    My bad. I thought the previous discussion was based on an article that was speculating, and that this was new info that was definitive.

    I think I'm going to skip to the end of this thread. It stopped being funny for me a few pages ago.

    Wow. I say a shows premise may have run its course once but the same people jump on this show over and over again and I'm the bad guy. Just wow. I even admitted in that post that I don't like to say that. Wow. Every Mother thread is full of hate and I'm the bad guy.

    This. Normally rational posters seem to have gone round the bend on this one for some reason. I know we all have our obsessions but this is JUST A TV SHOW. People should be allowed to express their opinions without it turning nasty. :thumbsdown:

    But HIMYM has run its course as well. This show really could have ended 3 years ago and there would've been maybe 5 memorable episodes we would've lost. And it's somewhat insulting because my guess is that CBS knows that a lot of us are only watching to see the story of the mother. But it's a built in audience that they know will keep coming back for the end of the story.

    I'm not certain why you're so angry about the subject, but coming to a thread and saying that a show isn't meeting the standards it set for itself isn't unreasonable.

    Absolutely spot on with Kate Micucci. It took me a second to realize it's not her.

    Any chance she is just bringing the yellow umbrella to the real mother? :p

    That would be funny. The opening scene of the next season could have her say "Oh, and where is the lost and found? Someone left this umbrella on the platform".

    (Wow, Gooch was only in 4 eps of Scrubs??)

    This woman doesn't have anywhere near the "head on a lollipop stick" look, though I admit the bug eyes do remind me a bit of Kate.

    (BTW, I think Kate Micucci can be entertaining, though as I said in some other thread, she's basically always acting the same.)

    Her acting is OK, but her songs, with Garfunkel and Oates and also in Raising Hope, are absolutely hilarious.

    I used to be firmly in the camp that I want to see some of the courtship between Ted and mother, but I can live with him meeting her the last episode. But, they HAVE to do it right. First of all, I DO want to know something about her so we get some idea of why Ted is attracted to her. To meet some random girl at the end and present her as mother without any reasoning, just seems like a waste of time. Second. they need to resolve the Ted-Robin thing once and for all, because Ted meeting the girl while he's still in love with Robin to me, just doesn't work, especially if the only meeting they show us is on that train platform. We need to know what it is about this girl that will make him stop pining for Robin.

    So if we get to meet and understand the mother, and we get why it was "meant to be", then I'm fine with what they seem to be planning.

    Well there's no doubt that Neil Patrick Harris would make a better Ted than Ted.

    NPH is good. He'd make a better me than I do. He's just that good.
