  • Common, think of something new..

    This was actually a fairly okay episode of HIMYM. And I can definitely rate this much better than the stuff we saw last season. However, the show is still lagging behind in making some actual progress. This is the second time the writers have used the Robin's deportation problem as a central plot, and as expected, Barney comes to her rescue, again. And there were the usual overdone 'make-fun-Canada' jokes, just like 'make-fun-of-New Jersey' jokes. The other storyline was pure rubbish. Ted and Marshall try to relive one of their college memories driving to a pizza place in Chicago. If jokes of Lily having to pee every minute, or listening to some ridiculous audio book are something the writers categorize as 'funny', somebody got to tell them they're wrong.
