Did You Know?


When the guys are at the tailor and the tailor speaks a foreign language, Marshall says he's speaking Ukrainian. The tailor is actually speaking Russian, and he doesn't say that Ted's moping is disrupting his process as Barney claims he understands. He actually says, "Boys, you're in my way. I need to finish this job." See more »

What A Waste
17 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After a great last episode they do this... I am seriously not happy the powers that be have wrote Victoria (the delightful Ashley Williams) from the show. Appalled. Appalled I tall ya.

Plot In A Paragraph: Ted and Victoria must decide if they should break up or try a long distance romance when she is offered a scholarship in Germany (Why?? Why??) and Barney takes Marahall to his tailor to be fitted for a suit, While lily goes shopping for a wedding dress.

Not happy with this at all, just so they can go back to Ted and Robin now that Robin realises she likes Ted. I call it now, Ted and Victoria break up and he is with Robin by the end of the season. What a waste of a lovely character and great actress. (Not to mention she was HOT!!) Bring her in, make us like her and then get rid of her?? Madness.

I'm guessing after the show got picked up for a full season they were not sure if they should stick with her character or revert to the Ted Robin story from the first few episodes. The rest of this first season has a lot of picking up to do after this disappointment.
