We are now four episodes into the brand new series of the hit CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother and so far it has been less than inspiring. It seems that the writers are intent on making sure the viewers know that Ted is more obsessed with destiny than ever. They also seem to have camped up Barney as if to play to Neil Patrick Harris own personality.
There have already been a number of scenes this season where Barney is either singing or dancing or both and it all seems very theatre. They have gone way over the top with these scenes and it seems to play to the strengths of the, all singing, all dancing Neil Patrick Harris. Where has the Barney we have grown to love gone?
Anyway, we wanted to find out whether it was just us being overly critical, so we decided to do a poll and the results were rather interesting. While the majority of the people did find that How I Met Your Mother is still awesome, it was a very close call, with 44% still loving it while 41% feel it has lost its way. The other 15% were undecided but it does appear that this season of How I Met Your Mother has the audience split and is slowly losing its way.
