Storyline

Ted enjoys the process of designing GNB's new headquarters, except for the negative comments Bilson is always hurling toward him. So Ted is relieved when a new executive committee without Bilson is overseeing the project for GNB. That relief turns to incredulity when Ted learns that in reality, the project in its entirety had been scrapped a month earlier. Ted eventually finds out that Marshall and Barney set up the charade of the new committee (with its fake GNB employees) to keep Ted happy for the couple of months that he was getting paid for work on the project anyway as per the contract. As this project was the only one he was working on for his architectural firm, Ted is afraid that he will be fired if they find out. Barney and Marshall think they've come up with a short term solution to Ted's problem, unless Bilson has his say. Meanwhile, Robin let's it slip that she once had the opportunity to have sex with a Canadian born celebrity with an unusual collection of memorabilia. ... Written by Huggo

Another So So Episode
2 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: Ted is still designing GNB's new headquarters, except Bilson is always slating his ideas. So Ted is relieved when a new executive committee without Bilson is overseeing the project for GNB. That relief is short lived when Ted learns that the project had been scrapped a month earlier. Ted eventually finds out that Marshall and Barney set up the new committee to keep Ted happy for the couple of months since he was still getting paid anyway. As this project was the only one he was working on for his architectural firm, Ted is afraid that he will be sacked. Meanwhile, Robin let's slip that she once had sex with a Canadian born celebrity with an unusual collection of memorabilia.

The Robin story seemed like a bit of filler, and whilst the Ted story had its moments, especially the CCTV footage of Barney sacking people, the full episode seemed a bit flat.
