    How I Met Your Mother "The Final Page" Review: The Robin

    The last episode of 2012 showed us that the series is ready to take action... and so is Barney Stinson.

  • Episode Summary

    Part 1 of 2. Robin takes steps to have Patrice fired from WWN, while Marshall puts a jinx on Barney. Later, Ted invites his architecture professor to the dedication of the GNB building; and Marshall and Lily bump into an oddball acquaintance from college.

    • Exceptionally pathetic.

      4.0
      This episode was up there with the most pointless ones. Please note that I am only inferring Part One when I say this. Part Two was flawless, but Part One was a trainwreck.



      I didn't lauh g even once. I wasn't interesting with the storyline or anything.



      Just an overall disaster for me. No more to say.
    • The Pit

      9.5
      This episode was wonderful; gave everyone screen time and united them with the common theme of the pit and who they'd put in it. The message might have come across as a little heavy-handed by some, but I feel it was balanced by the episode's comedy and its drama of Barney's saga. The on-going jinx didn't get old, either, because it served that purpose of letting Ted (and hence the audience) in a little bit on Barney's plan (which I'm convinced he has now, as opposed to where I stood last week). I loved this week's interaction between Robin and Patrice, too, as it had some sort of depth to it rather than just Robin's banshee shrieks.moreless
    • Well the title was a let down

      8.0
      As I saw my tv listings for today the title "The Final Page" really caught my eye. It gave us a hint of dread as I thought "They are wrapping it up too quickly!!!" and a exasperated sigh of relief that it did not happen. However I do think the next season should be it. They cannot carry it on for a few more because frankly it is getting a little tiring and Ted is not going to end up married otherwise until he is actually 40.

      Step it up people make the next season awesome and then let it go.moreless
