After a sudden attack of kidney stones, followed by severe sickness, I'm back to my old self. To celebrate, I take a look at How I Met Your Mother's third episode from the first season, "Sweet Taste Of Liberty". Ted just wants to hang out with his regular friends at his regular bar, but Barney's got other plans. The fun becomes "legendary" when the two guys spontaneously board a plane to Philadelphia.
Meanwhile, back at the bar, Robin and Lily try to spend some time together. When random guys start hitting on Robin, Lily is ultimately ignored. At Marshall's request, she pockets her engagement ring. In this episode, it's all about trust, adventure and the desire to lick things. This was recorded very late at night, so by the end of it, I'm very tired and a bit incoherent. As per usual, I'll do a countdown and tell you when to start the show on your DVD.

The Sofa Dogs team would like to wish writer/director Joss Whedon, a happy birthday. He turns 43.

What do you do when there are no new Lost episodes to review? Rehash the ones you've already seen of course! With that in mind, the three of us embark on a Greatest Hits tour of Season 3, picking our many highlights across a range of categories and awarding one or two wooden spoons to break up the gushing.
Note: The Stu and Gary half of this episode was recorded around a week before the Stu and John half, and in an unprecedented turn of bad luck, 12 planes flew over Stu's house throughout the hour. Most of them were easily edited out, but one or two low rumbles survive.

It wouldn't be a true end to the season without tantalising DVD info being dangled in front of us rabid fans, would it? Unfortunately, this year's release has an awfully distant December 11th street date attached to it :(

No. More. Lost. Till. 2008.
Despite their anguish, Stu and Gary manage to compose themselves long enough to record a farewell podcast for the final episode, Through the Looking Glass. Even though the finale was a double-length episode, we somehow trimmed this review down to only a few minutes longer than The Man Behind the Curtain podcast. How? Probably by missing out lots of crucial discussion points, but hey, we're still in shock/denial/grief here okay?
