    Kind of surprised nobody has started this one back up yet.

    Season 7 of How I Met Your Mother premiered September 19, 2011.

    Discuss.

    Well, it’s been pretty crappy so far, feeling very much like season 6 to me, except at least we haven’t seen Zooey, which is definitely a relief.

    The fourth episode, “Ducky Tie”, was a very pleasant exception though, and made me think of classic HIMYM episodes from seasons 1-4.

    i like this season so far, maybe cuz it’s my first season actually watching when not on syndication. and i don’t know about anyone else but i wouldn’t be mad if Barney & sheldon from the big bang theory met up, could make for some funny stuff.

    that said don’t know how i feel about a possible Barney/Robin reuniting/wedding, on the one hand i welcome it as their relationship was so short on the other it’d feel too ‘uninspired’  depending on how the writers write it out

    This season has been kinda meh. There have been a few good episodes, namely “The Ducky Tie,” but the rest has been pretty stagnant. I was really hoping Victoria would come back for real, as she is my favorite of all of Ted’s girlfriends. Hopefully the season will pick up.

    I feel kind of guilty or bad or whatever for the newcomers that show up and aren’t anticipating our cynicism lol

    With that said… this season has not been good.  This show has not been good for a long time. The premise has been stretched too thin.

    Even though Neil Patrick Harris missed out on a nomination last year–in what was, in my opinion, one of his better seasons–I don’t think NPH’s days of regular Emmy nominations for How I Met Your Mother are over.

    There are a few things to consider that could possibly happen:

    Jon Cryer may have, believe it or not, gotten a sympathy vote last year for being caught up in the whole Charlie Sheen debacle.  Neil Patrick Harris came fresh off of two Emmy wins (sadly, not for How I Met Your Mother).  It was also now common knowledge that TV legend Ed O’Neill had not only been the only adult cast member from Modern Family to lose out on a nomination during its premiere season, but he had never received an Emmy nomination in his entire acting career.  He was officially long overdue.

    Could Neil Patrick Harris possibly be this year’s Ed O’Neill, where voters suddenly realized that anyone is vulnerable, and still need voters’ support to get a nomination.

    Who knows, maybe Chris Colfer will be this year’s Neil Patrick Harris, and get a surprise snub?

    The Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series race is easily one of the most crowded categories at the Emmys, and with more than six heavyweights in the running for a nomination, and experts already predicting nominations for newcomers to the category (some of the guys from Community, Parks and Recreation, The Big Bang Theory, The Office, Garret Dillahunt), there are bound to be some bona fide snubs.

    Or is Neil Patrick Harris the next Jeremy Piven? (Or perhaps a better example would be George Wendt, since Piven actually won several times).

    Will the Emmys hold on to their love for the Modern Family men, or one or more of them be casuatlies? Stonestreet and Burrell already have their Emmys, many pundits were surprised Ferguson ever got nominated, and perhaps last year’s nomination for O’Neill was enough for them?  Some may even feel that it could be time to shift some of the love to the male child actors on the show.

    A few things could happen to free up the category: Jon Cryer could move up to Lead.  With Sheen out of the picture, it’s finally time someone admitted that Cryer was never a supporting character on Two and a Half Men. He has always been the co-lead.  This would free up some obvious competition to NPH, who lost out on a nomination to Cryer last year, and a win in 2009.

    The Emmy adoration for Cryer is so far beyond me.  Even if I did really like his acceptence speech a few years ago.

    The last episode was the best one of the season so far. However, I agree with the others, this season has not been very good. The show is way past its prime. I am watching because I have watched the show since it premeired, and I want to find out who the mother is.

    I know that the last episode was Halloween-themed, and obviously couldn’t be aired in time for Oct. 31, but it seemed like quite a detour from the week-to-week story arc.  No sign of Kevin anywhere, no mention of the girl Ted went to the Weird Al concert with in last week’s episode.  What surprises me even more is that the production code is not out of sync with the rest of the season.

    Other than this odd complaint, I found tonight’s episode to be good, and in my opinion, one of NPH’s best comedic showcases in awhile.  Although it was hard not to resist tonight’s episode as a Canadian 😉

    my favourite lines of the evening:
    “It’s federal currency and you people talk about it like it was a Hanna-Barbera character.” (Barney, on the Canadian loonies and toonies)
    “Heavens to Gretzky!” (Barney)

    Not a bad episode. Can’t say much about Katie Holmes. She’s just sorta there. Eh…. I’m getting a little bored with the show….

    “Disaster Averted”, 11/7/11

    **1/2 out of ****

    The gang reminisces about what happened during Hurricane Irene. The first problem with this episode is that, as I recall, Irene really only sideswiped the city and so the depiction here was overblown, if you’ll forgive a cheap pun. The second problem was that damn stupid bear, which was not funny the first time, let alone the third. I didn’t recognize the writer as a series regular and the director was different from old reliable Pamela Fryman, so a few things felt a bit off. But there were compensations in the ducky tie shenanigans and the renewal and extension of the slap bet. Also, Harris is still effortlessly douche-y and endearing at the same time and it’s nice to see the Robin/Barney story reignite. I haven’t figured out why Kal Penn is still around; it’s just one too many people in the ensemble.

    I will refrain from any comments about getting on with bringing in the mother, already.

    Edit: Last night’s writer, Robia Rashad, has been a story editor for a while and has written a handful of episodes in previous seasons.

    “Symphony of Illumination”

    A+.

    This episode was so damn good I can’t even stand it.  It was easily the most powerful episode this show has ever done and it was damn funny too.

    Colbie Smulders had the best episode that any supporting actress has ever had possibly ever.  I was completly blown away by her performance it was heartbreaking.  No other actress will get a tape like this.  Too bad she wont get to use it…

    Another great effort by this show in its revitalized 7th season.
