Awesome Season Brings Show Back Up to Par
Verified purchase
I caught up on How I Met Your Mother pretty late in the game. (This past season, actually.) But it's quickly become my favorite show on television. The stories have a wonderful mix of humor, quirk, heart, and a dash of mystery to keep you coming back for more. The characters are great, and their friendship and relationships with each other are the backbone of the show. Season 5 was a disapointing departure from the usual high standards HIMYM sets for itself, what with too many random one-off adventures and the poor execution and followup of the previous season's build-up to Barney and Robin's romance, but fortunately Season 6 quickly recovers and mostly erases the damage.

Season 6 is a lot more structured story-wise than any other season. It starts with a flash to the future, with Ted nervous about his speech as the best man at a wedding. This wedding turns out to be the one where Ted will meet the mother, and the season ends with another scene at the future wedding, where we learn one of the people who is getting married that day. In addition to those bookending scenes that fuel speculation all season long about whose wedding it might be, Lily and Marshall are trying to get pregnant, Barney searches for his real father (not Bob Barker!), Robin gets over her breakup with Don and gets a new job, Marshall deals with both family and job crisis', and Ted gets involved in a project for GNB which involves the destruction of a very old hotel building, the Arcadian, and eventually ends up in a relationship with the girl trying to stop the project.

The more prominent ongoing storylines are actually nice, and don't at all take away from the episodes' humor. It gives a little more lasting characterization to episodes like "Blitzgiving," that is a goofy Thanksgiving story on the surface, but also gets us more familiar with the reoccuring character of Zoey. Other fun highlights are "Subway Wars," "Natural History," and "Glitter." There are also some really emotionally charged episodes, "Bad News" and "Last Words," with Marshall dealing with a death in his family, as well as "Legendaddy," where Barney finally meets his dad.

I felt like the season faltered a little bit toward the end, though nothing too terrible. There are probably one or two too many episodes dealing with the Arcadian and Zoey, and I wasn't convinced by the few episodes where Barney tries dating a co-worker of Robin's. (Though, the latter storyline will probably be making a reappearance in Season 7.) But the rest of the episodes are so strong that it more than makes up for any shortcomings. The end of the season comes with a couple of big moments that set the stage for the coming year.

Overall, another great season of a great show. Definitely a must-own if you're a fan!

Weaker than the other seasons, but good nonetheless
Verified purchase
This season in particular tended to drag, especially with the Zoey story. While it was a bit annoying to watch Ted nearly throw away his career over a married woman who nearly manipulated him into ruins, there was some good in it: It made for some undeniably funny exchanges between the four main characters over the "Captain's" creepy demeanor, and it seemed like Ted finally learned his lesson about chasing relentlessly after a girl who ultimately wasn't right for him. I appreciated the nods to "The Fountainhead" evident in the whole debacle, which were sort of an inside joke if you've read the book.

The Blitz episode was another highlight of this season, as it provided some comic relief in what was overall, a fairly serious season. The guy from Lost (I don't watch Lost, but recognized him nonetheless) was hilarious, and there were a few little tongue-in-cheek moments alluding to the show that I'm sure fans would appreciate.

My favorite episode was "Natural History", because it showed a hint of the growing spark between Barney and Robin.

Overall, not my favorite season, but there were some good moments. Mostly bought it for the sake of completion, as I own all the other seasons.

HIMYM Season 6: Glitter!
Verified purchase
As a huge HIMYM fan, this season has everything I look for in the show, and some things I don't.

Check out S6:E13 and start with number 50. You'll understand when you see it again :) It's little touches like that that I absolutely love.

I didn't care for Zoey, maybe because it's such a tired stereotype (young, hot wife married to rich, older man gets bored and creates mountains out of molehills. Yawn.) What I LOVED was Zoey's wardrobe! The costumes on this show stay very true to form, and even when Lily had her credit card crisis, her clothes weren't too over the top.

Not Zoey. From her diamond choker to her Birkin (ee!!) bag, this girl is dressed to impress. There was an extra with a Chanel flap, too!

I love the little things about this show, and this season has those in spades. Definitely get it!

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. Season 6 continues with these story arcs and a new girlfriend for Ted.

