    • Had good and bad.

      8.0
      Another episode which had good elements from sure, but also some disappointing elements.



      The storylines were interesting for the most part, especially with Robin and the ring effect. But what ahppened with Ted and Barney and a certain someone else was not really that great. It was just boring and unnecessary to me.



      Seems to be a trend with recent episodes that they have good and bad elements but I hope the next one can improve.moreless
    • Poor form writers

      As an extremely dedicated HIMYM fan, I was really disappointed by this episode. It wasn't funny and it seemed to jump all over the place, the episode just didn't flow.

      Very disappointing. Looking forward to some better stories in the coming weeks.
    • Geekery~

      8.0
      This episode really appealed to my geekhood. It felt a lot like older episode humor, too, which was very welcome after the flop after flop present in the majority of season 8. I'm not sure how I felt about Ted getting with another girl so close to what would have been the end of the series, but with season 9 in sight, I suppose I can get over it. I'm not sure I buy the super lovey-dovey Barney and Robin yet, but I'm sure they'll find their stride. Good episode overall.moreless

      How I met your mother is back! I don't want to speak too soon, but the past couple episodes have reminded me of the older seasons I fell in love with. I love the relationship dynamic and the relationship between Robin and Barney. Ideally HIMYM will be renewed for their 9th and last season, giving us a season to get to know the mother we have been waiting for. I hope they keep it up and don't disappoint.moreless
    • I didnt expect this!

      7.5
      I laughed several times! This is a long fogotten feeling when it comes to Himym!

      Ring up was a really good episode! I dont want to spoiler so I wont say more.... except:



      Why are all jokes made by Lily and marshall so predictable? Everytime, and twice here... its better not to show them at all.
