Storyline

Mickey, who grew up in that house, believes he is helping Lily and Marshall by pointing out what they can and cannot do with every aspect of the house. Lily/Marshall and Mickey come to a stalemate when they negotiate Mickey's living arrangement versus his help in fixing the broken fuse which has resulted in the house being in total darkness. At MacLaren's, Ted, Barney and Robin are lamenting the empty half a booth where Lily and Marshall generally sat, and which will now be emptier than usual.

Excellent Episode
8 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The intro credits for this episode start things off in great fashion as it is a special one-off revolving around Barney, with the show re-titled "How I Met Your Barney", and with revised theme music with lyrics sung by Neil Patrick Harris (Barney) and as usual the man knocks it out of the park.

Plot In A Paragraph: Lily and Marshall have now officially moved to Long Island, which brings about many issues. For Lily and Marshall, they receive an unexpected and somewhat unwanted house guest, Lily's Dad Mickey. At MacLaren's, Ted, Barney and Robin are lamenting the empty half a booth where Lily and Marshall generally sat, however, Barney comes to the realisation that Lily was generally the boss of their group, and thus now he plans on taking over. That leads to an evening which has them finding unexpected surrogates for Lily and Marshall.

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.

My god Kal Penn is painful to watch, I'm sure he is a nice guy, and I feel awful as I seem to bash him with every episode he is in, but he is awfully out of place in this show. I think he found his niche as a stoner in the 'Harold & Kumar' movies.

And my final plus point is, any episode that features the delightful Alyson Hannigan as stripper Lily gets a big thumbs up from this reviewer.
