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.

If it was even remotely like real life it wouldn't be remotely entertaining. That's the point of sitcoms; take real life situations, and take them to one extreme or another... also, i can't wait to see the failed Canadian TV variety show with Alan Thicke and Robin. It should be Legen... wait for it... dary.

"The Playbook: Suit Up. Score Chicks. Be Awesome." By Barney Stinson will be available for sale Oct. 5. And I can tell you that the play called Brian's Friend actually works...

Thats what i'm arguing. Some other guy said whats great about this show is that it is realistic like how they drink beer in a bar. Which is why i said the story lines are far from realistic and listed outrageous examples from the show. Reality TV isn't even realistic, nothing much on TV is nowadays.

Jennifer Morrison will be joining the HIMYM cast! I loved her in House... I was so disappointed when the writers wrote her off the show. Glad to see her join a show like this. I'm excited for this season!

I like the show, I watch it and all that but...

how long can they drag it out...when will Ted finally meet the mother?

It's like the new version of Friends Ross/Rachel conundrum.

Why people read signatures:
  • It is an acceptable way to stare at women.
  • Allows people to have a counter-argument by insulting what is in a persons signature (pooh-pooh fallacy).
  • Allows people to show that they like a man and they put colourful things around the picture of a man(usually a hockey player :P).
  • To watch a funny GIF or a funny pic.
  • Funny Quote or Saying
So I have no clue why are you reading my signature!

Solid season 6 premiere! I definitely missed Barney! I laughed so hard when he looked back to see the girl. Why was Rachel Bilson in the episode? Hopefully there was a reason she was in the episode today and we find out as the season unravels. Really confused on the wedding situation, it could be Rachel Bilson's character's wedding? But then why would Ted be the best man? Confuuuuusseeedd! Anywhoo, so stoked that the show is back!

LOL It's not top secret and I'm sure others probably think the same. But I think that it's Barney's and Robin's wedding.
