This is the main reason I think they've screwed up. What's the point of finding out who the wife is if she's a brand new character? It has no effect on the viewer.

According to an interview that was given a long time ago what the producers were thinking of doing is Ted meeting the girl who is the mother and then a three minute flash of the courtship. marriage and birth of the kids

That's what I was expecting. I hope it does not happen.

Also, I can't believe this show lasted this long with an atrocious lead character and actor. Supporting cast can make a big difference it seems.

I'll take Leonard over Ted any day of the week. I love both shows equally but ever since season 3 of HIMYM I have hated Ted more and more with each episode. Leonard has not had that effect on me yet.

Lol. How's my favorite architect other than well endowed?
Mom?

Oh my god the "two can play at that game" had me busting out laughing. Hasn't happened while watching HIMYM in quite a few seasons.

How dramatic. I actually like Ted's character and the way he is played.

I watched some of the older episodes, you don't realise just how much of a downturn this show has taken. It's slightly painful now.

As much as I would have wanted this a few YEARS ago when the show was still great, at this point now, as soon as I find out who she is, it will probably release that feeling that holds me to wanting to watch. At this point I just wanna know who she is and have an episode explaining about her. After that, I don't know how much I could handle

So it finally happened...at least it happened in a totally Barney way.

Now can we please move on?

I must add though that the Marshall/Lily lullaby was hilarious...but don't forget the robot.

Not bad... I usually don't like how much this show has been hated on, but the ending was pretty obvious that Barney was just trying to get Robin to the top of the building.

I hated the first 45 minutes of the episode but the last 15 were amazing. Glad we can finally move on. Remember Ted meets his wife at Barney's wedding.

That convoluted plot to lure Robin there seems like something that would never, ever work, and yet I find it more believable than I did Barney possibly dating Patrice. This at least moves the plot forward. I could have done without the cartoonish craziness for the first half of the episode, though.

The whole Playbook is based on such scenarios.

I gotta admit, I had a big smile on my face when Barney told Robin to turn the page over.

This show is so predictable, it's ridiculous. The only thing I enjoy is Robin yelling at Patrice.

I'm surprised at how many seem to think Robin yelling at/about Patrice is funny.

Something about women not speaking in their natural voice gives me the giggles - Robin yelling at Patrice, Nicki Minaj switching to her deep voice ...

I didn't think the first 45 minutes were that bad. I actually laughed a little more then than some of the recent episodes. The jinx was pretty funny.

Although it may have been slightly unbelievable and predictable at the same time, the climax of that episode was great. Definitely the best of this season.

I liked the jinx, the bed time song, and Chris Elliot. The proposal was solid, hated Ted going to see his old professor. Didn't really care for the Seth Green storyline. Ranjit was pretty funny as well.

Count me in as someone who loves when Robin yells at Patrice.
