How I Met Your Mother's fifth season definitely belongs to Barney and Robin. On last night's episode, Robin was getting sick of Barney being such an insensitive boyfriend, that Barney was actually ready to make some changes not to lose her.
And what better man is there to learn the nuances of being a sensitive boyfriend to Robin than Ted? Barney decides to secretly enroll in a class with Ted to learn how to be a better boyfriend.
Meanwhile, silly Marshall, clearly depserate for a plotline, tries to find a new home for an old beer barrel he once used as a nightstand. Find out if it found a new home in our "Robin 101" recap.
