As most people on this spot know, I can talk for hours. Especially about How I Met Your Mother. My own mother told me I could have an hour long conversation about the show in an empty room. Normally I write my rubbish in the forum but the HIMYM spot only has two soapboxes, so I thought I would write another one. This one was inspired by Britney Spears appearance and will have my opinions on some of the great and some of the not so great guest stars that have been in How I Met Your Mother.

Mandy Moore as Amy in Wait For It

The following article was written over seven years ago in December 2011, around mid Season Seven of "HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER":


I am tired of the Robin Scherbatsky/Barney Stinson (Cobie Smulders/Neil Patrick Harris) saga. I really am. They have practically dominated Season Seven of CBS's "HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER" with a romance that seemed to be force-fed by the series' creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays, in order to satisfy the certain shippers.

What can I say? Everything about the Robin/Barney love story has seemed forced to...

The Chick Code

ARTICLE 1: Chicks before dicks. The bond between two women is stronger than the bond between a man and a woman because, on average, women are more willing and able to commit than men. Unfortunate for our love lives, but true.

ARTICLE 2: A Chick is always entitled to do something wild, as long as the rest of her Side-Chicks* are all doing it. For example: partaking in "WOOO!"-ing.

ARTICLE 3: A Chick never divulges the existence of the Chick Code to a man. It is a sacred document not to be shared with guys for any, not even that reason. (Note: if you a man reading this,...

As we all know from the first episode of this LEGENDARY show that robin is “AUNT” robin that she’s NOT the mother and we all understood why ted told his kids about his romantic relationship with robin because of her he got a tattoo, which lead him to his (first fiancé) which lead to being a professor in college which lead to him to meeting their kid’s mother.

As much as we all love the other aspects in the show (barney legendary life, robin being candid, lily being bad-ass, Marshall being supernatural believer, ted being the geek) the whole point of this show is who is the mother and...

Some fans may have thought Robin and Barney would be done for good after she chose Kevin over him — and then they had the pregnancy scare where they had differing opinions on having kids — but the EPs downplayed that notion.

“Barney also wants to have kids in a very hypothetical sense…we have to call Barney out on whether he really wants to have kids,” Thomas said. “We don’t look at that as a singular deal breaker…Deep down, Barney doesn’t really know what he wants.”

“And that’s not to take anything away from what Robin and Barney have, because they’re so in love”...

Friends is one of the most successful shows ever produced. But a new, and very popular, comedy show has emerged. Despite huge competition from other comedy shows, How I Met Your Mother attracts around 9,000,000 weekly viewers.

In this article, I'm going to talk about a few striking similarities between the shows, or to be more precise, similarities between the characters on both shows.

Ross Geller and Ted Mosby, 'pursuers of love'

Ross Green and Ted Mosby resemble a lot. Their ultimate goal is to find their soul mate and have a long and happy marriage. In both shows, this is a very important element....

Even Perez Hilton sometimes compares these shows. I like both, but prefer HIMYM. There are many simple reasons why they are different, so here are just a few:

1) 5 vs 6: This may seem extremely minor, but it is a very different dynamic. The plot lines of Friends episodes often (but not always) follow 3 pairs of the Friends doing various things together. On HIMYM there seems to be more intermingling of plots (in my opinion).

2) Inspiration: HIMYM is loosely based on Carter and Craig's lives. They are the creators of the show and the idea started somewhat autobiographically.

3) Lack of live audience:...

The CBS television series, "HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER" (2005-2014), ended its nine season run on March 31, 2014. Television audiences usually greet television finales either with great satisfaction or with equal contempt. Instead of one or the other, the television series created by Carter Bays and Craig Thomas proved to be not only divisive, but also controversial. And romance for the series' main character, Ted Mosby, ended up being the center of that controversy.

As fans of "HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER" know, the series is more or less one major flashback...

1. Lesbian Robin.....
Robin's doppleganger was not shown on Himym properley but it basically just looked like Robin with cropped hair and a dirty face she was carrying a baseball if I remember correctly and also a checked shirt and washed out jeans and old (maybe men's) trainers Barney, Lily, Ted , Marshall and Robin all saw lesbian Robin at the same time it seems according to Season 5 episode "Double Date" she was just casually walking along the street and spitting on the floor.

2. Moustache Marshall......
Again Marshall's Doppleganger was not shown properley on Himym it was just featured as...

Author's Note: I feel like this isn't very good... But there'll probably be more and hopefully it will get better. Anyway... The basic premise is that Dr. Horrible is the fifth doppleganger. Let me know what you think. Also, this will be posted on multiple spots. It will also appear in the NPH spot and the Barney Stinson spot.

Ted, Robin, Marshall and Lily were sitting watching a football game in Ted’s apartment. It was an uneventful Saturday afternoon when suddenly Barney rushed into the apartment.

“GUYS!” He cried, slamming the door behind him.

“No, Barney…” Ted groaned. “Whatever...

The creators of How I Met Your Mother, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, pull so many tricks and twists on their audience, it's hard to believe anything they tell us. After all, Robin's whole "storytelling to her kids" episode was a dream sequence, and that broke our hearts, dang it!

But there is someone on HIMYM that you can trust, and the answer may surprise you…

"Our rationale was that our narrator has never lied to us," Carter Bays says. "We take the stuff he says as gospel. Ultimately, it's a pretty reliable narrator. I think people can trust what Bob Saget says."

So we invite you all to go...

Now I'd like to start off by saying that I'm a Bobin fan. I don't ship- mainly oot of principle- but I do love them together and would like to see them ending up together. Only I would like to see them unite in the very last season (Season 10?).Why?

I have been doing a little re-watchathon and saw the odd episode here and there from all seasons( admittedly mainly season 1&2) and one of the things I noticed and I had almost forgotten was the incredible inappropriateness of Barney!
And not even the crazy over the top ideas or theories like the "Lemon law" or the "Hot-crazy scale". We have...

The way I see things
if I were Ted,
You'd be Robin.
All a series of broken strings.

I don't get a choice, not this time.
I'll always come back to you, no matter what.
Love is the best thing we do.
It’s our drive. To envy, lust and crime.

It's not love if I pick another.
It's not love. Not meant to be,
something silly. Forced upon, not by destiny.
You know it’s true. We've chemistry. You're not just a number.

No, it's not wise or safe to think of you -
Especially because we're not likely to ever happen.
Then why do I choose to torture myself?
Why do I aim at catching a bird, when it has already flew?...

It all started in the year of 2005
When the world was blind, without being able to see
Although it began a delayed time for me
I knew in my heart it was so much more
Then anything I had witnessed before
The moments went by me, I was so naïve and in doubt
I just assumed our memories we share would continue to endlessly grow.
But now I look back and sit around and pout,
That the time went by like a blanket you would sew
Starting slow and seeming endless at first
But all of a sudden, before time to stop and take it in, the end came near.
For everything I came to know and love ended without even a blink....

She totally did!
She totally did!
AUTHOR'S NOTE- I was re-watching Sandcastles in the Sand (for the 1000th time xD) and I thought that it would be fun to write out the end scene as like a kind of fan fiction. This story is told in the third person but it's from Robin's POV. I had a really great time writing it and I'll hope you read it and enjoy it! :D lot's of love, HouseOfficeFan7 (AKA Claire [: )

Robin knew Ted would have to leave soon, but she wished he wouldn't. She had been holding back tears all night and she knew that once she was left alone, it would be impossible to prevent them falling.

Finally, the moment she was...
