Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Looking at the IMDb boards though, a lot of people seem to hate it.
The reviewer at the AV Club liked it a lot.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I thought it was a lot of fun. Not every episode has to be full of sweet character moments (although, I enjoy those as well). This was really over-the-top, and I laughed many many times. The "tree-way" line was perfect.

The IMDB boards are legible?

OK, that episode was stupid as hell but it was pretty funny. It made me laugh. It was nice to see something a little different to break up the monotony of this season so far.

Pretty much it.. it was a nice standalone episode and i loved the digs at all the cheap Kung Fu movies.

I also laughed quite a bit when everybody else always backed up Marshall with his insane, Barney level stories

Slap Bet is one of my all time favorite episode though many slaps didn't live up to the running gag. The best one is Marshall knocking the shit out of Barney when he performed his ludicrous play to get back at Lily.. the slap came out of nowhere which made it so funny.

I just hope the final slap will become truly legendary (and no.. i will not wait for it).

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I liked "Cleveland is the city equivalent of a slap in the face."

It was kind of a silly episode, but I laughed a lot. My kids thought the kung-fu stuff was hysterical.

That's the thing, I think this was the weakest of the slap episodes. Of course it didn't help that I didn't remember the reason for the slap from the previous year and they never mentioned it here

I happened upon this show by accident while checking on an old lady in bad health that lived next door at the time. I'm not up to date on it, but it's become a favorite. Funny despite seeing the punchline a mile away.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Yeah I've always loved when they do wacky, silly stuff like this (and it was a nice break from the dull and neverending marriage storyline). I'm always surprised when other HIMYM fans don't seem to care for them.

And I'm also surprised at the racism charge now being leveled at the ep:

It looked to me like they were only making fun of bad kung fu movies. There were no bad asian accents or slanted eye makeup that I could see. Not sure what the issue is.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

^So did I. I'm the most PC person around, but I saw it as just making fun of kung-fu movies and nothing more.

Is that the national past-time these days, being offended by everything?

I thought it was really funny, in all its absurdness.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

It was weird, but I really liked it; not everything has to advance the main story line. The slap montage at the end was great.

There are people out there who apparently live to get offended and raise some trouble (mainly to get into the spotlight according to my opinion).

Chances are they didn't even get that they were making fun of/paying hommage to bad Kung Fu movies because they haven't seen any. But then again they may ignore it and decide to get offended just for the heck of it.

Sadly the producers didn't stand their ground and tell them to get offended somewhere else.

I'm not even close to PC. I don't really care if you make fun of me in good spirit assuming I can return the favor.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Yet another excellent episode. I loved Truth Serum Barney. The voice, the expression... classic.

And two MAJOR revelations:

We find out what Barney does. We find out the names of Ted's kids.

I really wish we'd gotten an entire episode of this Barney long con sting thing though. Maybe they'll touch on it later? I want to see him going to the Feds all over confident and bragging.

And I'm really glad Marshall brought up Lily leaving him and moving to San Fran. I was thinking that the entire time they were fighting!
