Another mystery woman?
Okay so we still haven't found out who the mother is and now we have to guess who Barney slept with who's after him? The only problem I had with this episode was the anti-climactic ending. It would have been a 10 on the rating scale if we found out who the mystery woman was. Not "Future Ted" saying "We'll talk about that later." I loved the format of this episode! Resembling "March Madness" Barney puts the top 64 girls he slept with in a bracket to narrow it down to see who is trying to ruin his life, when a girl comes up to Lilly thinking she was with Barney. Saying to stay away from Barney. So he goes through the whole episode scavenging for 4 woman, who narrowed it down from his top 64. We get to see some old friends from the past. Such as the girl from 204, when Barney used Ted's name, so now there is a website: tedmosbyisajerk.com, saying that Ted Mosby is a jerk. Then after going through all the girls, they decide to make the girl come to them as Robin disguises as a girl being hit on by Barney. The girl doesn't end up going up to her, another girl does, since Barney doesn't recognize her, he gives her a huge apology, but it wasn't even her. So mystery woman remains a mystery by the end, which like I said, was the only downside of the episode. Other than that, the format, editing and writing was all great. A great episode that introduced a long running arc for Barney: For once.moreless
As you already know, Barney has slept with his fair share of women and done it with many kinds of ways, costumes, and characters. In this episode someone is spoiling it for him and now it's not Lilly or any of his friends. It was someone that Barney slept with. It was really funny how Barney got rejected and the ways Barney attempted to do it. The best one was the women at the art gallery. Watch where his hands are before he gets slapped. It was also funny how the gang was trying to guess the ways Barney was trying to seduce women. It was very entertaining how the gang was trying to help Barney which women was screwing things up. One of my favorite parts is when Barney was thinking of what women it could be. Watch closely at one of the women, It was a reference to a previous episode. When they get to the final four, that is the best part. Another great part was the reference to the women Barney slept with in the past episodes like him using Ted Mosby's name. I enjoyed how each women reacted differently to Barney apologizing or sometimes not. I think Lilly was the perfect choice to accompany Barney. I also really liked the friendship of Barney and Lilly. I could be wrong at this but whatever Barney said to Robin may have an effect on something that would happen later on. Robin trying to play it cool was pretty funny too. The only bad part but not really there was not a second story. But in this case it wasn't really needed. Great song at the ending with the pictures. This was a great episode that got you wondering who was the women. And yes you find out who it is.moreless
Barney has a stalker, a former scorned lover who is ensuring he never "scores" again. When the woman approaches Lily, warning her about Barney, the gang then composes a board of the women that Barney lied to and hurt the most, finally reaching a top 4, Barney and Lily set out to see if any of the 4 are his stalker. Failing, the gang sets up a scheme to catch his stalker in the act.
This episode was hilarious. Not only was the storyline incredibly interesting and funny, but it managed to reference "Ted Mosby: Architect" (a personal favourite episode from season 2!) The best bit was the plan to catch the stalker in the act at the end. Except for Ted really, the whole gang wasn't that subtle. For example Lily's attempt to hang by the jukebox and not draw attention to herself. Classic! Also Robin's laughing every time she lied and Marshall's freaking out about trying to act normal. A highly enjoyable episode! It also mention Barney's blog again, love it!moreless
Barney's attempts to pick up girls are ruined by a girl stalking him,
to narrow down who the stalker is the gang make a bracket of the girls who hate barney...
good episode, very funny... only one small plot hole...
how did "anna" the girl who thought Barney was Ted Mosbie architect end up in the top 4 of the bracket? not only could she not be his stalker because when the stalker sits with lily at the start, her exact words are "Hey, a word of advice, that guy you're talking to... Barney Stinson, i know he seems charming. But he's just saying whatever it takes to get in your pants. sleeping with barney was the biggest mistake of my life." So the stalker knows Barney is Barney, not Ted. so 'Anna' should not even be on the bracket, but how is she make it to the top 4?? barney has done waaaaaaaaaay worst stuff than play Architect for a night, did the writers add 'anna' into the story for an additional joke or did someone somewhere screw up and no one notices?moreless
Barney has a stalker which warns women about him.
"The Bracket" is an awesome How I Met Your Mother episode. In this episode, a women is stalking Barney and telling woman about him, so they'll slap him across the face. I love how the gang creates this system of all the women Barney slept with and who could possibly have a grudge against him. I love how Lily is annoyed that Barney won't apologize to any of the women he's hurt in the past. I love how Barney makes this one heartfelt apology that makes Lily proud. I give this episode a 10/10.moreless
This has been one of the first times I have ever watched, How I Met your Mother. And it will probably be one of the last. The episode wasn't even that funny. Barney takes pictures of all the people he's slept with? What? How is that even funny. Then it gets awful when he finds out a girl he's slept with is trying to ruin his chance at, "scoring agian". So he makes a bracket to see who it is. It's then down to 4 women, who care anyway? One of his friends had seen the one and made him apologize to all 4 of them and then he would find out who it was. They never found out, so what was the point of the episode?moreless
Season 3, Episode 14.
Barney's efforts to hook up with women are being thwarted by a mysterious woman from his past. Barney and the gang must sift though his many past flings in an attempt to find out who she is. I really enjoyed this episode. Barney sold a girl before! LMAO! They stole Lily's blackboard! LMAO! I really enjoyed the journey Barney and Lily embarked on. They even broke a couple up! LMFAO! This episode was way too much! Very entertaining! I loved Lily's little Elaine dance from Seinfeld at the jukebox. Very entertaining, definitely. The writing on this show is pretty good. Even if it isn't funny, it's always entertaining. Great episode.moreless
lagen.....dary coming back
A Mysterious Woman is ruining Barney’s mojo by warning women to stay away from him. Only Lily has seen her, but before she’ll help him identify the woman, Lily forces Barney to go back and confront the girls who are most deserving of an apology. Using the NCAA tournament bracketology the gang takes the top sixty-four women Barney has been with and narrows the list down to The Final Four; the four women Barney must apologize to and face the repercussions.

Barney gets stalked by a woman who warns other women not to date him. Mystery woman never revealed!
Pretty good episode, although kinda left you hanging at the end with no real conclusion to the story. It will be interesting to see how they turn what seems to be a filler episode into an actual plot point for the show. As it seems the mystery woman might actually be critical to the plot... Episode is actually called "The Bracket" can't say it was my favorite episode but it was interesting and funny to delve into Barney's seedy world. The last few episodes have really been trying to get back to the root plot of how Ted met his wife, and they seem to be getting closer and closer to that introduction, (and maybe closer and closer to a finale). Great Doogie Howser joke at the end by the way!moreless
Another great performance by Barney. Team tries to find out the mysterious woman who warns Barney's the newest preys.
This episode's level is became better with Barney's outstanding performance. Unfortunately I couldn't say the same thing for the others. I believe that the writer's strike affected the actors' performance bad. For instance: I sense the acting of Robin's the way as "compelled to play" or "nothing to do else, so I am here".
They were much better before the strike and I miss their enjoyable laughs and jokes. Even it is so, I am so glad that they are back and we are able to watch How I met your mother again. I am waiting impatiently for the next episode.moreless
