How is Robin Still the Dream Girl with that Haircut?

Two Broke Girls - "And the Break-up Scene"

We’re pretty sure Max is at risk of offing herself, what with her cutting and suicide note jokes this week. Even though this is a lighthearted comedy, you can see the theme coming around where Caroline actually lifts Max’s self-esteem and forces her to try for things. We expect Caroline to make further progress with Max as the series goes on.

There weren’t as many good zingers this time, but we enjoyed the half hour and still like the characters. We will be back next week, even though New Girl and Up All Night are better new comedies than this one. We are a little sick of the girls talking about how poor they are. Show how they are poor. Don't have them keep mentioning it.

How I Met Your Mother - "Ducky Tie"

Only Ted is gay enough to look at Lily’s boobs and think of a butt. We loved the line, “The party in my wife’s shirt is a private affair and I’m the bouncer.” Marshall remains a consistently likeable and funny character through this roller coaster of a show. In reality, the whole plot with Barney competing to touch Lily’s boobs would be really, really creepy. On the show, it was funny, and a way to get Barney to wear a dorky tie for a year. We also liked the reminder of how diabolical Barney is, what with the elaborate psychological plan and everything.

We got to find out what happened with Ted and Victoria. They went to wash her cupcake dishes (Ted’s atonement for cheating), she told him that she was about to get engaged to a German guy, they kissed, and she left. But before she left, Victoria told Ted that she thinks he and Barney are being weird always hanging out with Robin. They are hanging out as friends, but it’s not really working, and that’s why Ted’s relationships haven’t worked out. Ted denies this, but future Ted confirmed Victoria was right about them, “they just didn’t know it yet.”

Victoria just changed this game, only it’s like in Monopoly where you land on the wrong spot and have to go to jail. Somehow we are back to where this show was years ago. This must be yet another way to stall meeting the mother. We are pretty sure that Barney is going to get Robin. And yet, there is speculation that Victoria just meant that Robin is too involved in his life, scaring away all the ladies or something. They do live together, after all.

We think that Victoria meant that Ted needs to stop being hung up on Robin so that he’s open and ready to meet the mother. Maybe he holds her in a high regard to the point that his other dates aren’t comparable to his “dream girl.” We hope it’s something like that, because if Ted actually tries to get Robin back and this turns into yet another love triangle, we are going to be annoyed. Hopefully this is going to a place that takes us forward, not backward.
