I'm pretty sure it's on cbs.com, assuming you're in the U.S.

Re: How I met your mother

This is one of the things I love about this show - whenever a fictional webpage or website is mentioned, an actual site is created. For instance, itwasthebestnightever.com. And that was a hilarious idea, very Marshall.

They actually do create all the websites. Like, tedmosbyisajerk.com, slapcountdown.com, etc. The sites are hilarious....

Here is the link to the various websites:

Ted Mosby is a Jerk

Barney's Blog

Ted Mosby is not a Jerk

Lily and Marshall sell their stuff

Barney's video resume

Slap Countdown

These are some of my favorite links. There are few other websites as well. There's apparently even a tie-in novel regarding the Bro code.

Re: How I met your mother

I'm absolutely readdicted to this show. I've also got my housemates hooked on it too

We're slightly behind here in Europe but even the older episodes are well worth going through and enjoying. Love it!

By the by, anyone else seen that Barney is on Twitter too?

Really? That is so awesome. But somehow I'm not surprised.

Re: How I met your mother

Is everyone aware of the new book, The Bro Code by Barney Stinson? Apparently it's exactly what it sounds like. I must own this.

Anyway, another hilarious episode last night, just excellent, but there's one thing in particular that I want to mention. So, Barney tells Marshall he should just tell Lily he doesn't want to do the dishes, and then we cut to Barney's fantasy, his version of things. This is a convention "How I Met Your Mother" uses a lot, and a lot of sitcoms in general do too: having one character in a group start a story, and then cutting to it so that we can see an enactment. But something I (and probably few others) have always wondered is, what are the other characters hearing? Is the character telling the story describing things in exact detail, matching what we're seeing? Okay, well Marshall comes back into McLaren's and describes what happened when he tried Barney's suggestion - and Marshall tried (and failed) to do what Barney did in the fantasy we saw. What this means is that when Barney tells a story, he describes in exact, vivid detail, beat for beat. I know that was long-winded, but it's just a little thing that I found hilarious: it's another example of "HIMYM" having some fun with sitcom convention.

Re: How I met your mother

Heh, agreed. I loved when Marshall tried to make Lily sit on his lap and Lily didn't even respond to this. Jason was great this week. And I loved seeing more of Barney and Robin being dysfunctional, yet somehow awesome and happy. I think that once again a episode profited from the relative lack of Ted scenes.

Re: How I met your mother

LOL for me Ted has been one of the only decent things about this season so far. I'm really loving him this season. Barney/Robin - really really really really not liking them at all. I kind of want them to break up ASAP actually. It feels like all the story lines revolve around them so far and Marshall especially has been reduced to just a gimmicky guy who does lame stuff.

So this season has had some good episodes for me but the Barney/Robin scenes are pretty much dragging it down for me. Like I'm enjoying all the scenes with the others and when they are interacting with the others but when it's just them and their relationship on screen, I get bored pretty fast. I realize they are supposed to be this dysfunctional couple and what not, but to me, they aren't making it work at all. Plus, I still don't feel like Robin actually cares for him like he does for her. I wish they'd shown when and how Robin fell for him because I just ain't buying it.

Re: How I met your mother

I haven't seen any of the latest season (but you're not spoiling it for me I've managed to do that myself anyway). I just don't like Robin as a character at all, I just never warmed to her the way I warmed to any of the other characters.

Re: How I met your mother

Not gonna lie, I was a bit sad at the end. *sniffles* Even though they were cancelling out each other's awesome.

Same here, I love the show but somehow I can't seem to warm up to Robin... I don't know why though since I also find Ted really annoying but in a charming way whereas Robin I'm just totally indifferent to...

See, that's the thing: I think that's terrible reasoning. You know why? Welll, I'm glad you asked! Lily and Marshall? They're both completely awesome, but do they "cancel each other out?" No! They just doubled their amount of awesome to become a whole new kind of awesome!

I really don't know how you could possibly put it any more eloquently than that. I was really disappointed in last week's episode, though, mainly because I think it's too soon to break Barney and Robin up; after a whole season of watching Barney pine (seriously, pine) over Robin, and coming to root for them, I think they should have played this relationship out a bit longer. However, it was a very funny episode; Lily was particularly hilarious.

Re: How I met your mother

But Ted said something along the lines of everything taking its time, so there is still hope that they'll get back together in the future, no?

I do most certainly not approve of Don.

Re: How I met your mother

In your opinion.


Mashall and Lily's awesome doesn't cancel each other out and it's too bad that they went down that road with Barney and Robin, especially after Barney's pining after Robin for one whole season. However, I love seeing Barney back to his old form and I'm glad that they're all still friends.

Re: How I met your mother

FINALLY got caught up

I'm okay with Barney/Robin breaking up, they were getting a tad annoying. Although is it just me or were they implying that Robin's now gonna get married to Don? Don was funny though, who doesn't love a guy who comes to work in his underwear.

Also I love Lily and Barney's new way of saying 'you sonofa*****'. I'm afraid it's gonna catch on and hold tightly

Re: How I met your mother

Finally up to date on all of series 4, I just have to find somewhere now to catch up on series 5. Probably the funniest thing I have seen though is Barney's suit pjs and then himself and Marshell changing into night shirts. Hilarious

Re: How I met your mother

yes, Robin and Barney are more awesome when not dating each other. I think Barney's character is a huge pillar of the series, and him dating Robin, or any other chick for that reason, takes away the fun. I know there are people who watch the show basically because of Barney.
