Since it seems a decent amount of us who traverse this corner of the interebays are fans of “How I Met Your Mother,” I thought I’d throw up a post to ask your thoughts on the year’s first show, “Definitions.” My two pennies: I’ll begrudgingly admit the premiere opened me up a bit more to the idea of Barn-man and Robin, probably since Ted’s hypothetical unease could have faded by now. Most of the rest of the episode was typical premiere-y setup and reminders of the sitchyation at hand, so it wasn’t a series fave or anything, but Ted’s douchey “Good Morning. ‘Sup? SILENCE!” line absolutely made the episode.
Also, I can’t quite put my finger on it, but the show came off more…well, confident than I remember. Like it didn’t necessarily have to go for the biggest gag, or turn the laugh track up to 11 after jokes. Just seemed a bit more assured than in the past.
Was that a figment of my imagination? Will it last? Who the hell knows. I’m just glad it’s back. Mondays are awe-a-whole-darn-lot again.
Agree? Disagree? Holla.
