In my opinion, the best show on CBS is How I Met Your Mother - and second place is pretty distant. As the show heads towards its inevitable end, pieces of the puzzle are likely going to start falling into place pretty rapidly.
Beginning with Barney's two weddings.
Wait, what? As last season ended, Barney (played in a legen.....wait for it....dary manner by Neil Patrick Harris) popped the question to Quinn (Becki Newton). But Newton is scheduled for Fox's midseason comedy The Goodwin Games, so she likely won't be around for the long haul. But she is all over the promo for the new season, which you can view here:
But long-time fans know that it has been teased that Barney gets with Robin (Cobie Smulders) again at some point. Many fans want them to end up together in the long-run.
Is that future now?
It might be, after Marshall (Jason Segel) and Lily's (Alyson Hannigan) say something that Barney doesn't want them to spill to Quinn.
Ted isn't in the promo much, but Ted sucks. Every show needs a weak link and he is definitely it here.
How I Met Your Mother returns to CBS Monday, Sept. 24. Segal and Hannigan may be leaving the show following this season.
I will probably stop watching after Segal and Hannigan leave. Alyson Hannigan was the reason I started watching the show in the first place and though I like the show well enough, it would lose a LOT after they are gone and I'm getting a little tired of the whole string along of the premise of not showing who the mother is.
