In 2009, Ted goes on a blind date with a woman named Jen. It isn't until they're at the restaurant about ready to order that they both come to the realization that they are reliving the same blind date they had with each other in 2002. This date is going about as well as that first one did, but as they come to the conclusion that their dating lives have pretty much stalled in that seven years, they decide to relive the remainder of that date from seven years ago to learn why they make such bad first impressions. But as they learn what they did wrong, will those turn into rights for the two of them, or will wrongs always be wrongs? Meanwhile, Barney comes up with a plan to hijack Marshall without either Robin or Lily knowing what's going on. The reason is that Barney has come to the conclusion that Marshall's life is controlled by Lily and in Barney's mind he needs to get out and have some guy's fun. So Barney takes him to a strip club. There, Marshall opens up about how he fantasizes ... Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


Robin is wearing the wishbone necklace Lily wore in season one. Zoey is seen with the same one in "oh honey". This could be explained by Robin borrowing the necklace from Lily in "double date" and by lily and Marshall selling their stuff online and zoey buying the necklace before "oh honey" See more »

Good but sadly a copy
22 September 2017 | by NalitzisSee all my reviews

Well, I must say that I am quite a fan of the series. Actually, only until season 6, because after that I was only going along with the plot, not enjoying it even half of what i did in previous seasons. Unfortunately in some episodes, this series is way too "inspired" by older shows. Not that I'm not a fan of those, for example I still believe that Seinfeld is the best thing that's ever shown on television and it's almost unavoidable to go and get a few ideas there. But in this case, the story around Marshall and Lily is an absolute copy of season 6's episode 16 of King of Queens (Damned Yanky). Actually, the KOQ's episode is way way funnier. For those who haven't seen it, go ahead and do it. King of Queens is in my opinion one of the most underrated sitcoms I've ever watched.
