  • I'm surrouded by idiots! Idiots!

    I don't know why everybody is b***g about this episode being supposedly bad. It's an awesome idea to write an entire episode as a poem and I wish more shows would try stuff like this. I love this episode.
  • The number of people here with no joy in their life is sad.

    Worst ever episode? No.



    Best ever episode? Maybe.
  • Writers should win!

    I don't understand what other people's problems were with this episode. I, for one, thought it was incredibly creative and fun. The writers should definitely win an Emmy for this one!
  • Oh well, that didn't work...

    I propably should have read the memo so I would have been a little prepared with like tons of patience, but well I wasn't. And so it was like: Oh, another filler (great, it's only the last season and with the exception of tiny parts it'smostly been like old chewed out chewing gum), it's another Marshall on the road episode (I assume this story line was propably invented due to Jason Segel's commitment to film projects, not an epic fallout with his costars, but it has felt like a major interruption of that group dynamic from the beginning. Just look at Lily who has spent most that weekend annoyingly drunk - thanks, Linus) and there's rhyming?!?!!



    Trying something new, taking a risk isn't necessarily a bad idea. I genuinely enjoy experimenting with speech, but in this episode it just didn't deliver. It's not just about rhyme, it's about rhythm, expression.. However, the rhyming was bad and the delivery even worse. I consider Jason Segel the best part of that ensemble, but in this episode it felt like he didn't feel comfortable and just rushed through his dialoque (his costars didn't do the job better at all, but Marshall did shoulder most of that episode on his own)...

    So, please don't do this again... ever again!moreless
  • Legendary bad.

    So bad, so so bad. It's probably one of the worst episodes I have ever seen, of any tv-show. Give me "Do no harm" over this piece of s**t.
