Robin Sparkles Returns Tonight On HIMYM, Chuck With Summer Glau, Survivor, & Storm Chasers - November 15, 2010
Missing Robin Sparkles on How I Met Your Mother? Well, tonight is your night. Robin Sparkles will return in tonight's episode on CBS. This time it appears that we'll be seeing her in an educational special that went wrong. The Robin Sparkles story has been one of those things with this show that you can't get enough of and the producers do a great job of giving you a taste of it but not overdoing it to where you're tired of it. That goes along with how well they do with bringing back the slap bet every so often as well. They drop these little teases about Robin's pop star past every so often and then we get the pay off. It has brought a lot of fun cameos as well with the music videos that have been produced which have included Alan Thicke and James Van der beek. We've been to the mall and then to the beach with sand castles. Where will Robin Sparkles take us this time?
Chuck has a big guest star tonight as Summer Glau will be appearing on the show. That will of course be on NBC. If you haven't seen Chuck this season, it has been great and you need to check it out.
Just wanted to touch on a couple of other shows as well since I haven't had time to talk about them. I'll start with Survivor. Well, Marty's number was finally up and he is gone. I can't say I'm surprised. I was surprised to hear him criticizing Chase's game as much as he was. All I could think was are you really in a position to be criticizing someone else's game right now when you're barely hanging on? Speaking of barely hanging on, what about Naonka? Actually, I'm wondering if she is barely hanging on. She is either going to be someone that is voted off very soon or going to be kept around till the end because people think they can win against her. Her social game is really bad. It's not Russell level kind of bad but it's not far off. You can't keep going off on people that you expect to vote for you to win a million dollars. I do realize that this game messes with people and sometimes brings out the best in people but also the worst in people.
On to last week's Storm Chasers. What a day for the TWISTEX team. That was awesome!! They landed their probe right in the middle of that massive tornado. I was so happy to see them have such great success. It doesn't sound like they are done either with their great success after hearing rumblings of the next episode or so. The TIV team had a rough day trying to push on without Matt. Bad decision making when the TIV team decided to make some really bad passing judgments on the opposite side of the road despite upcoming hills. Lots of chasers were having frustration that day cause there were so many people out trying to chase the storm. Traffic was just horrible. I did go to You Tube and find that video that was shown of the TIV crew driving up the hill in the wrong lane. Yeah, it looked really bad on them and Sean knew at the time that it was a bad idea. The driver took the blame for it and they'll learn from it. Unfortunately, Sean has to meet with Josh who is not happy about the video that was shown of them. Josh is threatening to cut the funding for Sean's movie over the incident. The TVN crew is still having difficulties with them seemingly being on separate agendas. Reed has what he is wanting to do with getting more scientific data while Joel and Chris are more into just wanting to chase.
