Unlike most sitcoms, How I Met Your Mother benefits from watching an entire season all at once. Not only do episodes routinely refer to past or future events, but the show's humor depends on what the five main characters themselves find funny. In fact, How I Met Your Mother is practically an analysis of how shared humor forges a group identity, as the friendship of these five hapless New Yorkers is held together by in-jokes and mutual history--to the point that it's almost impossible for anyone else to join their tight little tribe, including new viewers. This makes watching any single episode a little off-putting; the show doesn't seem that funny and the characters seem derangedly attached to each other. But with each episode you watch, you get drawn in more and more until you find sweeping declarations, the ducky tie, long-term bets, "The Night We," and pregnancy brain just as compelling as they do. --Bret Fetzer

The irony is that in most cases the writers will start running out of ideas in latter seasons. In this case, I think the writers have too many fresh ideas and filmed an abundance of stories in Season 7 that either weren't necessary or felt completely rushed. My biggest problem with How I Met Your Mother's seventh season is that the show tried to fit about three seasons of stories into a 24 episode arc.

The first thing I look at in a season of expedited stories is the relationship aspect of the show. Robin, for example, started dating Kevin in the fifth episode of the season, 'Field Trip.' By the sixteenth episode, 'The Drunk Train', Kevin proposed to Robin. If I am to follow a timeline that runs parallel to the air dates of the episodes, Robin and Kevin dated for just over four months. Is it impossible? No, not really. Improbable, not impossible.
Barney's story with Quinn, though, just might be too far beyond believable. Noteworthy is the fact that we're talking about the quintessential womanizer for a good portion of the show. I liked the direction Barney's character was headed in. I thought his reconciliation with his father in Season 6 was a good turning point for him and a plausible explanation for his sudden change of lifestyle.Read more ›
This season truely makes Ted look like a complete loser as he is desperately chasing girls he's already been with and the show's producers run through the ted and robin & barney and robin thing yet again, a sure sign the original ideas are definately drying up.
Season 7 kicked off in the fall of 2011 with main characters: Josh Radnor as Ted Mosby, Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson, Cobie Smulders as Robin Scherbatsky, Alyson Hannigan as Lily Aldrin, and Jason Segel as Marshall Eriksen. As the series progresses it is also picking up more and more celebrity cameos [ehem, did you know that the voice of "future Ted" in the precaps is actually Bob Saget?]; Season 7 features guest appearances from Marshall Manesh as Ranjit, Chris Romano as Punchy, Nazanin Boniadi as Nora, Wayne Brady as James Stinson, Frances Conroy as Loretta Stinson, Alexis Denisof as Sandy Rivers, Kal Penn as Kevin, Becki Newton as Quinn Garvey, Chris Elliott as Mickey Aldrin, Vicki Lewis as Dr. Sonya, Martin Short as Garrison Cootes, Bill Fagerbakke as Marvin Eriksen, Cristine Rose as Virginia Mosby, Ray Wise as Robin Scherbatsky, Sr., Suzie Plakson as Judy Eriksen, Ellen D. Williams as Patrice, Ashley Williams as Victoria, Brendan Robinson as Ned, Conan O’Brien as extra, Katie Holmes as Naomi, “Weird Al” Yankovic as himself, and Ernie Hudson as himself.
SEASON 7: Season 6 came to a close with the news that Marshall and Lily are expecting a baby.Read more ›
