I've been a fan of How I Met Your Mother from Day One, so I don't use a phrase like "starting to slip a little" lightly. But the fact is, season three just doesn't quite measure up to the previous two.
The main problem, as I see it, is that the writers felt the need to create ongoing conflict between the core group of friends. Sure, conflict is necessary to keep things interesting. But I think the ensemble in this show is better served by external conflicts (e.g., Barney and Ted's various problems with the opposite sex, Marshall's work-related stress, etc.). Watching Ted and Robin try to one-up each other after a painful breakup last season was. . .well, not that funny. Later in the season, Ted and Barney's friendship was on the rocks.
Otherwise, there were plenty of well-written and funny shows. Here's a few highlights:
"Slapsgiving" pays off the long-running joke from last season's "Slap Bet."
"We're Not From Here" allows Barney and Ted to cut loose, posing as out-of-towners.
"How I Met Everyone Else" introduces us to a classic Barney Stinson gimmick: The Crazy/Hot Scale.
"Ten Sessions" introduces Ted's major love interest Stella (Sarah Chalke), probably his most memorable girlfriend since season one's Victoria. His manic (and successful) attempt at a two-minute date is probably the high point of the season.
"Sandcastles in the Sand" brings back Robin Sparkles. . .and culminates in an ending so shocking, you'll be grateful you don't have to wait another week to see what comes next.
I guess it's fair to say the good outweighs the not-so-good in season three.Read more ›
This show is my wrinkle cream (it pumps blood to my face and increases circulation to my wrinkles, slowing the aging process. Also, cranky people age faster: this is my scientific and medically sound theory). A few laugh lines are okay in exchange for general skin dewiness. Added Value: I'm less of a total behotch after I "watch my show" as the old people say. Everybody wins!
Wow, does Ted sleep with a lot of women. I hope he is covered in a hazmat latex bodysuit with um, many spermicid-y chemicals.
