The show's been in a groove in terms of performances, pace and pithiness-the three Ps of successful sitcoms-but it's been a little strained when it comes to the emotional underpinnings that make this more than just an agreeable half-hour of comedy.
As usual, the best bits came from the rightly celebrated Neil Patrick Harris.
This season has not been the unmitigated disaster that some seem to think; there have been plenty of high quality episodes and a couple of series high points. But it's been a rough ride, especially since we got back from that mini-hiatus.
Last night's season finale of "How I Met Your Mother" was a nice, fairly low-key send-off to end the season.
Season five may not go down as one of the show's best seasons, but it still provided plenty of laughs and memorable moments, especially throughout the latter half.

Feb 26, 2017By far... the best season of the season
Oct 13, 2015Aahhh :(! When the a Comedy-Drama Series, completlly kills the fun part out of it and brings plot twists in, which have absolutly no sense, you no it's wrong. But not everything was bad. Some highlight episodes like 'Slapgiving 2: The Revenge on the Slap' were in. It was creative, innovative and funny. But then there were some episodes like 'Jenkins', that were not funny, or made sense, had a good story or anything like that. Well, the mainstory in the whole season was more average than good. And Barney again was the best in the whole season, especially in the beginning. Where dumb episodes like 'Robin 101' were funny, because of him. One thing I have to mention is that the writers, can make awesome final episodes! 6,5/10, not really that good.
Mar 20, 2015There's a lot more good than bad in this season, but it still doesn't change the fact that the show seemed to really want to grasp at straws to keep the show afloat. Regardless, this season delivered the most memorable HIMYM episode of all time with "The Playbook' - which alone ensured this season's success. Oh, there's plenty more to enjoy here...but that episode (and maybe "The Perfect Week") really helped Season 5.
Nov 19, 2014IN season 5, episode 10 which is Blitezgiving, Ted left his friends to prepare for the Thanksgiving Day. Then, Blitz's curse moved from Steve whos knowing as "Blitz" to Ted. Blitz's curse comes to a person when he or she leaves his or her friends to do something. It started from a person called Matt Blitz, then moved to different people through different generations. A Blitz person always says awwww maaaaan when his or her friends tell him or her about the great things they have done. Usually, great things happen when the person who knowing as "Blitz" leaves the place. Ted became Blitz in his group but not for a long time because Barney left his friends next day when they were looking for a place to spend the thanksgiving in. At the end, Steve Became Blitz again.
