Loved this episode! Especially Barney singing along with Wayne Brady and Ben Vereen!
And then he comes back with autotune at the end!!

I think the Barney's father plot is stupid, unbelievable, and completely over the top. However, I did get a chuckle out of him singing with Brady & Vereen.

I agree that Barney singing was the highlight of the episode.

Good episode. Fun to see Barney's family again.

Robin over/underselling Ted was pretty funny too.

I thought it would be funny if Bob Barker really ended up being Barney's dad.

Wasn't a very good episode, especially after last week. As mentioned the only thing that was truly funny was Barney singing backup.

That's what I was expecting.

Another good line: "Dad look how fast I can run!"

Barney seems like a smart guy. I can buy him as a child believing his mother's lies and that belief carrying through to adulthood.

But Barney thinking that he was black was just too unbelievable, even for this show.

He didn't think he was black - he specifically admitted that he knew better, he just thought he wanted the experience.

Neither did I. I only laughed at the Auto-Tune bit at the end.

I liked Barney's storyline, even though it stretched credibility a little bit that Barney would believe EVERYTHING his mother said. But I loved the little bits like "Dad look how fast I can run" and the autotune. Robin and Ted's storyline was just dumb. Not as strong as last week, but still entertaining.

Barney being the only real funny part is nothing new and why I've always considered this a mediocre show that I keep watching because I like the actors involved a lot (other than the guy who plays Ted).

Last week's episode seems like a one off rather than a trend to be a truly well balanced funny show again.
