I'm disappointed, HIMYM

When I saw the synopsis of "Weekend at Barney's" sometime last week, I was weary about the fact that The Playbook still exists. I gave the writers the benefit of the doubt; maybe it was a copy that Barney made for Ted a long time ago, so technically Barney doesn't have a Playbook. Or it was a fake Playbook. Or anything! I just thought Barney burning the Playbook during "The Final Page" was such a big deal; it's one of the biggest reasons why I believe Barney was ready for Robin. The Playbook being back cheapens that moment, in my opinion.

I'm all caught up!

Spent my weekend with Matthew Perry and gang, and I am now ready for the next episode! Which, I believe, will be the Bradley Whitford episode! I like seeing Matthew's friends guest star (I adore Lauren Graham), and I can't wait for the Courteney Cox episode that they just shot recently. The pictures they tweeted [1, 2, 3, 4] just make me want to watch Friends again.

Yes, I am disappointed that Ryan King said Manchester City is going take the Premier League trophy again, but I'm gonna let that slide; he doesn't care about soccer. The show itself has been good. I think I'm in denial of the fact that I relate to these people, quite a bit. I mean...they're crazy! And I'm not! Right?! Anyways... The show is endearing, although there are scenes that are quite cringeworthy and cliched that I skipped through. Here's hoping the ratings picked up so the show can go on (heh) longer.

I've missed Michael Vartan!

I've just watched the fourth episode of Go On, "Bench-Clearing Bawl," in which Vartan made a tiny cameo as himself. I would pay to see Matthew Perry and Michael Vartan play hockey together! Which I would like to believe actually happened during the shooting of this episode. Like a real game in the middle of shooting. I digress...

This show is definitely growing on me. I'm starting to relate to or care about the characters.

Michael Vartan, on the other hand, I haven't seen much since Alias. And seeing the little scene that he had made me want to go rewatch Alias again.

I guess a happy ending is too much to ask for?

It is a show surrounded by death. There is a lot of anger and sadness; it's almost like every conversation ends up with someone crying and/or shouting. Everyone is broken. Why was I still expecting a happy ending?

I had a feeling that Nate would end up dead, but I thought it would be at the very end of the series. I mean, what kind of show kills off its first-billed cast member with three episodes left in the series? It's insane how much I cried during those last episodes. To be fair, it's just Nate who had an unfortunate death; everyone else seemed to lead a long, happy life after his departure. So was he the problem? But what a heart-breaking and unexpected death that was!

Happy October 19th! :)

Troy and Abed back from suuuuummer!

Community is finally back! The first episode of season four "History 101" shows the gang back from their (last ever?) summer break at Greendale as seniors. Annie wants to experience senioritis; Troy and Britta's relationship progresses; Jeff is now the new Jeff who puts his friends ahead of himself; Abed has to deal with the last first day of school.

The "last first" theme makes it feel like this could be the last first episode of Community. Not saying that season five (and six and a movie) wouldn't happen, but I don't want to be too optimistic at the moment. You never know, with NBC. Although, with 30 Rock just ended and The Office about to end, NBC might give Community a better chance of continuing. Dean Pelton moving in to the apartment next to Jeff's certainly means the show wants to expand beyond the campus; to let the show continue after graduation. I'm excited to see what the rest of the gang would do.

Honestly, I didn't feel the lack of Dan Harmon in the episode, which is a very good thing. Hopefully this season is good –– better than last season at least.

Everyone's just so strange

I'm currently at the beginning at season 3 and I am wondering why I'm even watching this show. I know I was originally attracted to it only because it's Peter Krause and Michael C. Hall, but seeing how well the show is rated I expected...more. I do like the Fisher brothers, but everyone else annoys the shit out of me.

I can't stand Claire with all her whining and drama. Ruth just rubs me the wrong way, and I think she's a little crazy. Rico, once he becomes partner, is now a huge asshole and feels entitled to everything; I mean, I understand not wanting to be treated like an employee anymore but most of the times it feels like he thinks he's now superior. Keith, who I thought was really nice at the beginning of the show, I now find to be an inconsiderate jerk.

I don't get what happened to Nate. He had a major surgery, and a year later he's married to Lisa?  I know she's the mother of his child, but she's also the mother of his child who wants him to never have anything to do with her. Their relationship is very strange and she's just plain weird. Also, Nate now seems to be a completely different person who's overly mellow and it annoys me.

I find almost everything about this show to be annoying, yet I can't stop watching. I can't figure out why...
