What A Let Down
18 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What a let down, following on from a brilliant season opener, this is a massive disappointment!! Some times a silly plot like this can work, but for this reviewer, this episode misses the mark by a mile.

Plot In A Paragraph: Marshall tells the story of when he first moved to New York, he tasted the best burger ever. He then attempts to track down where he had it, along with the rest of the gang and Regis Philbin.

Even with the celebrity cameo and a great performance from Jason Segel and an enthusiastic turn by Neil Patrick Harris as Barney who is excited his company has had a major takeover of Goliath National Bank (GNB) and he because he played a big part in it, is being heavily rewarded , and keeps singing the praises of GNB
