I really do like HIMYM but there are two things about season 7 I want to get off my chest
1) Robin / Cobie Smulders - In earlier seasons she looked extremely attractive. She didn't have super-model looks, but she had something much better...natural beauty. But in season 7 she looks really really thin - in an unhealthy way. Does anyone else agree.
2) Ted - The thing that drives me crazy about season 7, and to a lesser extent season 6, is that it seems like every other week Ted gives the "I want what Lily and Marshall have..." speech. But at the same time he doesn't seem to do anything about it. I'm sort tired of that speech and wish he would say something different or at least do something about it.
Having said that about Ted, I'm in a similar boat, so I think my gripe about the character can be put down to "everytime you point a finger, there are three pointing back at you"
These are just two thoughts about season 7 in particular that I wanted to share.
General thoughts are that its enjoyable. I do love Marshall's character. I think 24 episodes a season is too many for this sort of show when you how it will turn out, because you end up with too many episodes which are "filler" episodes where nothing happens to progress the story of how Ted met his wife and this can drive people away (it drove me away, but I came back - thankfully). At least we know Ted meets his wife at Barney's wedding so all these episodes about Barney in a roundabout kind of way is getting us there.
