One of the best episode of HIMYM
23 March 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Actually this seasons a few episodes of how i met your mother doesn't give me what i expect actually( i don't know,maybe because of Hımym greatness my expectations gone up) but this episode and episode 16 not one of that episodes.This episode started a big question 'what will Robin says to Ted.In the beginning looks like a new start for Robin and Ted but in the end Ted find out what he wants?he doesn't want to a wife who doesn't love with him.He wants to a real love between him and her.Other hand this episode was really extraordinary,as fun and creactivity.There's no a little overrated act in this episode.Robin and Ted's deal-if we don't find anybody until 40 we'll marry each to other-a set for show(because show couldn't go over 5-6 years more)because we all know from first episode Robin wasn't the mother but the other hand there was a deal.Creators-i don't know how many seasons they wanna go? but- break that set very cleverly.

I mean you clear it out a lot of things 1-Ted won't marry Robin 2-Barney doesn't wanna be with Robin 3-Ted breaks a wall for reach out love of his life and that episode doesn't give a little bit tolorate no fun nor creactivity.I mean what can expect more a 20 minutes sit-com. Thanks guys.
