  • Do I see a shark?

    3.0
    I gave up in the strip club. This season has been one of the slowest shark pool jumps I've witnessed in television. The writers are obviously terrified to try progressing the original premise of the show. It's wandering every which way but forward. My sympathies to an exceptional cast... who were exceptional when they still had worthy scripts to work with.
  • Russian HIMYM! LOL! Epic!

    The storylien in this episode was - admitteldly - dull. However, it was hilarious!!!



    I partiocularly loved the HIMYM intros with 'How I Met Your Barney' and the Russian HIMYM with Better Lily and New Marshall! That just had me laughing!



    So I have to say, if you're after the storyline of how Ted meets the mother, this isn't the episode for you, and this would normally result in me giving a low score. However, there were some hilarious moments, which is why I gave it a ten!



    I do expect a little more next week, though!moreless
  • Lack of progression

    4.5
    Sadly this episode is just another in a long line this season of episodes that do everything but tell the story of how Ted met his wife. The story isn't even so much about Ted anymore but focuses too much on Marshall and Lily, which in itself is ok, but this is meant to be the story of "how I met your mother".
  • HILARIOUS!!!!

  • It's not so bad

    Everyone is complaining that they would like the writers to start showing us the mother. The show is called "how I met your mother" and I'm assuming that is when the show will end so clearly, if they start telling us about the mother, the show is done. HIMYM signed on for 2 more seasons so they need to stretch out the story line.



    Yes the show is about how he met their mother but it's also just a bunch of adventures between friends. If you're waiting for the episode when Ted will meet the mother, then just wait 2 years and watch the final episode. For those who enjoy the wacky adventures of the gang, this episode is not horrible. Yes the show has seen better days but stop hating on the writers just because they haven't introduced the "mother".moreless
