Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Yeah, ted whining about not being with Robin again was so tedious, but the Barney plot was really good and funny.

So The Mother already knows Barney and Lilly.

Which is funny, cause in a way The Mother has put events into motion that will lead to her meeting Ted without even realizing it.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

At first I was thinking "Well this is stupid to do a flashback episode about a story that could have been told last season as a filler episode." But as the episode went on it became clear that this story could only be told as part of Season 9. This was the best episode since the season premiere.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I didn't care for it until the Mother showed up, that part was very well done. It's funny about Bryan Cranston though, whenever I see him on anything I don't think of Breaking Bad, or Malcom in the Middle, I always see him as Tim Whately: the perverted, re-gifting, Judiasm converting (for the jokes) dentist on Seinfeld.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I wonder if they are setting up Bryan Cranston for another appearance this season. His scenes this week were entirely filmed behind the desk at his office, and could have been shot anytime.

Essentially, he brought nothing to the role other than the fact that he's Bryan Cranston (i.e., they could have achieved the same effect by simply having Ted talk on his phone about a job in Chicago, without ever seeing who was on the other end of the line).

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

^^ Yeah, I think that was really just a 'Look who we got!' kind of thing with him. It's been so long since he's been on the show, I think that if it were any other actor they wouldn't have even bothered bringing them back.

Maybe he'll return later in the season to try and convince Ted some more, this time by making the trip out to the hotel.

Funny, I didn't realize Cranston played Whatley until well after Malcolm in the middle came out, even though I followed Seinfeld most of its run.

I doubt he would come to the hotel, since it appears Ted has probably already accepted his offer.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Can't decide if last week's ep proved that the seasonal concept actually works, or if it proved that the seasonal concept is a dumb idea. Whatever it is, though: I enjoyed it more than anything else so far, save possibly the season opener.

But he does have to ring up Cranston to say that he doesn't want the job any more.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Tonight's episode was good. I especially loved the reference to the perpetually unexplained Pineapple.

Next week's rhyming episode had better be good. That could end up being incredibly bad and cheesy.

I thought tonight's episode was incredibly bad. I don't think that I laughed once. This season is taking forever.

What's the story with the pineapple? I don't remember that at all.

It was awesome to see Lithgow again, but this wasn't a very funny episode. And no Mother

Just like 98% of all the other episodes.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Do you think that the foot model who played a section of the mother a couple seasons ago feels dethroned?
