  • Just bad TV, yet again..........

    After the last episode which was actually funny, HIMYM returns to the painful standard of most of last season and half of this. The only place people like this exist is on TV from deciding to break someone else's relationship up, to Robin's complete change from marriage-phobic to just saying yeah sure let's get married. I assume at some point we will actually find out who the mother is, if I had my way it would be at the end of this season, and this season's number of episodes would be reduced to 8. Just terrible unbelieveable writing that makes some first season episodes look like fine works of art. The only good thing about this waste of time is that finally Barney and Robin broke up, now there are no more combinations that can get together, maybe they can drop the sub-Friends need for everyone to hook up and Barney can get back to being Barney. Show me the mother ASAP.
