How I Met Your Mother > How I Met Your Mother Review: Dog Days of Autumn > Comments Page 2
Wow, I must have been watching a different episode because to me was very average, at some point I was more interested in the buzzing fly in my room then what was happening on the screen.
The only thing that sorta saved this episode was Barney and Brower because that is so typical Barney and that was funny.
- While Jason Segel did a brilliant job, Marshall being Oprah under Lily's training.......blahhhhhhh, these guys used to be so much fun.
- Break-up with Victoria- sad because the show did not bother to show us anything awesome about their relationship like 6 years ago but glad because well of everything else above.
I thought this episode was kinda bad, actually. For one, the Ted-Victoria-Robin storyline was almost exactly out of the "Friends" handbook; Ross-Emily-Rachel. Two, it's all being unnecessarily dragged out. If it was the autumn of break-ups, why were Ted and Victoria the only ones to break up in that episode?
Even Marshall and Lily seemed a bit forced to me. The only thing I really enjoyed was Barney and Brover.
@BenReilly - he was definitely referring to Robin. Robin didn't even need a prompt; she instantly pretended to be a lesbian so that Barney could get laid.
This season has been a huge disappointment for me and Im sure for others as well. We were told in the Very First Episode that Robin is not the mother yet every season theres some kind of back and fourth about it. Its lazy storytelling. If it wasnt for Marshall and Barney this episode wouldnt have even been watchable.
And whoever the Mother ends up being Im sure Ill be disappointed because Ted has HORRIBLE taste in women.
god, this show needs a breathe of fresh air... if you would've told me what the storylines of this episode were before yesterday, I think I could've written the script word for word... lazy, unfunny, lazy, racist, uninspired, and LAZY! i am this close to washing my hands of this show... this close... solid performances from colbie and NPH save the day once again from being a steaming pile of you-know-what...
I liked some parts of this episode, like how Barney carried most of the good moments of this episode. And the way Robin recognized that Barney had a problem, and she wanted to help was great. But Lily and Marshalls awful In Living Color snaps thing was below what both of them are capable of funnywise. And the worse thing about this episode and the last season is Ted's obsession with Robin. Or maybe I should say the writer's obsession with the whole Ted/Robin relationship, but if they wanted it so bad they should have made her the mother instead of Aunt Robin. Because I have grown tired of this whole Ted not even Robin problem. I mean she has moved on, because she said no she wasn't in love with Ted. The only thing that keeps me going is that we know that because of the 8th season premiere Robin hasn't run off with Ted, and he has finally met the one. For being the main character of this show I have grown to dislike him to the point of rolling my eyes at everything he does.
Unfunny. I'm so disappointed
It's just gotten painful to watch.
To bad...i want so much for it to be good.
I absolutely adored marshall and lily in this episode. However, I am just plain sick and tired of the ted/robin thing. I groaned at my TV when this came up. Can't the show just move on seeing as all the fans already have?
All I want to know is what kind of dog is Brover? He is really cute!
This episode is amazing! It's the episode I've been waiting for since the season premiere. I loved:
- Marshall's inner goddess
- Marshall and Lily. Period.
- Brover/Barney = Broney?
- Victoria's heart breaking attempt not to cry at the bar.
What I hated:
The fact that Ted is an awful human being. He's still in love with Robin. No matter how much he denies it, he is. He wouldn't have made Marshall and Lily promise not to tell Robin. It'll probably come out before Barney and Robin's wedding. And that's why Robin is about to leave the wedding during the premiere.
Barney was calling Brover the best Wingman ever not Robin, because even with being taken away and back to his owner, Brover is still getting Barney booty.
COMPLETELY disagree with this review
I easily thought that this was one of, if not THE worst episodes of HIMYM to date.
Yeah, I agree with the other comments. This show is getting stale and running out of ideas. I don't even think Ted is a likable character any longer.
The show is getting just plain weird. The laugh sound was on every 5 seconds, even if the scene wasn't funny. It appears that the show is just trying to survive it last season.
Marshall part was stuipd and not funny but I love everything eles
Enough with the Ted/Robin crap already, that plot was worn thin seasons ago. Get on with the Barney/Robin sexy time!
really? can't we just put the ted/robin thing to bed?
Kill this show, please! Cobie Smulders needs to be on S.H.I.E.L.D.
Meh. Plot fatigue.
