I'm all for this, but only if it's 'How I Met Your Father'.

People will say that the show has jumped the shark, but I say it's about to jump the shark. Don't extend the series just because it's getting ratings.

/Last season of Scrubs
//The Office after the wedding or Michael leaving.

We already know that Ted's daughter is born in 2015. If they extend the series to a ninth season, he will meet the mother in 2014. Talk about a good advertisement for safe sex...
 
2012-07-16 12:28:41 PM  
I like the more risque version of that show: How I Meat Your Mother.

since i've watched exactly 17 minutes of this show overall, i can safely say "this"

not being that "i don't like popular things" guy, just haven't ever gotten into this show

#33 in the continuing series of 'Stupid People Make Stupid Decisions'.

Amazing the way they hired a gay(nttawwt) to play a womanizer.

That's some mighty fine stunt-casting there, Lou.

I like the show, but everytime it flashes to him talking to his kids it kills it. Those kids are going to need some massive therapy after having heard about every one of their father's sexual escapades before he met their mother. They should call the last season "How Child Protection Took Away My Children".

And of course they have to have one more season so that said "womanizer" can finally admit that his previous ways were just masking his homo-osity and now he's glad to come out of the closet and live his true gay life....

/you think that's NOT in the future script plans? Puhleeeeze....

Well, NPH wasn't out of the closet when they chose him and, frankly, he has been hilarious.

thanks wikipedia for pointing out to me that jason segel isn't the main character. that's what i get for only catching about 2/3 of an episode total
 
2012-07-16 12:45:32 PM  
There's no way they can renew the show if none of the actors are willing to come back. Jason Segal has no reason in the world to come back, and Cobie Smulders is part of the Marvel package now so she's pretty set regardless. I love the show, but the only way I'd ever watch a ninth season is if they wrap up Ted's story at the end of Season 8 and just have Season 9 be Barney's adventures. "How I Met Your Mother, and Yours, and Then Yours, and We'll Get to Yours Later.:"

That can be easily resolved. Just do something like what happened in Bender's Big Score that changed Fry's voice to Lars's voice.

I have no problem with this. Especially since there are plans to have the mother be on the show for a season before they get married. Almost like the kids won't know as soon as she is mentioned that her parents just met.

And it can't be Victoria. It was mentioned that she was a student at the college and she was roommates with Ted's failed date who went lesbian.

My big question: How can Two and a Half Men keep going? Jake is now a full man who joined the Army, and it was just beyond pathetic watching Alan spend a season trying to stay in the house. If ever there was an example of beating a dead horse, that's it.

When they showed his daughter being born, I was certain it was a signal that the show had one more season left. I guess it's hard to shut down a TV series when it is still doing well.

It will be interesting to see how quickly they end the show after he actually meets the mother. Perhaps it's the last episode.
 
2012-07-16 12:49:18 PM  
It's gradually morphed into the Barney Show anyway. Ted is a titanic douche who whines about never finding the one, and is still hung up on Robin after seven seasons.

They've been making around $100k an episode for the last few years. Those are some pretty good reasons for the cast to continue.

did jake really go in the army?
i started watching reruns, and then new episodes, a couple of years ago...watched probably 3/4 or more of them. i watched the first episode post-charlie, and haven't bothered to watch another new episode since then.

yes, i actually like that show, prior to charlie's departure. only really good thing about that 1st new episode was charlie's funeral and having all those exes bad-mouth him

It was always the Barney Show. NPH and Allison Hannigan totally carried that show the first couple seasons and Ted has ALWAYS been a titanic douche.

I just love how every HIMYM fan has the same consensus on the show's main character. If you really watch, the whole mother thing is an annoying distraction. It's always been about what Lily, Marshall and Barney are doing.

Add another vote to that one (probably got the time on the nose too). Also, every time I see Jason Segel, I want to punch him in the face. I don't care if he's nearly a foot taller than me.
 
2012-07-16 01:07:40 PM  
Fan of the show but the premise of meeting the mother has become stale imo. After being drawn out for this long I just can not envision a scenario that will have the payoff to be worth it. We have been told though word of god that it's not Robin so whatever.

/Unless it's Lily. However I suspect she has been referred to as Aunt Lily multiple times.
 
