As I said yesterday, covering the upfronts is going to get in the way of some of my reviewing this week. I watched last night's "How I Met Your Mother," but don't have time to say much about it, save that (like much of the season) it felt really, really super-broad, but I did like the baggage metaphor sight gag.

I'll have a longer review of the season finale, but what did everybody else think of this one?
