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

Just a thing that occured to me..

Boy, the writers really did bring Ted low this season. There's jus been so much dark for him and he really got desperate and sad that at times i really felt sorry for him.

As much quality the show lost during the years i'm really excited to see the final season and everything unfold for the better for Ted. Everyone else got happy and their wishes fulfilled and it's really time for Ted to get happy for the rest of his life.

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

This is a really dumb question... but a cursory Google search hasn't really done much for me here...

Does anyone remember if Ted and the gang ever went to the opera, or to the theater to see a play or musical in the past eight seasons?

I feel like I remember something like this happening, but I just can't seem to pinpoint it. Would love some help clarifying.

Thank you in advance!

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

I can only remember the one time back in season 2, when they went to see Lily in an off-off-off-off Broadway play followed by Barney putting on a one man show followed by Marshall slapping the bejesus out of him (That's two!).

There may be others. Not sure.

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

^Yeah, I remember that one. Part of me feels like there's an episode with the whole gang in the theater, despertely trying to stay awake during the show because its important to one of them. But I could also be imaginging it/mixing it up with another sitcom. But I feel like in eight seasons, there HAS to have been an episode where they go to a Broadway show, or see a play or something of that nature...

Friends had several scenes like that, mostly with them watching Joey in some horrible play.

That's exactly the episode already mentioned. Lily forces everyone to attend her bad play and Barney takes revenge by inventing his own, even worse play, and has the sit through it.

Nope, they've never been to a play where one of them isn't in it (the aforementioned Lily/Barney ep).

It's such a common sit-com trope that I'm sure you're remembering Seinfeld or Friends or some other show doing it.

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

Yeah, you're probably right. I'm 100% positive Cheers did it too. Which is fine, it just doesn't help me at the moment. Oh well. Thanks everyone for your help/input! Much appreciated

Thought of another one from season 7 - there was a short scene where Marshall and Lily went to a play called Just Screaming.

There was a HIMYM Comic-Con panel yesterday, where this funny video was presented (No spoilers):

But if you do want to read spoilers, or see the video unbleeped, you can go over to TV Guide.

Ha! That was awesome. They make a good point too.

There is no unbleeped video at the link. Just the bleeped one.

That all sounds awesome... except for the entire season being based around the wedding. That sounds like that's going to get old fast. Even if it's just the framing device. But every episode?!

That video was great. Very neccesary at this point. I hope they make a big deal in the advertising that this is the final season. I want this to be amazing and leave me sad and wanting more.
