Storyline

Ted has always thought that Maggie Wilks, a woman he and Marshall and Lily knew in college, is the perfect woman. He's wanted to date her ever since she moved to New York, but she's always been in a relationship. Even between relationships, it's been a matter of hours before she was with another man in a long term relationship. So when Ted finds out, with the help of Maggie's cooperative neighbor, that Maggie is once again single, Ted rushes over to her apartment before another man swoops in. He gets there in time. As Ted forgot that he has a class to teach for the time that he and Maggie are supposed to go on their first date, he asks Marshall and Lily to keep her away from any men until he returns. That plan goes slightly awry when Marshall, reading through an old letter he found that he wrote to his 30 year old self when he was 15, hits a sudden and early mid-life crisis, to which he and by association Lily have to attend. They leave Maggie in Robin's care. When Robin has to attend... Written by Huggo

Another Drop In Quality
13 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode wasn't a lot of fun, despite Barney's "Challange" raising a chuckle or too!!

Plot In A Paragraph: Ted has always thought that Maggie Wilks, a girl he, Marshall and Lily knew in college, is the perfect woman. He's wanted to date her ever since she moved to New York, but she's always been in a relationship. Even between relationships, it's been a matter of hours before she was with another man in a long term relationship. So when Ted finds out, with the help of Maggie's neighbour, that Maggie is once again single, Ted rushes over to her apartment before another man swoops in. Meanwhile, when Marshall, finds an old letter he found that he wrote to his 30 year old self when he was 15, hits a sudden and early mid-life crisis.

From a brilliant episode, we have had a drop in quality with each episode since.
