This is a great show. The actors are all terrific and so is the writing.

Less of the insufferable Lily character is always a good thing. Maybe they can kill her off next year.

Since Marshall and Lily are already respectably married and have discussed starting a family, is there a particular reason they *didn't* write Alyson's pregnancy into the storyline?

thank god. there were too many sitcoms with babies popping out all the time--friends with twins, scrubs, etc. etc. it's annoying when babies show up on sitcoms because after 1 or 2 appearances after the birth, they mysteriously disappear.
