She's been married for a few years now and has a kid. Her constant anger seems normal to me!
Is the mother doing any pilots for next season? I really really really enjoy her. I remember she did an episode of 30 Rock and she was great in that too.
Another "me too" - this episode was realllly good.
I liked the mother. The last scene was sweet but sad.
Gosh, I hope she finds someone.
Sounds like you need friends with better lives.
Not at all.
In fact, I'd bet that "Ted is a ******" is primarily focused on this forum that creates its own reality, especially about this show.
Bzzzzt. Wrong. I've read that sentiment from many TV critics. Just do a google search for "Ted Mosby ******" or "Ted Mosby dbag" or "Ted Mosby jerk" and you'll see all kinds of people, all across the internet, sharing that opinion.
At the beginning of the series, Ted was earnest and idealistic and he was easy to root for. As the show has progressed, we've come to realize that Ted is quirky and extremely particular and selfish and it's now very easy to see why his friends have found soul mates while he's remained single.
Okay, as long as this thread got bumped anyway...
I thought, could this episode really be as great as I remembered it being? So last night, I watched it again, and wow, it really does stand out as great. And this time through, the death of Max scene at the beginning was even more heartbreaking, knowing how deeply it affected her.
Whoopee. You can find anything on the Internet. That makes it right. Not gonna buy it. He fits into the realm of normal.
Selfish???? Really? Barney has been sooooo giving this entire time. There is a true ****** until they softened him recently. Oh, I get it. Ted isn't FUNNY like barney, so he's a ******.
Calling a normal guy a ****** says more about those who call him one than about him.
Just marry the guy already
I've heard it from friends and family who have never heard of this thread. I think there's a lot of thought toward this sentiment all over. DevdogAZ nailed it. The Ted we see now is not the same Ted we see the first couple of seasons. Nor is it Ted the narrator. But this is normal for pretty much ANY TV sitcom. They find a couple of key characteristics and emphasize it until it defines the character. I don't find Ted nearly as annoying as many here. I think he's still likable for the most part and I'm still rooting for him, but to not see his pretentious characteristics it kind of watching with blinders on.
Barney is not the protagonist of the show. If he were, it would be a different show. The show is ostensibly about how Ted meets the love of his life. At times, the show makes it difficult to root for Ted.
Ted is something, I just don't think jerk or dbag is the correct term.
Pretentious is the most fitting word I think, but they emphasized it more in the middle of the show's run versus now.
The term "pretentious ******" comes to my mind when thinking about more recent Ted.
Clearly I am not as clever/cute/funny as I like to think I am.
I was making a reference to the new show coming on CBS after HIMYM .
I got it when I read it
She's joining NBC's "A to Z," featuring Rashida Jones and Will McCormack: http://tvline.com/2014/02/12/a-to-z-cristin-milioti-nbc-comedy-series-cast/
Sounds like a great cast! Too bad it's on NBC.
