Same dull and boring....
5 November 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

HIMYM's quality is continuously degrading. My hopes lighten up after seeing the fifth episode but after that every episode seems to be extended. They should never have come up with idea of premiering season 9 solely based on the wedding. Except two episodes, none of the episodes is at a par quality as of the previous seasons. With Season 9 coming, we all had high hopes but considering the 8 Seasons, I wish this one do not end in a manner that make us to forget all the fun we had watching the previous 8 seasons. HIMYM Season 9 was highly anticipated but this is not we were waiting for! Concluding, I want to say that HIMYM is losing its touch!
