How I Met Your Mother: The Possimpible


The Possimpible, the latest episode of How I Met Your Mother was simply delightful (simplightful?).


One of my favorite parts of HIMYM are the flashbacks, and this episode was chock-full of them: Robin as a newscaster in Canada, Ted as Dr. X in college, Lily as a hot dog eating champion, and Lily and Marshall as college students knockin' on Ted's radio show.


It didn't take a genius to figure out that Robin wouldn't be deported, or that Barney would be the one to save the day, but it was still a good storyline nonetheless. I kind of like that the Barney-Robin lovefest has taken a backburner but still shows up in almost every episode.


No real development on who "the mother" is in this episode, but quite frankly? I don't really care. I know there's a lot of buzz around who "she" will be, probably mostly due to the narration and the title of the show, but to me there's so much more to these episodes- and it's more about the friendships and the inside jokes, and the memories than who the actual mother is.


Last weeks episode with the snowstorm bored me, so I'm glad that this week was able to redeem itself with some quality jokes (Marshall a secret dancer?? fabulous! Barney's video resume??) and a well-rounded amount of sentiment and fun!

I love how they showed Alyson Hannigan's baby belly without writing it into the storyline. I had heard they were going to write it in, though it seems a little late, and I'm not sure how they could write it in and still have the same show. In any case, I dug the little hot dog baby belly.

i agree, good episode. would have been nice to actually see marshall dancing though.and you're right about the mother thing. when we find out who she is it will probably be the end of the show. so i prefer not knowing!

For me, I loved it when Barney was prepared to propose to Robin to save her. Did he even realize what he was going to do? He was just full of the awesomeness. And Robin brings up a good point: What footage did he already have of her?
