    How I Met Your Mother

    One of my favorite shows but...

    Robin used to be hot, now she looks like a 12 year old boy. Her new boyfriend is not funny, doesn't fit in and, IMO, changes the whole dynamic of the show for the worse.

    And Marshall and Lilly are moving to the 'burbs.

    I feel like The Fonz is heading toward the ski ramp, if you know what I mean.

    Haven't watched in awhile, but I like Robin's shorter hair. That is when it was shoulder length. Tell me they didn't screw up Barney's character.....

    Re: How I Met Your Mother

    This show will end the same way Friends did, by amplifying each character until they are completely annoying, then dragging it out for about 3 or 4 years too many.

    Last night's episode was almost unwatchable.

    Re: How I Met Your Mother

    Just said the same thing to the wife last night. Great show and has been great for years but the new story lines suck. It's not really funny anymore. It's a drama with some mild humor hear or there. Hope they can turn it back around.

    Agree the Robin and BF relationship is awful

    Re: How I Met Your Mother

    Totally agree.

    It's like Robin totally just gave up. He douchey BF needs to go, but maybe they're really driving home how crappy of a character he is just so they can kill him off Jack Bauer style. At least that's what I'm hoping for.

    Re: How I Met Your Mother

    Robin had a baby and then went on some super skinny diet thing which makes her look a bit off now. She looked good in the first couple of seasons. Im not saying she looks bad now, but there is too skinny sometimes. The show itself is aiming for 2 more seasons I think and then its done. I wish it was only one more.

    Will I be the first to say that I thought this thread was about Clones21?

    I know, it got off to a good start too. Downhill from there though.

    Re: How I Met Your Mother

    Barney remains the only redeeming quality of this show anymore. I've always found Ted to be unwatchable and wish he were dead. Robin's new BF doesn't work at all, as mentioned.

    Re: How I Met Your Mother

    Robin's character is just getting too outrageous, and she does look a lot different. In the first few seasons she was calm, cool, and collected, but now she is getting ridiculous. In my opinion, I have always thought that Robin was the weakest character in the main group in terms of what to expect from her as an character, and I don't like it how the show is focusing on her on her relationship with Kevin as one of the main plot lines for this season. Robin should be one of those characters that add support instead of outright leading the plot. Kevin's character seems like he doesn't have the flow or the timing down with the rest of the cast, and that may be due to the writing or poor acting but he just doesn't seem like he is a natural fit. It wouldn't bother me to see him gone.

    I kind of wish that the show revolved more around Barney and his own personal growth. I know that everyone enjoys his shallow depth-based humor, and so do I, but I also enjoyed the plot where his dad wanted to get back together with him. Maybe the writers will go back to that since there some loose ends with that plot, but Barney's character will probably experience more growth since they have showed him getting ready for his wedding. I hope it's not with Robin, and it annoys me when the show hints that either Ted or Barney wants her back.

    In regards of having the show ending soon, I think that it is about getting to wrap here in about the next 2 season. The problem with that is, I don't think the writers have settled on who the mother is supposed be. This will be at least a season long plot line since they will show episodes up to when Ted gets married. Not to mention that all of Ted's serious relationship have last about a season- Robin, Stella, and Zoey.

    Sorry about the long post, but this is just some ramblings from an HIMYM enthusiast. Also this may be longest in-depth post that I have ever had.

    Re: How I Met Your Mother

    I've seen a lot of the first 3 seasons, and definitely think its start to get ridiculous. The biggest problem is that from Day 1, its built on the premise that the show will have a definite end date, and they've tied so many events in the early seasons into the eventual end-game of Ted meeting his wife, that after about 4 seasons, the longer they drag it on, the less credible the show becomes.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Stella was my favorite of Ted's girlfriends but I think she has a regular gig on another show now so I kind of doubt if she's coming back.
