OBSESSIONS OF THE WEEK BARACK OBAMA, The Presidential Election and The American People. I’m the proudest Canadian you will ever find, at least in Boston. But last night I found myself insanely jealous of my American friends. Not only was their election a celebration the scale of which Canada has never seen, but they now have […]

Thank You, Robin
  Kelly Bedard

thank you for saying what I’ve been thinking since season 2, that Ted has disappeared. It’s been years since he’s been the guy who stole the blue french horn and made it rain, and his decision this week to take someone else’s wedding plans and get married early only proved how far he’s slipped away […]

REVELATION
  Kelly Bedard

I was walking down the street today listening to Title of Show, a slightly obscure contemporary piece of musical theatre. Their song “9 People’s favourite Thing”, my favourite on the soundtrack, got me thinking. If I were a Hollywood showrunner (I can dream can’t I?) I would want to make a show that 10 people […]

On Big Bang Theory, a lonely and depressed Penny hilariously became obsessed with online gaming. While on How I Met Your Mother Ted agreed to move to New Jersey and Robin agreed to move to Japan for a new job. But I swear the episode was actually funny, not just full of depressing revelations that […]

Bad News
  Kelly Bedard

This week’s How I Met Your Mother is bad. It’s not funny, it’s unoriginal, uninspiring and even a little sad. Barney seems to be more annoying than he’s ever been (though his motivation turns out to actually be pretty sweet), Robin’s story is ridiculous and Marshall reaches new lows of pathetic. After such a promising […]

Jeremy and Juliet Darling “the well behaved twins” of Dirty Sexy Money are hilariously exuberant, devilishly selfish and ultimately big hearted. Like all the best sibling characters, Jeremy and Juliet have each others’ backs through thick and thin. But not only are they the characters I most find myself sympathizing with, they are also the […]

HIMYM Returned and I Couldn’t Stop Smiling
  Kelly Bedard

In a charming story line that brought the Ted and Marshall friendship back to top form and their adorable nerdiness to the foreground, they made Stella (Ted’s new fiancee, Sarah Chalke) watch Star Wars(Ted’s favourite movie) for the first time. Not only is it always fun to be reminded that these are not the cool kids, […]

How I Met Your Mother’s season finale
  Kelly Bedard

Ladies and gentlemen, that is how it is done. FRIENDSHIP: Barney can womanize, gamble, cheat and manipulate all he wants and will always remain a sympathetic character because the audience has always known (and he proved in this week’s episode) that he would scale mountains for his friends. and LOVE: Neil Patrick Harris didn’t say […]

Robin Sparkles… Again
  Kelly Bedard

So How I Met Your Mother brought back Robin Sparkles- desperate? Yeah. Effective? well,… yeah. It wasn’t up to the calibre of “slap bet” (the original Robin Sparkles episode) but this week’s HIMYMwas pretty funny. The accents weren’t even slightly accurate and thus simply annoying but the plot was fun, the B story (other characters’ […]

CBS Comedies: a stop and go situation
  Kelly Bedard

This week’s How I Met Your Mother was good, not great. There was some quality Barney, some decent Ted, and some funny Robin. I was happy to see a Marshall-centric episode since he’s been ignored for most of the season but was disappointed to have my suspicion confirmed that he’s become too broad a character… and Lily’s […]

Barney’s stalker search: Legendary!
  Kelly Bedard

If last week’s How I Met Your Motherwas all A story, this week was all B story and neither suffered at all for it. Barney’s quest to find his mystery scorned stalker girl was hilarious. The rest of the cast got some quality screen time in too. There were references to some classic episodes (Ted […]

  Kelly Bedard

Last night’s episode of How I Met Your Mother marked, as predicted, the return of the sweet, determined and hopelessly romantic Ted that we all fell in love with. His 10 week pursuit of and diligently planned 2 minute date with Stella were perhaps some of the best Ted moves since he searched out Victoria […]

How I Re-Met Ted
  Kelly Bedard

How I Met Your Mother returned tonight with the first new post-strike episode. It wasn’t one of their best but it served a very important function. In HIMYM‘s first season I loved Ted. He was the hopelessly romantic, extremely picky, cute, sweet, laid back best friend of a perfect couple who was looking to find […]

  Kelly Bedard

really really funny. nice turnaround of classic trapped in a room episodes like Marshall and Lily in the bathroom waiting for Ted and Victoria to move to the bedroom in season 1 and four of the FRIENDS trapped in the bedroom while Ross and Rachel have their massive “we were on a break” breakup fight. […]

My favourite show currently on the air is (no secret here: How I Met Your Mother). I was, however, disappointed in last night’s third season premier. While still better than most sitcoms out there (see the second half of this post), last night’s HIMYM was not up to their usual standard. After re-watching the entire […]

  Kelly Bedard

This is my appeal to you (not that anyone reads this- if anyone reads this please post a comment so I know you’re there). I have a thing where I can’t jump into a show if I haven’t seen the beginning. I couldn’t return to Lost after I skipped the end of season 1, I […]

Once upon a time there was a multitude of great television encapsulated into succinct 23 minute installments. This was when sitcoms ruled the airways… not in syndication. My TV obsession came in the age of FRIENDS, Will & Grace, Frasier, Sex and the City, That 70s Show and Seinfeld. These days there are only 3 […]