Episode 1: "Big Days"--Following her breakup with Don, Robin is in a slump. Marshall and Lily start to feel the pressure of trying to have a baby; Ted lets us know where he meets his future wife.

Episode 2: "Cleaning House"--We learn more about Barney's past (and his father who apparently ISN'T Bob Barker) when the group helps his mom move out of her long-time home.

Episode 3: "Unfinished"--Ted's design for GNB's new building gets green-lighted; Robin makes drunk dials to Don.

Episode 4: "Subway Wars"--While trying to turn Robin into a `real New Yorker,' the gang gets savvy to a few of their biggest personal insecurities.

Episode 5: "Architect of Destruction"--Robin starts a rebound relationship with Marshall's friend, Max, which leads Marshall to paranoia about what secrets the girls share behind their men's backs. In order for GNB's new bank to be built, a vintage hotel must be demolished; Zoey tries to save the building, and despite his feelings for her, Ted proceeds with the destruction.

Episode 6: "Baby Talk"--Robin is annoyed by her new co-anchor, Becky, but becomes even further irritated by how many men find Becky's neediness attractive. Marshall and Lily argue over the gender of their not-yet-existent baby.

Episode 7: "Canning Randy"--Ted's battle with Zoey invades his classroom; Marshall `cans' Randy for being a useless employee, then has to suffer the guilt.

Episode 8: "Natural History"--When the gang attends a function at the Natural History Museum, Zoey blackmails Ted; Barney learns more about his own history.

Episode 9: "Glitter"--Barney unveils more about Robin Sparkles and her co-star, Jessica Glitter; Lily worries that having a baby might end her friendship with Robin. Ted agrees to be the best man at Punchy's wedding.

Episode 10: "Blitzgiving"--Ted feels betrayed when his friends party with Zoey, his mortal enemy, which ultimately leads to the destruction of Ted's oven. The gang is then forced to spend Thanksgiving at Zoey's; Ted begins to understand Zoey.

Episode 11: "The Mermaid Theory"--Now that he's developed a friendship with Zoey, Ted feels uneasy about spending time with a married woman. To rectify his guilt, Ted befriends her husband, Captain.

Episode 12: "False Positive"--Lily and Marshall realize how unprepared they are for parenthood when Lily gets a false positive on a pregnancy test; Robin takes a new job.

Episode 13: "Bad News"--A fertility specialist finds nothing wrong with Lily's ability to conceive which causes Marshall to fear that he is the culprit; Robin learns that her new job puts her back in the news room with Sandy Rivers.

Episode 14: "Last Words"--Everyone travels to Minnesota to attend Marvin Eriksen's funeral; when Marshall discovers an un-played voicemail from his dad, he hesitates to listen for fear that his dad's last words aren't ones he wants to remember.

Episode 15: "Oh Honey"--Since Marshall stayed behind in Minnesota, he's the perfect person to call to complain about Ted and Zoey. Ted, feeling guilty because Zoey is married, tries to pull away; Zoey, not wanting to face rejection, sets Ted up with her cousin yet prays for failure. Only Marshall's `outside-looking-in' perspective can set his friends straight.

Episode 16: "Desperation Day"--Marshall regresses back to childhood in Minnesota. When Ted stresses over matters with Zoey, he, too, is seduced by the care-free life of a Minnesota child. Because women don't want to be alone on Valentine's Day, Barney theorizes that February 13th is Desperation Day; even though he has a cache of desperate women, Barney picks just one as his valentine.

Episode 17: "Garbage Island"--Even though Ted is dating Zoey, he awkwardly ends up being Captain's confidant in the divorce. A documentary reignites Marshall's passion for environmentalism, leading him to feel guilty about his current job; Barney confesses his feelings for Nora.

Episode 18: "A Change of Heart"--Barney's feelings for Nora, as well as the group's expectations for Barney, are conflicted; everyone gets a cardiac evaluation.

Episode 19: "Legendaddy"--Barney's hopes for his long-lost dad are crushed by reality; jealous of his half-brother, Barney realizes he isn't ready to reconnect with Jerry.

Episode 20: "The Exploding Meatball Sub"--Zoey, Ted's arch-nemesis and girlfriend, finally gets a hearing that stands to prevent the construction of Ted's design for GNB. Marshall takes the leap into a new line of work, one that doesn't pay so well.

