In Season 2, Cranston (Breaking Bad, Malcolm in the Middle) played Ted’s super annoying boss, Hammond Druthers, who was demoted after his phallic building design was hated by a customer at their architectural firm. Ted ended being Druthers’ boss and had to fire him. Ted’s timing wasn’t great as the firing happened while Druthers’ was having a heart attack. To be fair to Ted, he thought Druthers was faking it.
Who wants to bet he’ll end up being the Mother’s father? I’ll put that prediction in writing right here.
Yesterday’s season premiere of How I Met Your Mother was pretty fantastic. Admittedly, I was a little worried at first about the writers stretching a wedding weekend over 23 episodes, but the way they handled flash forwards in this episode made me more optimistic. They’ve done strange things with story structure before and my faith has been restored.
Also, since we can be pretty certain that Ted will meet the mother in the final episode, I was somewhat concerned that we, the constant viewer, wouldn’t get a chance to learn about the mother. Even though she was revealed at the end of last season, I thought there was a chance the writer’s wouldn’t give her much screen until near the end of the season.
Instead, the writers are handling this beautifully. The mother met Lilly (and they had wonderful chemistry) in the very first episode of this season and we learn some things about her right off the bat. It seems as though she’s going to meet all of Ted’s friends before he meets her, essentially putting her through an interview with the audience where we get to learn about what makes her perfect for Ted before the titular meeting.
This just reinforces what I’ve always believed — the best part of HIMYM really is the innovative story structures and the clever writing.
This season is going to be legen…. wait for it….
Why Republicans have no heart and Democrats have no balls.
This is absolutely hilarious and the most brilliant piece of political skewering I’ve seen in a long time.
It is an Australian TV comedy that will do more than keep you occupied while network TV in the US is on it’s summer break.
The concept is simple, yet bloody brilliant. Hamish and Andy, two Australian comedians, travel Europe and explore the cultures of various countries while also playing pranks on each other and poking a little fun.
The combination feels like a travelogue meets sketch comedy with a little bit of Jackass sprinkled in.
In this episode the duo visited Spain, Paris, and Russia:
Give it a chance. If you have even the slightest sense of humor I promise you will laugh. It’s a free YouTube video with a money back guarantee!
If you end up loving it and can’t watch it live in Australia you can watch the episodes on YouTube shortly after they air.
The title of this video is “Every Blink 182 album sung in a minute.” He misses some songs but still, this is pretty impressive.
