  • Love love LOVE Andrew Ranells. My biggest hope for this is that they give him a musical number.

  • As a longtime fan of the show, I’ve tried to find things to love about this season…but it’s getting tough. 2 more episodes without the group together? Ugh.
    They need more Marshall and they need more of the mother.

  • It’s so baffling when effeminate guys (gays) have facial hair

    • It’s so baffling that ignorant people (Emily) can use a computer.

      • Ignorant Emily makes a good point. As a gay, I’m constantly surprised every morning when I discover that I need to shave, having miraculously grown facial hair through the night. I mean, doesn’t my face know that I’m not a real man?!

        • True. But being less of a man is why I grew my facial hair in the first. So maybe I can fool people and just try to be “normal” cause that’s what we all want, isn’t it?

          • You’ve really got it all figured out. I envy you and your impressively rugged and hetero beard ;)

    • I’m going to guess that you’re easily baffled…

    • Google ‘gay bears’ and prepare to have your mind blown.

  • Why do I feel he could be the mothers current Boyfriend?

  • Wow! Last night rhyming episode was PAINFUL! It reminded me I am only watching this once fun show because it’s the last season. And now they are doing a spin-off…..? Why?

    • Completely agree. I could barely stomach last night’s episode & thought it was just ridiculous filler/gimmick taken too far. Not even funny, in my opinion. One of my friends, however, thought it was “hysterical.” FYI, Marshall’s decision to walk five miles? Please, Long Island has cabs.

      • At least deciding to walk is within character (like that episode where they competed over the quickest way to get across New York).

  • I hate the “seasons’ worth of episodes taking place in one weekend”. Watched the first few episodes this fall and that was it.

  • This show has gotten ridiculous! The legacy of the show will be ruined by this season! The scripts this season are completely and utterly pointless! Whose bright idea was it to have the entire season encompass one weekend? How can you possibly get a season’s worth of quality shows out of a single weekend? I have never been more disappointed and disgusted by a show in my entire life. If I were a member of the cast, I would demand scripts of greater quality. It is shameful how low this once quality sitcom has sunk! I wish it would have ended last season! This season seems to be nothing more than a money grab!
