I used to love How I Met Your Mother. Now it is sadly a show I watch more out habit than enjoyment. It’s not to say that there aren’t some bright spots here or there, but for the most part this show is long past its prime. The characters have become overly broad and often contradictory to what we know about them from earlier seasons. I was really hoping this season would be their last one. We could find out who the mother was and all move on with our lives. Unfortunately there is going to be one more season that I will feel compelled to watch. At least I don’t hate this show as much as I hated House by the end of its run.
Despite all of its failings in the past several seasons every once in awhile the show will pull out something like the end tag of last night’s show which reminds me why I loved it in the first place. This is what’s making me happy today.
