I love this bit from the article:

How much momentum do they have? Well, for one, the writers didn't break for hiatus yet and have plotted the November sweeps episodes. "I'm not even kidding!" Thomas says. "I won't say we have everything in between, but we have the premiere down and [Episodes] 7, 8, 9, 10, which have some nuclear-powered stuff that's directly connected to what happens in the finale."
I love that the writers are diligently plotting out the episodes and arcs. How many other sitcoms have stories that intricate that the writers keep working during hiatus to plan out next season's plot?

With the East Coast feed just ending, it definitely wasn't a cliffhanger. I felt it was almost predictable. At least it sets some things up for next season. Overall - meh!

Was it supposed to be a big revelation at the end? I believe we already knew that Ted was the best man at that wedding and that the wedding is where he met the mother, right? So we're supposed to be blown away by the new fact that it was Barney who was getting married?

LOL--I've only seen one or two scenes from this show but I kind of follow it in these news articles because I definitely find it intriguing that it's a sitcom w/ this big ass story arc... but even just from READING about the show, I guessed that Barney was the groom, just based on Ted being the best man. I even watched the last few minutes of the finale to see what the big revelation would be, and if I guessed it, I can only imagine the fans did also.

How do the show's fans like the idea of this wedding being pieced out over the next TWO seasons? Especially after six seasons of already wondering who the mother is, etc? I guess it's one of those "it's about the journey, not the destination" things. Still, when they basically tell you in advance that a story arc isn't gonna be resolved for another two years, that's kind of big.

This show would be perfect for me if I didn't hate sitcoms. I like the idea of these big mystery arcs, I just hate the sitcom format, no matter what it consists of. "Friends" is the only exception. Other than that, I've never watched any sitcoms...

I thought it was pretty predictable who the groom was. The only surprise will be who is the bride. :)

Also, anyone else watch Bones? The Royal Diner that they go to was at the bottom of the Arcadian before they blew it up! Which is weird, because we've also seen the Royal Diner in several scenes outside of McLaren's and Ted's apartment. :) Or maybe Ted really lives in the Arcadian! ;)

Wow, I hated the Psyche moment.
That was cheap!
I loved it. It was a nice slap in the face to all the people who have been whining about how they don't tell us who the mother is.

The demolition of the Arcadia seemed weird. I would think that they would have removed all the windows before they blew it up, but instead they had broken glass flying everywhere. :)
