Storyline

A beautiful woman named Karina starts working as a bartender at MacLaren's. Robin believes Karina's hotness is all circumstantial. Many men are mesmerized by Karina, but none more so than Barney, who has never slept with a bartender. Barney has a plan to woo Karina, but Karina, who has so far treated all the patrons at the bar like her best friend, is immediately turned off by Barney. Marshall learns it's because she previously had a bad experience with a man who worked on Wall Street, so now she immediately is turned off by anyone wearing a suit. Can Barney give up his suit wearing ways to impress Karina, or put aside his suits long enough to sleep with her? Meanwhile, Ted has started dating Cindy, a student at the university. Cindy breaks it off with Ted when she learns that the university has a strict no professor-student dating policy, which means that if they are caught, Cindy could lose her scholarship and Ted could lose his job.

The Best Episode Of How I Met Your Mother Ever
14 January 2015 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

This is the show's 100th episode. And by far my favourite episode. It is hilarious, and the musical number at the end just makes it even better.

Plot In A Paragraph: When he becomes obsessed with a new female bartender (Stacey Keibler) at Maclarens, who hates men who wear suits, Barney finds himself in the strange position of having to choose between girls or suits. Meanwhile Ted gets one step closer to the mother (which is actually what the show is supposed to be about, because let's be honest, sometimes we forget) when he starts dating a student (Rachel Bilson), Back at Maclarens, Lily is amazed that Marshall does not find the new bartender hot, whilst Robin is upset at no longer being viewed as the hottest girl in the bar.

Any episode that features the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris's character Barney Stinson in the main storyline is always excellent, and this one is no exception, in fact I consider this my favourite episode of HIMYM. The musical number in Barney's mind is TV gold, and Alyson Hannigan looks great in a suit.

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.
