Firewall & Iceberg Show, episode 10: ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ ‘Veep’ & more

It’s a mixed set of emotions on this week’s Firewall & Iceberg video show. On the one hand, Dan and I have lots of positive things to say about HBO’s “Veep” and “Silicon Valley,” and mostly positive things to say about “The Mindy Project.” On the other, we also spent about half the show discussion the “How I Met Your Mother” finale, and you already know where I stand on that.

We’ll be back tomorrow with a podcast to discuss “Turn,” “The Walking Dead” finale and more, including more mail and possibly more “HIMYM” talk.

One thing to note: in the “Silicon Valley” segment, Dan and I neglected to mention that castmember Christopher Evan Welch died unexpectedly in December. His performance is perhaps the best thing about a show that has a lot of excellent things; if HBO renews it (and I hope they will), it’s a big loss.

The rundown:

0:00- 5:55– Mindy Project
5:55- 10:48– Veep
10:48– 27:30- HIMYM finale
27:30- 33:30- Silicon Valle
