Last night’s episode of How I Met Your Mother was called “Little Minnesota”, and was one of the weakest efforts of the season, IMO. There were two funny parts, but everything else pretty much fell flat, making the ep seem to take a lot longer than the usual 30 minutes. I don’t know what’s going on with this show, but there have only been a few memorable episodes out of the first 11 of this season. I hope things change in the second half, because at this rate, the show, which faces the threat of cancellation every May, won’t retain enough viewers for CBS to justify bringing it back.
At any rate, I don’t have a whole heck of a lot to say about this one. The two parts I liked? One was Barney singing modified Christmas carols to express his interest in sleeping with Ted’s sister. The other was, of course, Barney doing the Robin Sparkles “Let’s Go to the Mall” karaoke at the Canadian bar at the very end of the ep.
Everything in between was meh, and didn’t leave me with a very good feeling about the show going into the hiatus. Like I said, I hope things pick up in the second half!
