Is anyone else just completely uninterested in this show all of a sudden? I'll just stumble upon spoilers sometime in April and be done with it.

I enjoyed it. Not their best, not even close, but I was still happy to just have a new episode to watch.

I thought Thomas Lennon was the best part of the episode. Not sure if it was to joke the fans, but when Barney is doing the minute story to Quinn he said Robin ran away to Brazil when she really ran away to Argentina.

I don't see them doing a full season because nearly every actor has slipped up with the media in talking about the other stuff they are doing and said they are looking to move on

Very possible. I think everybody wants to move on at this point.


Also, I didn't mind tonight's episode.

Tried to salvage the episode by using a great ending song.

Decent episode. It set the path for Barney and Robin to reconcile, and showed us more about the wedding/mother. Hopefully the wedding is at the end of the season.

That said, there weren't enough (or any) funny moments.

It was good but we have to live with the fact that we will probably never get a classic episode of this show again like in the first 5-6 seasons. It just doesn't hit the same highs though the consistency has gone up as of late once things started happening. The problem I find is that before, the story line was the supplement and the comedy/jokes were the foundation of the show. Now however it's like a drama with a few jokes thrown in which others might like but as someone who watches sitcoms and not drama (excluding Sherlock), I preferred the old version.

Did anyone see the new sitcom after this called Partners? It's a fairly generic sitcom, not anything invovative like this was or Community or Office or something but I did laugh at quite a few parts and it seems promising, better than 2 Broke Girls. The gay guy on the show was kinda funny (bit over the top but funny)

I just watched on DVR and I cant remember most of it after watching what happened on MNF. Though it seems like the mother will be introduced this season.

Read Allan Sepinwall's review tonight on HitFix, and thought he had a pretty interesting idea if they do another season. His first idea was introduce the mother at the end of this season, and have her be a regular character next year.

His second idea was introducing the mother, this year, and than just doing a 9th season of Saget telling the kids 22 crazy stories from the gang's past that he didn't discuss. No real storyline, just fun comedic episodes.

I enjoyed the episode. I like the direction of the overall story they're going with but I just can't help but hate what they've done to Marshall he's always been my favourite character but the Lily/Marshall/Marvin storyline is gonna get played out fast. I hope Big Fudge can shine again by the end of the season.

I think this has potential to be the last season, and I feel EXTREMELY confident we meet the mother at some point this season, just depending on when the wedding between Barney and Robin happens.

There were also rumors circulating in August that Segel and Hannigan were very unlikely to return for season 9. Plus with Radnor's burgeoning indie filmmaking career it seems like he wants to do some different stuff in his life too. There are just too many factors pointing against this show returning past this season I think. I think we're looking at the last ~25 episodes of the show this year.
I like that now that he's "made it" and got his millions of dollars being an actor, he can do what he wants and not even have to be in front of the camera again. It's weird how I had never even heard of him until HIMYM and that was enough to let him not have to take roles he doesn't want. Pretty cool.

I like the idea of it ending after this season but I have a feeling it will go until the end of next year. Overall, I still love the show and in it's entirety, I think it's amazing but the last couple seasons won't compare to the first few, in my opinion.

Yeah this would be ideal in this sitcom but unfortunately the comedy train has run a bit dry for the writers so they're relying on the story line and drama more with the comedy coming 2nd.

I like the idea of this. Have it lead up to the series finale where we find out she's pregnant.

OK episode.

Still waiting for a series where German characters are actually speaking German and not some gibberish with lots of "ch"-sounds. Edit: Forgot Breaking Bad.

That made me wonder if, on German TV for instance, they ever show someone "speaking" English but it's just gibberish as well.

^In anime, they use lots of gratuitous English, and a lot of it sounds like jibberish.
