Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

- Sometime you can tell what the episode titles are by the word or phrase they repeat throughout the episode. In this case, they constantly used "no questions asked" and sure enough, that's the episode title.

- Cristin Milioti is credited as a regular cast member. Never noticed that before.

- I'd watch a Night Falcon spinoff.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Why would she be listed as a regular cast member if she's been in bugger all episodes?

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

The limited timeline was really obvious here, and it is starting to be distracting. Did the poker game happen this same night? All the hullabaloo of Ted trying to hook up too? Not one of their better episodes. I assume the mother will be arriving into the story some time 'tomorrow', which should begin in the next episode unless they really want to push it and have some sort of midnight adventures occur.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Marshall is driving all night.

There's en episode that focusses on his final leg of his trip and the rest of the cast takes a back seat... And there's an episode where Lilly waits up till 4 am wondering where he is already.

The continued absence of Mother is really annoying me. But a good episode.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I had no idea how they were going to make an entire wedding weekend seem interesting, but they've done a pretty good job so far. Maybe if it was just 13 episodes it would have been a lot better, though. I'm enjoying the final season, but I'm kind of just ready for it to be over.

Bored. Very bored. They have switched to auto pilot for the last season. Or all the writers are focusing on getting new jobs.

This. I'm enjoying this season so far, but I do rather wish they'd get on with it already.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

If they are playing with time, overlapping the adventures rather than playing them out sequentially, we're going to start Back to the Future IIing it soon as they start walking through old stories and glimpsing new stories we haven't seen yet... Which is something How I met your Mother does now and then quite well, but never with the volume I'm expecting for the rest of the season.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

The ending reminds me of the day I proposed to my wife. We were walking around DC. I already was set on proposing to her somewhere in Georgetown (which I did in the end). But in the meantime, we were close to downtown, when we saw the Old Post Office (the one with the tall tower off Pennsylvania Ave south of Chinatown and Metro Center for those vaguely familiar with the city).

She had never gone up there, despite growing up in the DC area, not to mention high school and college few miles away.

We went up and enjoyed the sights. That ending on the lighthouse reminded me of that day in the tower. It wouldn't have been as romantic if I had proposed to her up there.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

- Great way to integrate Ted's parents into the new format.

- Some comments and reviews are talking about Barney knowing about Robin's inability to have kids like it's a big revelation. I thought he already knew but people are saying that it wasn't clear as to whether or not he did.

- I like how they're integrating the story of Ted and the mother into the show through flash-forwards. That way we get something.

- The mother could already be pregnant when Ted proposes since there's a baby in 2015.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Is it possible that the first baby is not biologically Teds?

If those kids are twins?

Maybe that's why Ted is vamping.

The final line...

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Wasn't the return trip to Farhampton supposed to be 1 year later? Now it's two?

When did they say that trip a year later was the last time they visited Farhampton ever?

Or Ted got the date of the proposal wrong in that conversation. My father in-law almost bought the wrong number candle for my wife's birthday because he forgot her age at that moment.
