It should come as no surprise that leading up to November Sweeps, television is finally starting to kick it up a notch.
Last night’s installment of HEROES was a return to form. Bringing back a surprisingly dangerous HRG, a predictably evil Sylar and an ending so jaw-dropping this TV Addict thought he had teleported back to last season. What lead to 93% of the world being wiped out? Are the remaining 7% all super-powered? Whatever the answer, of one thing we’re sure. HEROES finally managed to do something its failed to do all season long. Get us psyched for next Monday at 9PM.
Next up, the always dependable HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER. This week, television’s heir apparent go-to-office-bad-guy, also known as special guest star John Cho successfully wooed Marshall to forgo his dream of environmental law in order to work for an evil corporate law firm. Even funnier than Marshall’s morning walk of shame [after a night of drunken debauchery with Cho] was Ted’s realization that he shares the same name with a porn star. His accidental interview over the phone for an adult magazine… hilarious. Even funnier, was the fact that the adult video Ted Mosby only named himself ‘Ted Mosby’ as an homage to Ted after Ted saved him from a bunch of bullies in high school. All of which naturally begs the question. Have you ever ‘googled’ your name only to discover that you share the same name with an Adult Video Star. If so, let us know!
And finally, the funniest line of the night goes to [brace yourself] a Chuck Lorre sitcom [honestly, I never thought I’d utter those words]. THE BIG BANG THEORY continues to delight. Mostly thanks to the unintentional hilarity of Sheldon. His Halloween costume — brilliant. Funnier still his line delivery commenting on the reactions to his costume which is actually a visual representation of the Doppler Effect, “Given the reaction to my costume this party is a scathing indictment of the American education system.” When Penny’s ex-boyfriend asks Sheldon if he’s a Zebra, Sheldon replies, “Yet another child left behind.” Trust us, hilarious. Tune in next week, Monday at 8:30PM on CBS.
