About Allison Chin

Currently a university student, who loves watching the lives and stories of fictional characters unfold through the medium of television on a weekly basis. Although, some may say I watch a little too much TV and care a little too much about the characters. Leading me to the site, No White Noise, the perfect way for me to write about and share my thoughts and opinions of the lives of my favorite fictional people, through my recaps and reviews. Besides TV, I also enjoy writing, music, photography, design; and hope to one-day work in the television and media industry. Some of my favorite shows, of the moment include: Suits, Pretty Little Liars, New Girl, Awkward, The Vampire Diaries, Revenge, Criminal Minds and Happy Endings; just to name a few. However my all time favorite shows would have to be; Friends, House, and The Big Bang Theory, but I’m sure this list will continue to expand.

How I Met Your Mother ‘Something New’ review: The Mother is finally revealed

A Recaps By

The season 8 finale of How I Met Your Mother ended with one of the biggest reveals in television history, The Mother. However, the show had three main stories running before we got to the reveal, and unfortunately the characters were split up from each other for the entirety of the show, but worked well to create a nice foundation for the final season.

How I Met Your Mother ‘Something Old’ recap: Little things, big meaning

How I Met Your Mother has had pretty average episodes as of late, and I wasn’t expecting this one to be any different, but I was very wrong. I actually loved the entire episode from beginning to end. Although I know this won’t be the consensus among most viewers because it brought back focus onto the Ted-Robin relationship, which will certainly carry over into the season finale, I liked what this episode provided in way of story; it showed the fears Ted is having over Lily and Marshall moving to Italy and Robin’s doubts about marrying Barney.

How I Met Your Mother ‘Bro Mitzvah’ recap

The Bro Mitzvah

After last week’s solid episode featuring new plot developments — Lily and Marshall moving to Rome and Ted and Barney’s heated confrontation — I was really disappointed with this week’s episode of How I Met Your Mother in terms of its contribution to the overall plot, which failed to show the repercussions of the decision previously made by these characters.

How I Met Your Mother ‘Romeward Bound’ recap

After weeks of interesting storylines and some much needed character development, I have to say that this episode was a disappointment, mostly due to Barney’s ignorance towards his impending nuptials. Although I have to say, I liked the overall theme of dealing (or not dealing) with one’s own insecurities, which added something to an otherwise lackluster episode.

How I Met Your Mother ‘TIme Travelers’ review: 45 days until we meet The Mother

A Recaps By
The Time Travelers

This episode has to be my favorite of the season; it had many throwbacks to past HIMYM stories and provided an amazing story for Ted.

Although I have to admit that I wasn’t entirely sure it was going to be as good has it was from the beginning of the episode, with all the time travelers and whole Marshall vs.

Since the mid-season finale I have been really disappointed in the episodes as of late. However this episode brought back everything that made HIMYM an amazing show, filled with both funny and sweet moments. Making this one of my favorite episodes of the season and has definitely restoring my faith in the show going forward.

The latest episode of HIMYM marks the end of this chapter in everyone’s life, especially Ted and realizes that he is ready to meet “the one”. We are now in the home stretch of this season and closer to the one answer we have all been waiting to be answered; “who is the mother”.

How I Met Your Mother ‘The Ashtray’ review: The Captain returns

So if you have yet to watch this week’s episode of HIMYM, my advice for you would be to skip the first half. It was slow, repetitive and tried to force the jokes upon the audiences, which is never a good sign, especially at the beginning of any episode. The main story that took place over the first part of the episode was the Captain’s return (Zoey’s ex-husband).

How I Met Your Mother ‘Bad Crazy’ review

This episode can be perfectly summed up in the title, “Bad Crazy”. After last week’s episode I wasn’t expecting much from this one because I expected it to be a dragged out continuation of just another one of Ted’s girlfriends. I have to say he has dated so many women that these storylines can get a bit boring.

How I Met Your Mother ‘Ring Up’ review: How I Met Barney’s Sister

This week’s episode of  was one that I was waiting to watch because it involved the infamous “Carly,” Barney’s sister whom everyone suspected to be the mother, until now. Unfortunately I have to say that I was disappointed with this episode, although I liked the comedy bits with Ted, Barney and his sister I found the rest of this episode to be pretty bland and a bit of an emotional disconnect from last week.
