My icon does a fine job of summarizing my feelings about last night's episode. >:{

It's not so much that Barney and Robin broke up that irks me...that would've made me VERY disappointed anyway, but still...what makes me ANGRY is that it was written so damn BADLY. It was insanely OOC (they're just "too awesome"?!? WHAT?!?!), some of what they said was just downright confusing (they're too much the same seemed to be a big point of why they should break up...so then, why didn't Ted/Robin work I'd like to know? Oh, WAIIIT, they were too DIFFERENT.), there was no real development from the we rock as a couple vibe from Duel Citizenship to we're MISERABLE in this episode, and what's worst of all is that outside of the B/R thing, I found almost NOTHING funny last night. I know a lot of people found things to laugh at, but I thought everything felt very silly (and not in a good way) and forced.


I'm holding out hope that maybe this is all just a sweeps plot or something. Or that they do plan for B/R endgame, and they're just going to wait on it for a season or two longer. Who knows? I'm not giving up, but it's going to be hard shipping these two from now on. :(

Yeah, that's my only hope here, that they're saving them for later. I think becs1024 is right, they couldn't find enough funny plots with them together so they ended it quickly. I think they could be hilarious together, but I'm not on the writing staff. :(

The writing problem really stunned me this year because it made no sense!

All they had to do was keep writing them as the same Bros just with sex. Bros with Benefits, thinking they were "lying" as Lily put it in "Definitions". ♥

But instead they tried to turn them into Marshall/Lily Lite! :( Why?!?
