After watching Ted and Victoria together, Marshall, who is trying to channel his inner goddess, and Lily believe Ted is missing all the signs that Victoria is throwing at him to move their relationship to the next level and get married. If Marshall and Lily are correct, Ted has to figure out why he and Victoria are at different places in their relationship and what that means for their long term future. Meanwhile, Barney has acquired a new real dog of a wing-man, just like himself. Robin believes that Barney's relationship with his new wing-man is Barney's cry for help in dealing with his break-up with Quinn. In Robin's effort to help Barney through his crisis, Nick comes to an understanding of where he fits in Robin's life in comparison to her closest group of friends. Written by Huggo

This show used to be good. I used to love Marshal but what have they done to him? Barney's lines are awful. Robin's boring. I've never really liked Ted too much but I can't bear him now. It's such a shame, I've watched old episodes several times and have favourite lines but can't say I'll feel that way about season eight. I've been waiting for it to get better but it's just not happening. I feel like the canned laughter is more prominent too, making it even more irritating. Please excuse my stilted writing but IMDb are insisting I write more than I wanted too when really it could be said with.................. Dreadful!!!!!
