How I Met Your Mother – A little too much filler for my tastes

As 'How I Met Your Mother' plots the course for the season finale, 'Good Crazy' is just a little too much filler.

- Season 7, Episode 22 - "Good Crazy"

I’ve never been one to complain about filler episodes, especially when they bring the funny. “Good Crazy” was funny, but it was all filler. How I Met Your Mother‘s two-episode season finale airs in two weeks, and several pieces had to be moved into place to amp up a little tension in the mean time … except I’m not sure the pieces needed to be moved in advance.

That Lily would give birth in the finale wasn’t a big reach. Robin and Ted were eventually going to start talking again, and the seeds of Barney having a problem dealing with Quinn’s job have been there for several weeks now. Don’t get me wrong, drunk Marshall is always a good time — and I could totally see him as the know-it-all that tries to show-up the Good Parenting instructor — but I just wanted a little more in the season’s penultimate episode.

  • My favorite parts of the online profile: “Favorite Movies: Nothing beats Ghostbusters but a close second would be Die Hard … or A Moeda Colector… or really anything from the guy who played Argyle in Die Hard’s catalog,” and “…. At the end fo the day, all I really want is a guy to correct me on things like grammar and punctuation and where apostrophe’s go. Because that’s really hot, Ted.”
