Neil Patrick Harris Is The Star
19 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After a few so so episodes, How I Met Your Mother returns to form thanks to one man. Step forward Neil Patrick Harris.

Plot In A Paragraph: Robin invites everybody to an awards show and Ted is worried about bringing a date or not. Barney offers to hook him up with a prostitute when Robin brings a real date. Ted is horrified Robin's date is her sleazy colleague Sandy Rivers whom Ted and Marshall constantly make jokes about when watching him on TV.

Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan and Cobie Smulders all offer solid support but it's Neil Patrick Harris who really knocks it out of the park in this episode. He has been the shows saviour at times. Whenever their is a great episode, it features Neil Patrick Harris's Barney Stinson heavily.

The guy who plays Sandy Rivers, is Alexis Denisof and he is Alyson Hannigan's real-life husband.
