Now this is a great sitcom. I actually like every character. This episode continued from last season’s cliffhanger where Robin and Ted got together at the same time that Lilly left Marshall. While Marshall wallows in self pity, Robin and Ted are in the honeymoon phase of their relationship. Lilly is generally absent until the end but most important of all, Barney is still Barney. He is truly the king of awesomeness and makes every scene he is in great.
I know the show has gotten flack for the challenge of its premise particularly the first episode revelation that Ted and Robin don’t get together but I don’t care. As long as each episode has me laughing as hard as this one while simultaneously making me give a crap about what happens to each and every character, I’m going to be watching for a long time.
