How I Met Your Mother: The Complete Season 7 opens with Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) getting married, but you won't find out who he's marrying until the very last episode--which is pretty quick for this show, given that after seven seasons we still don't know who the mother of Ted's future children is. Or do we? The season concludes with Ted (Josh Radnor) hand in hand with someone, but is she really the long-awaited woman of his dreams? Robin (Cobie Smulders) realizes she still has feelings for Barney, leading her to sabotage his flowering relationship with another woman. And Marshall (Jason Segel) and Lily (Alyson Hannigan) are pregnant! When is the baby due? In the last episode of the season, of course! These season-long storylines are the counterpoint to the quick flashbacks, flash-forwards, sideways jaunts, and stories-within-stories that fill every episode.

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

Product Description

With both a baby and a wedding on the way, change is in the air and awesomeness abounds in the hilariously unpredictable Season Seven of How I Met Your Mother. As Marshall and Lily move away to start their family, Ted continues the search for the woman of his dreams. Meanwhile, Robin reveals a shocking secret and special guest star Katie Holmes joins the fun in the long-awaited return of the Slutty Pumpkin! And, wedding bells are ringing at last for confirmed bachelor Barney, but why is he wearing that ridiculous ducky tie, and just who is the "lucky" lady?

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny Moments, But Too Much Going On July 3, 2012
Format:DVD
How I Met Your Mother is my favorite show on television right now, period. So it pains me to be a harsh critic, but this season is deserving of three stars. Whether I look at it as its own entity or in comparison to previous seasons, Season 7 just did not live up to standards. There were some high moments, and there were some episodes that momentarily renewed my faith that the writers were onto something, but ultimately I found myself disappointed in the end result.

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.

**Will Contain Spoilers**

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Season of spinning wheels, lowest point yet. May 23, 2012
Format:DVD
I'm a huge fan of HIMYM. The first four seasons are excellent. Season 5 disappointed me with its poor handling of the Robin/Barney relationship, and then a bunch of fillerish episodes. Season 6 redeemed itself right away, setting up a new mystery with the wedding where Ted will meet the mother. The season contained small hints at whose wedding it might be, but there were also a lot of strong arcs involving Marshall and his father, and Barney and his father. There was also Ted, who spent the majority of that season in a relationship with the antagonistic Zoey. The finale revealed to us that one of the people getting married at that wedding "a little ways down the road" was none other than Barney!

Season 7 starts off strong with "The Best Man," but quickly falters from there. Much of the first third of the season are lackluster episodes, as we follow Barney pursuing a relationship with Nora, Robin pining after Barney and then presumably giving up in favor of her therapist-turned-boyfriend, Kevin. Ted ties up some loose ends with Victoria, and Marshall and Lily try to figure out where they want to raise their child. The action picks up a bit in 7.9, "Disaster Averted," which is another standout episode in the season, which takes the tension between Barney and Robin up a notch by having them hook up again. That plotline continues in 7.10, where despite having a discussion which may lead to their getting back together, Robin mercilessly rejects Barney in favor of Kevin. 7.11 is nothing special with a very misleading cliffhanger, and 7.12 is a tearjerker of an episode with a very cruel twist.

And from there the season completely sputters. Despite all the build-up between Barney and Robin, long stretches of episodes go by without them addressing anything that's happened.

If you are considering purchasing season 7, I highly recommend it. Very funny, with lots of twists and turns, as usual. Just started watching the show this year, and cannot wait for season 8!

3.0 out of 5 stars Huge Step Down February 17, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wow how have the mighty fallen, this season is a massive step down from previous seasons. Season 6 was not upto par with the previous seasons but still reasonable however season 7 is a new low and at this rate they are gonna get cancelled.

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.

Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is one of my favorite shows of all time. This season is no exception and continues how I met your mother's excellent integration of events past and future to add fantastic layers of complexity to a simple, fun, and easy to enjoy show.

2.0 out of 5 stars Now a Drama October 1, 2012
Format:DVD
This season really took the show from a comedy to a drama. I was a huge fan of HIMYM, however this last season left me feeling sad after nearly every episode. I rarely laughed, far different from the first few seasons that had me laughing out loud nearly the entire time.

How I Met Your Mother is one of the best shows out there. All the characters are wonderful. Each and every episode in this show has a style of its own. So I'll guarantee it to you that if you start watching HIMYM, you'll be hooked and thoroughly enjoy it.
