BangerMain Posted January 16, 2013 Posted January 16, 2013 I don't think HIMYM is a fair comparison, for any sitcom. After all, the whole premise is looking back from the future at the already completed story. It's basically one long flash back, with smaller flashbacks. All other sitcom generally are creating the story as they go along. And, in the case of TBBT, some of the early to mid first season isn't really a good continuity comparison as the characters were developing. That said, the ducky tie, in HIMYM, was a brilliant execution of continuity. Great point about the structure of HIMYM dictating the continuity discipline of that show. SInce the entire series' events are supposed to have already happened from the point of view of the father they would have had to work out all the story items in advance. Probably had to plan out the entire year before scripting. TBBT sometimes is only a couple of weeks ahead of taping to air times and they are very flexible about story details and character traits.
