Well, well.. back they come.

I really dislike Hannigan's new hair. It just looks.. weird, almost gothic, but she doesn't have the other features to make it fly.. so it just looks creepy.

Now we have to find out how long the storyline about the tattoo goes on.. or if he gets it laser removed later.

I'm also interested in finding out how the heck he got into his own bed.. Posted Image

did anyone else notice that Hannigan wasn't wearing a bra before the line came out? Posted Image

also i'm sure you all caught the yellow umbrella at the end.

the season premiere was actually not as funny as previous great episodes, but who cares? it's another season of HIMYM. and we got to see Cobie in a bikini!!!!!!!!! Posted Image

So what's with the perpetuation of Iglesias's rumored endowment (or lack thereof)? Either he's a glutton for punishment or a really good sport...

I hardly recognized Alyson Hannigan in this episode. This show seldom makes me LOL, but I do chuckle a bit here and there. Sometimes I think it's because the cast is also doing a lot of the laughing at one another's expense. But as long as Cobie's on the show, I'm onboard.

I love Willow (Lilly) to death, but I agree her hair was distracting.

The only time I laughed was the end, when Barney saw the countdown on his laptop. Other than that, this premiere left me cold.

Fun episode, but not legendary. It's a fun show (I started watching last season). But I'm not sure I'll make it a regular thing. I think I'm most looking forward to this show going into syndication I can enjoy it at 6pm before dinners, or late at night before bed. Posted Image

I've always really liked this show. Neil Patrick Harris as Barney is just classic. And while I did like last night's episode, some of the early scenes with Barney just seemed kind of forced to me, almost like they had to throw in all of his "catch phrases" just to remind people of them. BUT .... all was forgiven by the end of the episode with them getting Ted to realize he had the "tramp stamp" Posted Image

i hardly recognized mandy moore, not because of the costume but because of the size.

I loved it, but was totally confused by the countdown. What the hell was that all about?

Was it last season? The two had a slap bet.. the winner had the advantage of being able to cold slap the other across the face.

But there were some misgivings as to what happened, and the winner was declared three different times and different information came out. So they both slapped each other.

At the end, Barney was the loser, and he had a choice: take 10 slaps in a row right now.. or five dished out randomly at any time, at the winners choice.

Barney chose the five.

It was used ONCE in that season, where Barney out of nowhere got slapped (as he got on stage and tried a pretentious routine in a later episode). So there are four slaps left that can be dished out on him at any time Posted Image

No, he got slapped twice. Posted Image

I thought Marshall was only granted three slaps, not five.

nope it was "5 indefinitely" or "10 then and there". when Marshall kept quiet about the non-marriage, Barney got 3.

And oddly enough the counter ends on Monday Nov. 19th at 8:27pm.

So that's the episode where we will most likely see what happens, 3 minutes before the show ends. Posted Image

Neat little gimmick.

November sweeps, baby! So is the titular Mother the blonde or the brunette at the end, leaving the bar?

Which one was carrying a bright yellow umbrella? I must admit I didn't notice and I've already dumped the show from my DVR. (Premier week is rough, especially since I've been sampling a lot of shows and very busy with work. The other night my HDD was 85% full.) Regards, Joe

Actually it was the other way around. 10 all at once right away or 5 whenever Marshall felt like handing them out. Since the slap countdown ends at 8:27, I'll bet it's the last shot of the episode.

Come on, people! Don't you know how to use Wikipedia? Posted Image

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slap_Bet:

"Lily then gives Marshall the right to slap Barney either 10 times in succession or 5 times for all of eternity, pending Barney's preference."

"Barney has received two slaps from his five-slap punishment:
* One, at the end of this episode a few minutes after losing the bet
* Two, at the end of "Stuff," while performing his one-man show"

Isn't that the same thing as "5 indefinitely or 10 then and there"? Posted Image
