I took four seasons (and arguably a little help from time-slot lead-in THE BIG BANG THEORY) but audiences (and best of all, the Emmy nominating committee) finally discovered what this TV Addict has known for years now: HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER = Awesome! What’s more, it’s about to get even awesomer (and yes, if Barney uses it, it is in fact a word!) “For a long time the mother was in this big vast ocean of New York City and we ended the season with Ted teaching at Columbia University,” teased executive producer Craig Thomas in a recent interview with EW’s Michael Ausiello. “Having Ted literally in the same room as the mother has added a great suspense element in the writing,” And speaking of suspense, what about the relationship fans have really been buzzing about all summer long, that of Robin and Barney, whose will-they-or-won’t-they status was left somewhat up the air after last spring’s finale. Well, judging from a third episode spoiler that has Barney taking classes in “Robin 101” from Ted (Robin’s ex), we’re fairly confident in saying that “Robney” (or is it “Barbin?”) are going strong. Which yeah, we’re just gonna say, is kinda legen… wait for it… dary.
HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER returns to CBS on Monday, September 21 at 8PM. (E! in Canada)
