They filmed all of Lyndsay and David's stuff in the first year, so they're a nonissue.
Well, I was only pointing them out specifically as two of the least important supporting cast members. Off the top of my head, we've seen of the recurring variety:

John Lithgow
Rachel Bilson
Danica McKellar
Bill Fagerbakke
Wayne Brady
Sarah Chalke
Laura Prepon
And the guy who plays Ranjit.

And I'm sure I'm forgetting some. These all appeared in at least two episodes, most in many more. And none of these were "stunt-casting" (like Britney Spears was).

That was a very good episode.. the first minute had me in stitches when she repeatedly punched out Barney but as it progressed and ended i was really sad for Robin. Even if she never wanted kids the fact she can't have them is still a sucker punch ...
For the life of me, I thought there was an episode a few years back where "future Ted" (Bob Sagat) mentioned something about "Aunt Robin" never having had kids of her own.

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

there was.

Just before Marshall and Lillies wedding.

It's why they broke up.

And then there was a talk to the kids about how good Aunt Robin had it travelling the world.

That's what I thought. So I kind of had a feeling this pregnancy was going to turn out to either be a false alarm or a continuity screw up.

I thought they were going to violate their own continuity.

After seven years of Voyager, I'm used to Producers who don't watch/read/remember their own work.

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

Thought I'd bump this thread since there was a new episode last night.
I hate these episodes when Ted and Barney have some crazy scheme to do something like open a bar or adopt a baby. Kal Penn contributed absolutely nothing to this episode, the Puzzles song was lame, and the whole wet hat bit was just stupid.

The Marshall and Lily stories with their fathers had potential, but since they had to cram in the Ted/Barney, and Robin stories they couldn't do those stories justice. I wish the producers would get a clue that they don't need to give everyone equal time in every episode.

IMO this was the worst episode of the season.

Ah, but the Puzzles Flashback was real.

That shit is money.

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

I liked the Puzzles bit and found it much more interesting than the whole "Mysteries of the Unexplained" bit with Marshall and Lily.

I groaned when Ted mentioned that Robin's career turnaround would be explained later, as that's the problem with the show, everything somewhat interesting is teased and we're told he'll tell us later.

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

What about the Goat on his birthday.

Have we got to the Goat?

They've cock teased us on that twice now.

Once Robin gets a good job, surely she's moving out.

They did the part with the goat, just explained that he got the year wrong, and that not all the events were happening together (some were that birthday, the goat part was the following year, when Robin was living with him).

We got to the goat in the fourth season finale. And why would Robin move out? Honestly, they're splitting up the group enough as it is with Lily and Marshall moving to Long Island. Why do it even more?

We got teased with the goat a few times, then we actually got the goat story, and then they've "flash-backed" to the goat a few times since.

I actually like that this show throws in the references to people who are paying attention. Like how every time they eat a sandwich, they're really smoking pot. Or this episode's reference with the bouncer punching Barney, they don't even bother explaining why he punched Barney. It rewards fans who have been with the show without boring them to death by re-explaining things.

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

Sorry to pull a little thread necromancy here but I thought after this week's episode it was appropriate...

Intellectually I knew Robin and Ted would never happen (she's been Aunt Robin to the kids since season 2 or so, if not from earlier I think) but I was still rooting for it to happen anyway. Last night was just heart breaking for me. Ted's so willing to throw his own happiness away for Robin and she just tosses it in his face time and again. Poor Ted, I hope they get closer to revealing the mother soon.

It does though, along with seeing the episode where Robin asks Ted to be her best man in reruns today, confirm to me that Robin and Barney aren't through. I'm almost sure now that it's Barney and Robin's wedding we flashed forward to at the beginning of this season. They've danced around each other all season and now both are single and Robin's ready to say yes to someone (just not Ted apparently).

Barney and Robin are happening. It's a foregone conclusion.... At least I hope so.

She's been "Aunt Robin" since the first episode, actually.
