Storyline

Quinn has moved in with Barney, but not all is all right with the living arrangement as Barney doesn't yet feel like he can be himself around Quinn in all its good and bad, which is manifested in part by his evening ritual just outside his apartment building. He decides to take refuge at Ted's new apartment. As Marshall is also there, Ted suggests that they make the evening their boys only triennial viewing of the Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) trilogy, this triennial event which began in 2000 when Ted and Marshall were still at Wesleyan. Although the trilogy is the centerpiece of the get together, it has historically been more about where their life is at that the present time, predicting what their lives will be like in three years time at their next viewing, and reflecting on why their prediction from three years ago went so awry. In most respects, the 2003, 2006 and 2009 events were remarkably similar, but many current issues make the 2012 event a bit different. Written by Huggo

Haters gonna hate
24 April 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I haven't even finished watching this episode. But I saw that someone posted a one star review and I felt the need to rebuff them (I didn't even read their review). Anyways, the point of the matter is that yes, this show is far longer than it ever should have been, but nevertheless, it continues to take us to the places we all have been....

What does that mean you say (it means I've been drinking), but on top of that, it means that it takes us to all those great moments in our lives. The ones where we were friends with nerds in highschool and thought our nerdom would keep us together forever. It takes us to those moments where we thought our girl (or boy) would always be the one. And it takes us to that place where we wish we would always be with our friends.

While I will be the first to admit that my nerd friends from highschool are not as awesome as they used to be, that my exes all seem insane, and that my friends are not those that I thought they would be... How I Met Your Mother always manages to bring me back to those days where I believed in all the dreams and lies... and, more importantly, it does so in a way that is sincere and honest. While other shows may be funnier or better written, HIMYM continues to touch my heart long after its best before date.

This is why I rate this episode a 7 before I have even finished watching it - I just know that I'm going to come out feeling better than I did going in. So enjoy. And don't worry about the trolls. They rate everything a 3 because they believe in nothing.
