How do they do it? This was another great episode. Only great shows like friends and Lost (which is in a class by itself) can do this. Like I have always said before I love getting back stories on characters. This time it's Barney. (more on that later) I like that Marshall came up with this complicated game but at the same time, you didn't like him for that., you actually liked him him for it. I like that while Marshall and Lilly said they weren't going to integrate, they did so subtly.. I also liked that game continued in the bar.
Barney's back story was great. He has always come off as cool a ladies man and very confident. It's funny that he was a hippie. What I like about this episode is that just when you think it's one thing, it ends being another thing. I also like all the other characters back stores too. I also like that Victoria was able to put up with Ted and what he did although he is no longer vomit free since 93.
