Storyline

Since Marshall had been busy with work, a stressed Lily singlehandedly planned their housewarming party, and was worried that it was going to be a disaster. Her premonition came true. Over a five minute period during the party, a series of events that took place simultaneously in the living room, dining room and kitchen resulted in what to the untrained eye looked like a confusing mess if knowledge of only what was happening in one of those three rooms was known, but made total sense when viewed from all three rooms combined. Some of the issues and topics of conversation that led to the disaster included Robin's confrontational nature versus Ted's non-confrontational nature, Marshall pondering whether he should refuse boss Garrison Cootes' demand that they return to work in the middle of the party, Mickey's new beekeeping hobby, what happened to a plate of vegan spring rolls, why Lily didn't want anyone to eat the block of Gouda that Marshall served, and Barney's even more than usual ...

Another boring episode. Very disappointing.
8 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

I would have rated this episode 2 out of 10. But, considering that this sit-com has been my favorite of all time, I feel truly sad saying that this episode is the most abysmal one in the entire series so far.

'The Burning Beekeeper' was so boring and the 'humor' so hackneyed that I sat through the episode solely because I am loyal to this series. The Barney- humor has been used to exhaustion, and especially in the seventh season, his character remains only a supporting character. We could do with some more Barney. No, we could do with a lot more Barney!

I have seen the first five seasons almost a dozen times each, and none of their episodes would bore me at all even if I had to watch them again! Even the sixth season ain't too bad. But the seventh season has seen a disappointing decline in quality- I can barely watch each episode once.

If the writers do not have awesome new ideas or something really interesting for the upcoming episodes, they should quickly wrap up the story, and bring the elusive 'mother' to light soon before watchers lose their interest completely.
