How I Met Your Mother: The Stinsons

HIMYM: The Stinsons(S04E15) We've waited about three weeks to see this episode, since President Obama decided to inconvenience HIMYM fans by holding his first primetime press conference on the night this was originally supposed to air. Was "The Stinsons" worth the wait? Definitely. And not just because we met Barney's mom.

It was just plain ol' laugh-out-loud funny. And Bays and Thomas were able to explore how Barn's ability to deceive could be used for sentimental reasons as well as self-serving ones. It also gave us a chance to see Ted overact, Marshall call himself the runt of the family, and Lily and Robin hide under coats and loose tops.

Desperate Housewives: What More Do I Need

(S05E07) "Knock it off!" - Gaby to a creepy, clingy and too generous Virginia

Last week
, I mentioned how I thought the arrival of Gail O'Grady, Frances Conroy and Lily Tomlin spiced things up on Wisteria Lane. This week, they definitely brought on new spice because the three storylines got more complex and twisted. Sometimes, TV series push guest stars down our throats for sake of ratings (see Britney Spears on How I Met Your Mother for a recent example). However, this is not the case with the three actresses guesting on Desperate Housewives. Tomlin is especially a delight to see in her role as McCluskey's sister and Conroy, as I've mentioned last week, finally gives the Solises a reason to still get air time.

(S05E06) "When the time comes, an alibi would be nice." - Gaby

Sweeps is a time for closure, new twists, guest stars, and OMG!/WTF? moments. This week's episode of Desperate Housewives, which is the first November Sweeps installment of the series this season, definitely offered us new twists and guest stars thanks to the arrival of Gail O'Grady, Frances Conroy and Lily Tomlin. All three actresses will appear in a few episodes of the series and, as we saw in "There's Always a Woman," will be involved in some important way in the storylines.

Strangest Six Feet Under couples

Rainn WilsonThe characters on Six Feet Under were fascinating to watch, but they often made horrible romantic choices. Even the couples that stood the test of time had their issues. Most of the truly memorable train wrecks didn't last, though. Here's a look back at some of the show's weirdest relationships.

Ruth Fisher and Arthur Martin - Ruth and Arthur's relationship was arguably the most awkward pairing in Six Feet Under history. Apart from the significant age difference, the relationship suffered from a lack of physical intimacy. You can't build a romance on nuzzling and spooning alone; it didn't take long for Ruth to figure that out. Ruth dumped Arthur, and things took a turn for the worse when she suddenly married George Sibley. Arthur showed his jealousy by arguing with George over the origins of the word "formica" and labeling his food. They finally parted ways after the "poo by mail" misunderstanding.

(S03E08) Two words: Jeanne Tripplehorn. Keith's paintball revenge was his finest moment on the show as far as I'm concerned. The Fishers and Diazes played against type and became people of action, if only for a short while. David and Keith settled their differences on the battlefield, Ruth made several uncomfortable moves on Arthur, and Lisa sized up her competition. Petrarch, head lice, and polygamy also came into play.
