Robin’s boyfriend may be new to the group, but he already has the MacLaren’s crew pegged. While having best buddies to support you is great, having a codependent, incestuous group of friends meddling in your business is quite the opposite. There’s little doubt that the group’s antics are hilarious and even heartwarming at times, but the way Kevin sees thing, they may be doing more harm than good. Maybe the reason Ted and Co. can’t get certain aspects of their lives in order is because they’re too busy with each other to work on themselves. By living as a unit, this five-some is taking all the mystery out of the big city and stunting their own development. Even power couple Marshmallow and Lily Pad have their share of issues, mainly that while their love remains unbelievably sweet it’s also slightly worrisome. The fact that Robin already has her new boyfriend around seems a bit rushed, as if getting him “in” with the group is more important than getting comfortable with her new relationship. And Ted, whose only dream in life is to find the woman of his dreams, can’t even get through a first date without four additional voices in his head irrationally judging the prospect. As best friends, they’ve all talked each other off more than a few ledges. Given that they’re still dealing with some of the same issues as six years ago, though, it might be time to focus on themselves as individuals rather than living on as a five-headed, beer-drinking creature. Favoring history might make life easier to handle, but mystery might be what they need to finally find what they want — on their own.
