Storyline

During a game night Robin gets to meet Victoria. What actually was planned to be a funny night turns quite serious when Barney's former love Shannon gives an old tape to Lily which shows the "real" Barney. While watching the tape an embarrassed Barney storms off. When he returns, Barney tells a story from 1998, when he seems to have been a whole different person, and what made him the person he is today. To make Barney feel better, all others also tell their most embarrassing stories. Written by Sab

Nei Patrick Harris Is Again the Star
17 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For some reason this has a much shorter intro, no photos are showed, just the how's title flying to the screen.

Plot In A Paragraph: The gang gets to meet Victoria during a game night. But the night takes a funny turn when Barney's former love Shannon gives an old tape to Lily which shows the "real" Barney. While watching the tape an embarrassed Barney storms out. When he returns, Barney tells a story about what made him the person he is today. To tell the full story, he blackmails all others into telling their most embarrassing stories.

Whilst I enjoyed seeing Victoria (Ashely Williams) again, and I'm really rooting for them as a couple, this episode is all about Barney Stinson. Once again Neil Patrick Harris delivers the goods as Barney. We learn how he got his catchphrase "Suit Up" when he's handed a flier advertising suits. A pattern had emerged on this show that the best episodes feature Neil Patrick Harris's Barney Stinson heavily. Oh how the Emmys have robbed that man.

The transformation scene is hilarious.

One part I didn't like was the montage at the end, showing that despite the awesomeness of Victoria, Ted is still obsessed with doing things for Robin (and he keeps it a secret from Victoria)
