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.

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.

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.

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.

I began watching How I Met Your Mother on Netflix late last year and quickly became hooked on it. The cast is exceptional, and the scripts are generally right on the mark with few exceptions. Unfortunately, Netflix didn't have Season 7 and I didn't want to start watching in the middle. I had hoped to get Season 7 on DVD before Season 8 started but it won't be released until October. I'm not sure what the reasoning behind that is so I bought it digitally and the HD quality from Amazon is very good over my Roku.

I was expecting a lot of misses in Season 8 from some of the other reviews, but as it turned out there was really only two episodes that didn't work for me and were disappointments. I thought The Slutty Pumpkin episode had so much more potential especially after a big buildup to it in previous seasons. Also I don't find Chris Elliott as Lily's Dad particularly funny and although I loved the flaming beekeeper episode, 46 minutes was also a miss where much of the episode was devoted to Lily and Marshall trying to get rid of Elliott. For me, he's always been annoying and the only thing I've ever tolerated him in was Groundhog Day. I was glad to see him depart after a couple of episodes.

That being said, I thought all of the other episodes jelled together nicely with a lot of ups and downs, some sadness, and a lot of laughter. And it's that mix that really makes me enjoy this show. Well, that and finding out How Ted Met His Kid's Mother.
