Probably The Worst Episode So Far ..., 19 March 2012
Author: rebecky14 from Australia

I, like many other people on IMDb, am a huge fan of How I Met Your Mother. I've been a fan ever since the show started, back in 2005, when I was just eight. I've always loved the blend of humour and sarcasm as well as the amazing characters. Barney has pretty much become close to my favourite character in any TV series or movie. The show's always been consistently great as well.

So it was a mega disappointment to see this episode. I'm not sure what went wrong, but it was very disjointed, like someone had done a bad editing job. The plot was all over the place and pretty bad. And I barely laughed at all, which is a rare thing for me.

It's not just this episode though. How I Met Your Mother has been decreasing in quality as of late, and my guess is that it's because the show has now reached it's seventh season. It's started to become less about the actual story of how Ted met their mother and more about random things that don't tie into the plot at all!

The show is slowly but steadily running out of laughs and good plot points as well. In the first couple of seasons, the humour was brilliant, the stories great and even the slightly corny sentimental sum-up at the end of each episode was still nice. Now, everything feels rushed and stale, and this episode is a perfect example of that.

How I Met Your Mother is getting old fast. As a loyal fan, I'll keep watching, but I really hope it gets better soon.
