Storyline

When Barney tells Ted that the new GNB headquarters building project is back on and that the job is his once again, Ted declines, preferring his quieter life now as college professor as opposed to his previously horrible experience working at GNB. Ted and Marshall realize that Barney's resulting unusual behavior is him making the moves on Ted like he makes the moves on the women he's trying to pick-up. Meanwhile, Robin catches a bit of Don's new television show. She tells the gang that she was all right seeing Don again despite their bad break-up, but Lily is certain that there is more to the story, what she calls "the poop". Lily discovering what Robin actually did leads to a showdown of contact entries in Robin, Lily and Marshall's respective cell phones. Written by Huggo

Three Solid Episodes In A Row
26 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Neil Patrick Harris knocks it out if the park once again as Barney Stinson as How I Met Your Mother.

Plot in A Paragraph: When Barney tells Ted that the new GNB headquarters building project is back on and that the job is his once again, Ted declines, preferring his life as a college professor as opposed to his horrible experience working at GNB. Barney is devastated, and reacts in typical Barney fashion. Ted and Marshall realise that Barney's resulting unusual behaviour is him making the moves on Ted like he makes the moves on the women he's trying to pick-up. Meanwhile, Robin catches a bit of Don's new television show, and starts leaving abusive messages on his voicemail.

Any episode that features the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris's character Barney Stinson in the main storyline is always excellent. 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.
