    Man I just discovered and watched all of this show and I love it (I loved it 2 years ago but never followed it on commercial TV). Anyway the punchline is that it's well cast, the characters break archetypes in all the right ways and the lines are delivered well.

    EDIT: Also "The Playbook" is easily one of my favorite episodes.

    So taking bets now on how much longer they're going to drag out the mother plotline with it narrowed down this much.

    Pretty good ep. It's nice to know Barney's suit didn't die in vain.

    sadface that it's not Rachel Bilson.

    Also... Robin didn't really look as good behind the bartender as Stacy Keibler did. The pink thingy was just ... blah. Are they intentionally wardrobing Cobie Smulders badly, to play up Ted's dates or something?

    I thought Robin just gained a little weight or something. Not that she's bad looking by any means....just looks a little thicker or something

    I really dislike musical numbers chest-bursting out of regular shows. Way to labor the point, by the time they offered world peace or suits I was ready to change the channel.

    Also: it would have been funnier if Robin's wardrobe inexplicably changed to something more shot-girl-like when she got behind the bar, and then back when she was kicked out.

    Are you shitting me? The world peace section of the song had the funniest line in the episode:

    "I'm going to stop you right there. It's suits. Get your head out of your ass."

    Yeah. Yeah she does.

    Edit: And she's really pumping out the little ones. The first one was born before this season started, and she's expecting again.

    NOOOO! The more children the cast have, the sooner the show will be doomed. At least so far they've restrained themselves and deviously bluffed their way around it but sooner or later someone is going to have a kid, and then game over.

    As long as they don't go baby crazy and ruin the series. If the actors want to have kids, that's alright, but the only kids the show is allowed is Ted's! And only in their teenage forms.

    I stopped caring about Ted and his stupid holy grail around season 2. The supporting characters are so much better than the main guy it seems silly to spend so much time on the guy.

    Ted is more likable when he's dating someone. Especially when he was dating Robin.

    Ted needs to have a girl around to bring out his incessant quirkiness

    and I also find the actor kinda attractive. I'd date Ted. :)

    I liked Victoria a lot.

    Partly because the episode where he meets her at the wedding is by far the most resonant romantic episode of this show.

    That was a great episode. I used to hold out hope that somehow she would end up being the mother. :(

    I suppose it's still possible, people break up and then end up together after "growing up" all the time. That's pretty much the plot of a movie I watched recently, actually twice over the main dude meets back up with an old flame. That would be a neat little twist if the room-mate with the yellow umbrella turned out to be Victoria. With some globe-trotting under her belt to make her more worldly plus the good relationship they had might fill out the equation for Ted. I don;t remember if the narration ever said specifiaclly that Victoria is [maury] ...NOT THE MOTHER[/maury]

    The TedMosbyIsNotAJerk.com site referenced in the TV show is supposedly put up by Victoria, which seems odd because as far as Victoria knows Ted cheated on him with Robin. But it probably is someone completely new.

    Ugh, me and my wife cringed every time she opened her mouth. Really did not like the actress, whoever she was. She stuck out like a sore thumb.. Of course, with the main cast the way they are, I really don't think anyone would fit in very well unless they got lucky.

    No, didn't like Stella either (but maybe that's because I think she looks ridiculous having lost so much weight. Like her head is going to drag her over to the pavement)

    You know, I was really hoping that Stacy Keebler would be "blonde who is cock-blocking Barney" from a few seasons back.

    Ironically, my wife found Barney hotter when he suited down.

    Absurd. NPH exudes hotness no matter what his attire.

    Tedmosbyisajerk.com is the one the show referenced, and the one that they made. The site you're talking about was made by a fan.
