The episode opened with Sheldon referencing his nipples and closed with him talking about Howard’s penis. Yes, you read that right. Sheldon Cooper is a wild man! His animal instincts first kick in when Howard shares the news that he’s the owner of a new car and new parking space. His spot technically belongs to Sheldon so he throws a hissy fit and demands its return. Never mind the fact that Sheldon doesn’t own a car or know how to drive. “I’m not using my nipples either, why don’t they reassign those?” he asks when Howard suggests the university reassigned the parking spot because Sheldon left it unoccupied. After a call to the president of the university proves to be futile, he challenges Wolowitz at his own game. Sheldon steals his Iron Man helmet (a limited edition collectible!) and wears it casually in the office to prove that he’s making use out of it. Howard then steals his most prized possession, his doctorate, only to hear Sheldon retort, “Go ahead. It’s the only doctorate you’ll ever get.” READ FULL STORY »

There’s hope for us all! Elizabeth Lemon and Criss Chros finally tied the knot. If you didn’t even know they were engaged, don’t worry. The whole thing—engagement to “I Do’s”—happened in the course of “Mazel Tov, Dummies!” Here’s how it all went down: Liz and Criss ran into
mayhem Dennis Duffy and discovered that he was married. (Who would marry Dennis? Megan, maiden name Duffy—hopefully no relation. That’s who.) Dennis also happened to have an adopted son named Black Dennis. And that was just too much for Liz to take. READ FULL STORY »
Last night’s Supernatural was, in one word, bizarre. In two words? Bizarre and fantastic.
The episode centered around Sam, Dean and new hunter Cas looking into a series of strange deaths in which the victims’ deaths were seemingly ripped right out of a classic cartoon — a man’s heart exploded out of his chest, someone was killed by an anvil, etc. But, surprisingly, as far as cases go, this one didn’t have too many twists and turns.
The trio was fairly quick to zero in on their father’s former friend Fred Jones, an elderly psychokinetic who was now catatonic and living in a retirement home. They realized that the man was messing with reality and creating a “bubble of weird” that would create these strange scenarios around him. (Note that not all of the strange happenings were deadly. See: exploding cake.) READ FULL STORY »

New Girl is back, y’all. It wasn’t just an episode, it was an epic-sode. I know it’s been a good night when there are too many hilarious potential recap titles. “The Downstairs Girl-Cookie” was an early favorite, as was “The Vagina Helen Mirren.” Then came “Give My Nipples a Purpose!” and “The Sound of An Empty Uterus.” After that, “Vagenius,” “Not a Finisher,” and “Procrastination at the Zoo,” as well as the more culturally inclined “Becoming Ernest Hemingway” and “Losing Nemo,” plus an title by extrapolation “Rhythm Is Gonna Get You,” which emerged in the episode’s final minutes. But the above Schmidt-ism won out for its universality. Fair warning: Dotables will be considerable this week.
And why do I say the show’s “back”? Well, it’s not that the last couple of episodes have been bad, per se, but they were definitely cresting at a 7.5 or so on the comedy scale. (This show typically hums along at a 9 or 10.) With the return of a Jess who feels like she needs to really do something (other than be adorable), not to mention the payoff of all Nick’s inane shout-outs to his zombie novel and the prominence of Schmidt’s sexual shenanigans (with 100 percent more goggles, a highlights-of-India worthy bit of improv by Max Greenfield, and, heck, a little poignancy), I dare say last night was a — if not the – series high.
'RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race' season finale: The first inductee into the 'Drag Race' Hall of Fame is...
Near the end of last night’s season finale of RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race, host and show namesake RuPaul was really trying to sell the idea that any of the four remaining queens — Chad Michaels, Shannel, Raven, and Jujubee — could take home the crown. “I feel like my four favorite actresses,” Ru said, just before silencing her fellow judges and bringing the contestants back for some decisions, “are up for the same award.”
It was a lovely sentiment from the ever-fair and all-queen-loving RuPaul, but the fact of the matter that this final leg of the competition was only really between three queens — and, as the judges’ thoughts on the final three-pronged challenge were metered out, it became clear that it was only really between two.
