Space Teens was great, Barney was great. The friend stuff was indeed boring, and the ending was horrible. Ruined an otherwise good episode.

This.

Any episode that wasn't a steaming pile would have been the best ep of the season, but this was a legitimately great episode.

Not only was it funny ("big bowl of porn flakes" ftw) and brought back Robin Sparkles, but douchey Ted was at his most hilarious ("when a second uterus plumped becomes..." "Ted! Feel the room!") and most importantly...

We actually found out whose wedding it was in the season premiere. Now it's just a matter of finding out why that one college girl's roommate would be invited to Punchy's wedding.

Also that kills my theory that it was Robin and Barney's wedding, which I am really happy about.

Very good episode. The past couple episodes have been so good that I'm starting to believe that they've righted the ship a bit and can finish this season strong.

And how did I forget to mention my favorite scene -- Barney delivering the machine-gun fire series of reality show elimination catch phrases. Not only was his pace breathless and admirable, but his mimicking of some of the voices (especially Phil Keoghan of Amazing Race) was spot-on. NPH FTMFW.

I apparently liked this episode a lot less than the rest of you guys. I thought other than the Robin Sparkles stuff the rest sucked (Lily has gone WAY downhill and the whole friendship thing was lame too). I also don't necessarily think the wedding from the premiere is Punchy's wedding as it 1) wouldn't be in NY, and 2) why would Marshall be involved in the wedding? In order for the mother to be in Cleveland she must have some loose affiliation to Punchy or his bride. And I dunno, I don't think I want Ted with anyone who is attached to Punchy or whatever lame bride would marry him

haha oh yeah that was great.

awesome first ten minutes to the episode but then i thought it got weaker. still one of the better episodes this season but it didn't live up to the start.

i was also hoping to see barney pick up a girl using the boutonniere.

Uh... lol wat

So you think the writers brought back an old character like Punchy, brought him to visit Ted in NYC, concocted a wedding, and made a point to show that Ted is going to be the best man at said wedding, and yet the wedding we saw in the premiere where Ted is the best man -- is not Punchy's?

Wow.

Best episode of the season by a big margin. Space Teens was hilarious, NPH was hilarious, lily subplots have become insufferable. Punchy is way too annoying to be on screen for more than 30 seconds but the Lebron line was good. The humor was still a little too broad overall and the emotional scenes didn't connect so it still fell short of classic HIMYM. But it is a step in the right direction.

Oh wow, i just realised they are going WAY back.

Ted and the mother didnt just have their lives circling round each other during the events of the series (one of my big theories on what they will reveal), they are going to have them growing up in the same town and probably going to the same school and everything. She is involved not because the bride of Punchy knows her in NY, but because she knew her from back home and her.

Also im pretty convinced one of the extras in one of the big parties, esp the first halloween one, is going to get a big break so they can have the situation where she just happened to be in the background of that event when Ted wasnt looking for "her", he was looking for penguin girl.

Edit, ok Buff kinda said similar, tho i ignored him cos he is clearly a terrible poster.

It is likely a 24 ep season and we are 9 eps in. They can easily have a short will they/wont from like 15-20 when she eventually walks away to stay with her husband. Or what i think is more likely is they acknowledge an attraction but neither act on it.

There is no specific reason to write of Zoey and they certainly arent pressed for time if we are assuming the wedding is the season finale.

private joker,

Leading us to believe this is the wedding from the season premiere, but it really isn't, is exactly the kind of thing the writers might do. Yes, of course it's "obvious" this is the wedding we're waiting for, and I do think it is, but there's still at least a 5% chance it isn't, just because the writers want to create twists imo.

DKSr,

Guess you forgot about last week's episode which was the stone cold worst HIMYM episode ever?

What? The one in the museum? That was really good. There was a real classic HIMYM feel with that one.

****, sorry, you're right. I meant the one two weeks ago, with the car alarm, the incompetent GNB worker, etc.

Yeah, figured you were talking about that one. At first I thought I got them mixed up, then I looked it up.

BTW, while looking it up, I saw that the museum episode was written by Thomas & Bays and this last one was by Kourtney Kang, who seem to write mostly good to great episodes. They use a lot of different writers on this show (but only 1 director for all but 7 episodes), so you can see how there is so much inconsistency in quality.

Chuck Tatham, who wrote the awful episode is question, only wrote two other episodes , the one with Ted's sister & the Minnesota themed bar/first Hoser Hut appearance, plus the Canadian trip/return of the Hoser Hut one. Those were actually pretty good episodes, so not sure what went wrong with this one.

Good ep, other than baby/pregnancy humour which always sucks.

I agree that NPH's reality catchphrase soliloquy was A+.

This may be explained in the next 8-10 episodes. They could easily have Lily and Marshall become close with them somehow as a couples thing and just write in he doesnt have a lot of guy friends so he asks Marshall.

Why did Barney nearly slap Marshall when thinking Robin's show was a porno?

Because he would have won the slap bet from season 2 (?)
