    The main problem with a conceit like this is that once the writers become more concerned with capturing another season than with the integrity of the plot, the whole edifice starts to look a little shaky. Another issue is that we've heard half of these jokes before ad initum and they are quickly losing their amusement value.

Another issue is that we've heard half of these jokes before ad initum and they are quickly losing their amusement value. Even Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel are starting to sound predictable. Having started well with that tantalising clip of a "future wedding", the writers almost singularly fail to follow up on the promise of developing the core storyline, meaning that far too many of these episodes feel like filler, and not especially distracting at that...

    As with all CBS shows, mediocre is the only way to describe it. Sub-par writing and sub-par acting make How I Met Your Mother like all other CBS sitcoms, lazy, unoriginal, and unfunny. Neil Patrick Harris is very overrated, as are all other leads. Stay away if you can. It won't be detrimental to your intelligence, but it will be to your sense of humor.

    The writers seem to have been trying too hard to make this show funny, and they are failing to do so as the script is not as funny as it was in the earlier seasons of the show. All of them are bad actors & the series is only successful because of Barney. HIMYM should have ended in this season.
    ''HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER will never be as funny as FRIENDS''
