How I Met Your Mother: Season 5 Reviews

June 19, 2018
Last night's season finale of "How I Met Your Mother" was a nice, fairly low-key send-off to end the season.

What follows is HIMYM at its farcical best.

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.

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.

As usual, the best bits came from the rightly celebrated Neil Patrick Harris.

It was a season of ups and downs, with a handful of fantastic standalone episodes sandwiched within so-so storylines (and one that didn't work at all).

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.
