We’ve waited four months for Barney to complete that adjective, and he does, on the season return of How I Met Your Mother. The episode itself is an average one at best–including a dull guest role by Mandy Moore as Ted’s rebound squeeze and a slightly better Enrique Iglesias turn as Robin’s–but there are promising signs for the future, including (1) a tantalizing glimpse of Your Mother, or at least of something that belongs to her, and (2) a foreshadow of payoffs to come regarding the Slap Bet. Wait for it!
As you can tell, I’ve actually watched the episode, so this is a bit of a cheat as JPTV entries go. I’ll actually be watching Heroes, as, I’m guessing, will be many or most of the regulars here. But has anyone given up on the show after last season’s merely whelming finale?
