Lily's cleavage was the clear highlight of the episode.

What was this series supposed to be about, I forget every few episodes??

Really, has any show thrived after adding a baby? It's a show killer like when two not dating leads finally get together. I'm going to try and make it a couple of more episodes, but I don't think I can.

This used to be one of my favorites, my wife still enjoys the show though.

I just don't understand why Robin was so into being a godparent because she never wanted to have kids. Maybe it's because she can't have kids?

Ending was too predictable with all 3 names.

On a positive note, I did like the montage of Barney singing "children's" songs.

The only funny joke was Barney ripping on Ted for not being able to get over girls.

Barney, Ted and Robin were being dicks to Marshall and Lily. They have a newborn and they're upset that they don't stay out till 4am anymore. Great friends right there.

To be fair the "8 or higher" rule was pretty douchey.

I thought it was a good episode by this season's standards.

Best part was learning about the new Barney book. The library already has a copy on hold for me.

As far as this show has gone recently, this episode just barely made the "8 or better" category. Nothing amazing, but it had some decent laughs and clearly much better then the last couple.

They should just rename it "How Your 'Cousin' Marvin Was Raised" at this point tho.

I thought it was great. I laughed a lot. I'm sure my wife was annoyed at me, she stopped watched like 3 season ago. LOL!

Seemed like a pointless filler episode to me. It sucks, because as good as this show once was the thing I look forward to most about it now is complaining about it. Sigh.

the 8 or higher rule was perfect when applied to Ted though. He is, always has been, and always will be a whiny bitch

I think it was the best episode of the season (not hard to do). The game was funny, and Lily rocked as Vanna White. They missed a couple opportunities like joking about how long Ted's stories take. Also, why are Victoria and Nick on for just about 30 seconds?

Because their characters are pointless. We know it, the creators know it. So why waste our time even more than they already are with storylines that are going to go nowhere. SO dumb.

Their characters didn't have to be dumb. The creators should have been able to create a decent storyline for Ted and Victoria. They did in season 1 and again last season. I think the replacement NFL refs are doing the writing this season.
