Storyline

Since Marshall had been busy with work, a stressed Lily singlehandedly planned their housewarming party, and was worried that it was going to be a disaster. Her premonition came true. Over a five minute period during the party, a series of events that took place simultaneously in the living room, dining room and kitchen resulted in what to the untrained eye looked like a confusing mess if knowledge of only what was happening in one of those three rooms was known, but made total sense when viewed from all three rooms combined. Some of the issues and topics of conversation that led to the disaster included Robin's confrontational nature versus Ted's non-confrontational nature, Marshall pondering whether he should refuse boss Garrison Cootes' demand that they return to work in the middle of the party, Mickey's new beekeeping hobby, what happened to a plate of vegan spring rolls, why Lily didn't want anyone to eat the block of Gouda that Marshall served, and Barney's even more than usual ...

What is going on?
9 February 2012 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

How I met your mother was simply breath-taking when it first started, and the way its story line always summed up together has always natural and fitted the bill as a sit-com. But what all the previous reviews mention is true: it is abysmal and what comes together doesn't make it funny anymore, the Barney humor has exhausted out and I only watch it because I, like other HIMYM fans, am loyal.

The entire 7th season is dull and completely unfunny. The humor has dried off and even its sarcasm doesn't have any effects on me. Every episode from the beginning is only built around something which is irrelevant to the main plot of the show. HIMYM needs to step up its game and focus on what actually matters. I get one or two episodes can sometimes stray off for fun but the entire season? This show needs to get back to the main point of the show, how did Ted meet the mother of his children.

As a loyal audience (I have re-watched dozens of episodes from previous seasons and still enjoy them!), I am really hoping that this show gets back on track on its feet and finally have some significant development to the main characters and Ted's wife and stop making episodes that doesn't have any progression at all per se. With the continuous dullness this show is having it will eventually fall out of a category that I will even bother coping on, and I'm sure I speak not only for myself. We need relevant progression!
