I doubt they will reveal how Ted meets the Mother until the series finale. The whole series is supposed to be Ted telling the story to his kids and building up to the meeting, right?

It'd be nice if they dropped more hints though.

I would think the show "hopes" to go up to the point to where the children are conceived imo, it'd be lame if it just stopped at meeting, at least courtship, and marriage ffs.

I want to know why Bob Saget does the narrating. It doesn't make sense that Ted's voice would change in 15-20 years.

Ted is Bob's self image. people often think they sound different than they really do.

I hope they either drop more hints about the mother, or reveal her, and then move on with the show until it gets cancelled. I would rather that than them revealing the mother when the series gets cancelled = rushing the entrance of the mother.

It doesn't have to be a story of how Ted meets his wife for the whole duration of the series. It'd be nice to know what happens after we see the mother and how she interacts with the gang, how the gang progresses, if Barney will eventually settle down, etc.

Exactly. It's not like they meet and get married right away, they could date/plan the wedding for 2 years.

best scene is in the episode where marshall takes robyn to his watering hole(that vikings bar). The end where they go to the hoser hut and he brings out the song by robyn sparkles


pretty sure the episode is Season 4, Disc 2, called "little minnesota" but not positive.

Personally - I find it odd that Season 6 will start airing on Sept. 20, however the Season 5 DVD is not released until Sept. 21.

Usually the DVD for the previous season is released the week before to allow people to purchase and 'catch-up' on any missed episodes. ( although in the day and age, everyone just PVR's)


Guess I will have to PVR the Season 6 premiere and then watch it after I watch Season 5 DVD, as I missed a couple of episodes ( Gonna have to watch 4-6 episodes of season 5 a day)

we probably wont find out until the show is cancelled/ending, unless the writers start runnning out of ideas for the current cast and feel it necessary to inject some freshness into the storyline. As it is, they are still going strong, so I don't see it coming for a while. He just broke up with the mom's roommate, it's going to be a while before he gets with her.

I'm getting anxious to find out. I think there were a few episodes last season that weren't that good so maybe they are running out of ideas. I kinda hope they don't ruin the show by dragging it on for too long. I mean, I love the show (mainly because of NPH) but it has to end some time.

The Perfect Week episode was amazing.


This was the best next to the marathon one and the book I think it was. The one where he had all those schemes to pick up girls and the last one was that scubadiver one.

Anyways, how weird is it that nph is gay in real life? Complete opposites. And how many more seasons are they doing I WANT TO SEE THE MOTHER ALREADY!

The Perfect Week is my favorite episde as well. Barney is the best, as a single guy I admire his tenacity. I don't know what episode it is, but their is one where he talks about his place, and how he has it set up so no women ever want to stay the night, after having a one night stand. The toilet seat automatically goes up, a single bedsheet on the bed, only one pillow, only one towel in the bathroom, no food or snacks, and if they are still around he will expose them to the wall of porn to scare them off...Lengendary.

I also like how the show is more realistic than most shows and focuses on a younger generation. They rarely have a scene without someone drinking booze, and often are partying it up. They hang at a bar, not a coffee shop. Struggle with work and life decisions.

My favorite show, for sure.

Rachel Bilson in more eps = potential meeting of the mother??? From the shots it looks like a chance encounter at the bar may result in finally meeting the roommate. I'm looking forward to this season for sure.

Rachel Bilson aka the Mother's room-mate is filming an episode for this upcoming HIMYM season. So we are inching closer to the reveal i think. I now notice this has already been mentioned...

Shame to say, this show has still not gone stale for me. I've seen all 6 season multiple times over, and by multiple, i mean at least 5 times each. No joke. Favorite episodes have to be any of the Thanksgivings and slapbets. The original slapbet with the Robin video is forever my favorite.

But i'd have to say this is far away from realism or real life. Come on, would Robin's show even be syndicated? Would a penis building ever go un-noticed by an entire office? Who jumps rooftops in the middle of the night? What does Barney even do - to make what seems like millions, work as little as possible, have time to be a taxi man in the middle of the day to pick up women?? Ted's life with stella makes it to the big screen only to be a blockbuster? The show is many levels of great, but being real is not one of them and that is the essence of why the show is great.
