  • Barney tries to get to know his father more.


    "Hopeless" is a disappointing How I Met Your Mother episode. I didn't like Barney's attitude towards his father. I didn't like how Barney didn't like his dad because he wasn't wild. I think Barney trying to get to know his dad should have been dealt more maturely, yet still funny. It just wasn't funny how Jerry pretended to be crazy so Barney would like him. Now, I did love how Jerry revealed he pretended to be drunk. I loved the theme song in this episode. I love the gang is in a band and they did a cover of the theme song. I didn't like Ted ruining Robin's secret crush. I give this episode a 6/10
