"Columns" is a pretty good How I Met Your Mother episode. The Lily, Marshall, and Barney plot was awesome. In this episode, the gang finds a nude painting of Marshall. I love how Marshall hates the nude painting and tries to find where Ted, Barney, and Robin put the painting. I love how Barney wants to Lily to paint him nude. I love how Lily and Marshall say Lily won't paint him nude so Barney will raise the price he'll pay them. I love how Lily got the money from Barney and then gave him the painting and he had no genitals in the painting. The Ted plot was alright. I don't like Hammond. He was just really annoying. I thought the heart attack was interesting and I'm glad everyone liked Ted by the end of the episode. I give this episode a 8/10.
