In The House

  • The Monologue:
    • As soon as Elizabeth Edwards dies, I'm going to tell John what a douche he is. Nah, no use waiting.
    • The Colts run defense is as bad as ever. I haven't seen a defense this bad against runs since that Pepto Bismol I took the last time I was in Mexico.
    • Lamar Odom is going to marry Khloe Kardashian on Sunday. Lamar Odom has most recently become famous for his obsession with candy. Obviously his marriage to Khloe, the least attractive Kardashian sister, is a total case of the Charleston Chew goggles.
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • I don't know what to say about the season premiere of House. This wasn't just different from the usual formula; it might as well have been an entirely different show that guest-starred Greg House. I imagine there will be some "jump the shark" reviews, but I think I get why they did it. Going into its sixth season, if you want to significantly change House's demeanor, you can't just do it with five minutes of explanation. He's faked too many changes for them to do that. Instead, they devote a full two hours to essentially a House movie and they can build off of that in the coming season.
    • I do know what to say about the season premiere of How I Met Your Mother. Ugh. Suspension of disbelief is one thing, but I shouldn't have to keep asking questions aloud regarding why certain things (the professor not showing up, Barney going to the Rangers game when he was hanging out with Ted and Marshall) were happening.
    • Jon Gruden's great. He said tonight that the goal of Miami's wildcat offense is to "not get negative yards". Great insight, coach!
    • I need to watch Curb again. That episode was freaking hilarious.
  • Random Music Video:
    • In light of House's roommate in tonight's episode, here's his performance at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade last year. Good stuff.
