  • Season 6 Finale

    In with a bang out with a bang. That is a way to describe this season and this episode. After Ted finally has a chance of contributing to the skyline of New York City, he has only one problem. Who will push the button to demolish The Arcadian. Both Barney and Ted argue want to push it. This time their fight is not anything like Barney's fight with Marshall earlier. This time it's just amusing. The button as with many other things on this show is part of something bigger. Before the building goes down, Ted freaks out and considers getting back with Zoey. This is not the first time when an event (no matter how small or big) that causes Ted to want to get back with an ex girlfriend. I enjoyed seeing all the moments with Ted wanted to get back with them. After this latest freak out this leads Robin and Barney to try to stop Ted. I loved that it was Ranjit who was the driver to help them out.

    Meanwhile Marshall has a big interview that may be in trouble due to soup that Lilly accidentally giving him even though they both have gotten sick from there before. On a side note that place reminds me of that place in Chicago that Ted and Marshall visited when they were in college. Lilly does get sick from the soup and it's funny how she gets sick. This does not deter her skills as interpreting conductor when Ted leaves her message about Zoey. This helps out Robin and Barney who came by for a visit.

    Robin and Barney's time together was entertaining. I don't want to spoil on whether they catch Ted or not but Barney decides to let Ted push the button. Great song as the building was going down. If you remember it was the same song at the start of this season. This episode could've ended here and been great but the actual end was even better. I loved, loved (yes it was that good) by Robin at the end. It leaves you guessing on whether she made the right decision. I also really enjoyed that you get to see who one of the people to be married that Ted was best man that may lead something even more. I am not even talking about who the bride is. A great way to end what may be the best season at this point.moreless

    How I Met Your Mother episode
  • Lily is pregnant.

    8.5
    "Challenge Accepted" is a good How I Met Your Mother episode. The episode itself was really disappointing before watching the ending. It had an amazing ending! I loved seeing the Arcadian fall to the ground because by this episode I am just sick of hearing about it. I LOVE That Lily is FINALLY PREGNANT!!! All the talk of pregnancy over the seasons, it just gets annoying when she wasn't pregnant already. So I'm glad she's pregnant now. I love how it's revealed that Ted is the best man at Barney's wedding. I love the character Nora. I instantly liked her. But I'm hoping Barney marries Robin. I give this episode a 8.5/10.moreless
  • this was a very interesting episode and now the mother's identity is clear i cant believe no one knows it yet you want to know click on this review......(spoilers)

    first of all in (no tomorrow) season 3 e 12 we see emmanuelle vaugier walking by ted and they say a word to each other.why would they put an actress to do just that and what is the reason of the meeting between them that is because she is the mother and she is not blond that is another reason. and ted says that the mother was there in the bar. and about what is her charecter going to be on the show she is barney's sister (the reasons):1-when barney visit his father he says that barney's sister is in college and ted says that the mother is in college. 2-ted meets the mother in barney's wedding. that should be enough to make you believe thatthemotheris emmanuellevaugierandsheisbarney's sister. when the show is over and they finally reveale the mother's identity just remember this review and thank memoreless
  • one of my shows that didn't have a mediocre season finale

    first off, yay! marshall and lily are having a baby! second, WTF! barney is the one getting married! and before ted?! i did not see that coming, i don't think it was the best episode of himym but it was still good and i enjoyed watching it as opposed to some of the other season finales i watched. i enjoyed the friendship between barney and robin, i think it's the first time i've seen them be really serious confidants since they broke up. and barney is an awesome friend to ted (when he wants to be). i love this show and i'm glad we get at least two more seasons, and it doesn't bother me anymore that he hasn't met the mother becasue i watch for the characters, not the story. the stories are good but if it weren't for the characters there woulnd't be a show. can't wait for next season and the next clues about the mother, and also when barney is getting married, cause i'm pretty sure it wasn't right that second.

    hurry up september!moreless
