Re: How I Met Your Mother: Barney and... (Spoilers ahead...)

I still like it, and I agree about their having excellent episodes every so often.

I think a huge difference in this and previous seasons is that the characters have moved to different, well, life stages, at this point, and that's kind of necessary because each season is a year and it wouldn't be realistic otherwise, but the 20s/early 30s and settling down are a much more standard and easy time to write about than where the characters are now, which is being settled down, having the jobs they intend to stay in, even buying houses, having kids, etcetera. The conflict and drama they got from the other things, and the personal growth that all the characters were still going through earlier on, is gone, and now it really is the characters (and the show) tying up some excess loose ends.
