8 Or Higher
12 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Eight or higher is a rule Marshall and Lily impose on the gang. It is just as well the audience didn't impose that rule on the makers of "How I Met Your Mother" As this season has had more than a few "less than an 8" episodes

Plot In A Paragraph: Barney and Quinn struggle to get through airport security on their romantic getaway. Robin encourages Ted to call "The one that got away" Victoria whilst trying to get a family photo of Marshal Lily and Marvin Jr

Whilst the Barney storyline was a lot of fun, and I do like Becki Newton as Quinn, I feel all the work of making us like Quinn and root for her has been ruined by the revelation that he is getting married (As shown in the finale of season 6) to Robin. Its a massive step back for the show. Ted loves Robin, Robin loves Ted, they break up, Barney loves Robin, Robin loves Barney, they break up Robin loves Barney,nothing happens, Barney loves Robin, she rejects him. now BAM, back to that story!! Although I do like Robin and Barney better than Robin and Ted.

A massive plus is the return of Ashley Williams as Victoria, as she is my favourite of all Ted's women (Robin included) but we know she is not the mother as Ted said he met the mother at Barney's wedding. 'Trilogy Time' revealed Ted has a daughter in 3 years time, So going back to Victoria (as much as I like her) is another step backwards for the show.
