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 ...

Disappointing episode
7 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

After waiting for so long for this episode it is not funny at all. I am really disappointed with this. Hope it gets better for the next ones because seriously not even Barney was funny...it's like the previous reviewer said - it's just a bunch of things added together in a weird but not funny way. Lots of things that happen on the episode end up not having a specific context or reason for happening...it's just like throw potentially funny things together and see what happens. There's something missing from this one, hoping that the next one will be better...can't wait to see it. All the episodes were fine so far so I'm guessing that something went wrong with this specific one. Thanks for reading!
