One member of the orchestra is complaining that the pizza Ted promised is not going to happen. He may be right: Ted is so much preoccupied with Robin and the rain quest that he probably forgot all about the pizzas. See more »


Penelope mentions having slept with Barney twice in the back of his car, but in "Arrivederci, Fiero" it is revealed that Barney doesn't own a car and in fact cannot even drive. However, Barney often lies to women and could easily have told her that some random car was actually his. They slept in the car; she never said that he drove it. See more »


Ted Mosby: Robin, I've sort of said this already. I mean, I've half said it. I've tried to say it, and I've said it badly. So this is me. Just saying it. With strings. I'm crazy about you. I think we should be together. What do you say?
Robin Scherbatsky: Yes. No. Maybe.
Ted Mosby: Those are the three options.

Jason Segel Knoks It Out Of The Park In Season One Comes To An End
20 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's the last episode in the first season of How I Met Your Mother and I'm not liking where things were headed.

Plot In A Paragraph: Ted decides to make one last romantic gesture to win Robins heart, but unfortunately so does Sandy Rivers. Whilst Marahall finds out about the art scholarship that Lily applied for.

I can't believe the powers that be decided to go ahead with the Lily's cold feet storyline!! Excellent acting all round by Alyson Hannigan and in particular Jason Segel. It was heartbreaking. The scene at the end, where he is sat in the rain is superb acting that required no words.

It was no surprise to see Ted end the season with Robin, I called that from the minute they sent the awesome Victoria off to Germany. So they not only wrecked my favourite Ted relationship, but now the best relationship in the show (other than Barney and his suits)

Despite some average episodes, I've enjoyed most of the first season. Usually an episode that feature Neil Patrick Harris's character Barney Stinson heavily. And it's mainly due to him, that I'll see how the second season goes.
