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

How I met your mother is Back !!
11 April 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

With the disappointing start to Season 7 and the Ratings of the show going down, This episode will help things fall into place. So finally an episode this season which was extremely entertaining and filled with fun! This episode gives hope for much more to come! A part of the story still continues with the past and future being shown in bits. Barney Stinson fans - This episode will go right there on the top of the charts with some good comedy sequences involving Barney are shown! So finally we have an overall great episode which announces the comeback of How I met your mother and lets hope we get episodes like more of these! Cheers.
