This season of How I Met Your Mother has been kind of a disaster, between Marshall’s terribly unfunny road trip away from the rest of the cast, Ted’s terrible attitude about single women, Robin’s over-the-top hatred of Barney’s mom, and the general intra-friend-group nastiness. But maybe this will help: Cobie Smulders tells E! that one of the upcoming episodes is all in verse. “It’s like every second line is a rhyme. It varies,” Smulders says. “The writers just nailed it. It’s so fun and they just made it so funny, but so lyrical at the same time.” Hey, something weird and creative! This is the most promising HIMYM news in ages.
