HIMYM seems to be starting Season 4 on a high note. Amazingly, this episode mixed two full, complex storylines into a twenty minute episode, exactly why I love this show. Both Ted & Barney's stories had jokes which ran smoothly with the plot and were laugh out loud funny without being gimmicky or just silly. It was nice to see Stella's bittersweet response to Ted's favorite movie. It gave her character & Ted & Stella's relationship more depth & brought back the air of reality that makes HIMYM so great. Lily & Barney's story was also fresh and it made Barney a much more relavent character. Overall, an episode that was hilarious but also had heart. I loved it!
