Haters gonna hate, 24 April 2012
Author: James from Canada

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.
