Editorial Reviews

The more things change, the more things get interesting in this all-new hilarious season of How I Met Your Mother. Ted’s (Josh Radnor) search for “the one” continues while Marshall and Lily (Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan) hope to become parents, Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) makes an uproariously awkward attempt to find his real father, and Robin (Cobie Smulders) finally feels like a true New Yorker. Featuring epic guest stars like Katy Perry and Jorge Garcia as “The Blitz,” Season Six is filled with just plain awesomeness.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Season That Tried To Get Mature May 16, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
How I Met Your Mother is a great show. Let's get that out of the way first. It has excellent character development, clever humor and an original way of telling its story. With that in mind, I thought Season 6 was the first of the show in which maybe the writers were a little misguided and a little short on ideas. I'll start with the positives:

(Will contain spoilers if you haven't seen all of Season 6)

If you're considering purchasing this season, I'll give you five episodes that absolutely make it worth it:
"Big Days" (episode 6.01)
"Subway Wars" (episode 6.04)
"Blitzgiving" (episode 6.10)
"Legendaddy" (episode 6.19)
"Hopeless" (episode 6.21)

It's no coincidence that two of my favorite episodes of the season are the only two episodes John Lithgow played in. His portrayal of Barney Stinson's awkward long lost father is absolute dynamite. I can't rave enough about how well his character was drawn up. It made sense from a real life standpoint not only having Barney's father fail to live up to his son's expectations, but to turn him into a nervous wreck determined to please his son. John Lithgow stole the show in his two episode appearance, and both were vintage, quality 'How I Met Your Mother.' I really hope his character is recurring 'til the end of the series.

"Subway Wars" is the best episode of the season and one of the best in the series, if you ask me. Not only is it hilarious, but it really personifies what each character has brought to the table over the course of the series. Marshall's folk song was brilliant, Ted's need to convince strangers he's a good professor is priceless, and I always appreciate an appearance from Ranjit.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Season of Development June 30, 2011
Format:DVD
Season 6 is, to me, fundamentally different from all other seasons of HIMYM thus far. As with all seasons, Ted has his lady interest, in this case Zoey, who is a polar opposite of Ted yet ingratiates herself briefly into the gang's social group. Zoey is a radical protestor who, it turns out, has set her sights on protesting the destruction of the Arcadian, a building which is being destroyed to allow for the construction of a new Goliath National Bank HQ, which, ironically, Ted has been chosen to design. Nonetheless, Ted is his usual self, falling in love without heeding the potential consequences. Clearly, this provides for interesting tension over the course of the season as the two battle their feelings for each other. Oh. Did I forget to mention? Zoey's married.

This season contains heartbreak and fundamental events in the lives of some of the characters. Marshall is plagued by a loss even as he attempts to conceive with Lilly. Robin attempts to get over a brutal break-up with flame Don, while Barney may just be turning human.

The humor retains top form in this season. However, it is not akin to the humor of the opening seasons, as a shift has taken place in order to emphasize the storyline of the season as this show draws to an inevitable close in the (near?) future. Some development is made regarding Ted's future wife, yet most of this season's development centers around Barney. Confronted with his father for the first time, Barney is forced to make difficult choices and just may be growing into a more sensitive individual, both romantically and emotionally.

On the whole, this season is as good as the others and, for me, was better than any season since the first two.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mostly disappointing February 6, 2013
Even though I still love HIMYM, the cleverness has taken a beating in recent years and the notion of an endgame is increasingly distant. Even though season 8 promises that Ted will meet the mother by the end (and they mean it this time), season 6 has an incredibly loose relationship with the show's mythology. In service of the mother plot, there's a scene at the beginning and the end of the season concerning where Ted met the mother; however, the rest of the season meanders about without too much concern for that conclusion.

Still, that conclusion shouldn't matter. The show has always been 15% mother storyline and 85% solid sitcom. Sadly, without the mother anchoring the show, the goofier moments have gotten less funny and the feeling of dragging along just becomes more profound. How many stories does this show have to tell about Ted growing up or Barney learning that he can't be a player all of his life? Does the show have to dangle plots in our faces that have already been dismissed as impermanent?

Even though this season has some great moments (including Barney finally meeting John Lithgow as his father) and some groaning miscalculations (like the countdown to Marshal's dad dying), the major problem with this season can be summed up in one word - Zoe.

The actress had the thankless job of being a scold in House even when she was supposed to be the moral conscience. In HIMYM, she goes from an adversary to a girlfriend but most of the stories concern how she and Ted can't get along. There's one payoff in which Ted realizes that Lily and Marshall support each other and he misses that in his relationship. She is a pretty good actress but the show writes her as an impossible shrew and the fact that she is not the mother, there is no reason to get emotionally invested in her.

This is still a pretty good show but it is showing signs of wear by this point and this season may be worth watching, but it's not worth buying.
