Robots vs. Wrestlers

I just stumbled across a couple episodes of “How I Met Your Mother” last night, and I really have to ask: Why didn’t anyone tell me that Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan, Jason Segel, and Bob Saget have been on a sitcom together for the last five years? And that stuff like this happens in it?:

After watching two episodes, I’m convinced I’ve found a worthy successor to fill that void in my life once held by “The Drew Carey Show.”

Ironically, the reason I tuned in last night was to check out “The Big Bang Theory” on a recommendation – and it really sucked in comparison (it’s basically “Two and a Half Men” except with nerds.) But I will give it credit: it has a really kick-ass theme song.

    Okay, so…

    1) Alexis Denisof has a guest appearance in three episodes of HIMYM. This makes it undeniably awesome in so very many ways.

    2) Actually, BBT is ridiculously good. Maybe you have to watch it from the start (I did, and I’m partway through the second season), but I agree with just about everything Sheldon says ever.

    Well, the episode of BBT I watched seemed like a non-stop stream of bad nerd jokes. Almost as if the writers got all their reference material from a “Revenge of the Nerds” marathon. I was at least hoping for some xkcd edge, given the subject matter.

    Hmmm… but then again, it already has your seal of approval. That is one of the most important seals something can have. I must have missed something.

    Naw, you didn’t miss nothing. It really is a stream of bad nerd jokes. Here’s the show:

    Sheldon: You cannot do that, that goes against what I feel.
    Main guy: This happens all the time, sorry hot girl, I love you I love you please marry me right now god dammit.
    That other white guy: Hey hot girl, how about you come and be a hot girl with me?
    Hot girl: No thank you, I barely tolerate you people yet I insist on hanging out with you.
    Indian guy: *I cannot talk because of a stupid plot device*
    Sheldon: Fermats last theorem!
    Hot girl: I don’t get it.
    They Might Be Giants: *plays theme song*

    There we go.
