You Be the Judge: Britney on Mother, The Remix

Tonight was the big night (or the second big night, more accurately)! Britney Spears was back on How I Met Your Mother, reprising her role as the slightly clueless, slightly stupid, completely Ted-obsessed Abby.

I want to hear your reactions to her performance.

Mine are as follows: I know you shouldn't bite the hand that feeds you. What I mean is...I know that How I Met Your Mother owes a large part of its renewal to this newfound Britney Spears partnership, so I won't rip her apart. That being said, I can't help but feeling like whenever Britney speaks that she sounds very forced. It's like she's trying too hard (at least she's trying though, so I give her credit for that) and it just doesn't quite work.

At any rate though, Britney wasn't even a major part of the episode, so I wasn't so offended that I got angry.

More concerning though is that judging by the end of tonight's episode as well as additional statements made by the show's creators, it seems as though HIMYM is still leaving open the possibility for additional Britney Spears appearances. My Britney patience is starting to wear thin - any more Britney and I will be offended, because I just don't think she is actually adding anything to the show (beyond ratings).

So now it's your turn! What did you think of Britney on HIMYM: The Remix as well as the episode in general?

Yeah I gotta be honest and agree with other postings about this most recent episode. It was slightly disappointing. I felt that the flow wasn't really there, the Marshall and Lily part worked, they had a great flow to their story, but everyone else was just jumbled I thought. No real substance to the Barney Britney part. I am still excited for the up-coming season finale, and overly excited about a fourth season. I just hope they get back to the writing they had in seasons 1 and 2, just brilliant.

I thought season 3 was just as brilliant. Even though I do agree that the Barney Britney part was annoying.As long as they don't take another amazing show off, they can add little bits of brittney all they want.
