This post comes to you from the land of shallowness, aka The Magical Realm of HIMYM Awesomeness*: in a bit of Dr. Horrible withdrawal, I've been re-watching How I Met Your Mother. I get my NPH fix as well as a bit of Jossiana (Alyson Hannigan, Amy Acker, Morena Baccarin,Tom Lenk and Alexis Denisof. Am I missing anyone?) Anyway, I'm not usually a sitcom kind of girl, but HIMYM is surprisingly sharp and smart and not afraid to throw the '-com' bit under the bus if it serves the story best to focus on the 'sit-.'

So. With no spoilers for anyone who may, after my brilliant analytical dissection of modern televised comedic format, choose to watch the entirety of the series thus far, let me say that the last two episodes of season two make me cry. A lot. A ridiculous lot, in fact. I mean, from the pilot episode you know a certain thing with a certain certainty. And yet having this certainty made decidedly certain forty or so episodes in makes me weep tears both bitter and sweet.

In marginally less lame news, Handsome Tom continues handsome. And snuggly. I so wish every last one of you could meet him. He'd welcome the skritches. Gracious, but he's a social kitty.

*The pilot episode is unevenly paced. The 'audience laughter' takes a bit of getting used to. That being said, I have to admit that I never expected a half-hour sitcom to be quite this good. In large part it's the cast. In other large part, it's the writing. Two large parts. That's what she said.
I feel: rushed*flrgle*

I have loved that show from the beginning. Great cast. Great writing. So much fun.

I keep meaning to watch more of that! I saw about half the first season and then scattered episodes, and it's always even funnier than remembered.

It's surprisingly wonderful. As is, I must say, your icon. Sweet!

The Dr Horrible love prompted me to find and watch this show - I'm halfway through Season 1, and I love it a lot. :) *is now apprehensive for the end of Season 2*

Dr. Horrible
Hi, tis I your sister, and yes it is almost 3 am, but, thanks to you, I had to come home and watch Dr. Horrible AGAIN!!! Thanks for the new obsession. Really, thanks. Justice says thanks tons, cause he gets to go out more and eat more since I am up for this long (he looks so totally badass in his pirate collar!)
Love you!

I, too, have adored HIMYM from day one. I wanted everyone to see the sword episode, too - that was brilliant, lol...besides the whole series being brilliant!

And, as your husband already knows, I listened to my temporary Dr. Horrible soundtrack (as I can't wait until I can buy the real one) ALL the way up to Avhi's and most of the way home. Over and over and over and over. And over. Can't. Help. it.

Oh - and there are ring tones: http://audiko.net/ringtone/Dr+Horrible/en.html
