Since when have Ted and Robin been reunited? The writers spent a lot of time showing how done they were (namely, they had the Slapsgiving sex and then realized it was a mistake and then decided they didn't even need lingering sexual tension after seeing each other work out). Perhaps this article was a spoiler for an upcoming episode, in which case, it's my fault for reading.

But no, I'm just not sure this all makes sense.

I COMPLETELY agree! Yes, the chemistry between Ted and Robin is great, but it was made clear that they will not remain together. Any fan of the show is aware of this.

How I Met Your Mother absolutely must be picked up for another couple of seasons. This show is witty and hilarious and the best part about it is how extremely well written it is. Personally, I believe the show to be better than 'Friends', and that show ran for ages.

There was a line at the end of the episode when Ted finds Victoria at the bakery and Saget VOs "And that's how I met your mother." However, the creators clearly changed their minds and have moved on without referencing it. I've also heard that the Saget VO was removed from the DVD of season 1. Up until recently, I figured Victoria would be returning from her German internship to continue their relationship. Now it looks like the woman with the yellow umbrella is someone different.

Ugh. When low-brow dreck like How I Met Your Mother is critically acclaimed, we have set a new low for the bar.

Do we still afflict audiences with blackfaced actors as Africans or fu Manchu mustached, yellowfaced actors as Chinese? Thankfully no, times change. Successful film producers or directors gave up those ham fisted, thick-skinned casting decisions years ago.

Then why subject straight audiences watching romantic comedies and dramas with gays as romantic leads or womanizers?
Which producers or directors are so arrogant to caste a multi million dollar project that insults its intended audience i.e. the 'clueless straights'?
