What I’m Watching: How I Met Your Father

How I Met Your Father: Season 2, Episode 3 “The Reset Button” (B)

I’m not overly fond of the future Sophie scenes, but I know that’s part of what comes with the territory with this show and its predecessor. Young Sophie, as played by Hilary Duff, is more than capable of getting herself into trouble, like when she and a hapless Jesse didn’t realize that the man who purchased her photo was a (potentially prominent) men’s rights activist. Jesse saying that Sophie repeating that they were friends made him think they were mortal enemies was my favorite piece of that bit, and it’s obviously going to take them much too long to realize that they are right for each other, even if Jesse is currently still focused on Meredith. Apparently Valentina already knows that she and Charlie are going to eventually end up together, but he’s starting to move on thanks to the coaching of his good friends Sid and Hannah following them using him and his very awkward date for her airline miles rewards perks. I highly doubt that someone who did that for a living would mention it every time she met someone new since this would obviously be the typical reaction. I’m hoping that Hannah needing to leave means that we’ll still see her either on the other side of the country or on visits since she’s a great addition to the show. I also enjoyed the very angry banter between Rachel and Valentina in which they forced Ellen to pick a side and helped her realize that she might need to work on some of her own issues.
