  • A man, Barney in a boring marriage sees that his home has a parallel world in it and lives vicariously through it.

    That's it in a nutshell and what really makes this episode rather tame is the fact that they reveal way, way too early. Another failure the second season is this ability to show too much, too early. No development whatsoever. George Wendt from "Cheers" fame does his character well but again we find out about this world too eary. Likewise the ending is rather silly. We learn well what we learn doesn't seem to matter it doesn't affect Barney directly.



    That's another point to discuss these episodes had rather unsatisfying endings that were just too conventional.moreless
