HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER “Big Days” Advance Review

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER returns for it’s sixth season this Monday September 20th on CBS. I got the opportunity to check out the first episode, “Big Days”, of the new season today and thought I’d share my thoughts on it with you!

As you may recall, season 5 ended with Robin turning down a job offer to be with Don, only to have him accept the job himself and move away. Lily and Marshall decided to have a baby and Ted dates the roommate of his soon to be wife (whom we never got to see, unless you count her ankle). Barney spent season 5 on the rebound after his breakup with Robin and courted as many girls as possible.

Season 6 picks up right where 5 leaves off. In “Big Days”, Lily gets upset when Marshall tells his Dad they are trying to have a baby. Ted bumps into his ex Cindy (Rachel Bilson) and Ted and Barney both call ‘dibs’ on her hot companion. Ted wonders if this girl might be Cindy’s mysterious roommate? Robin is down and out after the breakup and Barney scolds her for looking haggard.

I thought “Big Days” was a great episode and it gives you some hope that we might finally see Ted get married this season (I hope!). How I Met Your Mother is a show that never lets me down and Season 6 should be no exception. Barney delivered one joke relating to hot girls and cartons of milk that I still can’t stop laughing about. Here’s my ultimate wish-list for season 6:

Ted meets the mother of his children and gets married
Marshall and Lily have a baby
Robin gets back with Barney

What about you? What would you like to see happen in season 6? Don’t forget to watch the Season 6 premiere of How I Met Your Mother this Monday September 20th at 8:00 pm ET/PT on CBS.
