This was a pretty average-ish episode, but it did have some good moments. Liliy and her father was interesting, as was Marshall with his and Robin with her interesting NYE.
Ted and Barney's bar 'Puazzles' was hilarious! Some really great scenes there!
But in terms of the storyline, I don't feeel as though we went anywhere. I hope that there is some improvement next week, but this was not a bad episode at all.
Can't wait for more Mother! ;D
