Well, it wasn’t perfect, but I will totally take it!!!!!!!!
This is what I was expecting from this last season: moments in the Far Hampton Inn with flashbacks and flashfowards to moments involving the mother. The jokes worked on a character level, Marshall was actually a person talking to another cast member, and it had a heartfelt ending that made me, if only for a moment, love these people again.
Robin and Barney didn’t bicker and ended up with a sweet story cap. Ted felt like old Ted, who I didn’t hate at all. Then, finally, we got some mother! Sure she seems TOO perfect, but remember, it’s Ted’s future memory telling these stories.
Let’s just hope that THIS is the story telling we get as this tragically bad season progresses.
Keep on Watchin’!
