I thought this was quite a boring episode, and I thought the storyline was very weak in some places. The episode was a little funny, with the Robin and BVarney storyline, but overall, it was not that great with Ted and Marshall (and Lily).
I thought the episode bordered on boring with that story, but if it weren't for barney and Robin, I would've given it a much worse score.
I wouldn't recommend this one too highly, but it did have its strengths. There have been a couple of somewhat uninteresting episodes for me recently, and I hope that changes soon, before it gets any worse.
