Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
It will happen during the season finale of: How I Met Your Mother." Two of the lead characters will announce plans to have a baby.
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says that can build a foundation for some funny material. But, he asks, would this really be such a good idea?
The series, he notes, has existed for five seasons with some pretty outrageous stuff. But a baby? Dropped in with five misfits who wouldn't recognize a responsibility if it dropped on their toes?
Sokolsky says other series have done well with baby episodes, but they always had a responsible figure to step in when the principal characters fouled up. But who could take over when these zanies go astray?
Or are plans already being made for a grandma like Betty White? Or maybe Lassie could become available.
