An OK Episode
11 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: Ted is once again thinking he has found "the one". When she meets the gang for a meal, it's obvious they all so not like her. To protect him, the guys refuse to tell him what it is, when he finally finds out what it is. Ted responds by turning the tables on his friends, and points out their flaws, and they react by pointing out Ted's worst flaw.

Every show seems to have one of these flaws episodes. "Friends" did it too, where everyone's flaws and faults (that have never been there before, and never will be seen again) are pointed out and highlighted.

All in all it's an OK episode, nothing more nothing less. It has some OK moments, but overall it's pretty forgettable.
