Big Rob got me thinking about television last night and I’m going to just say it. How I Met Your Mother is the new Friends, except if Friends didn’t suck and was actually funny.
Seriously, CBS doesn’t know what they have on their hands. As far as classic sitcoms go, this one has to be one of the funniest shows going. And by classic I don’t mean best ever, I just mean in terms of a live studio audience, laughtrack, and four cameras as opposed to the trendy single camera sitcoms in vogue these days.
Last night’s episode was another good one; “Slapsgiving” had Marshall (Jason Siegel) taunted and tormenting Barney about getting pimped slap. The show has been building to this episode for some time, even going so far as to have an online countdown to the event.
If anything, “Slapsgiving” went so far to prove that Siegel is just as funny as Neil Patrick Harris, even if he doesn’t get as much love. As always Ted is clearly the weak link on this show.
“You Just Got Slapped”
p.s. I never thought it’d be possible to undue my unrequited love for Willow Rosenberg, ney Alison Hanigan, but Robyn Sparkle’s just gets more attractive with each episode.
