    I think this week's episode was the first time I've ever intentionally watched an episode of a TV show, and cut if off before finishing it. How freaking stupid.

    I always add 1-2 minutes for TV shows on my DVR because my television show's kept cutting off when the program wasn't complete :P

    Sorry, I meant I actively stopped watching because the episode was so stupid.

    Yeah, the rhyming nonsense was ridiculous. Why do we care about the story of Marvin's first memory, by the way?!?

    Barney's character has become too overused and ruined. I didn't think one could get Barney fatigue but... Well, I've Barney fatigue.

    They have to fill up 24 episodes somehow.

    Yet another reason the 13 episode format is much, much better. Even if they're only half an hour long.

    One episode, that's how long the wedding and the stuff leading up to it should have been.

    Maybe for a story like this, but for episodic shows like Archer and cartoons, the more, the better.

    episodic, yeah. Any procedural (like CSI, NCIS, etc) all benefit from more episodes, but when you're telling a story, 24 episodes a season for 8 seasons is...too much.

    Things are finally getting interesting:

    So, the Mother is finally at the wedding, and she and Ted are already indirectly connected. I like her. But that's probably because I like Lily. And the two characters might as well be conjoined twins. They act so similarly, and look so much the same. It's almost scary. And considering we have nine seasons of Ted looking for his bride, it's really creepy that he lands on the one person who resembles Lily more than anyone. Not her doppelganger, not Marshall, but this girl.

    And once again, I have no idea how many slaps were left, but I think Barney said "fourth", and it's been awhile, but I think there was....five?

    Think it is 5 slaps for the slap bet.

    I'm just tired of the show. At this point everyone but Robin and Ted have met Ted's wife, and been affected by her. I have no doubt Robin will meet her first and approve of her in some way, and it'll be Ted's way of putting Robin behind him. It's a trite way of trying to express this long-winded, unnecessary story of "how the stars aligned" for Ted to meet her.

    And even the slap thing seems old. They've held onto it too long. I literally blinked when it happened last night because I had to do a doubletake to remember Slapsgiving.

    Yeah, that's why I had to ask questions about it. It was drawn out so long, I can't even remember how many or when or whatever Marshall said about something that the last slap would be before x time.

    That's funny, I just wondered a couple of days ago randomly, where the remaining slap bets had gone and if I somehow missed it.

    I really like the mother (she's pretty!) from the train ride with Lily, though some of the "similarities" she has with Ted seem to be too contrived. There isn't a need for her to be a female carbon copy of him...

    I agree with anyone saying this season should have been about meeting the Mother in the first few episodes, then showing some of what happened later. I think we've seen quite enough of Farhampton Inn's setting....

    Is it just me, or is every episode this season basically just a "ok, let's flashback and talk about stuff that ISN'T actually happening right now, so we can bullshit recon a full season?

    It's simply painful to watch for the last two seasons. The jokes are unfunny, the writing is horrible. How is the cast even ok with acting so cheesy?