2012-07-16 01:17:08 PM  
Ted is clearly the worst storyteller in the history of story-telling. Enough exposition Dad. Get to the farking point.
 
2012-07-16 01:18:24 PM  
More Barney. Less Ted.

Huh? He has been out for a long long time already.

Interesting sidenote - check out the Nerdist interview with NPH. The host and NPH both went out with the same girl. Neil was lamenting his inability to get anywhere with her.
 
2012-07-16 01:21:13 PM  
Lifelong fan of the show here:

Ted is a douche etc., But seriously they have so much set up i think they are writing themselves into a corner in regards to the mother. My dream scenario is he "meets" the mother next season, then perhaps the ninth season is build up to marriage/she geta preggers/climactic plot point. Long story short they need to end it soon while at least most the fan base still cares. As someone who gets fairly invested in my shows, if my attention is waning, they are in trouble.

Spoilers (maybe): im rather interested in where they are going with the victoria thing. Always loved her, and kinda liked how they never truely shut the door on her like they have the many, many countless other girls.
 
2012-07-16 01:23:32 PM  
As long as we all admit that it's "watch Neil Patrick Harris be hilarious", I'm OK with my wife wanting to watch this show with me.

Le Grand Inquisitor: My dream scenario is he "meets" the mother next season, then perhaps the ninth season is build up to marriage/she geta preggers/climactic plot point.


How about he meets some woman for the first time, says "hi" and the series abruptly ends?
 
2012-07-16 01:26:58 PM  
I'm pretty sure that the mother will end up being Robin's blond friend from the very first episode. She was the first person Ted saw when he turned around at the bar and said "Ok, I'm ready, where is she?" Then the crowd shifted and Ted focused on Robin. Ted did something nice for her without ever meeting her; he let Robin toss a drink in his face just to make her happy. We saw the same actress again in another episode in season 1. She had the same line in both episodes - "What's taking so long?" I'm going to say the writers were going meta - she wants to know why Ted is taking so long to tell the damn story. The set up at the end of the first episode is that Ted would not have met the mother without meeting Robin, and having the mother be an old friend of Robin's would make validate that claim.

I suspect she is going to show up as a guest at Barney's wedding, and that's when she and Ted will formally meet.
 
2012-07-16 01:27:00 PM  
Having the Barnacle get married (to Quinn or Robin or whoever else) is this show's jumping the shark.
 
2012-07-16 01:29:53 PM  
I want it to have a good end, but i'm not sure if it's in the cards if they keep delaying it.

Love the show, huge fan. It's gone through a bunch of different ups and downs (Zoey was Ted's worst girlfriend). But it's been one of the best shows i've seen in a while, and got me to try my hand at a few other shows like it (and actually liked them).

But i want to see the Mother, and have a solid season of Ted hitting on her, screwing it up for himself, getting neurotic and then finally pulling his shiat together. She then finally agrees to go steady w/ Ted (not even marriage), and then bam Bob Sagat says 'and that kids, is how i met your mother."

DONE.

/won't happen.

I have investigateed that. The production agency hired her based on her modeling work in ads. They gave me the name of the advertising agency. They gave me the name of the photographer. The photographer, a Spaniard, used a Wilkes-Barre modeling agency. The agency gave me the following information. Deborah Shoshlefski. 142 South Windsor Lane. Dead. Car accident. Case closed.

I thought part of the "charm" of Ted's character is that he is kind of a whiny douche. The other characters make references to it all the time.

There was an episode a couple of seasons ago where Ted was dating a girl and liked all of her books (Pablo Neruda) and returns an umbrella (your mothers umbrella he tells the kids) but finds out that they are all her roommates things. That is the mother

He makes that case in the very first episode. He pretty much sucks at all this stuff, it's the dorky dad stuff that he excels at.
 
2012-07-16 02:00:32 PM  
Godammit. This is my favorite traditional sitcom of perhaps all time. But by this point no one could possibly measure up to the hype of the mother. Just let it be Barney's half sister as one Farjer suggested and have done with it.

You can't kick anyone except Robin or Lily off (they took hiatuses before it seems), just let it have an end. The journey will still stand up.

This right here. They've already "shown" the mother, via her going into her bedroom, obscured and wrapped in a towel. All Ted saw was her left foot, ankle and calf.
