Storyline

Barney feels like the gang is slowly falling apart. Despite not knowing exactly what it is but knowing that they would all have a good time at it, he got five ringside tickets to go see "Robots vs. Wrestlers" for himself, Ted, Marshall, Lily and Robin, knowing full well that Robin would now decline in her want to establish a relationship with Don away from specifically her two ex-boyfriends. Marissa Heller may be the cause of Ted also drifting away from the group, he who feels unappreciated whenever he tries to bring a little culture into the proceedings. So when the four crash an upscale party, Ted feels like he's met a crowd who he not only likes (including film director Peter Bogdanovich, political columnist Arianna Huffington and New York Times crossword puzzle editor Will Shortz), but who allow him to be cultured. But can Ted be cultured all the time? A recent doppelgänger sighting may provide him the answer. Meanwhile, Marshall and Lily wait for a specific sign to let them know ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

The effetely off-color "Constance Frye" song that Will Shortz, Ted (Josh Radnor), Jefferson Van Smoot (Michael York) and Peter Bogdanovich sing at the party is from Trading Places (1983), in which it is sung by Louis Winthorpe III (Dan Aykroyd) and his rich, insufferable friends. See more »

Another So So Episode
17 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode features Ted Mosby at his pretentious worst it is a side of him I really enjoy seeing, and almost this full episode is devoted to it.

Plot In A Paragraph: Barney worried that the gang is drifting apart, when he gets five tickets to "Robots Versus Wrestlers" (something he considers will be a new tradition for the gang to attend every year) and Robin (who is still upset from the events of the previous episode) refuses to go, and Ted decides to to stay at a snobbish party.

Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel try hard, but sadly it is not enough to raise the quality of this substandard episode that follows hot on the heels from the last substandard episode.

With only two episodes left of season five, "How I Met Your Mother" needs to seriously get back to the excellent episodes like "girls versus suits" and "the playbook" from earlier in the season.
