  Robin feels like she needs to meet in the middle with Barney’s quirkier habits, and  Marshall feels like he needs to keep Lily from developing some of her own. Meanwhile, Ted’s rooted to the couch for Woodworthy Manor, the show’s parody of our very own BBC smash hit, Downton Abbey. Or so I assume. Don’t you dare reach for that dresser vase. Time for the recap. When Robin “persuades” Barney to sell his Fortress, she books the apartment for an open house and divulges for our viewers many of Barney’s patent-pending inventions. They may not be strict selling points,...

     I still wonder if Barney and Robin are literally “uncle” and “aunt”? Time will tell come Ted’s own wedding! The episode begins, however, with The Wedding.

Unfortunately, the old Professor’s untimely words—“You’ll never be an architect”—remain unchanged. But this ties into the hinge of the episode, The Pit...

     I’ve noticed an HIMYM episode trend lately: funny, funny, funny, leaving the blogger shocked. In the time it took to discover what Marshall, Lilly and Robin were doing in closets, we leapt to the predictable, the problem, and the pleading. Unless I was the only one pleading: pleading for Barney and Robin to get back together before the end of this series. I still hold hope. We lead the episode with the overarching problem of Ted Mosby’s things. Or, they would be his things, PROPERTY OF TED MOSBY and all, if they weren’t in the corners of his...
