  • Ted finds out that his architectural project was shut down... a month ago.

    Wow, this season has really been a roller coaster ride, I'm not saying it's a good thing. Some of the episodes this season have been downright terrible, and others have been awesome. This is not one of the awesome episode. Like I said in another review, the work episodes never set well with me. But that wasn't the problem here. The plots were just not good. Ted finds out that his architectural project was shut down... a month ago, turns out his friends made up a task force so they can listen to his designs. He soon gets a chance to design another room in the building, the place where people get fired. The only remotely funny scene was when Barney was firing people, and you were a security camera's eye view. The only funny scene. Then Ted gets fired, so by the end he decides to start his own firm. Lets wait & see how this unfolds. The Robin plot was just as terrible, Marshall & Lilly have to guess which Canadian celebrity she slept with, that's all they do throughout the whole episode, just look through By the end, they find out, and it wasn't even funny or anything. Which was the point, but still it was pretty much a waste of time. We also find out that Robin was the one who asked about the inappropriate sex act, not the Canadian "celebrity" which was supposed to be funny, but I didn't laugh. Mediocre episode, with some development.
