  • My version of La vie en rose

  • SoGOOD

    Great Epidisode best in a while
  • Finally..

    9.0
    At last major plot movement... finally feeling the near end of one of my favorite shows... it was heart warming how we get to look back at the previous episodes and how they tie back on how ted met the love of his life... i hope every episode after this we get to have the same level of awesomeness up until the series finale...
  • La Vie en Rose

    9.0
    It felt rushed and more than a bit soapy, but my eyes were definitely wet by the end. I think it's a bit of overkill to have her proposed to right before she meets Ted, because now he really has to do something to wow her to push her past Max. And at this point, I don't have a clue what he's going to do (beyond being Ted). It was a good episode, but for how important the character is and how critical it is that the audience falls in love with her with Ted, I don't know if this fit the bill.moreless
  • Meet the Mom..

    9.0
    Finally the moment had come we got an episode from the point of view of the mother and it was perfect. The past eight years in fast motion, including all the near meetings and misses showing why this mother will be the perfect fit for Ted and why she couldn't meet him earlier (her journey started off with the death of her then boyfriend whom she considered The One, and she simply needed the time to be able to let go). They managed to put in so many parallels to Ted's story that it did pay off and Cristin Milioti did a wonderful job. Well done...



    My only complaint: it took them so damn long! And after this episode I would have loved to actually see a show that was about this two being together...moreless
