HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER: “The Over-Correction” Episode Recap

Every week, it gets alittle harder to write these recaps.  It’s tough to see something you once loved change so drastically for the worse, but that is what’s happened with How I Met Your Mother. Here’s the worst part: it was one thing when they strung us along with useless episode by useless episode when we didn’t have any concrete events to look forward to. Now, they aren’t even pretending that they aren’t riding this out for as long as they can, at the expense of their loyal viewers who have waited so long for answers.

We know Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin (Cobie Smulders) end up together. So why are they wasting our time with these episodes where Barney and Patrice are going out? Also, we get it: Robin doesn’t like Patrice. She yells at Patrice a lot. It was funny two seasons ago when it started. It isn’t funny anymore. Stop it please.

Not only that, but they spent the other storyline of the episode having the gang convince Robin that she is coming off as sad and desperate by trying to break the two up.  Awesome: more useless filler.

Oh. Speaking of useless filler. They brought back the playbook: again. I mean, it’s only been two weeks since they used that. If you are going to recycle old storylines, try not to do the same one over and over again. I get the idea of rewarding the fans for sticking with the show with old, inside jokes, but when you do it over and over again it just gets sad and lame.

This is the most disappointed I’ve ever been with this show. I don’t know why. It’s not like the episode was “terrible”.  It was pointless, but it wasn’t terrible. So many people have reached their breaking point with this show, but I’ve always been one to defend it.  I’ve never stopped watching, and at this point, I don’t think I ever will. But with rumors swirling of yet another season after this, I might have to if they keep churning out crap like. It’s just disappointing.

Sorry for the negative thoughts and the semi-rant. Thanks for sticking through it if you did. What did you think of the episode? Are you getting fed up too? Let us know in the comments!
