    HIMYM returns for its 5th season at 8 p.m.

    At least both female cast members won't have to hide their pregnancies this season.

    I don't remember them having a laugh track before. Is that new? It completely ruined the show. If felt so out of place.
    Maybe it has always been there, but for some reason I noticed it tonight.

    I was more distracted by the bounty from the ladies' pregnancies.

    I don't buy the Robin and Barney relationship at all. Seems like the Rachel/Joey coupling they tried on Friends.

    I've always thought the two had better chemistry then other pairings.

    I noticed it last night myself and found it to be quite distracting at times. When something is funny, I'll laugh. I don't need a machine to tell me when...

    Otherwise, this was an enjoyable episode. The deja vu blind date was a fairly clever idea and was well-executed IMO.

    You probably are noticing it now because the show isn't really that funny anymore. But it's always had a laugh track even though it isn't shot in front of a studio audience (the show jumps around in time so much it's impossible to do live).

    I've never found anything sexy about Allyson Hannigan. When she did that Maxim shoot a few years back, I threw up in my mouth a little. Okay, it wasn't that bad, but I did make a face like I drank a shot of vinegar.

    It's hard for me to find anyone else sexy when Coby Smulders is around.

    As a proponent of the Robin-Barney pairing, I am surprisingly ambivalent about them "getting back together as friends."

    I know some people here will be happy. :)

    And interesting to see the "2.5 Men" ditz as a blonde.

    I'm happy they're splitting simply because it allows the show to get back to the formula that works best - Barney's (s)exploits are, to me, one of the best aspects of the show. We already get the "couple" stuff from Marshall and Lily, Robin is the "utility" player that provides comic relief or random storyline support, and Ted is the "glue" that binds the story together.

    Come to think of it, it's been several weeks since anything on Ted's job as a teacher (and how he actually MET the mother). They'd better throw us a bone on that storyline soon.

    I can't remember an episode that took that kind of chance with a concept. Pretty funny stuff.

    I haven't wanted a cigarette so badly since I quit almost seven years ago. Very funny stuff. I forgot to check the credits - was that really Harvey Fierstein doing the voice of "Smoking Lily" or someone imitating him?

    Regards,

    That's funny, it never occurred to me that the smoking voice was a famous voice cameo:

    Fierstein's voice is unmistakable. I knew it was him (or someone doing a spot-on imitation) even though I was in the kitchen taking a phone call the first time "Lily" used that voice.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Lily's smoking voice was hilarious. I thought it sounded like Fierstein but didn't think it was actually him. :lol:

    Marshall's visits with his 13-yo self were pretty funny too.

    Give Neil Patrick Harris a long singing number :)
    Otherwise a fair ep.. had some good moments, lots of progress on the mother; but we'll have to see how it all ends.
