    this episode was aired on the day i had my son Jason..its was great i got to watch it a week later and thought it was an somewhat important episode
  • Not very impoartant, but pretty funny.

    Well I was'nt too impressed by the storyline in this one, but I thought there were lots of luaghs. I wasn't too sure I liked how we kept going back and forth three years, but in hindsight it was pretty interesting and a good concept.



    I don't think that this was too great of an episode, but it's getting there.
  • The gang realize they aren't where they thought they'd be three years prior.

    It starts with Star Wars in 2000. Not only do Ted and Marshall make a pact to watch the entire series of films once every three years, they, along with Barney, imagine their lives then. Marshall wants to be married and have Lily expecting by 2003 (when the sitcom hasn't even started yet) but that is obviously a dream as they didn't get married until 2007 and are just now having their first kid. Even though Marshall doesn't have his desired mustache either, he's coming further along than Ted, who keeps dreaming he'll have found his soul mate by the next Star Wars night. However, he doesn't. Meanwhile, Barney keeps envisioning himself with another hot girl and letting her through the door saying "You'll be seeing a lot more of ________" only for him to never call her again. However, the episode takes a nice turn, especially for Barney, when he tells the guys they'll be seeing a lot more of Quinn and this time he means it. However, Ted's still stressing about his future. In 2015, he depressingly sees himself losing hair and still single. But if it wasn't guaranteed the show would end after eight years, it was now. The end of the episode shows actual 2015 Ted and he is holding his newborn baby who is the daughter. Obviously, no mother is shown but it was a heartwarming scene and nice to see. Like everyone else, I can't wait to see the mother is, especially after this very nicely put-together episode.moreless

    What a great episode, though I have to admit the beginning wasn't very funny but the end, woah!

    I really like Quinn, she's just made for Barney and please, please don't let her go away!



    The only disapointment comes for Robin, where's the projection of her life. She's been portrayed as a hot, stupid chick in the entire episode. That's not fair. All the gang deserves something good after all these years!moreless
  • Recapped!

    Amazing show, and will always be top three shows of all time for me. This episode particularly was incredibly written, and really well directed, but since we are nearing the end, it would be nice if there was a sense of moving forward (besides the Barney and Quinn scene which was great). Overall this episode felt more like a recap episode for people who haven't seen the entire show from beginning to end, and the characters rehashing old stories, which is the only thing that bothered me a little - I preferred the one before it: "the Broath," hahaha that one was great - especially since it was a Barney heavy ep. Despite all that, still a really great show, very funny stuff - cant wait till "Now We're Even" next week!!!!moreless
