The gang's all back for yet another season of this popular CBS sitcom, centered on Ted Mosby's (Josh Radnor) hilarious accounts of single life and his search for the eventual mother of his two children. The Emmy Award-winning series also stars Golden Globe nominee Neil Patrick Harris as Ted's womanizing pal Barney, Jason Segel as his best friend, Marshall, and Alyson Hannigan as Marshall's longtime girlfriend, Lily.
After the pick up in entertainment in the last two seasons, this season was a bit of a let down and I found myself struggling quite a bit to sit down and actually watch this season, going a week or so between episodes and sometimes only watching one at a time versus a few in a row, perhaps also paying the least attention since season one. That's not to say that there weren't some laughs or touching moments throughout the season but it felt like there wasn't enough focus on their relationships and both Ted and Barney felt like they had regressed rather than grown.
"Zoo or False" was a fun episode and I did enjoy that one and "Say Cheese" was also rather fun, I liked the discussion and what not about weather or not you should have the person in your new relationship should be in family/friends photos. There are though, some good little moments that open things up for season six and what type of stories that we might expect from it, which is good but a season like this a little over halfway through the series puts me off re-watching the entire series. Still, despite this season being a bit of a let down I'm looking forward to seeing what season six has to offer us.
