Both heartbreaking and genius
14 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know Barney kissed robin and all but to have him admit to his feelings for her in both his own amusing ways and the heartwarming way was awesome. I love this episode from begin to end because no matter how much I want robin and Barney to be together we do have to realize it's only 10 episodes into the season. The writers of HIMYM will not just give the viewers what the want to see it doesn't happens in real life and it doesn't happen in HIMYM. That's the Beaty of this show the moment you think you have all the mystery solve one action changes the future and it becomes so puzzling that you have to watch the next episode just to figure out yet another piece of the puzzle. HIMYM will continue for seasons to come as a hope and tge longer it stays on the more and more it becomes addictive. The concepts the plot and script is solid and I wouldn't change one bit of this amazing episode and this captivating show.

Ps is always good to see a different side of a character as solid as Barney, his weakness make us relate to him more. There is a Barney in all of us whether we embrace him or not
