How I Met Your Mother - "Spoiler Alert" - 11/12/07

"Spoiler Alert"
Spoiler:
When Ted thinks he has met a wonderful girl, the gang can't help but point out a deal-breaking flaw, that eventually leads to a heated exchange of barbs among the group.

Great episode. I loved the whole "glass shattering" everytime something was revealed to everyone. (Especially the future fiance at the end of the show. (Glass Shattering) That was perfect!

(The similes/metaphors for Lilly's chewing were HILARIOUS!)

Were those pretzels from ace hardware?

Kinda disappointed that they didn't celebrate with the giant champagne bottle

I am glad to see the writers maintaining the continuity throughout the series, in regard to Ted knowing sign language at the end.

Here's hoping they don't forget all that during the months and months of off time...

This was one of the funnier episode this season for this show for me.

Needed a little more of the Lindsay Price jogging sequence.

Most recently in the episode where Barney was telling the story of how he met Ted, he introduced Ted (whom he just met minutes before in the men's room of the bar) as his deaf brother to a girl and Ted and the girl started talking to each other in sign language.

I would love to see a clip of a dog pooping on a baby.

Great episode. I love the ones where they get everyone involved in (basically) the same storyline.

Actually, when you do an acronym for a show, it should be in all capital letters -- HIMYM, not himym.

[singing]Got to do the acronym in all caps, otherwise your acronym is all crap[/singing]

I actually started to get annoyed at this post at first and then it hit me and I literally started cracking up.

The giant champagne bottle was a one time thing I think, don't know if the bar replaced it or not.

Everytime I read HIMYM I think "hymen." Not a good acronym, or maybe the best one ever?

Considering they were unsure as to how long it had been there, and believed that it had, at one point, contained a fish... Replacing it probably wasn't a priority.

They keep improving every season. I think this has been the best one so far.

And next week... the last (?) slap!
