Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I agree with the points made. I always felt that it was more of a hobby for Lily. Plus, I thought I wouldn't want that job if I was a real artist, except as a freelancer on the side perhaps. The Captain kept telling her what to do. I got the impression some of the picks she made was really the Captain's with little input from Lily.

Also, Lily was all about it being her dream. I don't think she dreamed about being an art consultant for a rich guy in Italy fora year.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Episode 200! How Your Mother Met Me...

A predictable episode on many levels.

- We knew it was coming when the season was announced.
- Different Intro... Check!
- As expected, they took us through the key moments where she appeared before.
- Ted couldn't actually meet her and sure enough he didn't.

Still good to actually see though. The only thing I didn't like was that they gave her too much baggage.

Everyone has baggage. I missed the first few minutes of the episode (no cable so no DVR) so I don't know all the details but I think it's impossible for someone single in their late 20s or early 30s not to have a lot of baggage. I'm 34 and single and I certainly related to the mother in this episode.

Disappointed they went the whole time without naming her, but expected I guess. Backstory was ok, just felt a little short. Maybe I was expecting too much.

Also, despite the title, she didn't actually meet him, although she'd seen him around I guess...

Well, he hasn't met her either, and we know for a fact this season concludes with said meeting. Not really that big of a disappointment. It's more "her journey through life to the point where she's ready to meet Ted".

Really, really disappointed we didn't get her name... but an excellent episode.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Really good episode. Like everyone else it was pretty predictable because most of the stuff that happened was the stuff that we talked about before the season even started One thing I was disappointed about though was that we didn't get the Mother telling the story to her kids for this episode.

A very enjoyable episode; I just wish Ted had leaned over and said "Hello."

Then they would have needed to hire an actress to play the voice of the older Mother.

Amen to that. This episode hit pretty close to home due to the loss of someone in my own life relatively recently. It rang true to me.

Yeah, or he started singing along or something like that.

I did enjoy it a lot though, and I think they definitely picked the perfect actress to play the mother because I found it quite a touching episode, I mean her speech to the stars was great and we never even met Max!

It was nice to see the return of some things...and Mitch!

nice to know that she was the 'no' in his "2 out of 3 times, guaranteed"

So happy to see naked guy again! I loved the episode, and thought it was very sweet. I enjoyed seeing all the callbacks to older episodes.

I was a bit worried where the season was going back during the opening episodes, but things have certainly turned around. The mother has been a brilliant addition to the cast, and now I can't wait for next week.
