Not a lot of fun episodes this week...

by Amy K. Bredemeyer


The Simpsons
(S21E08): the jab at the Creative Arts Emmys made me mad, LoL. The nerds being the snow dogs was funny. Funny how the snow kept blowing Bart up the stairs. The brothers montage was pretty nice. South Park impersonations were only average. The bad kids hawking lugies was strange. The grown-up depiction of Maggie and Lisa was about the same as always, but I really liked how "third sister" looked, haha. Maggie "being a baby" was cute.

Family Guy (S08E09): The Scooby-Doo thing was funny, especially with Dr. House in it, haha. Other than that, not much to say about this episode, LoL.

How I Met Your Mother: last week's (S05E10): love the premise and the first few minutes giving/explaining it. LOVED Barney in the overalls. Was surprised that Marshall couldn't slam-dunk.

this week (S05E11): wait, we've never really seen any of them smoke, but all of a sudden Robin smokes all the time and Marshall smokes when he's stressed and Lily smokes when Marshall does?!? I think the kids said it best with all the "WHAT!?!" comments. Really, Ted and Barney, too?? "dammit, Marshall! We already have four Vikings lamps!" I love how when Marshall called Robin to stop her from smoking, Lily waved at the TV, haha. It was interesting how they gave "dates" for when the different characters stopped smoking for real.

House, M.D.: no new eps til January.

Little People, Big World (S05E16): it was nice that the dwarf family from Iraq has found a new home in Idaho and that the mother made a traditional Iraqi meal for the Roloffs. Otherwise, nothing much happened.

Caught "Game Over" (S05E04) for the most part (was cooking & doing laundry). It was sad that Zach got benched for his grades, and even worse that even being kept from his passion didn't help him improve his grades (as we saw throughout the most recent episodes). There was a nice tribute to Mike again at the end.

still missing "Downhill Dwarf"

Jon and Kate Plus Eight: still missing the finale, "It's a Crazy Life, But it's Our Life."

Cake Boss (S02E11): LoL, Buddy saying that sitting on the bike was like touching the guy's girlfriend, haha. Oh man that Tea Lady.... doesn't know what she wants, asks Buddy for suggestions, but tells him she hates his idea... um ok. And that cake bike was SOOOO BIG.... why not make it a smaller scale?? It was funny how much Buddy's mother was yelling at him over riding his friend's motorcycle around the block. That teapot cake feeds WAAAAAY more than the ten people at the party. And the fact that her friends made it sound like she has this party every year was weird... then why did she have NO IDEA how she wanted it to look??

Now missing "Pizza, Poochies, and Pop-in-law" and "Golf Greens and Gravity"

Table for 12 (S02E12): wow, that's quite a difference between the heights in the sextuplets. Betty and Eric are just so much fun to watch talk to eachother, LoL. The honesty and happiness warms my heart. There was verrrry little Megan tho, for some reason.

Also caught "Ramp it Up" (S02E02): That was a pretty kickin' monitor they have... that puppy runs like $1200!! Those kids play so nice together most of the time! Tara and Rachel were having a girls' tea party and Tara welcomed Ryan into the party when he wanted to join in as the waiter.

missing the eps "summer," "busy day," "jumping in," "brace yourself"

18 Kids and Counting (S03E27): The Bates house is really nice now!! I thought it was an interesting interview with Rusty that he didn't have kids because he didn't want to risk not being able to raise them in a godly manner... otherwise he would have gone with "a dozen" haha. Dang that was some good music, and I'm not even a bluegrass fan! True good stuff, particularly the violinist, in my opinion. It was also funny to hear some lingo, like "cutting it up" haha. It was interesting to see the oldest few kids doing First Responders and Volunteer Firefighters. "I don't know if I'd want to do it as a job but it's fun for volunteer" hmmm... interesting. I don't know that a skating rink is the best place for a stroller... what if it flipped?!?

also caught "GrandDuggar: First Month" (S03E24): Josh being on camera and not knowing how to put in the carseat was problematic and had me worried. And the tiny baby seemed to be skeptical as well, LoL. WHOA... what was up with that professor's hair?!??!? LOL on the girl in the elevator who doesn't want to read about the Duggars... hilarious! Anna definitely looked tired in the interview, LoL. Really, Josh? Rolling up in a jag? The doctor was kinda strange looking. One of the cameramen asking one of the kids to whack his fist with a pan was disturbing. I didn't really understand what Josh and Anna were doing in that one store... did she buy a purse? a necklace? anything? It was nice to hear about John David's updated plan and business. His comments trying to sell cars (like "as seen on tv") were funny. That's a nice Mac monitor in Josh's office, too. I think Michelle notices Josh's attitude sometimes... she made a point of noting that John David's approach to selling cars is very different.

list of missing: "Duggars in Dixie," "Duggar on a Diet"
