Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): In the Halloween episode in season 1, Robin says she never played any team sports. Just Tenis. However in a later season she mentions how her dad caught her kissing a hockey team mate.See more »
Lily:[Lily sees Barney hitting on Claudia] Oh, hell. No!
[grabs Barney by the ear and yanks him away from Claudia]
Lily:Claudia is getting married tomorrow and so help me God if I catch you even so much as breathing the same air as her I will take those peanuts you're trying to pass off as testicles and I will squeeze them so hard until your eyes pop out and then I'll feed them to you like grapes.
Barney:[confused] Wait... my eyes? Or my testicles?
Lily:[pause, thinks about it] One of each!

Until season 5, epic. After that, avoid at all cost., 29 November 2013
Author: Peter Maahn Sterkenburg from Denmark

This review will fall into two pieces, inspired by the latest 2 episodes ( seriously guys, what the f... is going on with the musical bits and ridiculous rhyming).

Until season 5, somewhere mid-season 6: some of the best comedy I have ever seen. Hilarious, right on the spot, with great one-liners and characters. Absolutely wonderful.

Anything after that: what the f... went wrong? Lame jokes, terrible musical bits, awful dialogue, just plain awful TV. And yet somehow, I am still watching, just to see the last episode. Com' on guys, this should have finished 3-4 seasons ago: on your epic legendary peakness.

Thanks for all the wonderful laughs, but wow, you really overstayed your stay!!
