    I used to really love this show. I used to love all the great Barney quips and everything, but the show is getting SOOOO tired that I've stopped watching it this season. All the characters have been developed. It's just getting down to the "girlfriend of the month" with Barney or the "boyfriend of the month" with Robin. They've been doing this "a little ways down the road..." thing for so long now... just think --- they started that in Season 6, and here we are in Season 8 and not any further along in the plot. We still don't know who the mother is and there's no telling that they'll get there this season either. It's almost as if the writers and producers are giving us a big "Wait for it....." trying to force this epic build-up, but it never comes. When you have the target in your sights, JUST SHOOT for goodness sake!!


    I think I'll probably just wait until the show ends and only catch up with the episodes that show the ACTUAL conclusion to Ted's relationship misgivings and the introduction to "the mother". I'm getting the really strong feeling that I won't be missing anything. *sigh*


    They had a good thing going with this show, and they ruined it.

    They should have done one season less.
    Season 7 was not that good and season 8 is not that good.
    Tey should have keep the better, build the mother thing and finish last spring

    The show has become this "joke":

    So, as everyone knows, two different species (flavors) of cheerios cannot mate, right? That is, if one is honey-nut and another is blueberry, they cannot mate. Anyway, there is this one normal cheerio that is in love with a blueberry cheerio. Unfortunately, he cannot mate with her. He can't even communicate with her because they are of different species. So, he invents a machine that changes all of his CNA (Cheerio DNA) into whichever type of cheerio that he wants. However, this machine performs a process that is extraordinarily painful, because that sort of thing would hurt. Anyway. He does it, and the normal flavored cheerio becomes a blueberry cheerio. Unfortunately, this girl cheerio hates him so much that she invents an identical machine and does the process on herself in order to become a cinnamon-apple cheerio, just so she can avoid this creeper. So, she does it. The boy cheerio is starting to get upset at this because he really wants her. So he tells himself that he will go through the pain for her, and becomes a cinnamon-apple cheerio. She then changes to a honey-nut cheerio! He decides that this is the last time that he will change cheerio type. He does it, and she changes one more time, into a normal cheerio - the kind he originally was. So he says out loud, "Okay, this is really the last time. If she changes again, I will just stay back with my family." So he becomes a normal cheerio again, and she doesn't change fast enough for him to put his moves on her. So, they start dating, and he finally asks her to the Formal Bowl (ahaha, get it, bowl instead of ball). Anyway, they get there and dance intensely for a few hours. Finally, they get tired and she sends the boy cheerio to the milk bowl (you know, since it's a cereal dance, they have that and punch). He gets there and stands in line for ten minutes. Finally fed up at the really long line, he looks over at the bowl of punch and realizes there is no punch line.

    But I can see why you posted it!


    Wait... Actually, I can't.

    A lot of people say that Season 6 wasn't that good either.


    Funny, actually, because if you look at the "top rated episodes" as rated by tv.com users, it isn't until the 25th highest rated episode that isn't in the first 3 seasons. Episode number 25 on the list is Season 4 ep 1. So objectively, the common opinion is that the first 3 seasons are the best. This also goes along with the common opinions regarding Ted's girlfriends, rated highest to lowest. People generally favor Victoria, then Robin. Lots of people really dislike Stella (season 3 and 4) and it seems they HATED Zoe (season 6).


    I've come to have a completely different approach to enjoying this show now. I tend to appreciate those episodes which don't have anything at all to do with anyone's piddly little relationship whines and gripes more. That's why "The Best Burger In New York" (S4 E2) is among my favorites -- it has nothing to do with anyone's relationship woes. Mainly it's just Ted, Robin and Barney who are the main culprits. To a lesser degree, Lily and Marshall, mainly because the Swarley episode is really flipping hilarious!


    I just hope it all ends soon and they stop holding the airwaves hostage on Monday nights. ^_^
