    Default The How I Met Your Mother thread

    Hi guys! I'm not sure if this exists already, but if it does just close this.
    If you haven't watched season 8 or even season 7 and don't want any spoilers you should be careful here.

    So this is a thread to discuss and state our opinions on HIMYM!!! You can say everything, from favorite character to favorite episode, of coursea bit of explanation would be good. Are you enjoying season 8? Why did you start watching? Where do you watch it? Any favorite moments? Himym is possible one of the most famous tv shows and I'm surprised I didn't see it around here unless I missed it or it's somewhere else.

    Well, to start off with my opinions.
    My favorite character is Barney, for obvious reasons, he's hilarious and I absolutely love him! xD I love every episode about him, especially the Playbook, the     Spoiler:- Season 7-8:
    , the episodes about his dad, absolutely everything!
    I have several favorite episodes. "Subway Wars", the "The Playbook", "Robin 101", "Sweet Taste of Liberty" , "Blitzgiving", all the slap bet episodes,     Spoiler:- Season 8 episode:
    and many others.     Spoiler:- Season 8:
    . Favorite moments have to be the slap bets, and basically anytime Barney hooks up with girls, but Marshall and Lily moments are also very funny. I watch it on the internet since I can't watch it on TV because I am not American/have american tv.

    Yeh, basically you can discuss anything about it here.

    EDIT: Since most people posting here are watching the season 8 as it airs there's really no need to add the spoiler tags anymore

    This season hasn't been off to the greatest start seriously. You can tell the Godparent episode was just terrible. While the other ones besides the end of the first episode were just plain boring. Hoping for an episode this season that shows shades of Classic HIMYM like Ducky Tie did last season.

    Two episodes after that one is the Ducky Tie episode. A true HIMYM classic. That episode could definitely hang with the old seasons of HIMYM.

    HA I wasn't sure how many fans this show had left, most people just complain about it now. I've been enjoying this season cuz I ship RobinxBarney and look forward to see what happens between them in the future, they are kind of like RossxRachel of Friends.

    Ash fan. Luffy fan. Gintoki fan-Gintama. Endou fan-Inazuma Eleven.

    I'm not sure if shipping is the right word, since it's not imagined; it's a real relationship and real chemistry. poor, ted though. my dude gotta get over robin

    and ross and Rachel? you're comparing these 2 couples synonymously? as phoebe would say "[laugh] please"

    I enjoy the show overall, but really, I'm ready for us to meet Ted's eventual wife already. After eight seasons, his story arc is beginning to feel really tired. I mean, how much longer can the show really go at this point with putting him in one doomed relationship after another? That's why I hope this season is the last one.

    that's not gonna happen
        Spoiler:


    plus, they will probably say which season is the last, which i think will be 9, for reasons i said above and cuz i don't think it has the fanbase to make it to season 10, though i secretly wish it could cuz himym is definitely the friends of this generation, which i have yet to find a thread for.

    btw, @charizardfan, fancy running into you here

    They're actually not entirely sure whether there will be a ninth season or not...I think they're waiting for midseason ratings to see how to wrap this season up.

    I personally think that Ted will meet the mother at the end of this season, and the question will become whether they make an entire season of getting to know the mother, or if they'll end it with the fatal meeting and then cut to credits.
    I am not worried, Harry. I am with you.

    with the meeting of the mother, i really can't say what they're gonna do. if they end it there, then it's kinda anticlimactic, but if they keep going, then the story's? gonna get really dull without the purpose of trying to find out who the mother is

    but these are the ratings:

    EPS 801: 8.84 (million views)
    EPS 802: 8.17
    EPS 803: 7.82
    EPS 804: 7.93
    EPS 805: 7.22
    EPS 806: 7.95
    EPS 807: 7.45


    so if the ratings keep going like this, i guess it'll only be 9 seasons. at this point i hope they end it after ted meets the mother cuz i loved the teaser at the end of episode 801

    And, yeah, it's pretty certain that Ted will be meeting "the mother" at the end of this season. The question is whether or not we'll meet her, or if they'll find a way to drag that out for a 9th season (which I'd be against). I don't think we'll be seeing them actually dating, though. The show is more about seeing Ted develop into the kind of person who married "the mother", not her necessarily.

    after a lot, LOT of research, i understand why this could be and is most likely the last season. the truth is i think himym is too good for 8 seasons. everybody loves raymond did 9. friends did 10. cheers did 11. himym can do 9, since that seems to be the minimum of every classic show.

    anyways, the writers are happy either way if season 8/9 is the last one.

    Tonight's episode was the best of the season so far.

    Edit: Just realized they messed up severely with Scooter. Specifically his name. Season 2 it was Bill and now it's Jeff? WTF?

    any episode featuring robin sparkles, even for just a minute, is a win for me. lol the way she accepted that trophy. marhsall's note card jokes were a funny plus

    yeah i thought that was awesome. i can't believe that "the guy robin likes" was on a date with you-know-who (whew! no.spoilers) I'm truly unconvinced by it

    I really lost track of this show. I only really have time to catch the odd rerun now and again.

    Question - do we need the spoiler tags? The episode aired already, and we can probably assume that most people who are going to be posting in this thread have had the chance to see it. Besides, nothing happens that really requires them.

    Last Monday's episode was good, but I honestly enjoyed the Ted/Lily/Marshall subplot more than the main one. This is where HIMYM's storytelling methods betray it a bit. We know what the end result is going to be, thanks to the S7 finale and the S8 premiere, so a lot of the stuff in between just feels like padding done just to waste time. I get that it's necessary, but it's still a "when are they going to get to the fireworks factory!?" thing for me. Still amusing enough, though. Robin's hatred of Partice was my favorite part of the episode.
