After watching a hell of a lot of theatre at the Fringe, and then a hell of a lot of film at TIFF, I decided I’d apply my 100-word structure to the hell of a lot of television that’s premiered as part of last week’s Fall season opening.
There was obviously a lot to chew over after last season’s finale showed us Barney getting married, so it was nice to see the show dive in head-first. The opening episode, splitting between Barney’s mystery marriage and Ted’s old “friend’s” wedding was a nice jump, and showed us just how much Robin’s been pining for old Swarley. The second, though, really whetted my appetite as we settled into more familiar territory, but with the added reintroduction of season one’s “possible mother” Victoria. Nothing spectacular here hilarity-wise, but solid hitting and great story-telling. Plus (yay!) some “Groove Is In The Heart”.
