How I Met Your Mother 9X22 ‘Last Forever Parts 1&2’ : Saying Good-bye

So we’ve come to the end of the road, and I find myself a little let down.  I’m not mad about this final season or the season finale, but I’m kind of mad that the show is over.  Based on how they’ve run the final season, spending almost all of it breaking down the wedding […]

How I Met Your Mother 9×05 ‘The Poker Game’: Not a gamble

After last week’s episode, I wasn’t having a lot of faith in this week’s–but this episode played it cool and simple. It was by no means a memorable episode of the show–unlike the first three episodes of this season, which were very well done–but it wasn’t as bad or as annoying to me as the […]

How I Met Your Mother 9×04 ‘The Broken Code’: Oh, Bro

Um… what did I just watch? I think I’ve made it clear that I’ve been very impressed with the episodes so far for How I Met Your Mother’s final season. I thought they’ve handled the wedding weekend stuff very well and done justice to old material while providing new jokes. I am actually mad at […]

How I Met Your Mother 9×02 ‘Last Time In New York’: Mandy Patinkin

How I Met Your Mother had a pretty underwhelming eighth season, so I am actually surprised by how much this season is satisfying me. Like the two-part premiere, this episode delivered in most all the ways I wanted, bringing back old gags (sword-fighting a huge highlight), flashbacks, and finding a way to succeed despite a limiting […]


How I Met Your Mother 9×01/9×02 ‘The Locket’/’Coming Back’: Hey, Beautiful

We met the mother!!! Well, I mean, we met her last season. But in this double-feature, we got a taste of her past and of her imminent future. Along the way, we were also treated to some interactions that made the show feel revitalized. These episodes to me played out more as one cohesive unit […]


We’re Pumped for the 2013-14 Season!

When I was a kid, I loved summer because I could stay home and watch TV all day. Now I’m an adult who stays home all day year-round and every year I anticipate the fall because summer TV sucks and fall brings the start of awesome returning shows and new favorites. I asked some of […]


How I Met Your Mother 8×09 ‘Lobster Crawl’: The book of firsts

Well, it finally happened…again. Marshall and Lily found themselves bringing baby Marvin with them to MacLaren’s because Mickey got sick and had to take the week off. Though they justify themselves by ordering food so that they can say they’re at a restaurant that happens to also serve drinks, they decide they need a substitute […]


How I Met Your Mother 8×08 ‘Twelve Horny Women’: Bro beans

The episode begins with Marshall sitting in front of a panel of judges. We already know from the last episode that the trial he just finished would change the course of his career, and it looks as though he’s in trouble. He starts by flattering them, but when they’re not amused, he tells them about […]

How I Met Your Mother 8×05 ‘The Autumn of Break-Ups’: Brover

With all of his friends in relationships, Barney realizes that he’s short a wingman. After kissing a woman goodbye and throwing her number away once she’s inside, Barney’s voice-over tells us that he needs a bro that’s just as much of a ‘dog’ as he is. As he continues down the street, he passes a […]


How I Met Your Mother 8×04 ‘Who Wants to be a Godparent’: Better than an 8

Now that Mickey is Marvin’s new nanny, Marshall and Lily are able to spend some time together for the first time in five months. They stop at MacLaren’s to see the gang, but they’ve been told not to share any stories with them that rank lower than an 8, so Ted isn’t able to tell […]


How I Met Your Mother 8×03 ‘Nannies’: Bangtoberfest

Barney begins the night, entering MacLaren’s wishing everyone a happy Bangtoberfest, his celebration of being single again. Sadly, this episode doesn’t feature the ‘Bangity Bang’ song at all. He treats the entire bar with Bangtoberfest swag, namely, a cannon to shoot T-shirts that read ‘This time it’s really not personal.’ Marshall then enters from somewhere […]

How I Met Your Mother 8×02 ‘The Pre-Nup’: Worst husband ever

This week starts by highlighting the fact that as of summer, everyone is in a happy relationship: Ted & Victoria, Barney & Quinn, Nick & Robin, and Marshall, Lily & Marvin. Since that’s really boring, we flash to October (I’m assuming they won’t flash back to summer since it’s October now), and everyone’s fighting. Ted […]

How I Met Your Mother 8×01 ‘Farhampton’: Not a great closer, that Ted

The season begins at the Farhampton train station on a rainy night, where an old lady approaches to find Ted dressed in a tuxedo reading a book. When she sits next to him and asks if he was just at a wedding, he starts to tell her that he “doesn’t want to talk about it“, […]

How I Met Your Mother 7×24 ‘The Magician’s Code, Part 2′: Best middle name ever

I have a hard time writing about the HIMYM finale, because there weren’t a whole lot of plot twists for me to comment on, and because it was simply perfect. Marshall and Lily’s baby was born, aptly middle-named “Wait For It,” because we certainly were waiting a long time. I loved the I Am Spartacus […]
