I grabbed the first 3 seasons for really cheap when I was in Malaysia and watched them in a couple of sittings. Was relatively ok light entertainment so I continued on. It's not amazing but it's definitely not shit like some people say, case above. It's definitely almost run its course now so it would nice to bring it do a decent close.

Because people can relate to it and like the fact they're borderline alcoholics who have lots of fun and some dude gets laid all the time

what's not to love about booze and getting laid.

The voiceover bits at the end of each episode are so corny they remind me of the wonder years.
funnily enough Ted reminds me a bit of Kevin Arnold too, a sappy, weak loser.
Robin would be winnie cooper.
Barney is the anti Paul fifer.

it has its moments thats why i still watch

i think shows like the middle & raising hope bring more lols for this type of comedy format tho

they should tie it up at the end of this season - i'd like to see it done well

It actually seems to be wrapping up from that last episode.

Yeah, it definitely does seem to be beginning to wrap things up a bit. About time too, the show is definitely nearing the end of it's course. One or two more seasons in it tops to make sure they don't rush it and leave loose ends. It's got to the point where I really only watch it because I've got this far in that I have to see it through, there's still the occasional good moment though.

It should have finished up two seasons ago but it didn't, and with four more episodes left in this season they obviously can't magically wrap everything up neatly.

Did you actually finish reading the rest of that sentence? My 1 or 2 seasons left comment refers to the time in which they can tie up all the loose ends nicely and introduce the mother without rushing everything and doing a terrible job at it.

Please tell me you're joking, or that you only pulled this conclusion from that "trilogy time"
Spoiler:
future-flashback with Ted's baby.


I'm thinking that Ted will meet The Mother at the end of this season or at the start of the next season. Then, s08 they can date and get married and ta-dah, end of the show. Finally.

Then again, according to this, Carter Bays is ready to stretch the show into forever, as long as he's got the main actors...

Wow, such a compelling post. ^_____^



Anyway, just wanted to say that last week's episode was actually a pleasant surprise. I mean, it wasn't great, but I enjoyed all the THE NIGHT WE .... moments. Of course, the reason behind Barney's "legendary nights" was predictable, but that didn't spoil the fun. When I read Alan's review (from What's Alan Watching), I was surprised he put emphasis on the dress thing - but I agree that bit was lame...

I've watched a few of the newer episodes and they are terrible. This show is a joke.

finally wrapped up

thoughts?

i enjoyed the last season, probably coz i knew it was gonna end. It kinda fizzled out the last few seasons (got really weird n serious last season)

They went through a LOT of shit in that last episode/finale. Didn't really need the 'twist' to happen. Wasn't necessary

I liked the ending but it seems that everyone is VERY divided.

All of the people who are outraged can't seem to offer up any alternates to how the show should have ended so I'm pretty sure they're just raging for the hell of it / internet hive mind.

Man that twist was shit, fuck this show. Stuck with it to the end and while the last season had some gems in it, it really dragged on. The ending has killed it for me as well.

Spoiler:
I mean I get it but the whole divorce thing, then cancer, then them two together. Lame. Super lame.

I would have, simply put, had everyone live happily ever after. The end.

You're calling what they did lame but then want the super fun happy ending? There's no pleasing some people.

It was a realistic ending for what had become an ever increasingly realistic show. People get divorced, people die of cancer, people fall in love later in life...

I'm not saying it's not realistic, but they ruined half the characters that they spent years crafting. I found a video on Youtube that has been edited well and is something I would have been happy with.

Eh, it's done. A show hasn't annoyed me this much since Lost.

My housemates 3 years ago used to watch it. I'd cringe every time. Not funny, not clever and the faked drama was terrible. Nobody wants babies to die in a comedy show.

I accidentally watched some of the episode where the guy from the Muppets movie's dad died. Jesus Christ, he couldn't act his way out of a wet paper bag. So very bad.
