Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

"Charge it to the room" and the room is then charged to the wedding.

I assume, I assume a lot, that the guests just sign chits to their room at some point in the day.

But this is how (some) hotels work.

You get a massive itemized bill at the end that's already balanced against the credit card you supplied when you checked in, or in this case the wedding, which means the father of the brides credit card.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I'm starting to think the only reason we are getting this season instead of it being wrapped up last year is that Jason Segel agreed to one more year so long as he didn't have to be on the show anywhere near as much.

I thought that before the season even started.

His total non-inclusion in any of these first four episodes in scenes with the rest of the cast pretty much nails that point home.

I'd like to say I can't blame him (he was pretty insistent) but you'd also like a guy to be dedicated to his role. For example, Zach Galifinakis absolutely didn't want to do a Hangover III (didn't really want to do part II, either), but not only did he end up doing the film he was the only cast member to not mail it in.

Don't really care about his character, but it has a negative impact on Alyson Hannigan's character and I'm definitely annoyed by that.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I'm of two minds.

I respect a professional who is good at their job.

On the other hand, Linus is earning a roll in the hay with Lily by being there for her.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Well he will get to the wedding eventually,

And I can't see how this story line is helping Jason Segel do less because it feels like he's in the show as much as he was in the past.

It does kind of remind me of Season 4 of Arrested Development though, where the main character's rarely interacted with each other.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

They can film Jason's travel stuff, 9 episodes worth, with Sherri separately in one medium sized clot. Everyone else has to film those 9 weeks one week at a time.

You're right. Makes sense now.

Well, like I said before, Marshall will show up to the hotel eventually.

Well it's either that or he's on the other side of the country and refuses to go to work to go to work.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Once they decided to set the entire season during one weekend, I'm sure they realized pretty quickly that Marshall would end up spending a good portion of it on his own. Even if he'd just flown back to New York he probably would have been away from everyone else for a couple episodes.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Marshall may not make it any time soon, but we know he will be there at least just before the wedding begins.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Given the timeframe of the season and the distance he needs to cover (over 2000 km by car) i guess they're going to fudge it a little.. realistically such a distance could be covered by 2 drivers in about 24 hours give or take but with only a few breaks and no motel sleeping (i did about 1000 km with my dad in about 12 hours a year ago like that).

So realistically speaking Marshall should arrive mid season but be tired as hell.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Not to mention they probably won't go all the way to the wedding, since they probably don't have the car rental in that town. Marshall would have to take the train. Maybe meeting Louis on the train, with Louis whining about the break up. Marshall tries to give him advice how to win his ex back...
