well i just caught myself up on the final episodes of the season.

 
i thought it ended really strongly. it wasn't the best season, no, in fact it may have been the worst so far. but i think that's mostly to do with character development, as there was very little. Marshall & Lily's decision to have a baby being the only major development. i also thought the writing was not as strong as in previous seasons.

but leaving aside these thoughts, if you just watch the episodes without overanalysing them like i fell into the trap of doing (note to self, never read the have-you-met-ted.com blog ever again) then they were all nearly very good episodes, and there were some gems: The Playbook, the Jennifer Lopez ep, Maggie - the girl who had a small window of opportunity, and lots of great smaller moments as well.

it looks like we're probably in for seven or eight seasons, possibly more, which has me a little worried, but as long as the writing and the cast remains strong we should be right. if season six is a big one for Ted then i think we're on the right track.


everyone else's thoughts please!

Yes.

I read an article in Entertainment Weekly recently where the show's creator (blanking on his name) came out and admitted that Season 5 was not very good, and that they are looking to get things back on track with Season 6. Gotta admire that kind of honesty. I still enjoyed it, just because I love this damn cast so much but, yeah, it was probably the least memorable season so far. So we've got some improvement to look forward to here, hopefully.

I'll try to find the article and link it here.

Thanks for the reminder! I haven't been watching any TV lately, so I would totally have missed this.

Yeah, last season was a huge downer for me. It was nowhere NEAR as funny as previous seasons were, but I'm willing to forgive all that if they move the story along this season.

Can't wait for more awesomely legendary Barney-isms!

yay for the return of Barney! I'll admit... there were more episodes last season that I didn't see than one's I actually did see. Looking forward to a better season!

For you, I'm thinking a parked car near New Meadowlands Stadium in July. I can take you while you're waiting in the GA line and have you back before the doors open. Just don't expect to have much energy for the concert.

"How much do you want for your dibs?"

"Two....hundred....and fifty thousand dollars!"

Whose wedding do you guys think that is?

 
I feel like it's gotta be Robin's wedding. But to guess that it is either Robin or Barney's seems almost too easy. I don't know.

I don't know. But the girl with the yellow umbrella is definitely going to be there! I don't remember hearing any spoilers about any of the cast getting married this season, but I generally try to avoid being spoiled. Maybe it's someone they've met at the bar, or another sort of minor character. I have no idea who it could be, though.

Lots of good moments tonight. Looks like it should be a great season.

Loved the Hi-6.

that would be great. it'll be about 15 years before they screen the entire season here so i'll look for the ep online tonight. i enjoyed moments of Season Five but it was definitely the weakest so far.

it's good to have you back, old friend. :cornflakes:

 
the lesbian kiss was a bit of a WTF moment but it looks like they've set themselves up for some character development which was completely missing from season five. shame Lily isn't nearly as hot as she was seasons two - four.

granted, this is all on paper and everything, but season six sounds rather uninteresting to me.

 
the whole robin sparkles thing was a little entertaining the first time, but incredibly lame the second. and marshall and lily try to have a baby? great, that's what ruins every sitcom ever.


i will give it a fair shot whenever i can see it, but i'm not holding out much hope for this semester. hopefully this means i'll actually be pleasantly surprised and they'll win me back.

Sorry Barnacle... I'm not doing GA. You're a man who likes fine Italian, so come find me in the seated sea of 82,000. We'll discuss your prize then.


On another note, my9 is showing HIMYM reruns at 7 & 7:30! woo hoo!
