TV Tonight: How I Met Your Mother

The end of the Emmys means the true start of the TV season, as networks start rolling out new episodes left and right (are you using my Fall TV calendar to keep track?). Up tonight: the CBS comedy block, which includes newcomer Worst Week and the delightful How I Met Your Mother.

A brief note about Worst Week: I didn't like the pilot very much, mostly because I found the main character unsympathetic and the pratfalls predictable. It's an interesting concept, though, and pretty different for CBS, so I'm curious to see how it does.

Meanwhile, How I Met Your Mother starts its fourth season by resolving the legendary (sorry, couldn't help it) cliffhanger of Ted's proposal to Stella. The show doesn't keep us waiting long for Stella's answer: After a montage of several possible reactions (played perfectly by Sarah Chalke), we see her real response within the first few minutes of the episode. Other things we see over the following 20 minutes or so: Star Wars references, Barney's struggle with having actual feelings for Robin (er, well, having actual feelings at all), a bored and troublemaking Marshall, and a rather amusing exploration of the art of the late-night hookup call. I'm just going to leave it there because anything else would spoil the fun. To check out a clip from tonight's episode, just

I like that they're giving Barney more depth as a character. I do love this show, I like it better than Friends. I didn't like Ted with Stella. And I don't agree with Stella trying to pretend she loves Star Wars when she doesn't. You should be yourself in a relationship. You don't have to be one of those twin couples.

I loved last nights episode. I have really missed Barney. I was so excited watching the commercials with his 'Legen...wait for it...dary'. I hope they don't give up on the Barney & Robin thing. Very cute.

I love How I Met Your Mother! It's hilarious and my life long crush on NPH has helped me get into this show. I'm so mad I missed the premiere though, I had some studying to do..

My best friend and I have never been able to get into HIMYM. We've tried, but it always comes across too desperate, too sappy. We do enjoy Two and a half men and sometimes Big Bang. I'm surprised HIMYM has lasted so long.
