House & How I Met Your Mother are Back!

by Amy K. Bredemeyer

I need to open with an apology. While we're in the moving process, we have no DVR, so unless I'm home to catch it live or it plays on the internet, it's tough. I've been gratefully going over to a neighbor's house to try to keep up, as they graciously offered their DVR for me to (ab)use. However, we all know I watch a LOT of television, and I don't like to be over at their place for hours on end. So, I'm doing what I can. This will probably mean that certain episodes get missed and then caught up later (this week I ran out of time to finish 19 Kids and Counting), but just wanted to give you a head's up.


Kate Plus Eight
(S01E07): So this explains why Hannah's hair is shorter sometimes... it got cut in this episode. But Kate crying over that was ridiculous. haha, everyone confuses the three little girls from behind now. "Here's one with a lizard." "no, you're a girl." um, Kate? It's 2010. If one of your daughters wants a lizard backpack, it's okay. haha, 1 extra lunchbox. Who tells their kid to run in a store??? Kate is too into shoes, LoL (but she wears an 8.5-9 if anyone's interested). "I don't know if I can get up that early anymore," really?? How much are you sleeping in these days, Kate??!? How long is this bus ride that Kate keeps emphasizing?!? "they better do it right from now on." um, six of your kids are only six years old. Have a heart.

Little People, Big World (S06E05 &S06E06): It's Father's Day. Jacob is still having phone control issues, LoL. whoa... deep sea fishing?? I wonder if this is any relation to the fact that Kate and the kids did that last week? Jacob brought Levi so he had someone his own age there... ok. Snow in June?? Oregon is crazy!! Meanwhile, in Newport, OR, it's beachtime. Amy bought ANOTHER camera because she forgot her two? AND the new one got totally wet an hour later so she got ANOTHER one!! Zach doesn't want Jacob to turn into a city boy, LoL. Zach sees Jacob as hanging with him now only because he can't keep up with Jeremy yet. Once he can, he'll be gone... interesting perspective. Wood-chopping contest. that's different! I'm not into fishing, but I don't know that I'd ever go when it's cold enough out that I'd have to wear gloves! LoL.
Zach got the call from the radio station?? How would they have his phone number?? Amy looked nice in that red suit jacket. "Dad, I need a job. And so does Jeremy." hahaha. Weird way to put this: "I don't know if I'm ready to drive a car with a new car small." Interesting way for Zach to hold his laptop... keyboard against his chest and screen on his lap. I've never seen that before... anywhere. Zach knew to shake the interviewer's hand at the end of the interview, good for him. Oh yay! I'm glad that Zach got the soccer job! I've never seen people more attached to an old first car, LoL.
House, M.D. (S07E01): I was totally lost on why House was hurt, LoL. Nice new opening. "right now, we are more important than what's at the hospital" hehe. Cuddy not being in the bedroom really looked bad for House to Wilson. ohhhh she hid in the closet!! How did Chase end up in charge of acting like they had a neurosurgeon on the premises? And if he actually really did have to perform surgery, what in the world were they gonna do? ewwwww! Is House really using his laptop naked??!? House and Cuddy are so cute together. I'm excited to see them take a trip together. House's big fears about it not working were thought-through, but still overly fearful. Why does Chase want to sleep with Thirteen? I feel like they just started dating and they're saying "I Love You," but I guess they've also known each other for like 20-25 years. Strange that Foreman did all of that research and realized that Thirteen just disappeared.

How I Met Your Mother (S06E01): "dude, you fixed church" hahaha Ted. He grades papers in the bar?? I love the "dibs" on stuff. What is the banjo music about? I'm surprised Barney let Ted buy him out... he has $$. Isn't Ted a little old to be fluff-spiking his hair tall like that? What was the 1 in 5 ankles thing?? why show those two lesbians that ended up together with a kid? Like, what's the point of showing the future there?

Melissa & Joey (S01E07):
don't like Mel's dress. Oh goody! We know where we are! Toledo. Why does she have this strange new assistant? The tiny little message thing was funny. Mel thinking they won't twist anything she's going to say is naive, especially for having worked in politics for some time now! Zoning out in zoning meetings. haha. And I feel like they're hitting the "Toledo" thing hard, too. Ryder was dumb in that interview. Joe was rocking some biceps when he was stirring that chili pot! PRESCHOOL reform??!?!? I thoroughly loves watching Mel dance to that game. I love how Mel has one single cheer. haha Joe did kid commercials. awww... the Chinese food ended up being a work dinner.
19 Kids and Counting (S05E09): Oh. The studio interviews are in the shop. Interesting. I've always kind've wondered where they did theirs. Jordyn is cute. Anna made it there without Josh, LoL? Really, the theme of this episode is taking pictures? LoL.
(I didn't finish this episode, so I'll mention a tiny bit more next week.)
Teen Mom (S02E09):
Catelynn: sucks that her mom was a tool when Catelynn talked about calling Carly for her birthday. Interesting scrapbook. Sucks that Ryan doesn't know his dad's situation with the rehab and the jail and all. Butch & Catelynn's mom have a "no contact" order and they've been together all this time??!? I thought they were married...? Um, did Catelynn's mom think a lawyer was free? $1500 for a lawyer is pretty reasonable.
Maci: I'm surprised her parents aren't going to follow her there... help her move stuff, etc.
Farrah: she thinks she's going to learn to sew and make money?? Why didn't her dad ask for more details on the car scam? "Sophia's lawyer" ?? Why didn't Farrah think she'd need a DNA test?? Farrah had no idea what to do for a stove fire? She works in a kitchen!
Amber: ewww... Amber without makeup again. omg she left a fork and knife near Leah?? I thought Amber did mixed martial arts to lose all the weight... now she's acting like she's new at it?? Amber yells at Gary for letting Leah play with a glass candle, but she doesn't take it away from her until later. I hate how often she uses the f-word. haha, "supposably."
If You Really Knew Me (S01E09): Columbia High School. But, I decided that I'm donw with this show. I've mentioned a few times in the past that it was getting boring and that there's nothing really new... ever. So, after a few days of deliberation, I'm choosing to cut it.
Better With You
: Those tunnels aren't that dark, LoL. Nice little intro. "I like what I'm not seeing" haha. Picture count on the fridge was funny. Inventor is interesting, and unique. "quick thinking... not good thinking." Okay, older sister started dating that guy when she was like 16, so she's about 26. Mia and Casey are the young ones. Ben and Maddie are the un-married ones. I kinda love the "moving fast" thing... I think it'll create a lot of comedy. The breakfast invitation was funny. Vicky and Joel Putney are the parents. "I'm sorry. But I mean it!" "We really should start walking home soon" lmaoaoao. Vicky has a drinking game... I LOVE IT!!! The parents finding the tips card at the end could have been more amusing. I liked the framing closer, too... I hope all of the episodes start and finish with those!
