TV Roundup: How I Met Your Mother
“Have you read my blog?” As a man who prides himself in his own web posts, I’m sure Barney Stinson would support our efforts here at Onward State. Now it’s time to suit up and practice those cliche one-liners because Swarlos, Marshmallow, Lily, Robin Sparkles, and Teddy Westside are back for round six.
New and old viewers join the cast which includes Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan, and Jason Segel as they continue into the sixth season of the hit sitcom How I Met Your Mother. There’s a character for everyone to relate to, whether you’re attracted to the charm of a bro’s life (Barney), the challenges of a struggling architect plagued by romance (Ted), the desperate early mornings of an emerging news anchor (Robin), or the banter of a newlywed couple (Marshall and Lily), I promise you will become a satisfied and devoted fan.
After a fifth season full of disconnected story lines, show creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas plan on bringing the show back to the emotionally-charged narrative it started as. Need a quick-tongued recap to freshen your memory for tonight’s premiere? Say no more.
It’s important to remember the goal of this sitcom: to find out how Ted Mosby meets his wife. With that being said, the series theoretically ends when this mystery is all wrapped up. After some half-hearted Internet stalking, it’s safe to say I have no idea whether or not this is the last confirmed season of How I Met Your Mother (and if you know it is, don’t ruin it for the rest of us).
According to the sneak peak, tonight’s episode reportedly starts at a wedding and transitions through the typical flashback format as the show goes on. For the upcoming episodes: Lily and Marshall are looking to start their own family, Barney continues being awesome, and Robin awaits the return of her Canadian mall-touring popstar partner Jessica Glitter.
For those die-hard fans out there (and anyone else interested in some quality internet humor) check out the following links when you need to get your HIMYM fix:

This should be enough to hold you through the day until the premiere tonight at 8 p.m. on CBS, but until then, practice those laser tag moves, tailor your suits, and keep living legendary lives. Rogo, out.
