weird, isnt it. Robin and Kevin are a couple. Lily and Marshall have a Housewarming Party and he isnt there...
I loved this ep. but i missed some story telling. I mean RObin and Barney - all good now? etc ...
Maybe my elation from Sunday's Super Bowl victory carried over and clouded my judgement, but I'm going to stick to my guns here. I love the differing opinions though. They all serve to halp keep me honsts and clear eyed. I do agree with most of you that Chris Elliot is the character equivalent of nails on a chalkboard but until recently he has been a neccesary evil at times, but I agree he has overstayed his welcome. In his defense I feel he is pretty much typecasted in these kind of roles. Good point about Kevin not being there "M", or not even a mention of him.
I like the premise (showing room by room falling apart in five minutes), but this episode really needed to advance the plot. Hopefully next week we'll see some real story arcs.
Over the years, the ensemble casts should be nominated for a SAG Awards !
I thought this was the worst episode in the history of HIMYM. It wasn't even funny.
Please, vote for Barney/Robin!http://uk.eonline.com/news/watch_with_kristin/tvs_top_couples_vote_final_four/291861
Very sorry Chris but I too disagree with your praise for this episode. I actually really enjoyed all of them this season, except for this one. It felt way too scattered, disconnected. Perhaps that's the fault of the story's presentation, as it back skipped each scene. Sometimes it can work (like, in a very long movie). This time it didn't
The Chris Elliott character is uncomfortable to watch, almost always. I get the sense he's re-hashing every character he has ever played. He might actually be a good actor, but I can't determine that from the evidence so far.
I gave it 4 stars because the writing has been so great in earlier episodes.
sorry but i gotta utterly disagree with the reviewer. This episode felt more like filler to me. I thought that the multiple timeline bit was phoned-in and wasnt that great. And i didntg think that the stories within the timelines were that great either. To put it simply it was AVERAGE.....at best. Which is why i was shocked by such a raving review/rating
I dont think this episode was really that memorable and just from this season alone i think that Ducky Tie and Tick Tick Tick are EASILY enormously better than this filler episode.
And I have been a fan since season 1 too, but i will freely admit that after season 3 imho the quality/awesomeness of this show did start to slowly go down. BUT I will say that overall i think this season has been on an upward trend back to its original awesomeness.
Why was Kevin not in this episode? Aren't he and Robin still together? They had tonnes of random people in the back and Marshall's boss at the housewarming party but not Lily's best friend's boyfriend?
I too am not a big fan of Christ Elliott... He drags down the show.
I agree with the reviewer if your not loving the episodes than maybe its time to let the show go and move on to other shows. This was high up there with my favorite episode of the series (my favorite was when Robin mentioned she worked in red deer Alberta because that's where I am from). Anyways great episode funny lines all around my favorite part was at the end when the lady Barney had just slept with was already calling him her boyfriend and he go to leave naked opens the door and realizes there is bees everywhere and the second he takes on whether he should stay or risk it, it was too funny!
Cont. from comment below: Barney is the head to the show's Voltron no doubt, but if you aren't allowing yourself to appreciate and care about the other dynamic characters around him I feel like you really are missing out on some special stuff. It's like opening a box of cereal to just find the prize at the bottom. There is a lot of substance around it that is just as valuable. HIMYM's cast is the Fab Five of TV sitcoms hBarney as it's Chris Webber, but Webber was made that much more entertaining to watch thanks to his team mates Rose, King, Jackson and Howard. The same goes for Barney. He would not be half the character he is without his friends around him to play off of and he in turn makes them better and more entertaining too. Like I said though to each his own. Differing opinions is what makes life interesting and fun. Keep the comments coming.
Wow where is the love? While I'm all for differing opinions and to each his own and all that jazz I have to say I'm baffled week in and week out by the negativity and disappointment I read in these comments. I feel for the show's writers because having been a fan since season one, it escapes me as to how they could make this show that much better in such a way that it would appease the ever increasingly demanding "fans." I have for sure been critical now and again of certain episodes, but overall I think HIMYM delivers week in and week out. For those of you who seem to be let down more times than not, I guess I would just urge you to be wary of setting the bar of expectation too high for this or any other show that is in your collective wheelhouses. Mondays are such a drag, I just consider us lucky to have such a great show and cast of characters to tune into each week to help start the week of laughing despite still staring down four more days until the weekend cometh.
I also agree with Dyan
i don't think it was a 5 star episode, i thought it was average, but barney made it better at the end haha. i'll give it a 4
i can't wait for becky newton to guest star in the next episode!!!
and i agree with u Dyan
i had a feeling there was too many stuff in one time. also i missed mclarens
Others may disagree, but I really hate Chris Elliott on HIMYM. I don't find his character to be funny at all, in fact he is quite annoying. I hope his little arc on the show ends very soon. Other than that, I was disappointed with this episode.
