All time low.
I'm sticking to the end to see it played out. But it isn't easy.

In the future scenes, they worked really hard to make sure you never saw Robin's left hand.

Bleck. I always wonder if the actors know it's a sub-par episode, or if after every wrap they're all "Yeah, NAILED IT! Wheres my Emmy?!"

On the long-ago mentioned "Barney Crazy to Hot Scale", this chick is noway hot enough to put up with that crazy. She's "likes her cats way too much" cute, not "trash your stuff" hot.

Nepotism--she's played by the daughter of Lilly's dad.

(She also looked cuter on SNL for some reason)

I guess I was the only one that liked this episode. I even LOL'ed at a couple of scenes. Specially with the red boots.

I thought it was funny when they did The Departed.
"I think she's a KAWP!!"
"I didn't know she was a KAWP!!"

The baby thing was just dreadful, even with Tyson.

Agree on both counts. The Departed spoof was the only thing that got me to actually laugh.

I laughed when Lily called him Senator Mike Tyson in the 17 years later scene.

But that's really it.

At least we know this is Ted's last girlfriend until he meets the mother. I don't know how long it'll take for him to meet her but at least we know we won't be stuck with any more annoying girlfriends, and imagine this one will be dumped sooner rather than later.

I liked it too.

Senator Tyson. The boots. Kawp. The Boba Fett outfit (though the sword seemed kind of silly to have with it).

8 more episodes until the final season, it'd be odd if he has nothing for the entire final season.

Liked the red boots gag, but not much else. Oh and Barney telling Ted they bought him a sub and a mouthful Marshall shaking his head 'no' was good.

I wouldn't be surprised if we meet the mother at the end of this season. I'm pretty sure they were planning on having the series end at the moment he meets the mother. But I think with them getting picked up for another season even the writers feel that they've gone long enough without introducing her.

I mean if they technically want to be stupid about it, he didn't meet their mother until she gave birth to one of them, correct?

I'm half expecting this to end up with Ted crazy, in the loony bin telling stories to his caretakers (Marshall and Barney), hitting on his doctor (Lily) and not actually have kids, or a wife. With occasional visits from his sister Robin.

I'd have expected Barney to have a higher quality bob fett outfit considering his storm trooper armor appears to be high quality. the fett outfit looked a bit amateurish

Re: How I Met Your Mother -- "Bad Crazy" -- 2/11/13

It was a good episode but I didn't like Lily this episode. First she said that she's never pursued her dream but that's exactly what she did in the first part of the second season and she just hated it. Then she says her best days are behind her meanwhile she a newborn baby. Then she takes the job because judging art for some d-bag is better than being a kindergarten teacher.

But yeah other than that I liked the episode. I like when they do these type of episodes. Also happy to see them 'eating sandwiches'.
