    Assistant?again??. Rings a bell doesn't it?

    We've had a string of episodes in another CBS show - rules of engagement employ this assistant storyline and now its HIMYM. The second unoriginal part was the 'weird back-rub guy', a character lifted straight off a Scrubs episode. Not that I really care about, but I wonder why the crew tries to hide Lily's baby bump with handbags, sweaters, beer pitchers, and doesn't really bother to do the same thing with Robin.

    As said and done, this installment was a huge improvement over the previous episodes. There were some really funny sequences like the "food guy", "toy guy","fantasy guy". These crazy concepts are some typical characteristics of the show that made it funny in the first place. Yes, for most part this was a fun episode. But Ted and Robin still need a few touchdowns in the laughs department.
