How I met your Mother played very close to heart for me, as I am/was the same age as the characters on the show and going through similar issues. So I found this a highly relatable show.
So what did I think of it? I think the first 6 seasons hit off very well with lots of twists and cracks that worked pretty well. However as the show got older, the running gags started getting less and less funny and what worked before just was not doing it as well as before. Seasons 7 & 8 were a little broken and used ALLOT of recycled and stale material.
What I do give the show credit for is maturing the characters and letting them live with bad decisions and showing their long term consequences/rewards.
As for Season 9:
WHAT THE F**K? First off the 24-esque format was cute but just did not it the flow of the previous seasons. A nice idea that could easily have been done another way.
It‘s funny how this WHOLE season was focused on Robin & Barney‘s wedding, yet for the finale they break up? I do see this as gutsy as this is an accurate reflection on real life. It does not matter how perfect people seem for each other, it still can fall apart and things rarely turn out the way we expect them to. What I do have a problem with is that Barney and Robin are still friends after that. After all that they can just move on, just like that? Don‘t really buy it, but it is a bit plausible.
I really did love how it took Barney having a daughter to truly turn him around. That I believe, but, WHERE THE F**K was that story and its build up? It would have made more sense to use that being the focal point of this season. *sigh* It feels like they seriously skipped over a great story arc there.
I really do wonder what the producers and writers were smoking when they thought it was a good idea to kill off „the Mom.“ Seriously?! WTF?!? After all that build up and then finally revealing her in the final season and they kill her off just so they could use some stock footage they shot 7 years earlier? It means they had more or less already decided right at the start that this was more or less how it was going to end (maybe not the death, but Ted winding up with Robin.) WTF? WTF? WTF? What a load of hoarses**t.
THANK GOODNESS for the alternate ending that is on the DVD box set. THAT, was how it should have ended! Why the f**k they did not use that ending in the first place is beyond me.
Aside from a bumpy end, I still love the show and I am grading it here on the show as a whole and not just Season 9. On it‘s own I would have scored season 9 as a 6. But the show as a whole gets an 8.
If I had never seen the original ending and just the alternate ending, I would have score the show a 9. But I can‘t unsee what I saw. (Feels like the Mass Effect 3 ending all over again.)… Full Review »
Latest episode continues to dive deeply into veiled liberal misleading topics. For instance the 'false report' on the Canadian pipeline (i.e. Keystone), the appearance that all agree on Global warming by man, and the hype of going over to war with Iran. Also the family is too perfect (kids asking super intelligent questions) with the perfect and super moral husband. Lastly there is no reality of current affairs where failure can and does occur. MS solves everything...… Full Review »
The first Series was really slow. The second has me captivated and i am suffering from Sleep deprivation due to catching up last night.
There are points when things happen and i genuinely feel tense.
This is great, if you want a good story (albeit with some holes) then give the second season a try.… Full Review »
This show is awesome! All these negative reviews must be written by people who take life to seriously. This show isn’t meant to be deep, meaningful or sophisticated. It’s supposed to be fun and this is where this show succeeds. There are also some very comical moments such as the zombie stuck in the wheel arch or the Mormon zombies or the death by liberty bell scene. This stuff is gold honestly! If you like zombies and fun, please ignore what the naysayers are saying and check it out.… Full Review »
This fourth season of SG-1 is less impressive than the third. But it hasn't lost it's mojo yet, it's still an impressive sci-fi show with much action and spectacular events.
The average score for each episode is: 7.93
