    Default The Official "How I Met Your Mother" Thread

    I've been a fan of a show for over a year now - watched first 2 seasons on re-runs and been following season 3 religiously. Today's the premiere of season 4, and while I've been reading Barney's blog on CBS website, I came across this!



    Read the multiple choice question 2! Haha, not only it's a great show but now I know the writers are also fans of Van Halen.

    Haha, I'll use mine to de-sypher

    You are claiming to be the session drummer for Van Halen. Who could NOT be your lead singer?

    a. David Lee Roth
    b. Gary Cherone
    c. Sammy Hagar
    d. Barney Stinson

    Not only it's *very* funny, it's also one of a few shows (really, the only one I know) that has a genuine laugh track. On a first watch of an episode I hardly even notice them coz they drown in my own roar of laughter, and on the second/third/etc watch I start noticing when male laughters prevail, when it's somebody getting a joke way more than others, all that stuff.

    The new episode was great btw. I suppose they're drifting more into drama than comedy at this point, what with all Barney being in love with Robin, but it's awesome just as much.

    Love this show from the beginning, but I think they've "jumped the shark" with the Barney/Robin thing. Barney as a skirt chaser is the funniest part of the show, they shouldn't mess with it.

    They did it out of the emergency. After Todd & Thomas went off of the writers' strike, they had to write 9 remaining episodes in a hurry (which they deserve kudos for from me. Otherwise it would have been like Smallville - one episode every other month, not even finishing the proper number of episodes). They've also said that they had "Barney & Robin" theme in mind for a while, and they decided to use this card to get back on schedule.

    Barney chasing chicks is an awesome part of the show, but also his realization he actually had feelings for Robin is even more hilarious. Remember the World Greatest Couple in season 2, where Lilly moves in with Barney, and they end up spending a night in bed on Friday NOT having sex, after watching Letterman? And then in Zip Zip Zip episode where Robin replaces Ted as a "bro" and goes out to play Laser tag with Barney? They've been hinting that he has the 'other'/boyfriend-ish side to him for quite awhile.

    Plus, it's Marshall & Lilly that highlight the show for me. I totally love Allyson Hannigan, and Marshall - well I've not seen a character like him ever before. And now he's jobless

    I hear what you're saying. It's just got too much of the Ross/Rachel and Sam/Diane theme to it. It's already been done too many times on different shows to seem fresh.

    Marshall spying while they watched Star Wars was pretty funny.

    I have actually used the "Have you met Ted" line on a couple of shy friends. Funny show. The big bang theory is another good one.

    Okay, so while the "not that burger" episode was kinda lame, and the "moving to New Jersey" one was so-so, last nights episode was absolutely hilarious. 83-year old Barney was awesome, and so was the whole Intervention thing.

    The alleged original "50 reasons to have sex" list from "The Naked Man" episode.

    My wife turned me onto this show not too long ago...pretty funny. I liked the burger episode with Regis in it and the new jersey vs new york episode was great.

    She also turned me onto Big Bang Theory, which I enjoy as well but the geeks come off as gay rather than just geeks...

    Warning, spoilers ahead!

    Did anyone watch the finale last night? I had watched a few seasons with my wife but neither of us have followed the show much recently. We were able to catch the last half of the finale last night, and yikes....it was bad.

    First, the mother that the entire series has been building towards is introduced...and summarily killed off. The kids realize Ted had the hots for Robin all this time and encourage him to go after "Aunt Robin." Really awkward.

    More strange was Barney, whom after spending an entire season exploring his and Robin's wedding day, ends up a sad and lonely single man....until the last 10 minutes of the finale when he impregnates a random girl (we never learn anything about her) and instantly becomes a changed man when he sees his daughter for the first time. Mmmmmkay.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I've been watching for a while now...loved the ending.

    At first when TM got sick, I was choked - but how they wrapped it up I thought was clever.

    Sounds like the perfect shit sandwich ending to a shit show.


    Can't tell you how many times I've tried to watch this show but have to turn it. Ted's a complete pussy worse than a desperate chick and Barney's jokes got more idiotic all the time. One of the worst sitcom characters I've ever seen. This show blows.
