How I Met Your Mother

Maybe it is because I am a church geek, but this is comedy gold to me!!! I have no idea if this got embedded or not.

Just order the seasons and watch at leisure, if the stories don't strike you, it's not like Buffy or Babylon 5 where it builds to a crescendo that blows your mind out of the blue.

Hey, is it OK if I take a bathroom break from 1:45 to 2:00 of The Godfather?

Sure, but if you love the the movie, you'll miss a lot of important stuff, and if you don't love it by 1:45, you might as well turn it off.
I think there is a difference between taking a 15 minute break from the Godfather to miss scenes that are critically important to the plot, and saving hours of your time on episodes that are mostly not all that funny and contribute absolutely nothing to the plot. There are way too many throwaway episodes in the last 2 seasons. Sure, watch them if you want. But I know lots of people who skipped most of the last 2 seasons and seemed to enjoy the show's final run more than those of us who were so fatigued by the show completely jumping the shark.

Really, I wasn't an emotionally connected fanatic, but throughout the show, the only things that really bothered me COMEDICALLY was when they made Lily some non-Lily caricature. What was the one where she was smoking cigars and talking like the baby on Roger Rabbit, or that White Whale costume from the finale. The rest of them, when they came up short, I shrugged and said eh, they tried, and when they excelled I revelled.

Like I said, maybe it's because I watched it, not like like a real life me, or real life my friends thing, but a talented performers performing snappy scripts thing.

Having Harvey Whatshisname do the voiceover fit with Ted's unreliability as a narrator as well as his penchant for exaggeration.. And the white whale costume was consistent with their other costumes through the years.

Yeah, but I think when you rewatch some of the earlier episodes, you're reminded of how clever the show was. I mean, the pineapple episode, the Super Bowl episode, the hot/crazy scale. The show used to be brilliant at weaving together multiple plot lines, constant but relevant cutaways. Creative approaches to storytelling. Toward the end of the run, I can barely remember more than a handful of episodes where they did that successfully.

I've been periodically watching from season 1 for a little while. Just watch a couple episodes here & there when I don't have something else to watch. I just got to the Super Bowl episode and man, there were like 6-7 episodes in a row (including the Super Bowl one) that were just awesome. Season 2 was great.
