Storyline

On Halloween, Robin and her new boyfriend Mike meet for a Double Date with Lily and Marshall, who are eager to win the costume contest. Robin turns out as someone who is not so much into "couple things" so the dinner is not as pleasant as expected. Barney actually wants to take Ted with him to a Victoria Secret's Party, but Ted heads for a party on the roof of his apartment house, where he a few years ago met a beautiful woman, which is just called the "slutty pumpkin". Eager to meet her again, because he never had the change to call her because he lost her number, he waits for her every year at this party. Written by s

Could this penguin be the slutty pumpkin?
23 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

I now realise that there isn't too much to review on an episode-by- episode basis. And since I'm the only person who's going to enjoy reading these reviews in the future, I'll simplify my reviewing method (for certain titles) to a list of what I liked and what I didn't.

What I liked: The idea of mixing Kahlua and root beer, Marshall as Cher and his take on Ewoks, Barney's costume introduction, Barney's idea of having two costumes, the devil and the angel on Ted's shoulders, and Robin and Ted's conversation on the rooftop at the end.

What I didn't like: Lilly's Halloween costume, Robin's boyfriend trying to feed her, most of the rooftop party, and Robin getting territorial over ice cream.
