How I Met Your Mother: Some Thoughts

This might just be fever-induced hysteria but I'm actually kind of glad that Barney and Robin broke up yesterday. Sure, some part of me is hoping that its all just a ploy and they'll be back together soon, but really, the relationship was killing the show. The show was pretty awesome up until the point when Barney and Robin got together. Maybe it's that Barney being single was what made the show so hilarious and him being tied down in a monogamous relationship just killed the vibe of the show. So, yeah, I still totally ship Barney/Robin, but maybe that's what fanfiction is for. Sure, in real TV land, they're broken up, but at least in fanfiction land they'll be together forever....
(P.S. I think I've gone into post-traumatic stress. I'm bleeding optimism...ugh!)

Okay, my problem is this. The way that the SHOW made Barney and Robin get together ruined the show. But it didn't have to be like that and it shouldn't have been like that. Barney and Robin could have been great/angsty/hysterically funny and AWESOME. But the show decided to run them into the ground for some unfathomable reason, without really giving Robin any motivation.

And then the show has pressed reset.

I don't think the show was pretty awesome up until this point. Yes, season 4 showed flashes of the old genius but there were far too many weak points. And season 5 has been 83% weak points. And that has not entirely been for reasons of Barney and Robin.

I don't even know if they can pull out of this tailspin right now?

I hope so.

Seaason 1-3 was some of the best telly, EVER.
