Did You Know?


Robin Scherbatsky: That's Barney. He means well.
Ted Mosby: Actually, we're not sure that's true.
Don Frank: I think he's awesome. I just feel bad for any woman with such low esteem she'd date a guy like that.
Narrator: And that's when I realized that Robin hasn't told Don she and Barney used to date.
Barney Stinson: We're a lot alike, Don. We both enjoy a good Scotch, we both find my stories fascinating, and we both went out with Robin.
Narrator: And now he knew.

Not A Good Episode.
17 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of the silliest episode ever of how I Met your mother. Normally any episode that features the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson front and centre, automatically raises the quality of the episode. Sadly this is not the case here, as his storyline is very silly.

Plot In A Paragraph: When Robin announces she is contemplating moving in with her new boyfriend Don, Who is upset that she dated both Barney and Ted. Barney and Ted both decide they must have her back. Meanwhile Marshall and Lily started sleeping in separate beds.

The Marshall and Lily story seem like a mere filler, and whilst Neil Patrick Harris remains watchable as always, through no fault of his own, this is not one of his better half hours.

Whilst the ending was meant to be sad, I don't care if we don't see Robin again, as I just don't connect with her character at all. Along with Ted she is my least favourite character. Though the fact she left only one thing in the room was touching.
