The Epic of Mosby
Finally I am mostly caught up on How I Met Your Mother which means (Spoilers) that I have now met the mother. I mean no disrespect to the woman portraying her, or to the creators of a show I adore, but after 8 years of teasing us and toying with us she really should have been revealed by riding into frame on the back of a velociraptor with that damn yellow umbrella in one hand and a light saber in the other, picked Ted up and then ridden off to claim the iron throne. Whereupon Mr. Mosby’s nickname would evolve to “Teddy Westeros”
Or something like that.

A Few Scattered Thoughts On Buffy The Vampire Slayer My 3rd Time Through
1: That is a dumbass curse those gypsies put on Angel. If he feels one moment of happiness he goes right back to being the devil murder machine that we were pissed off at in the first place? So he can go happily murder more folk like he did your clan?
How about if he feels one moment of happiness he explodes into smoke and teeth? Or he becomes a fluffy bunny. Or has to get a job at Walgreen’s. Or just about anything else.
1A: “Gypsy” may be a racially insensitive word but I honestly can’t keep up.
2: Hell has a dojo, but it’s a pretty shitty dojo. Every time a high school kid comes back as a vampire he or she knows karate, unfailingly, but it’s shit karate. Even Xander can usually kick their ass if need be. Vampires wouldd be better off training to be snipers, I feel. A slayer’s defense against a bullet fired from a mile and a half away is slender.
2A: I’m glad nobody shot Buffy.
3: I still heart this show SO HARD.
We’ve come to a point with the new movie where reality gets to do a pass at the script and I am told things like “We can’t hit Barry with dozens of porcelain dolls. Those things are expensive.” and “The SAG requirements for endangering a child’s life are absurd and unaffordable.”
A man falls to the ground in a crowded restaurant. Frantic, one of his companions shouts, “He’s dying! There’s only one known cure. Does anyone know the fast bit from Blues Traveler’s “Hook”?”
Confidently I raise my hand. “Let’s do this.”
