'How I Met Your Mother': Why have they turned our hero Ted into such a jerk?


It's hardly news to call Ted Mosby a whiney loser, a guy so pathologically unlikable you wonder how he managed to find and keep such awesome pals. But until last night, I had defended Ted, called him 'only annoying sometimes,' totally not Ross 2.0,' and insisted that being single in this couple-centric world is tough enough. But no more! Sorry, kids, but last night's 'Say Cheese' proved that website from ages past was right: Ted Mosby is a jerk.


Last night, he brought 'another dumb skank' none of his friends knew to Lily's intimate birthday dinner - and then he acted indignant that his friends were less than thrilled. I'm not sure why Lily's frustration was directed at the apparently dozens of women Ted's brought to group functions over the years - why are they the skanks, and not Ted? - but the point remains: It is unbearably obnoxious to bring strangers to small gatherings. Especially unannounced. When you are not the host. Whoa, all those years of reading Miss Manners have finally paid off for me!

that was the point of the episode that it is stupid to bring people you barely know to intimate gatherings with your friends.

i think last episodes are really bad... sometimes they sing a song sometimes they just show kinda magic... there is no power anymore i think they should stop to produce it and leave us a nice memory ... last episodes really suck.

max I agree with you on ted he is a total jerk yet at every turn he attacks barney what ted does to women is worse then what barney does ted allows the women to become emotionally invested in him then he dumps them the worst case I can remember is the other shirt incident where he broke up with natalie on her answering machine on her birthday then three years later he got back together with her dated for three weeks then dumped her again on her birthday .In say cheese he showed no consideration for lily or the group by bringing someone he met a day or two ago to her birthday whom he has known for 13 years.what a tool
