In my opinion, the latest HIMYM episode was another success achieved. The main theme of 'I'm too old for this sh... stuff' was brilliant, especially with NPH's performance, everything was genius in his character! From the Laser Tag addiction (the records on the score-board in the owner office were all from 'Stinson') to the bleeding ear.
The plot was about Lily's and Marshall's methods to educate kids. It was ok, slightly but it isn't comparable to the main plot of this episode. And the telepathic conversation was just repetitive and predictable.
All in all, it was a great episode, but they can do better.
I hope that now, that the season is ending, they keep up the good job they've done in the last few episodes and hopefully give us some amazing episodes to end the season.
(And I also hope it gets renewed!)