Episode 21: "Hopeless"--In an attempt to connect with Barney, Jerry tries to embody Barney's version of `dream dad,' but ultimately teaches Barney a lesson about life and family.

Episode 22: "The Perfect Cocktail"--Ted begins to understand why Zoey wants to save the Arcadian. When GNB ruins Marshall's chances at a new job, Marshall joins forces with Zoey to prevent the new office from being built; Barney feels Marshall has betrayed GNB.

Episode 23: "Landmarks"--The conflict between Barney and Zoey forces Ted to choose sides and sever ties.

Episode 24: "Challenge Accepted"--Lily gets sick from food poisoning, causing Marshall to race through a job interview before the plague gets him too; Barney gets a second chance with Nora, but is she the one he ends up marrying? As the Arcadian starts to crumble, Ted needs his friends to help him hold it all together.

Best Since Season two?
Verified purchase
Season Six of "How I Met Your Mother" may be the sitcom's best since its sophomore year, and probably its most underrated. Although there isn't much movement on the mystery of the mother, it's a season loaded with solid episodes and hilarious moments, with several satisfying arcs for the HIMYM gang.

The main story pits Ted against new nemesis/love interest Zoey Pierson, played by an adorably feisty Jennifer Morrison (House, Once Upon a Time). Zoey is trying to block construction of the GNB headquarters Ted's been rehired to design, so of course it's just a matter of time before the two fall for each other. The pairing originally irked some fans, who felt they were being strung along by a doomed relationship, but the arc works much better on repeated viewing: the two have great chemistry together, and their story mirrors the season's overall theme: "sometimes things have to fall apart to make way for better things."

Elsewhere, Marshall and Lily struggle to get pregnant, and Marshall suffers a brutal and unexpected loss which reverberates throughout the group. Robin finally leaves her 4AM morning show in pursuit of something better, while Barney finally makes contact with his long-absent father (played by John Lithgow). While it's typical for sitcom characters to evolve over time, this season of HIMYM makes it feel natural and not gimmicky.

Thankfully, the show hasn't run short of ambition after six seasons. "Subway Wars" is an outdoor epic that pays homage to both 24 and Annie Hall. "Bad News" features a subtle countdown via background props leading to a major event. "The Mermaid Theory" pokes fun at the show's narrative conceit, with Future Ted struggling to get characters straight. And unlike previous years, where guest spots often felt like awkward ratings grabs, turns by everyone from Kyle MacLachlan and Katy Perry to Ben Vereen feel spot on.

In terms of extras, there's the usual gag reel, deleted scenes, a featurette on "Subway Wars" and a "What We Know About Your Mother" clip reel. Sadly, only four of the 24 episodes have commentary tracks, which is a huge disappointment; it's usually a pleasure listening to the cast and show execs offer their views on various episodes, but they're in scarce supply here.

The DVD set for Season Six of HIMYM is subtitled "The New Is Always Better Edition," which is appropriate. More than previous years, this season feels like one coherent volume from a larger story, with a consistent theme of all the characters rebooting parts of their lives in some way. If you already own the first two seasons and have been away for a while, you'll probably find Season 6 to be a pleasant surprise.

As the DVDs go there was nothing wrong with them at all so no complaints there.

As the show goes, I love the show but I wish we would start learning a few of the answers to the long running questions, at least with Robin and Barney. I understand that can't quite answer Ted's long running query of who becomes his wife because that would mean the end of the show. Anyway that's me just ranting my personal opinions. I still love the show and think its great and wonderfully written and it sure does make me want to keep watching to find out what is going to happen next.

I would recommend this product/show to anyone in the teen-adult range. It follows a group of friends in New York in an interesting story like manner where Ted, one of the main characters is telling his two children about how he met their mother through a very lonnnggggg series of stories. Each episode is funny and entertaining and I find myself watching them again and again.

This series never fails to bring joy and laughter into our household. The cast is incredible, and their comedic timing is superb. Writing a review for season 6 does not seem as significant as writing a review for season 1. If you have already watched the first 5 seasons, you will definitely watch the next 2. If you have not seen this show, you will want to watch season 1. All I can truly say is, to those of you who would read this review already know how amazing this show is, so I am basically preaching to the choir. Enjoy season 6!
