Another Halloween Episode
26 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For some inexplicable reason, the TV channel I'm watching the reruns on, skipped the last two episodes, and as a result I have missed the introduction to Zoe and her campaign to ruin Ted's dream, and stop him from building Goliath National Banks new head quarters.

Plot In A Paragraph: It's Halloween 2010, Ted's students love him, and he revels in the adoration. But things may change when he gets a new student. Zoe, the campaigner trying to stop GNB building their new bank. When Zoey starts to turn his students against him, Ted turns to the expert when it comes to dealing with troublesome students: Lily. Meanwhile, Marshall refuses to fire his underling, Randy. And Robin refuses to tell the gang who she had a drunken one night stand with.

Although I liked seeing Barney dressed as his hero, Johnny Lawrence from "The Karate Kid". And there was something strangely attractive about Lilly being dressed as a male matador, this was was a bit of a miss.
