  • Simply... Waitforit... disappointing...

    Oh well, Lily was in labor and Marshall out of reach. So it was up to Robin and Ted to comfort her while Barney and Marshall tried to get back to New York. Of course Marshall got there just in time for little Marvin's birth and giving him the most stupid middle name ever...



    However, the comedic value of this episode was completely lost upon me:

    - apparently, Lily had to act like a horse or had to be treated like one by Robin, eating carrots, sugar cubes, getting groomed... I don't know, I guess I didn't get it. My ears kept ringing throughout the episode from Lily's howling and neighing though...

    - Lily asked Robin and Ted to distract her with stories from her pain. From the cursed trousers, Not Neil Young, the magic door, they were all boring... Maybe Barney's naked Terminator in the alley was not that bad. Classic Barney...

    - and I don't even want to start with Marshall and Barney's adventure. In this season the writers played the "let's get our characters drunk and let's make them do stupid things" way too often...

    - Barney got to choose the baby's middle name because he got Marshall back to Lily just in time. And it was Waitforit...



    In the end, there was just nothing behind this magic door...
