Recap

The gang heads to St. Cloud, Minnesota for the funeral of Marshall’s dad.

While his friend’s struggle to find a way to help him cope, Marshall tries to recall the last words his father spoke to him. Lily allows Marshall’s mom to take out her frustrations on her.

Robin gains quite a reputation as Vice Girl thanks to her purse of goodies she brought. Ted and Barney try their best to lighten the mood by showing Marshall Internet clips of people getting hit in the nuts, but fail to bring a smile to their forlorn friend’s face.

In the end, a final message from a pocket dial brings Marshall peace and he is able to say goodbye to his father. The rest of the cast, moved by the moment, take time to call their respective fathers, but Barney’s call to his mother is the most poignant as he announces he is ready to meet his dad.

Amazing how perceptions differ. For me, a faithful viewer of HIMYM, this was the worst episode ever. Bad writing, a tone that swerved mindlessly, and sickly saccerine sentiment coupled with no wit or charm whatever, made this poorly conceived and written oiece a disaster. Shame on them for spoiling a great series!

I almost forgot to mention as I always do to everyone everywhere: Cobie Smulders is gorgeous!
'nuff said!

Jason Segel is tiring to watch. He plays this one character in every show and movie he's in. Yes, even Freaks and Geeks. I know any episode where he's the focus of the plot it's gonna be a dull show (except for Barney's shenanigans). Ted should be the only character playing the straight man off everyone else's quirkiness. But it seems Segel is trying to compete for that spot. Segel and Seth Rogen have got to go.
