  • Mildly funny...

    A touch better than the season opener, HIMYM still continues to amaze me with ridiculous storylines.

    I did like a small part of strip club storyline, but the rest involving Ted and his date had the usual drag touch to it. A lot of shows thrive on some insanely stupid fantasies, HIMYM tried its hand at producing something similar to that. And unfortunately, it couldn't pull off an effective one like Scrubs usually does. The whole idea of Marshall's inability to fantasize about another woman, without having to kill of Lily is an insult to even a person with the maturity of a 12 year old. Things like Lesbian Robin, Mustache Marshall, and Stripper Lily are good, and probably they are themes like these that made HIMYM funny in the first place. It would be good if the show explores themes like these.
