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.

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.

RECAP: The series follows Ted, an architect telling his children the story if how he met their mother. Each season shows Ted and his friends experiencing all of the moments and antics that will eventually/hopefully lead to Ted meeting and falling in love with his future wife. In general, it's probably necessary to have watched the previous seasons before jumping in at Season 6, since there are references to the past and previous character development plays a role. This is a well-written and family appropriate show that keeps fans begging for more.

Season 6 kicked off in the fall of 2010 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 6 features guest appearances from Marshall Manesh as Ranjit, Jennifer Morrison and Zoey, Chris Romano as Punchy, Nazanin Boniadi as Nora, Wayne Brady as James Stinson, John Lithgow as Jerry Whittaker, Robbie Amell as Scooby, Rachel Bilson as Cindy, Frances Conroy as Loretta Stinson, Michael Gross as Alfred Mosby, Alexis Denisof as Sandy Rivers, Jorge Garcia as Steve "The Blitz" Henry, Will Forte as Randy Wharmpess, Nicole Scherzinger as Jessica Glitter, Michael Trucco as Nick Podarutti, Ray Wise as Robin Scherbatsky, Sr., Danny Strong as Trey, Maury Povich as himself, Alan Thicke as himself, and Alex Trebek as himself.

SEASON 6: In Season 5, we actually got a little glimpse of Ted's future wife; the Season ended with Robin and Don breaking up, Marshal and Lily deciding to try for a baby, and Barney up to his usual antics.
