bates had planned on them coming... Kelly Bates' request of "more beds" was strange in context, but she meant for the company, which a lot of bloggers on the 'net apparently didn't understand, LoL. I could swear Jessa/Jinger wore eye makeup in the interview segment... I did finally understand why that remodel got out of control like it seemed on the other episodes covering this story arc, LoL. It never ceases to amaze me how little space some really large families make do with.

list of missing: "Duggars in Dixie," "Duggar on a Diet," and "Old McDuggar Had a Farm"

Table for 12: okay, still missing the two eps "hit the deck" and "ramp it up" but found out it's off the air until November 17th, so I have some time to catch up. kinda.

South Park (S13E10): it was a pretty funny premise. At first I thought it would be like another Simpsons with the wrestling crap. But it turned out to be quite different, and the townspeople believing it all was hilarious. Maybe not as hilarious as Cartman's female alter-ego being addicted to abortions, but still.
