Critic Reviews for How I Met Your Mother: Season 6

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

There were both good story arcs and individual episodes this season, and on the whole I do think it was a notable improvement from season 5.

"Big Days" felt like a fantastic step forward, while effortlessly reminding us of all the great things How I Met Your Mother has to offer.

This season has frustrated me with its tonal inconsistencies and occasionally clunky writing, but I still love the cast and the concept, and I still very much enjoy hanging out with these characters.

All in all, a solid opening episode. But even if it wasn't, it's a brand-new season, which means we are - until further notice - on a moratorium from complaining about this show.

The juxtaposition of those two images-the successful conception of a new life, and the destruction of an old building-is apt for a finale that embraces a lot of the oddness of this season and tries to find productive ways to build on the paradoxes.

This is a better season than the previous one mostly because of Marshall's storyline.
