  • A rare misfire...

    Not sure what happened here. The writing was way off, for sure -- and I guess that threw everything else off-kilter, as well. The jokes fell flat, the characters acted out-of-character. Just not, in my opinion, a good episode. What I can usually count on with HIMYM is solid character-based humor, with a smattering of jokes to fill. This episode turned that ratio on its ear, and ended up with mostly "jokes" and very little character humor (and what there was of that, as I mentioned earlier, did not work for me, for the most part). The actors were all game enough, but this proves the axiom that if the writing isn't there, nothing else will gel. Fortunately, one poorly-written episode is not enough to blacken my overall appreciation of this series. Nevertheless, even if you're a big fan of the show, it'd probably be best if you missed this episode. Hopefully they'll return to form next week.
