How I Met Your Mother -- "Glitter" -- 11/15/10

"Glitter"
Spoiler:
When Barney finds a copy of the kids show featuring Robin s alter ego, the friends learn more about her past as a performer than they expected.

Great episode. The Robin Sparkles stuff was hilarious. The Ted stuff? Not so much. Loved Ted and Barneys reaction to the beavers.

That was awesome, I couldn't tell if that was Nicole Scherzinger, but it was for sure. Great Episode, on par with the first Robin Sparkles episode.

Damn, this episode had me laughing from beginning to end. As soon as I read this was a "Robin Sparkles" episode, I knew this couldnt be bad!

Phenomenal episode. Loved all of the Robin Sparkles stuff, loved how they stopped the DVD the first time when the answer was going to be 69, loved when they were talking about how many inches of wood a beaver could take, loved how the spaceship was a curling stone, loved it all.

The Space Teens/porn tie-ins were fantastic! The rest of the show was pretty blah, but Robin and Jessica and the innuendo were hilarious.

The video and Ted and Barney's reactions to it were great.

So the Cle buddie's Wedding might actually be the wedding where we started the season right? Maybe we get the Mother reveal this year after all.

Well you can see why he didn't start the story at Punchy's wedding ... (as if this show would ever have a reveal).

I'm 99% sure that was the wedding from the open. Otherwise there's another best man offer coming for Ted in the next few months.

Loved the episode - Robin Sparkles is one of the greatest characters invented for television. Everything about her is a comedy gold mine.

I'm in full agreement! This one was a real return to what has made the show great over the years. It's nice during the episode when it feels like the writer is a big fan of the show and adds in a lot of little touches, like the slap bet reference before Barney hit 'play.'

No one has mentioned the almost slap bet(?)(I am assuming as I didn't follow the show on a regular basis the past two seasons). I LOL as Barney turned his face and braced himself as Marshall reared back with was sure to be a monstrous slap.

Unless I'm reading your post wrong, you have that backwards. Barney was about to slap Marshall because if Robin's show turned out to be porn, then Barney was originally right (back in season 2) and would have won the slap bet in the first place.

you are correct...barney was about to slap marshall. I remember reading someone lamenting the slap bet had not been seen in a while.
However I do not remember the particulars of the bet.

The Space Teens bits may have been the funniest thing this show has ever done. Fantastic episode!

Yeah - an episode just of Space Teens (and Nicole S. ) would have ruled. Hilarious. Rest was meh.

I lost it when they started talking about beavers on Space Teens. Ted and Barney's reaction was priceless. I don't know if anyone else noticed, it was only on screen for a split-second, but when Sparkles and Glitter were about to solve the last problem, Alan Thicke put his hands behind is head, lol. I loved how EVERYONE in the Canadian bar knew the words to The Beaver Song.

The whole pregnancy storyline is kind of getting annoying now, but maybe the episode was the writers acknowledging that and we won't hear as much about it anymore. Ted's storyline was okay, but at least it sort of moves him forward a little bit.

You're probably right but I wouldn't be surprised to see another twist coming. After all, what were Barney, Robin, Marshall and Lilly doing at Punchy's wedding?
