Storyline

Immediately after his drunken spree at Punchy's wedding, Marshall learns that he is one step away from landing his dream job working in environmental lawyer Garrison Cootes' law firm. That last step is for them to do a background check to make sure that there are no unseemly skeletons in his closet. Feeling that that drunken spree may have cost him the job and thus vowing never to get drunk again, Marshall does his own Internet search to find any of those skeletons. He finds one video, posted by a college colleague named Pete Durkenson, of Marshall doing a supposed fraternity prank called Beercules. Believing that video could cost him his dream job, Marshall tries to track down Pete to get him to remove the video. Finding a seemingly still immature Pete may get Marshall into even more trouble. Meanwhile, Nora finally agrees to meet with Barney, who tries to do whatever he can to make her believe he's a changed man, even if it takes a marathon in an all-night diner. And Ted decides to ...

A Solid Second Episode Of The Season.
3 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Neil Patrick Harris knocks it out if the park once again as Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother, as the second episode of season seven, continues its great start.

Plot In A Paragraph: After the environmental job he is applying for, plans to do a background check on him. Marshall searched all over the Internet to see what could be found, and he comes an embarrassing video from college. In an attempt to impress her, Barney begins to admit all of his lies to Nora, and he then tries to prove how much he truly cares for her. Ted begins dating two girls at once in order to help find "the one."

Any episode that features the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris's character Barney Stinson in the main storyline is always excellent. And this showcases both the sleazy and sensitive side to Barney. And I was thrilled Nazanin Boniadi is back as Nora (as I really like her) 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.

And one more thing that delighted me, was the return of a girl from Ted's past (In fact my favourite girl from Ted's previous dating history)
