Fun Monday Night TV

I was really excited about the return of "Chuck" on NBC on Monday night, and enjoyed the new direction the show is going, with a slightly more capable lead character with a haircut. Why do shows use haircuts to change a character, that seems silly. But the show is still really good, and remarkably funny for a spy show.

The second best thing on Monday night this week was a surprise musical number by Neil Patrick Harris on "How I Met Your Mother". The show itself is getting much much closer to actually meeting the title mother, but this episode will be remembered for NPH's ode to his suits. Here's a link to the episode. It's at about the 18 minute mark if you want to check it out. My favorite is still his appearance on Sesame Street.

The musical number on HIMYM didn't come as a surprise to me. Alyson Hannigan had tweeted awhile back that she invited old pal Joss Whedon to the set while they were shooting a musical number for the 100th episode.

Thanks David. I probably just missed hearing about it, but it was a fun surprise to me. Might be a reason to look into twitter.
