Monday Night Comedy o' Fun!!!!  
My two favorite comedies tonight! WHEEEEEEEEE!!!

Hee! That was so funny. I do love the Sheldon/Penny dynamic, and Sheldon, period, but honestly? Just overall, this show makes me laugh so much, so often, so hard. DAMN FUNNY! I mean, all of it, every moment, just hysterical.

Specific things I liked --

- Sheldon looking back at the white board after the guys left acknowledging that it *was* their only option.

- Sheldon informing Penny that Leonard went to the movies without him ... but it was his only option.

- Sheldon explaining that his money was guarded by snakes.

- Sheldon smiling when Penny was taking the money. Awwww!

- Penny taking the money, putting it back, taking more, putting it back, taking it back, getting more.

- Sheldon's talk of his social interaction diary.

- Penny telling Leonard if he moved in, she couldn't keep her hands off of him, and then her glee when she said: "See, and you thought my acting lessons weren't paying off!"

- Leonard invoking Frodo, Samwise, Merry and Pippin and Sheldon calmly informing him that things didn't go so well for them.

- Leonard pointing out that he was wearing cargo shorts under his pants.

- Sheldon's ode to Leonard.

- Penny's hair looked gorgeous in tonight's episode.

All in all, just HYSTERICAL!!! Love this show.

HIMYM -- Eh, not so funny tonight. It had some really funny moments, and there were a few cute Barney/Robin moments, but after the last couple of brilliant episodes (and the hilarity of TBBT), it was a tad let-downish. Still, a let-down of a HIMYM episode is still pretty damn funny, so I won't grouse.

Stuff I did love ...

- Barney getting down to propose to Robin with no one paying attention after Marshall said she could marry a US citizen, and then quietly getting up (with no one noticing) when he said it wouldn't happen in time.

- Using the hot-dog eating contest to show off Alyson's baby bump.

- The long, tender, head-cupping hug between Barney and Robin at the end.

- No one coming to Dr. X's "happenings."

Aww, I loved HIMYM -- I thought it was a great use of the ensemble! Everyone had their own storylines, and they intertwined (like "Intervention") vs. the Marshall and Robin SL, or the Ted and Barney SL. I love the group stuff. :)

Barney's points about corporate resumes for men vs. women were ridiculously spot-on, as well...I laughed and agreed with him. ;p

(Totally OT, but "Some Hearts" came up on my iPod this morning, and you're totally right -- perfect song for Nine/Rose, aww. :D )

I thought the whole 'dancer's hip' storyline was kinda stupid and I don't normally say that about HIMYM. The scene in the bar when Marshall was confessing to Lily was just, well, stupid. That was my big issue with it.

Yes, "Some Hearts" TOTALLY fits them. It's awesome!!!!

Yes, those were definitely highlights. I liked the audition for lottery girl too because the two guys discussing her as so typical of lame auditions everywhere. Hee. I thought it was a good episode and would have loved to see Marshall dance.

It *was* a good episode; it's just that the last couple of episodes were BRILLIANT! And Big Bang Theory was absolutely hilarious and I watched it right before HIMYM. But still, yeah, it was a good episode.
