How I Met Your Mother - Season 7 Premiere. (spoiler warning)

Last night, we had a two-part How I Met Your Mother episode, complete with Punchy’s wedding and Barney trying to get Nora back, even though Robin has feelings for him. And chemistry. Although, was that chemistry or a just a really good dance routine? (One of us absolutely thinks the couple has chemistry and both of us hope they end up together.) Not digging the song they chose for the dance routine though.

Obviously Barney is marrying Robin. Why would the show bring back their crush if they weren’t going to end up together? As cool as Nora is with Barney, the show has to know that we love Robin more. It would satisfy a lot of viewers if Barney married Robin. He actually likes her as a person and respects her (“You’re your own daddy”…remember?), so that would be someone he would marry. Of course, Nora is forcing him to respect her too. But we really think it’s Robin, because why would any other bride of Barney’s ask to see Ted before the ceremony.

The show mocked itself by having Future Ted tell his kids that the story is long and not even close to being over. We got some flash forwards and flashbacks, and not in a cool LOST way. In a “messing with us” way. Can we please meet the mother and have a season with her?

We really enjoyed “Beercules,” Marshall’s streaking alter ego. We actually chuckled out loud at Ted being all over youtube (complete with a remix!) for breaking down while giving wedding toasts. Poor Shmosby. He realized that he’s become more cynical about finding his true love. Ted, as people who know the name of the show you are on, we have a song for you.

Robin and Ted both had strong speeches this episode. Serious tones are not this show’s forte, although it did alright with Marshall’s dad’s death. Most people have felt Ted’s pain at some point in their lives, thinking that maybe they won’t ever find the right person. Robin telling Barney how she felt under the guise of helping him get back with Nora was sad. And stupid. She shouldn’t have done such a good job! Barney was striking out with women on purpose, and according to Lily it was because he still likes Robin. Oh Barney. The fake fingernails were disgusting (almost as nasty as real long ones).

We would totally play Edward Fortyhands if forty’s were sold in our state. In the end, Victoria came back. She was a sweet girl that Ted really cared about and one of us loved. One blogger screamed when she came on TV. The other blogger has trouble remembering Victoria, and it feels like she is the only one. Most other people we’ve talked to are really excited. It looks like a re-watch is in order. We know she isn’t the mother though, so don’t get too attached.

This premiere was sooooo much better than last year’s. We love when the gang flashes back to their crazy college days of sandwiches, and now, apparently, streaking and forty’s. We like where this season is going so far, and it’s Jennifer Morrison-free! (Come on, nobody liked her on this show.) One more thing: We don’t like Robin’s haircut. And she looks better with a little meat on her. Her face was too harsh last night! It's like Up All Night said, "There comes a time when you have to choose between your face and your ass." (If you don't know what we're talking about, go watch Up All Night, because it's worth 22 minutes.) Robin, that face is too good to lose.

First episode grade: A-
Second Episode grade: B

Overall: B+
