The Show Is Back On Track, 11 February 2015
Author: slightlymad22 from United Kingdom

Any episode of "How I Met Your Mother" with this many "Star Wars" references is bound to get two big thumbs up from this reviewer.

Plot In A Paragraph: The guys are hanging out at Ted's new apartment. Ted suggests that they make the evening their boys only viewing of the Star Wars trilogy, this triennial event which began in 2000 when Ted and Marshall were at University. Meanwhile Barney doesn't feel comfortable enough around Quinn to do certain things in front of her, and a neighbour starts spying on him!

Any episode that features the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris's character Barney Stinson in the main storyline is always excellent. I could go on and on about the brilliance of this episode, and in particular Neil Patrick Harris but I won't bore you with it.

We also see the year Ted's daughter is born, so we know he'll meet the mother and have a baby with her before too long.
