We Are Menis a funny, clever, independent situation sitcom airing on CBS’s Monday night line up after How I Met Your Mother. Now, it’s not the best new comedy breakout show of the fall, but it is a decent show to watch in between HIMYM and Sleepy Hollow. The show begins with the repercussions of lead Carter Thomas (Chris Smith) being left at the alter on his wedding day. His bride played by Fiona Gubelmann (FromWilfred) runs off with an ex-boyfriend and leaves her fiance to live in “temporary housing.” A place meant for people who don’t usually have “enough money to buy their own couch.”
There we are introduced to the rest of the band of brothers: Gil Bartis (Kal Penn), who tried to sleep with his bloated wife only to find out she was in an affair with a woman; Stuart Strickland (Jerry O’Connell) a broken man who has been ravaged by divorce courts (twice) and enjoys being shirtless (disgusting); and Frank Russo (Tony Shalhoub) a womanizing old man who is not letting his age get the best of him. And ironically enough I preferred seeing Tony’s bare chest more than O’Connell’s. Continue reading →
Last night was a wondrous night of laughs and getting to know an intricate character for a show that has been near and dear to my heart for nearly 10 years. How I Met Your Mother, finally introduced THE Mother. We have yet to know her name, but Lilly Eriksen was comforted on a train ride to the mythical town of Farhampton by a complete stranger who offered her up some “somofbitch” cookies.

Just two hours ago Entertainment Weekly graced the internet with even better news than the muppet sequel! How I Met Your Mother (my all time favorite current sitcom) has been renewed for its ninth and FINAL season. Personally I ask “why not just round it out to a decade of pure awesomeness?” But I do know that most fans (including myself) are getting pretty d*mn antsy about who the hell the mother is to Ted Mosby’s kids!
It is about time that we find out, but how do you hope season 9 will pan out?
Personally these are my hopeful predictions:
Season 8 will end with either meeting our elusive owner of the bare ankle OR it will end in a cliff hanger and we will meet her in the season 9 premier.
Season 9 will be based around the courtship between the intangible bass player and ever romantic Ted Mosby
Lilly and Marshall will become pregnant again (with a girl this time)
Hopefully Barney and Robin will have a happy, successful marriage with only a few typical newly wed problems and bumps in the road
Season 9 will either end in the marriage between Ted and future wife or with the birth of their first child. (Unless they are twins)
Well those are my thoughts on the legendary news that HIMYM will return for a final season. Apparently there was some hesitance in Jason Segal’s corner. How could the show ever last with out our (and Lilly’s) Marshmellow? I am sure he was hesitant because of how much he is doing outside of the TV series. But I am glad to have him on board.
What are your thoughts on the what could be the season 8 finale? What about the series finale? Comment below and tell me what your own predictions are1\!
