She's never been on How I Met Your Mother, so I personally wouldn't really call it a spin-off, not sure why they do.  More like a sequel or something.


Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

Never heard of her. Haven't watched HIMYM for years, deleted over 40 eps at once. Either it got really annoying, or they started phoning it in, or I just outgrew it. Mabe a little of each. Could not wind through that insipid title song fast enough.

 

I think the contribution of Carter Bays and co. was that they added single-camera elements to the basic 4-camera sitcom. They would regularly shoot 50-60 separate setups for one half-hour ep. So it moved fast, in keeping with our ever-decreasing attention span.

 

But if you ask that basic question, "do you really want to spend time with these people?" I think the answer has to be "No." Maybe they would be interesting and half as annoying if the quality of writing had not deteriorated, but, unfriend, unfriend, unfriend, unfriend, etc.

 

I thought it was woefully miscast, especially the highly over-rated male leads. Cobie Smulders is certainly adorable (as is her name), but it really comes down to writing. 

 

Here is a prime example, Alison Hannigan was brilliant, even at age 29 playing a 16-yo improbably bisexual witch on BuffyTVS. Willow Rosenberg was really interesting, because she was a creation of the mind of Joss Whedon and his writing. But Alison Hannigan in this character could only be described by a 4-letter word that none of us could use on this forum. And also a 6-letter word we can use, completely BORING. And that character is NOT written by Joss Whedon.

 

So expectations for the sequel have been satisfactorily lowered. I don't expect much, but I would not complain about being pleasantly surprised.


It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.