I’m not even gonna really put a spoiler alert on this one: Shannel was never really in this competition at the end. She bombed her comedy show, her drag was a mess, and she was deluded — it was clear from the outset of last night’s hour that she wasn’t going to be named as the much-coveted first inductee into the Drag Race Hall of Fame. You might be able to guess who was the other weak link. (Her name rhymes with: smujubee.)
“You are all my legendary children, but there’s room for just one inductee to the Drag Race Hall of Fame,” Ru told the ladies, yes again assuring them they were all great, which isn’t technically wrong but only applied to two weeks. And then, after the lip-sync-for-your-life portion of the evening — featuring the right two queens, but what could be slugged a controversial winner — Ru uttered the words we were all dying to hear: “The first inductee into the Drag Race Hall of Fame is…”
Joe Manganiello is extremely attractive.
That seemed to be the central idea of Monday night’s How I Met Your Mother, the second in Manganiello’s two-parter that had Marshall’s law firm suing a pharmaceutical company being defended by Marshall’s one-time law school bro, Brad.
While I’m not entirely sure anything can top last year’s dryer turkey, the news that Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner would guest as Jess’s parents on this year’s Very Special Episode of New Girl was certainly enough to pique my interest. Put two of the most influential people in Christopher Guest’s life on a show that involves a lot of improv hilarity, add in The Daily Show‘s Rob Riggle as Schmidt’s beer-swilling cousin, and we couldn’t lose, right?
The episode basically took the form that of Friends‘ “The One With The Two Parties” episode, with Jess planning an elaborate Thanksgiving day scheme so her rancorously divorced parents wouldn’t have to spend even a second together. Nick explained her parents to the roommates: Her mom was the “perky” one (which, on a Jess scale means mom’s chirp must go to 11), and her dad… well, let’s just say she told Nick, “You’re going to love my dad, he’s so unhappy.” READ FULL STORY »
Well, wasn’t that just about the craziest hour of RuPaul’s Drag Race ever? And, no, despite the photograph of Elvira here, it wasn’t her contribution as a guest judge (alongside Bridesmaids star Wendi McLendon-Covey) that sent the second-to-last hour of All Stars over the edge. No, that could be, first and mostly, attributed to the crazy main challenge of the penultimate hour, which found the four remaining queens — Chad Michaels and Shannel, or “Shad”; and Raven and Jujubee, or “Rujubee” — creating their own brand of superheros.
Actually, taking into account the fact that the Entertainment Weekly brand tries to be family friendly (well, we try to be sometimes), I can’t even really type out the superhero storyline that Chad and Shannel put together. Maybe I’m getting cranky in my old age, but it had to do with vaginal rejuvenation and lactation. Actually, Elvira did have a good quip that summed up the whole presentation that “Shad” put on with their superheroes: “It was like a trip to the gyno’s office for me.” Well put!
The real crazy of the evening, though, came during the lip-sync-for-your-life portion of the evening. Ru had announced early in the episode that one of the teams was going to be on the bottom and would have to lip-sync against one another. But who knew that the pending situation would create one of the most dramatic moments of Drag Race history. The two queens that had to lip-sync against each other were…
And here we thought that Joe Manganiello’s return was the only reason to be excited for tonight’s episode.
“The Stamp Tramp” featured a potentially life-altering moment for Marshall and a funny, sweet Ted/Lily subplot. But the scene that’s really going to get fans talking is the last one of the episode, featuring Robin and Barney — who has gone from declaring his “fake” love for Robin to kissing her passionately after a drunken night at a strip club.
While the couple’s lip lock certainly wasn’t unexpected — if these two are going to get married this season, they’ll have to stop dancing around each other sometime soon, right? — it was a little surprising that it served as the culmination of such a silly storyline. Robin spent the episode serving as Barney’s “strip club agent,” trying to find a go-to topless joint to replace Quinn’s tainted stomping grounds. Then again, How I Met Your Mother is no stranger to last-minute curveballs; remember “Bad News”? (Warning: Do not read if the thought of our Marshmallow in pain gets you feeling teary.)
