They've realeased a soundtrack for the show. It includes the Robin Sparkles song, "You Just got Slapped," and, most legendarily, “Nothin’ Suits Me Like a Suit”

Just got caught-up with the first two episodes. Very underwhelmed.

The show just hasn't been the same for about a season now. I hope this is the last one.

Bite your tongue!

The worse this show gets the more the people making it deserve to be tied to it as punishment.

Well, not to beat a dead horse, but the show was set up with a finite timeline and definite story arc. At this point, since they apparently can't/won't show how Ted met really the mother until the end, they're just spinning their wheels. Furthermore, the flash forwards have more or less tied them to certain outcomes with Marshall, Lily, Barney and Robin and so there isn't a lot left to do with them either.

You apparently never watched Smallville. By Season 10, Tom Welling was the only character from the pilot episode to still be on the show, and that was only because he was the title-fucking-character. When the producers made their "no tights, no flights" dictum, they essentially signed up for 10 seasons of perpetual wheel-spinning. Miller and Gough were able to parachute out of that burning building, but that didn't stop the CW from continue to beat a dead horse.

Actually, it seems to me that the train wreck that was 'Smallville' only proves my point

I was mostly addressing your final statement, that "there isn't a lot to do anymore". If the producers wanted to, they could make How I Met Your Mother keep going until the year 2030, when the kids are actually as old as they look in the flash-forwards.

In the final episode, they skip ahead another 30 years and they have the Lidsay and the kid from Wizards of Waverly Place in old people make up finishing telling the story to their combined children "And that's how Gramps met Grammy."

Well I'm glad stripper gal is gone. I'm surprised they haven't explicitly reminded the viewrs that Robin met her current boyfriend several times before, several years ago.

I'm sure it's coming up in a future episode. Since he survived the pre-nup episode, there's probably a Robin-centric episode coming up.

Well, I'm still enjoying the show and so is most of America, judging by the ratings. Next year is a given now if everyone signs back on for another year.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: Barney and... (Spoilers ahead...)

The year is 2030.

Ted Mosby is 52 years old, still sad and alone, while all his friends are married.

He goes to a strip club, gets wasted, and ends up going with one of the dancers, who happens to be a single mother.
The morning after, as Ted prepares for a walk of shame, he walks out to find he woman's two kids on the couch. They awkwardly ask how this random stranger in their house knows their mom.
Ted, being his socially awkward self, tells these two random children his entire life story, leading up to HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER.

Well... Segel seems pretty fed up with the show so who knows.

However recently Patrick Dempsey / Dr. Sheppard from Greys Anatomy stated that he wanted to leave Grey's after 8 seasons but considered otherwise when he thought about having to look for work again... a well running show is a steady paycheck after all.

Some of the Mother cast may feel the same even if the show became stale.. work is work even if your heart is not in it anymore.

Same reason some of the guys stuck with Scrubs during that Med School travesty.
