Are people here not able to read?

The show will not be about this mother, it will be a completely different group of people that they might introduce in the final episode.

Yeah, but that is a stupid idea, so we were discussing the better idea.

An interesting idea would be to take the spinoff back a generation, by making the mother be Ted's mother and how she met his father.

I'm all for this, so long as it doesn't ruin what was special about HIMYM.

Well the stupid idea is the show.

It's like going into the Enterprise or Voyager show and just making up episodes because the real shows sucked / were too stupid to talk about.

Won't work. Ted's parents already told their story of how they met, in about one sentence. Their complete lack of romantic interest in their own meeting is what inspired Ted to tell his long story to his own kids of how he met their mother.

I'm actually interested in that if they get a good cast and change the formula a little bit, maybe make the father a cast member from the start and let him have his own storylines that intersect with the mother's at some points with them just not meeting.
Like in HIMYM we know the mother was at the party or in the class and the roommate and we saw her under an umbrella and her feet etc., instead this time drop that shit and actually show the future spouse in those and unrelated situations.

Just like the original show suprised the audience by revealing Robin was not the mother at the end of the pilot the spin-off could have them bump into each other on the very first scene but for some reason just ignoring and forgetting about each other until they meet again later.

Re: "How I Met Your Father" show being considered by CBS

I would hate to spend eight seasons on a show with two separate casts of characters that never, ever, ever meet until the end (or meet without knowing it).

Re: "How I Met Your Father" show being considered by CBS

What would be great is if they brought characters from the cast of HIMYM in as the wacky guest stars for various arcs (and show their worst sides) to kind of give us updates on what they got up to after the show ended. It is basically the only reason to make this a spin-off and not a new show entirely. It certainly doesn't sound like this will be the story of The Mother, but rather a different woman and her group of friends that will take place in 'modern day' much like the show has for most of its run.

The Atlantic Wire has an article up about the tepid reaction the series is getting from the Hollywood press and blogging communities.
