More than seven years after How I Met Your Mother came to an end in 2014, co-creator Carter Bays wishes he could change some aspects of the hit comedy series.

Bays, who’s rewatching the comedy, documented his binging experience on Twitter, where he shared that he’d like to make a few modifications of his own.

“I won’t go into specifics but I’ll just say I would love to go into an edit room and go George Lucas on this thing and remove certain stuff I really wish wasn’t in there and I bet nobody would miss,” Bays tweeted on Friday.

Bays wrapped up Season 3 and said that he’d keep his commentary on the comedy to a minimum but questioned, “how am I only 1/3 of the way through this thing??”

“There’s so much of it,” he tweeted.

He also shared that he’d like to spin off Will Forte’s “Rebound Bro,” noting that the “hardest laughs so far” were anytime Forte’s character, Randy, came onscreen. An official spinoff, How I Met Your Father, is in the works at Hulu with Hilary Duff set to star. The series comes from Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger.
