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 ...

Possibly The Worst Episode Of The Show
10 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Is "How I Met Your Mother" running out of steam and ideas?? It's a possibility as this may possibly be the worst episode I've ever seen of the show.

Plot On A Paragraph: Lily and Marshall throw a housewarming party, where Ted nearly comes to blows with Marshall's boss, and Barney hits on a divorcée neighbour.

Chris Elliot is a distraction as Micky Lily's Dad, he is simply too recognisable to me, and every time I see him, he takes me out of the show.

Normally any episode that features the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson heavily (and he does have a fair amount of screen time here) automatically raises the quality of the episode. Sadly this is not the case here, as while he always raises a smile, his storyline is silly and a bit disappointing like the full episode.
