( Season 6, Episode 1, "Big Days")
I try to be an honest person, so in that spirit, HIMYM and I parted ways last season. The last episode I watched was "Girls Vs Suits" and I loved it. From all I've read and heard, S5 wasn't the best, but I didn't break-up with this show out of disappointment or boredom. It's more like HIMYM and I took separate vacations; some time apart to remember the love.
This is a long way of explaining that I have no idea who Don was and why Robin could possibly be so upset that they broke-up, and no idea that Marshall and Lily had decided to try and have a baby. But isn't that the joy of love, that despite some distance you can always go back?
Okay, I will stop doing my Ted impression.
I did enjoy the S5 premier, and am glad to re-enter HIMYM to my weekly rotation. I'm happy to know that even if we don't know who The Mother is, we at least are getting a clearer picture of when and where we are going to meet her. I adore that Cindy was redeemed by finding the person she is happy with, and (as a character) was not left in the heap of Ted's-exes-that-are-bitter-and-crazy. I applaud Barney for giving Robin the insensitive criticism she needed to at least wash the hair she insisted on eating food from.
And if anyone could ever for a second debate that Marshall and Lily are an amazing couple, please re-watch their conversation at the end of the episode. People who should have babies are the people who would be happy with each other even if they couldn't be (natural) parents. Again, amazing.
HIMYM, thanks for taking me back.

- I guess you would like to know a little bit about the person making all these proclamations upon good taste and horrid characters. I'm Andrea and when I was 15 I fell in love. An hour after meeting "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" I was forever altered in the way only love can, and I never questioned for one minute afterwards that television offered me an amazing chance to experience lives and moments that I could never imagine. So now, when I'm not getting distracted by my real life, I write about TV. I also read, am finishing a Master's degree in English Literature, travel, am attempting to learn vegan cooking, am the 5th of 6 children, and drive my roommate nuts by constantly cleaning our already clean apartment. Now that we're old friends, time for you to take my opinions as the be all and end all.
