HIMYM and The Class Tonight  
Just got done watching How I Met Your Mother and while there was one aspect that I did not like, overall it was so, so good.

I LOVED Barney's play, seriously I was laughing so hard that I almost hurt myself and then when Marshall punched him in the ender saying "that's two" ... MAGNIFICENT in-joke. Just fucking hysterical!!!!!!!!!!! He's got three left!!!

Obviously, the thing I didn't like was Ted/Robin. I just don't like them, and am just icked out by the whole conceit of him telling his kids this and Robin ain't their mother. And of course, I still want Robin/Barney. Sigh. Hopefully, hopefully the end will be soon for Robin/Ted. I did however think the whole turning into exes was really interesting and well done. Yet again, this show does stuff that I don't expect to see on any other comedy.

Eh episode, I still fastforward the Duncan/Nicole scenes. And love the Ethan/Kat stuff. I kinda rather wish they hadn't gone here so quickly about the romantic angle to Kat/Ethan, but it was just slightly hinted at I expect we'll get some great Ethan pathetic neediness coming up and that'll be fun.

Arrrgh I've missed HIMYM for so long and I was like oh, I'll totally watch it tonight (because it's vacation week from teaching)and I forgot!! I'm so mad. But I can't believe Ted/Robin has lasted so long, I mean we literally know it's only a matter of time.

I haven't seen The Class yet tonight, but I watched the table read and the run through online, so basically I've seen it. Duncan and Nicole have grown on me as individual characters, wherein I really like both of them, but I'm just not invested in them as a couple. And Ethan/Kat, I'm really worried about the show being canceled, so I kind of want them to rush it at this point. But I know they've already filmed the season finale, so I have no idea what happens. Strangely, this is the one and only sitcom I watch right now, so it's possible I'm a bit over-invested in the fate of the show. But I'm sort of freaked out that it will be gone. It's probably not the greatest thing ever, but it consistently makes me laugh, so I like it.

I just don't watch their scenes period, unless Kat or Ethan are in them.

Yeah, I was thinking that too, if the show is canceled (and it's possible), then yeah give me SOME Kat/Ethan before the end.

I almost died when Marshall went up and slapped Barney. Too frickin' funny! And I am right there with you on the whole Ted/Robin thing. Like I'd really want to listen to my dad go on and on and on about the supposed love of his life, well until he met my mother. I was hoping at the end that the decision would be for them to break up. Guh, no such luck.

The Marshall/Barney bit at the end was classic and a wonderful example of the growing ITness of this show. Great, great, GREAT use of an in-joke.

Hate the Ted/Robin thing and I'll NEVER be an AH fan, so it's telling how much I love this show that I love it, even not standing those two (huge) compoments.

Ah, I was hoping they would break up too, but maybe it's the begininng of the end?!?!

I loved, loved, loved Marshall punching Barney. Hee, hee, hee. Also enjoyed all the little theatre stuff. The dogs stuff was kind of dumb but still kind of hilarious too. I didn't enjoy Ted and Robin very much this episode but it was okay.

The theater stuff was killing me. When he kept squirting the gun at her and Marshall complained, 'I'm never picked for audience participation,' I laughed so hard I think I scared my cats.
