Last week How I Met Your Mother returned with its new season and once again dangled the mother in front of the audience without revealing much more about her. Will we meet her in the season (series?) finale? At that point will it even matter? Personally I’d like to see Ted’s relationship with the mother take off and grow. If we only get a minute with the mother it will feel like such a copout. Anyhow, for a first time in the show’s history all of the characters are paired up in relationships with three of them doomed for failure. It should be a fun ride seeing how over the course of the season said relationships crash and burn.

Official Description, “The Pre-Nup”: Barney’s extensive and comprehensive prenup leads the guys to put forth their own relationship principles, which their significant others do not find agreeable. Meanwhile, an incensed Quinn responds with her own prenup.

The episode airs at 8pm on CBS, followed by the new series Partners. What else do you have to look forward to tonight?

I know I’ve been talking about How I Met Your Mother a lot lately, but the show has been on its game week after week. The sitcom has a great balance of funny and touching real life moments with a cast that I want to be friends with. Tonight’s episode airs at 8pm on CBS; “Ted and Barney make a life-altering decision; and Robin tries to talk Lily and Marshall out of moving to Long Island.” It’ll be nice to see some action on my old stomping grounds, Long Island. I’ve said for a long time that I’d love to see the show shift focus from the City to Long Island. I can picture the cast and show growing into a more traditional sitcom and could this be a hint that they are moving in that direction?

Hey everyone, sorry for the slowing down of updates lately, but we’ve had some Internet connection issues we’ll we have been traveling. Things should stabilize soon (…hopefully). In the meantime, here is an all new Pit!

After a pretty epic Wrestlemania match, Edge shocked WWE fans by retiring. Taken out of the game by a reoccurring injury that has been getting worse with every match. The fan favorite has had a pretty awesome career and if he is being forced to retire, at least it is after an impressive last match.  Hopefully he stays with company and on camera as a GM or announcer. But there are a ton of roles he could ultimately take on, including as a trainer, road agent, manager, etc. Whatever he decides to do, we wish him all the best and thank him for years of entertainment!

Scream 4 came out this past weekend and I can’t express how happy I am to have a horror movie that is not torture porn in theaters. I’m a big fan of the series and Ghostface, and to see them on the big screen after so many years just felt great. Big props to Wes Craven, Kevin Williamson and everyone involved for delivering an entertaining thrill ride. Finally, a worthy end to the series.

Out of all of Neil Gaiman’s works, American Gods wouldn’t by my first choice to get adapted for TV, but regardless it is on its way to becoming a fantasy series for HBO. Gaiman is working with Oscar-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson to bring the series to life. Sadly, there is no new word about a Sandman series coming at us anytime soon. Maybe if Gods does well enough?

After taking American Wedding off, Chris Klein will be returning for the next theatrical American Pie flick, American Reunion. He joins Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott, Eugene Levy and Alyson Hannigan, who have all signed on to return. The franchise has been releasing a steady stream of American Pie Presents… titles straight to DVD, but this is the first sequel to go the theater route since Wedding in 2003. I can’t wait to see the gang get back together.

How I Met Your Mother

Tonight at 8pm on CBS is the return of Slapsgiving!  How I Met Your Mother celebrates Thanksgiving with the return of the “Slap Bet” and Chris Elliot guest stars as Lily’s estranged father. After it as a new episode of Accidentally on Purpose, but I think I’d rather turn on my TIVO afterwards and check out the new Heroes., which is also having a Thanksgiving themed episode.

No more remakes, leave Buffy and Aliens alone

Not once, but twice this week I’ve been pissed off so much that I haven’t felt like writing about movies or the movie business.  Earlier this week came a report that Roy Lee and Doug Davison of Vertigo Entertainment are working with Fran and Kaz Rubel on a remake/relaunch of Buffy the Vampire Slayer without the input of creator Joss Whedon. Now there is a report that Fox is going forward with a remake of Alien. Seriously, why?

I enjoyed the original Buffy movie, but was completely blown away by the television show. Like many fans, I’ve followed the characters I love into the comics and will continue to follow them into the future. A future we all hoped might include a feature film. Now we get word that a feature is in the works. A feature without Joss Whedon? Without Sarah Michelle Gellar? Without David Boreanaz? No James Marsters? Alyson Hannigan? Anthony Head?  Buffy is nothing without the world Joss created. If they want to go ahead and make a movie about a vampire slayer, than go ahead, why in the world would they want to piss off a fan base and call it Buffy the Vampire Slayer when it isn’t. Worse yet, when that movie tanks, it will hurt… or kill… our chances of ever seeing a REAL Buffy movie.

20th Century Fox, the franchise killer, is going to remake Alien. Ridley Scott’s original sci-fi horror film is near perfect and was followed by one of the best action sci-fi films of all time, James Cameron’s Aliens. Do they think they can top those two films?  Anything they come up with to remake this franchise will be a waste of time and as craptastic as Fox’s recent Alien vs Predator films. I really wish that Fox would stop wasting our time and stop pissing on beloved movies.

How I Met Your Mother

Tonight at 8:30pm on CBS is an all new How I Met Your Mother. On tonight’s episode, Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) inexplicably leaves the gang’s local hangout, which leads the group to believe that he has a girlfriend. I’m pretty sure that the girlfriend thing is really a red herring and the truth is that his parents are in town. And I for one am excited to meet the Stinsons!

Tonight on CBS the 4th season of “How I Met Your Mother” begins. The premiere episode continues from last season’s cliffhanger, which saw Ted (Josh Radnor) propose to Stella (Sarah Chalke), will she end up being the show’s Mother? I think so. We’ll get closer to the answer tonight at 8:30pm. If you need a little refresher for last season, you can watch CBS’ recap here.
