Wow, I could see the ending coming but it was still unsettling.

Neither story was very funny but I still liked it. I agree the ending was obvious but it was still very well done. HIMYM pulls this stuff all the time but still manages to pull it off well.

My problem is that they're turning Barney and Robin into Ross and Rachel. This show was always the "next generation" of Friends but I was hoping they'd stay away from these things. She likes him. He likes her. They date. They break up. He isn't over it. She isn't over it. He is over it. She is over it. She's back in love but he's in a relationship. Now he's back in love and she's in a relationship. We know they'll end up together. I'll give this show all the credit in the world if they manage to have Barney marry someone else at the end.

The whole wooing Nora story seems like a waste of time now. What were they a couple for, 2 or 3 episodes?

Not at lot of laughs for me in this one and I don't know how I feel about the direction they're going with Barney and Robin. Having Barney get fucked so bad seems like a pretty dark twist, though obviously the writers will turn things around for him.

One line that did get me is "SHE KNOWS!" from a horrified Marshall.

Not the best but still a solid show.

The guy that made out with Lily played Todd in Community earlier in the season, and was on Modern Family as well.

I thought the "serious" stuff with Marshal last season was well-done, but I don't like it when it comes to Barney and Robin.

The guy sitting next to Ted with the weird beard's getting around.

The actor's been on New Girl, Modern Family, Community and HIMYM... all this season.

He's the go-to guy when they need a hipster.
