How I Met Your Mother Review: "The Perfect Week"
Welcome back, How I Met Your Mother, oh how we missed you!
On "The Perfect Week," we once again realized why we love single Barney so much. I am not a huge sports fanatic, but it was pretty awesome to have a Yankee make a cameo on HIMYM. And not just any Yankee, but Nick Swisher. He is super delicious.
The play by play between Barney and Jim Nantz was fantastic. Especially when Nantz got up and kicked the chair due to Lily saying jinx multiple times.There is one thing I do know, when it comes to sports fans alike are all rather superstitious.
The interaction between Nantz and Barney really had me rooting for Barney to land the seven girls - and that is a feat because normally I would just be disgusted by that kind of whorish actions.
We got to give it up also for the gang's sub story-lines. Who on earth shares a toothbrush? I have to admit, in dire circumstances I have had to borrow one, but making in a routine thing? That is just gross. Good job adding humor to it by having the whole gang use just one.
Lily and Marshall's quest to find that perfect couple to double date with is also awesome. Time after time they just can never make it work. It's like in a sense they too are waiting for Ted to meet his future wife. We bet it would be the best couple to double date with ever!
Poor Asian girl in Ted's class - what an awfully funny name! Cook Pu!? However you spell it, it is awesome. This brings up an interesting point - Asian's tend to be extremely bright people. Usually the first in anything technologically advanced, so why do they love to have such funny name for things. I swear most of the Asian restaurants I love have names like Poon or sound like Fook you. It's great. I just feel bad for the people that get stuck living in America with those names. Time to go to your local DMV and get that changed!
We thought this episode was pure comic gold. And had to give it 4.5 stars. What did you guys think? What was your favorite line? Here are a few of our favorite How I Met Your Mother quotes from last night:
