2 Of 5 There Are Some BIG Positives
Let's start with the biggest positive: Since 'How I Met Your Mother' has already built up such a massive fan base and credibility for top-notch entertainment, they will easily recruit the best talent needed for a group we can grow to love as much as we grew to love Ted's group. The writers of "How I Met Your Mother" have also proven they can write hilarious scripts and tie things together in uncanny ways. So it will be interesting to see the "Mother" and her group of friends hanging out in New York as she looks for her one true love. And since their go-to hangout will be MacLaren's, this means the Mother's group and Ted's group will be crossing paths during the night for years.
Deadline also reports that Emily Spivey, creator of the hit show Up All Night, will be heading up this new spinoff series. It will be interesting to see how she puts together what happened during the Mother's life for these last 8 years. It's a complete flip of the script! And most people already love the Mother, Cristin Milioti. However, could there be some negative issues at play?
