  • Barney undercover!

    This is one of the funniest episodes in this season--and indeed the entire series. Excellent direction and writing. The plot twists are nice and there is an element of surprise which is a nice change. As Barney seeks to uncover who the culprit is, he breaks into Weaver's store at night at the same time that Mr. Weaver is also checking on things. The scene where they are both in there, knocking things around, and each thinking he has caught the robber is priceless! I was laughing out loud. Extremely funny, primarily by Barney's amazing sight gags and his physical comedy. Barney as the mannequin is a HIGH mark and definitely something to see!!! This is indeed a classic episode.
