I actually didn't think it was that bad. Not laugh out loud. But not bad. The birth of grunge was hilarious.

Of course they make Ted get with Drew Barrymore 2.0

She gave an interview a few years ago where she gave an indepth interview on how much she misbehaved while touring Canada as the sweet innocent princess-- it is still on line somewhere

I thought the episode was hilarious. Best episode in the last few seasons in my opinion.

Much better than a lot of recent episodes where the characters are just plain stupid for laughs.

I don't know, it wasn't too bad. I still think the episode with Marshall becoming a diva is the worst this season if not the whole series.

Ted's story arc was annoying and they were definitely pushing the Canadian stereotypes.

This show might have turned into crap but if this becomes a permanent part of the menu then I'm happy.

That was such a stupid episode. So predictable too, every joke they told has been told in an episode before. The 1-dimensional aspect of the characters is sticking out even worst than it would in a family type 90s sitcom where they have actual jokes rather than the characters doing/saying stupid things you're supposed to laugh at. There's 0 genius in this show anymore, not even one of the top 10 sitcoms this season.

And the ending....Ted being with his gf so they can "crazy together"....wtf is that?

I'm a big HIMYM fan, and I'll usually like the episodes that everyone else here says sucked. But tonight's episode was one of it's worse. The scenes with Robin/Lily and the baby thing was absolutely horrendous.

I thought last nights episode was pretty funny. It's pretty much what this show is at this point. If you can accept that, I think you'll be ok with it... If you're expecting the quality of seasons 1-5, you're going to be massively disappointed.

I think it was a really good episode. The scenes between Lily and Robin were annoying. They interupted the flow of the episode and got repetitive.

This was the best part of the episode. Actually...the only good part of the episode. I love this show, but sitcoms should not be on TV this long for fear of this stuff happening. I remember when Ted was one of the funnier parts of the show, now it's carried by NPH, Smulders and Segel. They have turned Ted into SUCH a wiener, it makes me want to vomit all over my television.

Pretty much. Tyson saved that episode...the Ted storyline is pretty sucky, and the whole Robin/Lily thing was meh.

I can't imagine choosing to watch a show (or do anything) that makes me feel that way.

Find is funny all the people pissed off over the Tyson Cameo

Tyson did the crime, did his time and has not broken any laws for awhile (Bad judgements aside)--

Not that I can stand the guy, but he has the right make fun of his image

Was expecting this episode to be a disaster. You guys are trying not to like this show if you thought this episode was bad. Was it seasons 1-5 good? No. But it was definitely one of the better episodes of the last two seasons. Yeah the Lily/Robin stuff was annoying but it was worth it in the end. I thought the episode was great to be honest.

Episode was attrocious. If i wanted pathetic repetitive laughs i'd just lob out my **** in the middle of the high street.

The whole episode is so ridiculously slap stick ; every bad joke is perpetuated over and over again. Why does every joke or character issue have to be over emphasised to the point where it isn't funny?

Ted's Girlfriend has anger issues ... we get it. So she gets angry at a sports event, they bang, she destroys his house, they bang, she presumably sets something on fire in the future, they bang ... they stay together for awhile ... they bang. Because all this is witty clever comedy.

Robin has issues with children ... we get it. So no one has realised this in 8 months. So she decides to tell a really mundane story bit by bit over 17 years. OK LET ME LEAVE MY REALISM TIME MACHINE.

None of the shows relationships are remotely believable. It's so far out of reality it's absurd. This is fine if thoe show deliberately using absurdity to highlight a point, or if the absurdity is even funny.

A cameo from Mike Tyson isn't funny. Har har har .. it's Mike Tyson.

The only reason i watch this show anymore is because i wish to see who the mother is. I know i should stop watching, i know, but the ending is close enough.
