Storyline

By the third day, it looks as if Barney's perfect week - sleeping with seven different women on each of the seven days with no rejection - may become a reality. It not only becomes Barney's obsession, but that of Marshall, Lily, Robin and Ted, as those four need something to take their minds off what a bad week they're having. Marshall and Lily have lost yet another couple friends when information about Marshall and Lily's life is made public. Robin has yet to hear from her latest date, which bothers her despite thinking that he was boring. And Ted is having problems with a student in his class who he thought was putting him on. But the four find out that behind Barney's perfect week quest, he too is facing a major problem in his life. Only Lily believes Barney needs to get out from the perfect week quest and deal with his problem head on. Written by Huggo

Neil Patrick Harris Is Awesome
14 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

How I Met Your Mother is well and truly over its slump from earlier this season, and is now producing excellent episode after excellent episode.

Plot In A Paragraph: With Barney aiming to achieve the ultimate dream by completing "The Perfect Week" which involves sleeping with 7 girls in 7 days, all the gang are rooting for him, to forget their own miserable week. Ted accidentally insulted a student named Cook Poo, when he believed someone had wrote a fake name on his sign up sheet. Robin was upset when a guy she had a bad first date with doesn't call her back, and Marahall and Lily are devastated when they lose another couple as friends when it is revealed that they share a toothbrush.

Any episode that features the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris's character Barney Stinson in the main storyline is always excellent, and this one is no exception, in fact I consider this one of my favourite episodes of HIMYM.

I could go on and on about the brilliance of this episode, and in particular Neil Patrick Harris but I won't bore you with it.
