Storyline

Robin thinks she's made it into the big time when one of Ted's students recognizes her from her stint on the morning show. Robin revels in the recognition so much so that she even drops by his class just so that more of his students will recognize her, which they do. Ted is later happy to learn that his students don't watch the show for Robin's interviewing prowess, but that her interviews are used for what they call the "but-um" drinking game. Ted can't help but rub Robin's nose with this information. But Robin thinks she has the last laugh on the matter. Meanwhile, Marshall is continually telling the exploits of his crazy new colleague, Jenkins. What Marshall fails to tell his friends is that Jenkins is a beautiful young woman, which transforms those crazy exploits into sexually provocative acts. Marshall, who was fearing Lily's reaction, is dismayed to learn that Lily isn't jealous when she actually meets Jenkins. After Jenkins kisses Marshall, he wants to use that act to make Lily...

A Fun Episode Directed By Neil Patrick Harris
14 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a rare episode, as it is not directed by usual series director Pamela Fryman, but instead it's directed by Neil Patrick Harris. Who does an excellent job.

Plot In A Paragaph: Marshall is continually telling the exploits of his crazy new colleague, Jenkins. What Marshall fails to tell his friends is that Jenkins is a beautiful young woman (Amanda Peet) which transforms those crazy exploits into sexually provocative acts. Marshall, who was worried about Lily's reaction, is devastated to learn that Lily isn't jealous when she actually meets Jenkins, as she does not believe that Marshall could attract someone as hot as Jenkins. Meanwhile, Robin is convinced she's made it, when one of Ted's students recognises her from her morning show. She enjoys the recognition so much that she drops by Ted's class just so that more of his students will recognise her, which they do. Ted learns that his students use her interviews for a drinking game.

A really fun episode, Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan are both excellent, as was Amanda Peet as Jenkins. The one thing I didn't like is how success always goes to Robins head.
