I need more stuff making more episodes.

by Amy K. Bredemeyer


The Simpsons
: not this week.

Family Guy: not new this week.

How I Met Your Mother (S05E16): funny opening gag. Teacup pig was unexpected. Lily's issues with Scooter came out of nowhere, and, as usual the misunderstanding between Marshall and Lily was funny. I couldn't believe Ted did that to Henrietta, and her parents looked so excited to be meeting him. It was funny that Barney thought that all female pharmaceutical representatives were hott, LoL. My jaw dropped when the ring falling out of the jacket caused an unexpected proposal.

House, M.D.: not new this week. Finale to be May 17th.

Cake Boss: not new this week.

The Secret Life of the American Teenager (S02E21): I liked Ashley's hair much better when it was wavy and volume-y. It's so boring straight like this. I don't know that I understand why Ricky wants to talk to his mom. And why would Betty ask BEN to help her pick out a china pattern??!? WEIRD. overall, this episode was really boring.

Table for 12: no idea. and not sure why not.

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

16 and Pregnant (S02E03): wow, big family! and quite a testament to fostering. I'm interested in her choice to become pregnant to get negative attention from her family. Again with the 32 weeks start. Nevaeh is a pretty name, and I like how she/they came up with it. Valerie was problematic enough that she has to do homeschool (but still had a real teacher)... that sucks. And, this one is only 15 and in the ninth grade. Who the hell waits until they are 39 weeks pregnant to have a baby shower?? haha, she didn't know what a "bowel movement" was, LoL. It always amuses me when the girls are like "it hurts," as if they never before believed that labor and delivery were painful. I was impressed that Matt showed up from 200 miles away. 5 hours into labor and she was already 5 cm dilated, that's pretty good for a first baby. She did have several hours of active pushing it seemed, and that's rough. This is the first episode we've seen where a baby had some critical issues just after birth. (sidenote, I wish Valerie wasn't so ugly. she's hard to look at when she's the only one on-screen, especially when her mouth is open, LoL. Again with bad examples of cribs... this one had a blanket on the baby at only three weeks old, plus non-mesh crib bumpers and a stuffed animal. $189-210/week for daycare for a 2-month old is a lot of money for anyone, regardless of age. But childcare is not cheap in this country, and I guess Valerie didn't know that, LoL. It was strange that the title mentioned "October" a bit after she had already crossed off every day for the month of October on her calendar. That's a really white baby... I wasn't expecting that, LoL.

19 Kids and Counting (S04E05): Little Josie is 39 days old at the start of this episode, which means it was taped around January 18th, so the progress is over a month behind. I found it interesting how John David knew how to fix everything. I once was at a party where ten or so grown men stood around a hole spouting out water while my now-husband (then eighteen) drove off, came back twenty minutes later with a truck and a toolbox, and proceeded to fix the problem. This whole episode really made John David look like a much better catch than Josh, LoL. I wonder if that's why they're putting a focus on him, haha.
