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

My favorite bit was that all the extras in the Mother's scene were actually members of the production staff on the show, (inluding a former co-worker of mine!), utilized to cut down on the possibility of the scene being leaked.

A surprise brilliantly executed by the show. Bring on season 9!

If they really wanted a lookalike they could have hired that girl from the Wendy's commercials.

Indeed, they really went to a lot of effort to keep this scene a secret until broadcast. It's really renewed my interest in this show, like you, I say bring on Season 9!

ETA: I've been watching the last minute or so of the finale here, probably more than is absolutely normal but I can't help it. I'm filing the mother reveal in my mind as one of my favorite moments of television. I think in the future it will end up in one of those lists of "Best moments in Television ever" or some such.

Also, I love lurking on the IMDB for this show and watching all the Ted/Robin shippers dealing with this revelation.

That's entirely dependant upon the reception of season 9.

History is littered with shows that had a stylistic or genre shift in their final season, only to completely alienate the viewer. I'm holding out hope that Bays and Thomas have a vision for their show, and that they have a story to tell and will tell it well.

I popped over to IMDB to take a look, and the amount of butthurt is unreal. The show has told us numerous times that Robin is not the mother.

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

Pleasantly surprised.

The episode itself was not that big a deal i must say but i fully expected them ti withhold the face of the mother and they didn't.

I also expected a two parter with the wedding itself and in the last few moments a repeat of the station scene where Ted sits on the bench and the mother approaches under her yellow umbrella.. fade out until fall.

Well.. i'm curious too see how the last season will play out. A 24 style approach would have been cool except for possible continuity purposes if they indeed meet for the first time after the wedding has concluded. That would indeed be a kick in the face if they spend the entire season with them prancing around and never actually meeting.

A few months waiting and then we'll see.

No doubt. Pretty early-on (and a bunch of times since) we've heard future Ted telling his kids one thing or another about their "Aunt Robin". do people just not pay attention?

Interestingly enough, it's been done (and was cancelled): Big Day on ABC in 2006, starring Marla Sokoloff. It was spectacularly terrible.

I'd think Thomas and Bays would be able to do a better job with the concept.

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

I've been looking to get the seasons on blu-ray, but I can't seem to find any evidence that seasons 1-3 are on blu-ray, just 4-7. Is it just something they haven't gotten around to yet? Or am I just not looking in the right place (which seems unlikely, as I've been on amazon, and I think if anything, I'd be able to find it there).

I've never seen seasons 1-3 on Blu-Ray, and the Season 1 DVDs that I've seen are cropped to 4x3 as well. Hopefully they would get released eventually, considering the show's popularity.

^ They might release a complete series set on Blu-ray.

As for that ending, I'm still pretty jazzed about it too. It's the biggest moment in the series so far.

Thought the back and forth between Marshall and the guy on the phone was hilarious.

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

I've been searching on youtube but I haven't found something like this. But I think it'd be cool for someone to edit together a montage of all the Mother sightings throughout the show.

If someone has the time and all the DVD's I present this as a challenge to you, it's something I'd really like to see
