I'm not sure how many people are still watching, I know on the old ppk quite a few of us commented on the decline in the series but I'm still watching!

Anyway, did anyone watch the new episode tonight that featured the countdown from 50 to 1? Does anyone know what it meant?

Countdown to Marshall's dad.

I was wondering about the numbers as well. Wasn't expecting it to end the way it did, since the whole rest of the episode was so light-hearted.

I love HIMYM! And I really loved last night's episode. My facebook news feed is just a bunch of babies freaking out about the serious subject matter...that lasted less than 30 seconds. Oy vey!

I had NO IDEA about the number countdown until someone posted this on facebook:

The last season I saw was 5, but I think the show has only gotten better, not worse! How far into the 6th season are they?

How did I miss that?! I never saw the countdown. But I just knew something was going to happen to his dad. It's good to know Alyson Hannigan still has the crying face that breaks my heart.

I really liked when Robin showed up and saw Alexis Denisof (forgot the character name) with a bear, a bra, and bald. Greatness.

LOVE this show! (not as good as it used to be but still good)

what a sad episode. Kind of reminds me of Scrubs. 7 out of 10 episodes ended as a real downer, but that was a medical show so i understand. still kinda depressing though

loved Scrubs too. I miss chocolate bear.

I don't know because we noticed it straight away and then didn't pay attention to the plot because we were playing spot-the-number!

Poor Marshall.

I miss Scrubs too but I re-watch it so often that it's like it never ended ;)

I watched this morning and didn't notice the countdown; only found out about it on the internets.

Have to admit, the ending made me tear up. Marshall's "I'm not ready for this" really hit me seeing as the characters are right around my age and in my morbid moments I try to imagine how I will handle it when my parents aren't here anymore. I guess none of us is ever really ready.

It's been funny the last few times! Such a relief!

I didn't know about the numbers either, though I did wonder why there was a giant 6 on Lily's medical file.

I usually suck at that kinda stuff. I rarely watch anything with my full attention. Usually I'm on the laptop or writing while watching tv.

Me too, I was on my laptop last night so I had to stop and pay attention because otherwise I miss entire sections of an episode then wonder why I'm so confused!

Totally missed the countdown. LOVE seeing Alexis Denisof back - he needs to be on my tv more often.

It still weirds me out that he doesn't have an accent! It's kinda funny because I am always, ALWAYS surprised when he speaks in his regular voice. Haha.

Oh my god, Alyson Hannigan still has the most heartbreaking cry face I've ever seen.

This is exactly what I was thinking. I'm about that age too, and I hate facing the thought of my parents aging and eventually not being here. Seriously can't even think about it. Especially now that I work with elderly clients and hear about all kinds of things, it's tough!

I don't watch this show often, so the ending surprised me! I didn't see that kind of seriousness coming. Though I did miss the first half of the episode.

I do like this show though, and big doofy Jason Segel.

I haven't watched in a long time, but I caught it last night! It didn't even register at first that Robin's nemesis was Alexis because his voice was all wrong! I wondered why they zoomed in on the beer can in Marshall's dad's workshop, and what was up with the 6 on Lily's file, but I didn't think about it.

From the beginning of the episode, I had this horrible feeling about Marshall's dad, but I didn't know what was going to happen.

Yeah, me too. I try to think about how I will react when my dad in particular dies, because he is not in the best of health and I've always been the definition of a daddy's girl - I just can't. It's a scenario I have to willfully ignore all knowledge of unless I want to end up a sobbing mess. So the end? Definitely got me.

omg the ending made me so sad!!!! i think it really resonated with me because one of my big fears is that something will happen to my parents before my kids (my hypothetical future kids, that is) have a chance to know them for the amazing people they are.
depressing!

We watched this last night and I totally cried. Sap.

I always love the Canadian fun-poking in the show, but I have a question. What do Americans call hydro poles? I didn't realise that it was a Canadian thing!

Well, in the episode she said it was a "Canadian telephone pole" didn't she? Or did I mishear? Anyway, I'd guess that hydro poles are what we call telephone poles...
