    CBS on Thursday announced that the long-running comedy will wrap its 24-episode final season with an hour-long episode on Monday, March 31.

Unexpected move, but at least we don't have to wait until May to see how the rest of the wedding weekend plays out.

This season so far has been OK. Lots of filler. Or at least it appears to be filler - who knows what they'll revisit between now and the end.

Hated that Marshall spent freaking half of the final season away from the gang, though they did what they could considering Segel's schedule.

Also, there's been a frustrating lack of The Mother, but apparently, that's going to change quickly.

Won't ever get tired of Billy Zabka.

The first half of this season ended with three of the best episodes ever: "Bedtime Stories" (the all-rhyming episode...wow), "The Rehearsal Dinner" and "Bass Player Wanted"

Episode 200 will air at the end of January and is called...

You and I are seemingly the only ones who liked the all-rhyming episode. I thought it was really cute and clever but the majority of online critics and fans just loathed it. That episode and a few others aside, I agree that this season's wedding-only gimmick has been mostly a bust. It's no surprise that the season's best eps have been the ones that heavily flashed back to earlier events.

The early finale is a surprise, though I can see CBS wanting to get the show out of the way to clear room on the Monday schedule for some other Chuck Lorre sitcom that will be terrible but run for 10 years.

Wow, I had no idea. Just skimmed through TWOP's thread on the episode (forums.televisionwi​thoutpity.com), and those people just murdered it. I blame it on general frustration over so much filler in the final season, but that episode was awesome, thanks in no small part to

Yeah, I really miss MacLaren's, and I really love seeing it in flashbacks. The lack of stuff we've been used to seeing for the past eight years is just a sign of how life is changing for all these people. Instead of spending all their time at MacLaren's, they're spending it at the Farhampton Inn bar. It's sad for them and for us to be saying goodbye their old lives.

I am enjoying this season and I guess knowing this is the end does NOT make me miss McLarens as much as others. And I am glad they are not stringing it out to sweeps. HIMYM is not going to pick up nay new viewers so there is no need.

The rhyming episode was fun as a one time gig. And the Canada rap was great.

I do like how they are tying all of them meeting the "mother" before Ted. I am guessing at some point she has to interact with Robin.

I am still curious to see if they wedding goes off as planned. I am thinking they both get cold feet and walk away. Future Ted never mentions Barney and Robin together in his talks with the kids.

I have no problem either way if they are together or not. I doubt it is vital to the story.

I also wonder if we will get Bob Saget on screen if they flash forward to present day.

I enjoyed this show from season one until now. Not an all time great, but a reliable sitcom that provided me with plenty of laughs.

If the show ends with Ted dying from exhaustion from telling the story then it will be a satisfying end. I love the cast and stories, but Ted got old quick. I will miss Allyson Hanning being on TV or as I refer to her as second mommy to my daughter in front of my wife.

Well THAT would be an interesting ending.

Ted never bothered me as much as others mainly because I saw him as a means to an end for the show. He was the weakest link of the five, so he never got on my nerves.

And this show introduced the world to Barney Stinson. I don't think any character on TV has had as many catchphrases as him. He will go down as one of, if not the, favorite supporting characters on a sitcom of all times.

Finally caught up last night thanks to On Demand and just two quick thoughts: a) I'm enjoying the show, especially everything involving Vorenus and Pullo and b) I now have a HUGE crush on Polly Walker
