It's basically the definition of the show that did this.

I was more so thinking of The Office but agree to disagree

Both shows plummeted back to earth quickly and unexpectedly for me, that's for sure. The Office I consider much further gone, though; there's no getting back to the greatness it once had. I often see flashes of the HIMYM era I used to adore, it just never gets there for more than a few minutes or so.

See! It's tough, haha. I mean it's all personal choice because technically they are all comedies that deal with different situations, but certain ones just feel different to me. Mainstream vs not could be a good way to put it, but that doesn't seem fair

I generally separate them as "Laugh-track Comedies" vs. "Non-laugh-track Comedies" first and then go from there.

You have to add in "no laughter" as well

I disagree with this opinion of the show. Himym novelty simply wore off after the third/ fourth season and that has happened to every sitcom/comedy except friends. Friends avoided it by revamping the moment ross and rachel broke up..........and stayed broken up until the end,.

The office fell apart the moment jim and pam got married/had a baby because they were the endgame of the show. Their marriage simultaneously killed both characters plots and made it difficult to write them and keep them interesting. Most office fans would even tell you jim and pam were the reason they loved the show and not Micheal.
Jim and pam should have been played out a little longer instead of giving them a marriage and a baby in the same freaking season.

Himym is still the same show it was since season 2, it's just that their characters have changed so much since then.
Marshall and lily matured and started a family
robin became a career woman
barney ended his womanizing way and became more like ted
Ted........well, he hasn't changed if you forget the fact he selfishly broke up two marriages for his own gain.
The mother plot is the only thing that keeps the story fresh at this point in the game.

This is still my favorite show on TV right now. The emotional investment plus spot on humor (still strong after 7 years) is why there is no question. Parks is definitely 2nd and 3rd bounces around between Happy Endings and Community.

I would like to also apogize for that robin sister theory i made last week.

After watching 500 days of summer again, I've come to the conclusion the show will end like this



We will never know the mother......and i don't mind.

It's probably isn't "fare" to end a 8 year show with a devoted fanbase this way, but it's not the writers problem how the fans take it..

Minka Kelly was Autumn?!?!?! I could barely recognize her. I only recently started watching FNL, and find her absolutely intolerable.
I could totally see them casting her as the mother though.

You're in for such a fucking treat with that show.
